I work in a manufacturing facility. The spaces where the manufacturing is done is not air conditioned. As is normal this time of year, the temperature wrecks havoc on equipment and personnel. We have had several incidents resulting in bad product. Some to be blamed on equipment, some to be blamed on human error, some a little of both.

She did a wonderful job and no matter what I do with lighting to get a picture of it, it does not do it justice.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. For me? One on one training for some students Sunday. Tomorrow we are going to give this a workout:
I will let you know how it goes with this Model 4006! I personally think the .40 Cal S&W cartridge was a solution in search of a problem, but that's just me.
