I got this last week.

If you're a Youjo Senki fan, you'll recognize it as the weapon Mary uses / and the rest of the United States.  I won't talk about why that's absolute blasphemy and wrong.

If you're more history minded you'll know it is in fact an M1 Garand - a Springfield model.  This one was produced in the Spring of 1942, with a barrel date from 1944.  All but the trigger group are Springfield parts.  I won a lottery in this gambit, $650 for it, turns out it's well over $2,000 in value.

Just got a box of light bulbs.  Exciting, right?  Just part of my ongoing quest to find decent LED bulbs now that my state has basically outlawed the old incandescent and halogen bulbs.  This batch is on the recommendation of a co-worker on a similar quest.  At $20 for a six-pack I was kind of expecting these to make me coffee in the morning but they're apparently just light bulbs.  That said, these do dim well, fit in the space of a regular "A19" bulb, don't noticeably flicker*, and even at just 14 watts they're as bright as the old kind.  I just got these so I still have to see how long they last of course.  I've yet to find any LEDs that last as long as a good incandescent, never mind some of the claims of 20 years or more.

*except a little bit at extreme dimming levels where it is actually tolerable.. kind of like flickering candlelight.

Weather has been hitting triple digits already and I've been keeping hydrated while I run, I found this amazing bottle called Bottled Joy. I got the half gallon one. Eco-friendly, and the daily water intake markers are a nice reminder to stay hydrated throughout the day. It's very sturdy and the wristband is strong. Satisfied with the product! 

 

Edit: They're back on Amazon for a good price right now.
