Shotguns and Jazz Clubs

Things have been pretty busy since my return, but I managed to eke out a spot of time for this blog.

I've been itching to get a 870 for quite some time now. Actually, that Mosin I got for Christmas would have been a 870, or even a Su-16CA if I could have afforded it. As it stand now, I can afford the 870, and I would buy the SU-16CA, if one was to be found...well...anywhere! That said, I've been cruising around to all the Turners and several Big-5s in my area(not a chore, as I pass several of these fine establishments during a normal work day), looking for the 870 that I liked most. Being that an 870 is an 870(one being about the same as another) The only requirement I had was that the 870 I purchase had to have ghost ring sights. I managed to find this one:

at the Norwalk Turners, and thought about buying it, then taking it to a smith for ghost rings, but then found out that Remington makes the same model, WITH GHOST RINGS.

Unfortunately, I haven't found any around, and am reluctant to order one without holding it first, but if it really comes down to it, I will.

On an entirely unrelated note, I went to another jazz club the night before yesterday: Cicada Club in LA. It was much different that the first one I went to(see post: Steamers) in that it was more about the dancing than Steamers; Cicada had an actual dance floor, as opposed the the bar-with-live-music that Steamers is. Not to mention that cover charge was only $10USD and there was no drink requirement. The group I went with had around the same number of people, but most of them were new faces. Even better, most of the new faces were female.

Avid followers of my blog will recognize several faces from previous posts.

I had an overall good time, marred by the fact that I had not eaten beforehand and spent the entire night feeling my gastrointestinal system attempt to eat itself. Not pleasant, but not surprising, considering the amount of food I normally have to eat just to maintain my body weight. I'm one of those people that could lose weight by being a couch potato.

Anyways, the Cicada Club, for those of you interested, has a website at http://www.cicadaclub.com. Check it out.

In other news:

Holy crap! Brown won Massachusetts! Maybe there's still Hope(pun intended) against ObamaCare(see post: Facination) after all!

End of the world badassness ensues.
