Unplanned Trip to Vance’s

Oh, I forgot one other thing that I did a couple days ago. There has been an ammo shortage pretty much since the point when COVID became a thing, and it has gotten worse as people have been watching the riots and craziness in various cities across the nation. ๐Ÿ˜ So when I was window shopping on Vance’s site and saw that Blazer Brass 115g 9mm was in stock, I went for a ride to see if I could snag a couple boxes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I figured I would get there and there’d be maybe a case or two that was put out on the shelves, already partially picked through, but nope… they had half-a-skid of the stuff. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Granted, at $22.99/box it was more than it normally would have been, but beggars can’t be choosers at the moment. (There are GunTubers that are still travelling hours for theirs. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ) I ended up talking “gun stuff” to a fella behind the counter, getting some education from ex-law enforcement, for about 15 minutes… and he mentioned that even they were surprised when they saw how much showed up in that one delivery.

But I feel pretty good with the amount that I’ve got now. Especially given everything that I just described about my shoulder’s reaction to a little bit of landscaping, it’s obvious that I do need to get out to a range to practice when I’m back to normal. Just so I know how my shoulder and neck will react to shooting, and to make sure that I can still be safe and capable if needed. ๐Ÿ˜Ž But not this weekend, that’s for damn sure. ๐Ÿ˜… But after the recent trip to Vance’s, I’ve now got plenty of target/extra ammo now (for whenever I end up going) to go along with the two mags’ worth of home defense rounds it’s normally loaded with. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Cassi is starting to become a fan of South Korean pop music, of all things… heh… and every now and then she’ll suggest a song or video that she thinks I should check out, to see if she can get me to share in some of her excitement. ๐Ÿ˜ Normally it’s something okay but ultimately forgettable – but with this video and song, she found a winner. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I can’t understand a damn word of what they’re saying… but thanks to the story of this video, and the 90s pop-rock sound, I love it.

I was confused during the first part of this video, so I’ll give you a hint as to what I think’s going on… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคจ He’s attending the funeral of a girl that he had gotten involved with about a week prior to her passing, and at some point during that time she had gotten him a watch. At the funeral, the watch causes him to jump back in time to a point right before they originally met. See what you think…

This band… and they are a band, unlike a lot of K-Pop groups… they cover nearly every genre that you can think of throughout their discography. Their lead singer has a voice that lets him handle anything he’d want to sing, from ballads, to pop songs, to actual rock/metal tunes. FTIsland doesn’t have a cult following since they don’t stick to a single genre, but I can respect a group much more when they play what they want to play, and because they can play any instruments in the first place. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป

It’s nice to find new music that gives you the feels ๐Ÿ˜… even if it’s in a language you can’t understand. I like these guys, and I’ve added some of their tracks to my Spotify playlist, but it’s also encouraging me to try and find some new music like this in my native language. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Sure, I’ve got a couple thousand songs on my car’s USB drive, but there’s just something about experiencing new music…
