    Zombie Report

    Well, I did a Zombie Cull this morning. I shot one round with my Glock 30s and one round with an AR. I didn’t go for speed because I need to work on muscle memory and handling. As a life-long hunter, gun handling is very different than it is for tactical purposes. In ‘tactical’ shooting, and especially for us where we have to be careful to keep all shots into the berm, muzzle down is a MUST. In hunting safety and etiquette, muzzle up, when you’re not shooting at game, is proper. So, I have to learn some new-to-me handling. At the range, I don’t clear my weapon, and let someone else check it, close the slide, dry fire it, and re-holster. I just clear it, check it, and set it down with the slide locked back. I’m getting better- kept muzzle down most of the time today and didn’t get yelled at to watch my muzzle... So, with AR, the rifle low time was 58.24 and my time was 91.68 with no penalty- no misses, and no hits on non-threats. I even had zero penalty (two hits in center-of-mass or headshot) on the pop-up that only stays shootable for about 3 seconds. I shot pretty slowly and deliberately, putting more effort into situational awareness and muzzle control. With my G30s, the handgun low time was 68.85 and my time was 101.18 with a penalty for a hit on a non-threat and one complete miss. In my defense, they had a ‘Zombie’ holding a ‘hostage’ with only about a 5” x 6” headshot showing- and I shot high both times. I also might’ve ‘nicked’ the ‘baby’ that a non-threat was holding pretty close to center-of-mass of one ‘zombie’... :( A good time was had by all. Except the baby.

    Anybody heard from Retcop?

    I mean, I’m not a physician or a microbiologist, just a lowly chemist-turned-social-studies-teacher, but this is what I’ve always thought. If you start taking probiotics, or eating yogurt, or whatever, while you’re still taking the antibiotics, aren’t you just lessening the effect of the antibiotics? Now they’re killing the new bacteria in your gut instead of fighting the infection! Wait until the infection has been dealt with THEN replace the good bacteria...
  6. Interesting. I’m not a wheel-gun guy, myself- except for hunting. But the hallmark of the revolver is consistency and reliability. If you don’t have that- absolute and complete reliability as far as any human-made mechanical device is capable of- then you’re better off with a slimmer, higher capacity auto. I always wanted an 8 shot .22 like an S&W 63, but it’s so hard to beat the accuracy of my 9 1/2” Ruger Super Single Six that I never got one. I guess, by extension, I never even considered a higher cap center fire revolver. John “Remember, no matter where you go, there you are,” —Buckaroo Banzai

    This is the one I’ve been using: ProBiotein. They have a few bars and other products, but I got the plain granulated stuff in a pouch. I put a tablespoon in a smoothie, or even just in a cup of orange juice. I’m pretty happy with it. John “Remember, no matter where you go, there you are,” —Buckaroo Banzai

    I’m going to see your probiotic and raise you a PREbiotic. (I’m not a poker player, but that’s what they say, isn’t it?) I typically haven’t liked supplements and additives (essential oils, Himalayan salt lamps...) I have no reason to believe they don’t work, but I haven’t been shown that they do work. However, I’ve been taking Probiotein for about a year and a half and I haven’t had a single diverticulitis flare-up (previously very unusual for me to go more than a couple of months). I also have been generally healthier. As a PREbiotic, Probiotein feeds the naturally-occurring bacteria in the gut (rather than trying to replace them like a probiotic) and contains proteins, enzymes, amino acids, and dietary fiber that are very beneficial. I’ve only needed an antibiotic once since I started taking 1 or 2 Tbs per day, but I did it without any stomach upset or other problems. VERY highly recommended! Also, I’m glad you’re on the mend.
