Facepalm moment
#1
So the other day I had a real facepalm moment.

Has anyone else had a "What am I thinking?" moment with their guns?

I have two of the same pump guns. One with an 18" bbl and a pistol gripped stock. The other is an 28" field barrel with a regular stock.

It was early in the morning and I thought "the block shoot is this weekend, I should put my other stock on my field pump".

I grabbed the big flat head screwdriver and headed to the safe. As soon as I got them out I thought "what the heck is wrong you nitwit, switch the darn barrels, not the stock". A minute later I was finished swapping barrels. It was a total brainfart. Still can't believe I was going to swap the stocks. Lol

Funny. But it would have been worse if somebody else pointed it out - I've has that happen before and thought WTF was I thinking.

Was cleaning a Glock yesterday and went to put it back together. I dropped the recoil spring assembly into the slide (no barrel) and sat there puzzled for a moment wondering why it was flopping around instead of sitting secure.

I once put an idiot scratch on my first 1911 years ago.Blush

Then sold it to my BIL who turned it into a idiot gouge.

I was disassembling my 1911 for cleaning and wasn't paying attention while I was turning the barrel bushing. As a result I sent the recoil spring plug flying to who-knows-where. Fortunately I had a backup so I finished my cleaning and put all back together.

Afterwards, I did a more thorough search for the plug and turned it up after a 15 minute hunt. I got the 1911 back out and being very careful when turning the barrel bushing proceeded to send the backup plug flying in a similar trajectory to the first.

Damn.

I gave up looking for the second one after a half hour. I found it 3 months later on the back of a shelf. I now use a backstop when cleaning my 1911.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

From this point forward you shall be known as Andrea and you will have to stay in the RV until you figure out how to properly assemble those three pieces before the walkers get you.
