Eddystone Model of 1917, barrel dated November 1918. This rifle has a SAA (San Antonio Arsenal) mark on it. It was taken out of storage and refurbished there in preparation for WWII. This one sports an interesting light grey or sliver finish. It is a CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) rifle, but the finish on it suggests most likely it was a VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) post rifle that was returned, and reworked by the CMP.

Remington Model of 1903 manufactured April 1942.

Springfield M1 Garand. This is a rifle I rebuilt to be as close to parts correct for 1944.


On this day in music history: February 24, 1981 - “Working Class Dog”, the fifth album by Rick Springfield is released. Produced by Bill Drescher and Keith Olsen, it is recorded at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA from Late 1979 - January 1981. Springfield will work on the album sporadically over a two year period before landing a role on the daytime soap opera “General Hospital”. Working with producer and engineer Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Pat Benatar, Heart), much of the album is recorded when other artists booked to use the studio cancel, with the owner (also Springfield’s manager) allowing them to use the idle time to record. It becomes his long awaited breakthrough after years of recording with minimal success. The album spins off three hit singles including “Jessie’s Girl” (#1 Pop), and “I’ve Done Everything For You” (#8 Pop). “Jessie’s Girl” wins Springfield a Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Male in 1982. The albums’ cover artwork features a photo of Springfield’s bull terrier/great dane mix Ronnie (aka “Lethal Ron” Springthorpe -1979 - 1992) with a small photo of Rick pinned to the front of the shirt the dog is wearing. At first RCA is not happy that Springfield himself is not featured on the cover and wants him to change it. Eventually he win the argument and it is released as per his wishes. Ron also appears on the cover of the follow up album “Success Hasn’t Spoiled Me Yet” in 1982. “Working Class Dog” peaks at number seven on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 3x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

So… Lucifer said he needs love. He’s clearly having some kind of breakdown over what happened with God, Luci is vulnerable.

Now would really be the perfect time for Gabriel to FINALLY step in.

He loves Lucifer, he said so himself. Gabriel should come back and try to calm Lucifer down.

He is the only character I can think of with a strong enough bond with Luci to try and convince him to stop.
