ok, Bubba, these were (mostly) pretty good - enough that I'm gonna use them on one of our VPs who promises to buy me lunch if I can give him a good joke. Usually he says my jokes are "corny", but it' worth a chuckle in the morning!

Have a good one - aimin' for pnut butter cookies this weekend!

Yesterday we talked about defending the home.
SKS is particularly suitable foir ladies. It is an effective round for a lady to defend self and children; and has very little recoil.
My wife is 74. My 3006 is a bit much for her. She does well with her SKS. She makes one shot kills on gallon milk jugs of water at 50 yards.
One shot, one kill. Aim small, miss small. DO NOT shoot at the whole man. Shoot at a button on his shirt.
SKS has a fixed mag of ten rounds. After you kill ten men you will have time to reload.
Practice reloading the SKS with stripper clips. The first step is to examine all stripper clips to see that all are straight and that rounds will slide through them.
Safety ON.
Bolt open.
Stripper of ten rounds in clip slot.
Place your thumb as far back as possible on the top round.
Allow your thumb to ride along the stripper clip as you press rounds downward into the magazine.
With right hand KNUCKLES DOWN pull bolt back slightly and release it. It will feed a round into the chamber.
When you practice reloading with stripper clip DO NOT
chamber a round. Release the mag cover and allow rounds to fall out the bottom; then charge the mag with stripper clip of ten rounds, and so on.
KNUCKLES DOWN pull operating bolt back and release it. That will feed a round into the chamber. NOTA BENE if you keep knuckles up, and have a slam fire, the bolt handle will relocate your right thumb some inches toward your elbow. Ouch!
For safe carry if you will not shoot soon:
With your right hand (knuckles down) hold the bolt operating handle back; and press rounds down into the mag with your left thumb. Allow bolt to go forward an inch or so over the top round in the mag. Remove your left thumb. Allow bolt to close on an empty chamber.
