A long war, vacation and stolen kills

Stole a few more kills recently, been having good luck on getting in the last hit on a few targets. It irks Sabre to no end. I can live with that, he needs a bit of poking.

The war is dragging on but I'm not worried. The Privateers seem unable or unwilling to really push the issue and we continue to beat them by the only measuring stick we care about. This past week three more corps dropped from their Alliance and I get the impression this trend will continue. Alot of students have left, but we've still got enough to crush the Privateers when needed. More importantly, we're getting back to our roots, electronic warfare.

I sort of pity the next fool to dec us after this war ends. We've grown a VERY hard core of capable PVP pilots. They may not have tons of SP yet, but the point is they've experience now, alot of it and that means far more than SP's will.

Was on vacation for a couple of weeks, helping my dad build a playhouse for my niece and nephew...though considering it's built to pretty much house standard, with normal height ceilings, real shingles and a porch with swing, it's a bit beyond most playhouses. Still, nailguns are fun, but murder on the hands if you have arthritis like me. I'll snap a few pics of it next time I go home.

Saturday I went to practice rifle for the upcoming rifle match. Did 20 rounds standing, 20 rapid fire sitting and 20 rapid fire prone. Used the rat gun for that (Bushmaster CMP competition rifle). Then switched and did 32 rounds of prone and standing with the M-1 Garand. More fun but not as nice. Course, it's not a competition rifle but it's fun.

Now I think I'm going to go eat some blue bell. Best flavor I could find was Mint Chocolate Chip, but I'll manage;)
