I just got back from the midwest.
I travelled with my son and his wife to the Kansas City, MO area, to visit my Grandson & family. More succinctly, to Blue Springs. I had a couple
gunsmithing jobs to be done, so I enlisted the best gunsmith I know (my grandson) to do them.
Had a great time, and had to make my necessary visit to Culver's (best burgers anywhere..IMO), which I consider a "must do", each time I visit.
Kansas City is famous for BBQ, so we try a different place each time we visit.. This time we tried a place called JACK STACKS..or something like that.
First off..I am not a big BBQ fan, although my son is. We tried this place, and although it was a very nice place , with polite and courteous employees... the product fell short for each of us. (5 adults, plus 5 year old great grandson).
Not a condemnation of the place, but just not OUR kind of BBQ..others may love it!
Visited a commercial range, a first time for me, since I have many venues where I can shoot for free...including my own recreational acres.
My grandson took his 5 yr old son into the booth to shoot (with hands on guidance) his Sig .22 LR.
Always great to visit my grandson..good share of time to talk guns.. He makes his living testing, designing and building gins and ammo, but since
that is for NATO and top secret..we cannot talk his work, and I respect security clearances , so I avoid asking.
However, we do have much conversation at a civilian guns & ammo level.
Although I have never been a club goer, I still enjoyed seeing my Grandson's band play at a local (KC) cowboy club complete with a "bucking bull" (?)
An enjoyable long weekend, along with getting some needed gunsmithing done.
