I hate this time of year...

It's all of 32 degrees out at the moment, and I'm nice and warm in a coffee house (it's the radiating hatred from the hippies at the gun stickers on my EeePC, I swear) full of delicious coffee and chicken and wild rice soup.  Unfortunately I have to go back outside in a half hour and go to my last class for the day. (Granted, can you really call choir a class?)

Sadly, I know that it's only going to get colder for the next few months, and snow will only be pretty for about a half hour before I remember that it makes lots of my usual pastimes nearly, if not entirely, impossible.  I need to get rich and get a winter home in Arizona...

Browning 1911-22

Browning's apparently coming out with a .22lr chambered 1911 clone.  Cool.

Unfortunately (at least in my mind) is that they've decided to follow the Sig Mosquito and build it to be about 80% of the size of the centerfire equivalent.  Le'sigh, as the French would say.  I don't quite understand the reasoning for building scaled down .22lr clones unless you're going for the novelty approach like the old half-scale Tippman Browning Machine Guns.  Those were cute.
