A Def Leppard tune. For 80's metal it was well structured & despite the genre I always thought it was one of the better tunes to come out in recent decades. Aside from being musically well crafted lyrically i always dug the tune as it was a departure from the "get high & get laid" theme that was so damn prevalent back then. It's a rock tune (no; not that kind of rock) that is more or less a lament from a guy in his quest for a meaningful relationship. He's just tired of all the casual & insincere situations he seems to be involved in & wants someone who truly cares. Again not typical for mid 80's metal subject matter. Here's the vid.

I just got my Garand back from the gunsmith yesterday. I had it re-chambered for 5.56x45 NATO. I was gonna replace the op-rod for a direct gas impingement system but I'm having trouble find the part I need so that'll have to wait. & A View From The Porch beat me to it but I've just returned from trading in all my single action & DA/SA pistols for a Glock. Actually I turned in all my pistols for 1 Glock because I don't see a need for anyone to have more than 1 pistol. & my new Glock is chambered int he manly .25 ACP which should be more stopping power than I'll ever need.

On a more personal note I shaved my head, decided I really don't cats at all (so I bought a rat dog) & think that whole fresh calabash style seafood thing is waaaayyyy over-rated. I quit smoking & also gave up my iced tea habit. Additionally I registered as both a Democrat & a Republican & I'm wondering whether to speak truth to the power by voting for Obama or Hillary or Giulliani or Romney.

Oh, & after much soul searching I've finally decided that if it was good enough for several generations of Americans then it's good enough for me. I'm going to stop reading blogs & rely on the MSM for all my news. Now if you'll excuse me I have some real estate ads to look at - I just can't decide between Chicago & NYC...

ahh HAAA HAAA HAAA HAAAA haa!! Yeah. You almost had me going for a minute there. It was that part about you not reading blogs anymore that pretty much gave it away, though.

Well the gun stuff should have been obvious to gun nuts but girl... you know me. lol The part about dropping smoking & shaving my head should have made you skeptical at the least. :)

I just regret I didn't mention anything about going vegan & thinking that big government is the solution to any problem. :D

You didn't mention you would be getting the required permit to enjoy the privilege of conceal carry.

And I knew it was fake on the only one pistol crap. I figured the re-chambered Garand was for cheaper ammo or some such thing, (that and you have half a dozen others, or more, in original condition).

yes - the permit thing... there were so many things I should have included that I didn't think of until I left the house. But you believed the Garand in 5.56? Even if I wanted to save on ammo - I - shudder.... :)
