Re: Scope issues....help

My first wife was German, whatever "she" did was "always right". My second wife is American and from Chicago and I think it will not be long before I am on my own again... I'm in the process of renovating the house so it can go on the market... Long list, I'm thinking next spring.

    I'd like to sell my rentals. They are a PITA but the market is zip. Both are nice homes on acreage, both brick with central air but I despise renters. They always have an excuse for everything and at my age, I'm not tolerant of BS. Maybe by next spring, things will loosen up a bit.

    Interestingly, my wife is from suburban Chicago as well. Joilet to be exact.

    When we go to visit, I always leave my pistol in the dresser, at home.

    Chicago has always been bad, especially Cook County. My cousin (on the wife's side) lives in New Lennox (near Joilet) and hunts and has to go through all kinds of crap just to have long guns, let alone shorter ones....

    Well returned home from work, caught a break in the snow and wind and took the rifle to the range. It was operator error, not the equipment. Started the barrel break-in and got it sited at 100 yards roughly. Thanks for all the help.

    In my line of work, I deal with 'Operator Error' a lot. Most times it results in disciplinary action or an extended vacation.
