"So... what's with the Amazon links and such shenanigans?"
Astute readers, and that means everyone who spends time here, will have noticed the abundance of Amazon.com links in the written blatherings of Carteach recently.
What is up with that, you may ask...... Currently Carteach is more like 'Nobodyteach', and is enjoying a semi-retirement-type unemployed situation. I say 'semi' as I fully expect something will come along that attracts my passion, and then it will be full bore again. Till that happens, I have more time for other enjoyments, including everything shooty I can manage. But.... why the Amazon.com links? Two reasons: (1) I shop there myself, and find it the easiest way to help people find the stuff I am writing about, and (2) they kick a few percent of the sales back into my account, letting me buy some toys my otherwise brokeitude would not allow. That extra bit of income, small as it is, is most welcome and greatly appreciated. For those gentle readers who chose to make purchases through the links here, my thanks go out to you. You've done me a solid, and I appreciate it.
Sadly, Amazon.com does not sell ammo, bourbon, or cigars..... sigh. They do sell coffee, and food, and both have been carried to my door by the unflagging UPS driver. That's pretty handy, that is.
