    I spent the day on the lake fishing with my grandkids (the schools are closed). It's a good thing i'm stocked up on food cause i could never feed my family on what i can catch
    We were topped up by store open at 7am, and the bread, tp, eggs, and sanitizers etc were gone by 4pm. It's actually gotten worse the last few days rather than tapering off as I expected. People were decidedly in worse mood, saw some parents calming scared to tears kids, dunno how it's all gonna play out. Supposedly the closed schools, restaurants, bars, etc will have the food they normally sold be redirected to grocer's. Our trucks are running 12 hours behind last I heard.

    One of my sons is a manger for Trader Joes. He said they've had a huge jump in sales but are able to keep supplied and so far no brawls over TP , when most of your customers are old hippies who wipe their butts with dry leaves and herbs , no fights over TP

    California Orders Lockdown for State’s 40 Million Residents
    U.S. coronavirus cases surpass 14,000; China reports no new domestic virus infections

    California ordered its 40 million residents to stay at home except for essential activities beginning Thursday night in the largest such lockdown in the U.S., as the nation’s total coronavirus cases rose to more than 14,000 and an intensifying outbreak in Europe pushed State Department officials to advise citizens not to travel abroad.

    In a letter to President Trump, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said he estimated 56% of the state’s population, or 25.5 million people, would be infected over an eight-week period.

    Mr. Newsom sent the letter—asking that a naval hospital ship be deployed to Los Angeles to increase health-care capacity—before the lockdown order. In calling for people to stay home, Mr. Newsom asked the state’s residents to “bend the curve together.” Nearly half of residents in America’s most populous state had already been given stay-at-home orders from local cities and counties, including Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.

    With every thing shutdown isn't everyone doing that? Who decides what essential activities are? Are they going to arrest you for non compliance? (if they do just tell them your looking for cars to steal)

    On the good news side CHINA HAS STOPPED THE VIRUS, there are no new cases! WOO HOO WUHAN!!!

    I have both 9 mm. and .45. You'll love it. Accurate, reliable, lightweight, and inexpensive all the way.

    The local range here, Ben Avery, is going to close for 5 days and will reopen.This is prime time for big shooting matches here and while some are being rescheduled i think most will go on.

    On a busy weekend, there are 60+ shooters on the line at the public range all day ( 7am - 5pm ), there's so much gunsmoke and lead in the air no virus could survive

    Starting to taper off at work from the madness the last week, just need some time to catch up on deliveries. Went past earlier today and it looked like a normal tues from parking lot volume.

    I've been meaning to call the outdoor range I shoot at over in Indiana. I would think they would still be open but who knows. I'm getting cabin fever and a surefire cure is burning powder & tossing lead.

    Would lighting some talcum powder and throwing some lead fishing weights around help?.....

    That helps my cabin fever a lot.

    INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Eric J. Holcomb delivered a statewide address Monday to order that Hoosiers remain in their homes except when they are at work or for permitted activities, such as taking care of others, obtaining necessary supplies, and for health and safety.
    The Stay-At-Home Order takes effect Tuesday, March 24 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
    The order ends on Monday, April 6, at 11:59 p.m. ET, but could be extended if the outbreak warrants it.

    It's funny, I spend most of my time here alone



    Now that I'm supposed to stay put I don't want to

    Very cool. Flying in an open cockpit airplane has been on my bucket list for some time.
