Back from leave + updates on gun projects

I have returned from leave and am now back at Pendleton and await my airline tickets to Hawaii!  When I arrived at FMTB, they were surprised that I came back because apparently noone knew I was supposed to return, but that was what I was told when I left two weeks ago.  I almost got counted as a UA for some reason even though I remember before I left two weeks ago I talked with two people at personnel department that I was going on leave and returning to FMTB to await my tickets and they literally told me to GTFO and go on leave.  But everything is sorted out and now I‘m in some kind of disgusting roach-motel of a barracks that‘s even more nastier than the FMTB barracks.  I can tell there's no regular inspection of the living spaces here, but it's not so bad once you get used to it.

A list of projects that I hoped to get done while on leave, but didn’t:

-Romanian AK47 trainer rifle in .22 LR
-East German AK47 trainer pistol in .22 LR
-Yugoslav M76 8mm on a stamped PSL receiver
-VMac-10 9mm from square tubing
-Marlin Camp-Frankenstein 9mm carbine
-Rhineland Mauser K98 .45 ACP carbine
-Ghetto Home-made Mauser Broomhandle Lower Receiver
-SharpShooter4090's MG47ES
-Safari Arms .45 ACP carbine

I did take a few pictures and write down measurements and dimensions of some of this stuff in my notebook so at least I can brainstorm ideas and post small updates periodically.
