a day of malfs

Finally got to take the Saiga-12 to the range, and -- alas. The gun worked just fine. But literally every single magazine I had malfunctioned. The 5-rounders failed to lock in, so I'd fire one round and the cycling action would send the mag flying. The 10-rounders would lock in, but they failed to feed after the first round.

This was deeply annoying.

Then I got in my car and discovered that the dashboard instruments -- digital display, natch -- were not displaying. The GPS worked; the warning lights came on fine. But the speedometer, odometer, gas gauge? Nothin'.

It's really unnerving to drive home with no speedometer.

Of course, I go to work tomorrow, and of course that trip involves highway travel, and of course when I get back I will be going immediately up to Ma's house in Maryland, which is a thirteen-hour highway trip. I think I'm going to borrow a friend's car and see if I can get the dealership to take a look at it while I'm gone...
