I Survived!

Made it through my first day at the NRA. It's a lot like drinking from the firehose, only even more so. There will be some changes coming in the blog - I'll have a post up tomorrow morning - but it will be remaining. Yes, eventually the name will change - since I am, in fact, no longer MA-rooned...

Met a whole bunch of new folks, met some folks that I know I've seen at the NRA conventions and SHOT Show. Saw the indoor range - holy smokes, that is cool, both the public range and the NRA's private range for the Publications group. There's a good deal of "new guy" stuff that will (hopefully) be gone by the end of the week or so, but overall, as first days go, this one rocked.

More tomorrow; right now I need to find something in the frosty malt beverage category...

That is all.

Congratulations on a great first day. So glad the blog doesn't have to go away!

Tim said...

Welcome to Virginia Brother! We just need to cleanse the Yankee out of you. Sorry no rotaries or those stinking gun laws.

Shane W said...

Congrats on your first day! I'm glad the blog stays also. Who else could I get my Dead Goblin fix from? ;)

JD said...

Good to hear. . . but it SO makes me want out of MA. . . .

private range for the Publications group

Those are about the most awesome six words I'll ever read in my lifetime.

You done good!

Awesome!

Oh, and an extra +1 for the "UHF" reference.

For new blog name, I nominate 'VA-Rooooomed!

1: Is play-on-words for previous name

2: VA = Virginia

3: Motorcycles! (I seem to recall you had at least a passing fondness for them)

4: The sound made as you went 'foot to the floor' to GTFO of MA

Woot!

Seconded Phssthpok!

He's a Pak protector, he's smarter than us.

I'll bet the NRA makes him discontinue the Dead Goblin count. Too politically incorrect.

Ed said...

The Dead Goblin Count is useful to those who think that the mere sight of a weapon born by their intended victims makes the goblins shake, pee their pants and run. That's only true when the goblins have extreme selective hoplophobia but a lack of self-moderation - a well founded fear of other people's weapons and their full intent to use them to defend themselves yet the goblins still choose goblin behavior.

Might I suggest "VAmoosed" for the new blog name?

Dammit, WmTell beat me to it.

Add my vote for VAmoosed.
