on three things:
First, the foot is improving. Swelling's down, but I still don't want to walk much, or stand on it much, and the fever feels about gone(I think my thermometer's screwed, so can't tell for sure). Happily, it appears the antibiotics aren't screwing with me.
The report on the Magholder will take longer, because haven't been out much to wear it.
Quite a while back I tried coating a knife with header paint to see how it'd hold up; I set it in the dining area, and it got covered up, so hasn't been used much(almost at all). It's now sitting by the cutting board for actual use.
Confession time: it looked so nice I took a pistol that had a worn finish and refinished it with the same paint. Figured I'd let it cure, bake it, then shoot and carry it to see how it holds up. Shortly after that, the current ammo/components crisis started, so it hasn't been fired as much as had planned. Or carried as much(different story). So today I'm going to start carrying it as much as I can, at least around the house, and start seeing how this finish holds up.
