Merry Christmas

Made my annual drive from DC to Georgia last night, and along with it the annual visit to that gunnie mecca - Coal Creek Armory in Knoxville, TN, where I enjoyed some fine time at the firing line with Uncle Gunnie (who has built a sweat 9mm AR-15) and Les. Saw Tam, of Books Bikes and Boomsticks fame there as well, but the store was bustling and busy and every time I turned around she was helping a customer out and I didn't get a chance to say hi.

Oh well, maybe next time (are they open New Years Day???)

Left DC at 4:30 am
Made it to Knoxville by 12 (CCA by 12:17)
Left CCA around 2:30
Picked up our honeybaked ham (christmas dinner) at the store on Gun Barrel Rd in Chattanooga around 3:30
Got to our house at 4:20

One bit of sales advice to the Coal Creek people - they didn't seem to have any more of the Automatics For The People shirts. Thats too bad. When (if??) they get more in, they need to get some toddler and onezees sizes for the next generation. Remember, kids are people too!
