Default Hey Herring.

How's your buddy like his new 1911? Have you taken him to the range yet?

Nope. We went flying airplanes Thursday and he was very hoarse. Yesterday he called to cancel
shooting for today. He'd gone to the hospital, and they diagnosed a severe bronchial infection. He
was not sounding good when he called.

I'm thinking maybe I should go shoot a few boxes of ammo through the gun (to which Harry made a nice
contribution, by the way) just to make sure it works.

What do you think?

Eh, do what you gotta do but I'd leave it for him. I hope he has a good recovery and doesn't go into a double pneumonia. That'd be really bad!

Well, he's said the most enjoyable part of shooting is coming back here, having some coffee, and
cleaning guns. Maybe he'd like it better if it was filthy when he got it.

Yeah, I'm pretty worried about the guy. Called him a couple hours ago. He still sounds like crap.

There is something rewarding about taking things apart and putting
them back together again. When we were "on station" in the ship there
was not a whole lot to do and I got to the point where I could field
strip a M2 and a 1911 in the dark, then put them back together.
The thing I really liked about the CG was, it was not a "union shop"
and they encouraged us learning other things so I started hanging out
with the snipes when I got bored with small arms and learned
machining, welding and some other things that carried my into my old
age.
As long as you looked busy, they left you alone.

Army's the same way. Soldiers that look busy don't get messed with.


When questioned, it helped to be honest too

The only time I ever got in trouble was when the DC chief asked me why
I was working in the armory. I had trouble explaining that I really
worked for the Ordinance Department. I spent so much time hanging out
with the DCs he thought I worked for him.
He was disappointed because he said I was his best striker.
I was an FT but I had also taken the Gunner's Mate 3&2 course and the
Aviation Ordinanceman 3 course ( just started thumbing the book and
thought I would get the bingo sheets) so they just let me go on
looking busy.
