    1. I'm going to design and build a storage "vault" for my Dodge Magnum. The samples posted recently on TS.com have inspired me.

    2. I'm going to build a shotgun, probably a Remington 1100. I have a Speer's release trigger assembly and a couple of extra barrels. I think I have a lead on a receiver. This will include refinishing stock parts and trying my hand at bluing.

    My resolution for 2012 is the same as for 2011 - to shoot fifty straight.

    Set out trampolines under the windows of tall buildings, to catch my fellow conservatives after Romney loses in November.

    To stock up on can goods and ammo for when the country goes bankrupt and can't pay welfare to all of the Obummer supporters.

    To move those trampolines, because Romney is not going to be the only loss for the Republicans, IMO.

    To get back into registered shooting starting in April or May. This time I mean it. I would also like to make my own stock duplicator.

    Buy a book on the anatomy & physiology of the eyes and how they work - and study how to best use my vision for shooting. Then after that doesn't work, hijack a truckload of Prozac.

    A few years ago I bought a eye tape similar to the one Decot sells. I think if used consistantly it will improve your ability to acquire the target.

    I'm determined to get that last 1/2 yardpunch to the 27, as well as win at least 1 or 2 HOA pins.

    1) To shoot 100 straight in skeet.

    2) To find another "New World" where we can establish a new America.

    (One is just as likely to happen as the other.....)

    Write down serial numbers, photograph, and catalog my firarms. I don't own that many, so that's not a hard project. Oh, and repaint the home's front metal railing and finish reading some books I've either purchased in paper or downloaded to my Nook.

    Happy 2012 to One and to All...
