The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Glad to hear the glock is working out. I spent 2 weeks reading about handgun technique and I think that has been my problem. I changed my hand position and my overall stance and it seemed to help quite a bit. I shot much better and my hands didn't hurt a bit. After hearing about Marns time a front sight I might see about getting out there or some other shooting clinic.

Right now it's looking like I'm not going to get out until Friday afternoon; apparently this 'ol gray mare ain't what he used to be. :-/

While shooting today, the hammer pin on my polymer lower decided to start walking out. I took it to New Frontier to see what I could do to keep it from happening again. This is the first incident of the sort reported to them. They took my lower apart and measured my hammer pin. It was found to be slightly out of round and outside spec. They replaced the hammer pin and tested my lower to ensure it won't happen again. Big thanks to New Frontier.

Bedside isn't mounted... Just sitting on it. But you get the idea. The body needs some serious fine tuning to get it all aligned again. The glass got all screwy from sitting around too long. Oh and I put about 80 miles on the truck this weekend with no issues other then WAY too much air under the tires at one point. LOL FYI, if you find yourself on a powerline road from running south out of searchlight on the east side of the highway heading towards laughlin... Watch out for about 4 bumps when you're doing about 70mph! They sneak up on you fast and will get your heart pumpin pretty good!

Friend of mine emailed me this picture just now. LOL They're down prerunning the bottom 1/3rd of the baja 1000 course. Said he was looking down marking a previous spot on the GPS and all of a sudden his side of the truck dropped. Said he looked out to see the ground like 7' below him. Whoops!!! LOL

I may have certificates or something i can transfer to you if you want to go out there. I also think NFA sells them.

Funny, I took that picture of the truck in my driveway yesterday afternoon. Between then and now, it's back on stands, tires are off it, old bedside mounts that the glass is just resting on are completely cut off and the rear leafs have been pulled apart and are stripped down to just the main leaf so I can cycle the rear suspension to get the rear shock mounts figured out correctly. Hoping by the weekend to have it sitting back on the ground with rear shocks installed and ready to actually mount the bedsides. Might even have brakes on all 4 corners again finally if the parts we ordered come in!
