With the eclipse came a swarm of eclipsophiles, of course, and it doesn't help that my area is starting school up again, so, on Sunday, we got hit hard by the usual Sunday crowd, the eclipse crowd, and the back-to-school shoppers. We had to stay eight hours after the store closed (an extra six hours tacked on to our shifts) to get caught up after the chaos. It wasn't fun.
What IS fun is that a friend of mine recently gave me his (airsoft) AKS-74U, which is basically a short AK-47. I just installed a new flash hider on it tonight (the old one was bent), and I'm probably going to gut it and replace the internals to make it operate more like my other rifle, but Soviet-style.
I'm also going to invest in some Russian camo, so that the two of us can roll as Ruskis every now and again.
