So for the first time in ten years I won't be with others lighting off fire works.

Instead I'm all alone with pizza, pop, and some TV.

Oh and assholes launching off bottle rockets.

Zap posted his backyard some time ago (a year or more back?) so maybe any thoughts were influenced from that? -o-;

No fireworks for me, just relaxing with Zap's family at home since a lot of them went to see the fireworks (weather's still wonky, but I can hear them being fired off from outside).

Stupid fireworks laws.

Don't tread on me.

Well, at least you can fire them. It's illegal, here. You can buy them, but you can't fire them. Makes no sense.

A few years ago, some stupid kid hurt himself with an M80 and ruined everyone's bottle rocket fun.

People still shoot them off, though. Most of the cops aren't anal enough to arrest people for it, thankfully.

I think it might be the same here? I don't know.

I spent today with my family, including my brother and his family. I didn't play with the nephews today (they just had a sleepover here yesterday, during which I played with them plenty), but I was around them. Sitting out in the back yard, there was something very heartwarming and existence-affirming simply about watching them running around playing with a multi-colored fabric crawl-tube thing. Including running around me while I perused EGF on my laptop in my low back-yard chair in the grass.

One time my dad bought fireworks on the 4th and then fired them off in August because he saw the redneck people living next door to him do it without hassle. It was like, 2nd of August maybe and then the cops stepped in and said "I wouldn't do that if I were you"

My dad tried to defend himself by saying he bought them on the 4th so it's okay, and obviously the cop told him that doesn't matter. This was way back when I was living with him so I was afraid he was in serious trouble.

HAPPY 4TH Evageeks.

I spent my Fourth of July weekend doing what we Americans do best. Drinking, shooting, and more drinking. But not all at the same time.

Kyle and I went to range and I got to fire my Kar98 for the first time. Oh my god, that gun is sexy. She kicks like a mosin, but the action is so much nicer. I think it was the loudest gun on the range, at the time. We've decided to name her "Privilege Czecher". Kyle came up with that one, I was thinking something girly, but I think that one is better.

I'm a little worried about how I cleaned it, though. I'm pretty sure I cleaned her correctly, but I used corrosive ammunition, so I hope I got all the nooks and crannies with the Windex. I'll be keeping an eye on it, but I think I'll just shoot noncorrosive from this point forward, it isn't much more expensive. It's hard to find 8mm mauser in brick-and-morter stores, though.

I've never heard of using Windex to clean a gun before. Usually I just use gun oil and cloth patches.
