I'm shocked I tell you - SHOCKED!!

I was there a week ago. The place was halfway wiped out. I almost want to go over again, but I don't need anything.

Wait..... I just thought of something......

A few tidbits of stupid >

Governor Blackface say schools will stay closed until the next academic year. No summer school, and where do they get the three months they've lost? They should send him all the homework for those; and let him do it.

Had my taxes done at H&R. Had to leave papers at front desk, preparer asked a couple of questions from back end of the cubicles, about 25 feet from me. At least, he thought it was all stupid, too. I picked them up an hour later, decent refund.....

Police in London used truck-mounted loudspeakers to bark orders at sunbathing parkgoers, who took to the grass in apparent defiance of the nationwide lockdown measures.

A video published on social media by the police in Shepherd’s Bush, London, showed police trying to clear a local park of sunbathers, despite the government’s orders to remain inside, introduced to prevent the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

“Can you all go home please, it’s not a holiday, it’s a lockdown, which means you don’t just come here and sunbathe,” the police are heard saying in the video.

“The Government has a lockdown in force, can you please get off the green. Go home,” they commanded.

Beaches are closed down here and you still see a couple of people out there walking on the beach anytime you pass by. I don't think the Sheriff's department get too excited as the goal was to get the spring breakers out of here.

They shut off anymore coming into the park effective tomorrow and are calling cancelling all reservations between 3/26 and 4/15. Should be nice in here for the next 3 weeks as it's pretty sparsely occupied right now. I guess there has been traffic jams heading north as pretty much all the Canadian people that winter down here are heading back home. There is some concern that they may have trouble crossing the border and their medical insurance runs out after 5 months out of the country.

So far no cases reported in this or all abutting counties.

Here is an interactive map that allows you to look at every county in the country and the # of cases reported.

24 cases in my county - 0 deaths.

Crap, I was at the grocery store 24 hours ago....

We bought enough that we can skip it next week.

I think I'll go to the LGS this afternoon anyway. Apparently I'm fearless.

I hope I don't get pulled over by the cops. "Honest officer, I really needed this new Magpul front hand guard for my AR!!!"

NH has 138 cases as of yesterday and in my county there are 56. Looks like we made the right decision so far. I expect by next week if there are going to be any here it will start to hit as the spring breakers were here a week ago.

We don't have problem isolating as we hate people anyway.

Here, all LGS closed, non essential! Got to lower incarceration rates though and death threats increase for Chinese restaurant owners!

Pawn Shops essential, financial! No retail sales! So I am told

Cabelas open for business but curb side pickup only or free shipping over $50. NO FIREARMS! Does not say, no ammo!

We have had two W. Wa. Mayors declare their cities Gun Free and even blocked speekers by force at a City Council meeting, that has not gone over well. Since we are home to Alan Gotlieb and his SAF it should not be long before legal action is taken .

The U.S. has 69,000 cases of Corona with 1,037 deaths. Normal influenza, 36 million cases with 22,000 deaths.

Southwest Virginia where I live has seven corona cases, no deaths.

The entire state has 392 cases, including 101 that were just reported yesterday, and 9 deaths. Normal influenza in Virginia, 11,200 cases with 782 deaths.

Which really deserves the most attention?


I went to Sportsman's Warehouse this morning just to see how bad their silliness was. It could be worse.

Limit 50 customers in store, so they have people counting at the door. Excess waits outside in a line. Limit one gun per day and two boxes ammo each day. Rimfire is restricted to 200 rounds or one bulk pack.

Their handgun racks were stiil pretty full, as were the rifles. Scattered empty spots. The ammo shelves had gaps everywhere. From what I could calculate, still had some of every caliber if you weren't picky about brand and style. They still had a bunch of .22, but most was the pricey stuff like Aguila and Eley, no CCI. No .32 ACP, which I expected, but I have no need now with close to 2K on hand.

According to a Sportsman's customer, Gander Mountain is the "could be worse". They won't let you in the store. They go get what you want and you pay at the door. Similar limits. Customer said he gave them six choices of 9mm before he hit one they still had.

When will the idiocy end ?........

I read liquor stores are staying open because their are so many hard core alcoholics, if they were cut off from their booze, the cases of the DT's would overwhelm the hospitals. The article said the withdrawals for a bad alcoholic are worse than a cocaine/heroin addict.

Yes that would be the case and states want the taxes from alcohol sales.

That's why I reload every caliber I own except obviously rimfire. I may not have a ton of the latest and greatest bullets but enough to keep the zombie hordes away, even down here away from my reloading equipment.

Well I'm going to do my part today to self isolate. I'm heading over to the old St George Island bridge to fish for dinner.

Well, as sh#* happens, just found out my pediatric stroke survivor granddaughter was just hospitalized presumed COVID +, awaiting test results. Unfortunately one of her ongoing issues are the subsequent seizures, needless to say, we are praying for her, just 4 days short of her 24th birthday.

Caught fish I didn't want to, Hardheads and the Whiting were few and small so no fish for dinner. The Spanish Mackerel are in but they weren't after shrimp on the bottom. A guy on the bridge told me they like flashy lures both silver and gold. Got a drawer full back home. Guess I'll look on line as not real excited about running into a store to buy a few even though we still don't have cases in the county here.

Two counties announced their first cases of Coronavirus. They are directly west of us.
I reckon it's only a matter of days that it will be in our county.

Changed the oil and filter and battery in the tractor today. Greased 'er up and mowed for three hours. Two more hours of mowing tomorrow and then onto the next projects. Should be 90* tomorrow. Farmer sprayed the grass fields yesterday, and harrowed the third field today.
Farm people seem to be working as usual.
Went to NAPA for some filters, and they had a yellow tape on the floor, running from the front door to the back of the store. There were signs saying not to cross the yellow line. That kept you six feet from the counter. I tossed the clerk my credit card and he handed me the bag of filters. I've been shopping there for 24 years so I know them well. When I opened the door and saw the tape on the floor, I hollered to Casey, the manager....."am I gonna have to do a sobriety test before I can buy anything?' Then I walked the line.
