Ran some rounds through the CZ 75 and Sig P365.  Around the 1,200 round mark on the P365 and still no issues.  Been carrying it more and more.  The CZ 75 is easily my favorite handgun to shoot.  It fits my hand like perfection.  Natural draw and point for me and quick follow up shots due to weight of all steel frame.  My Glock 19 may be going bye bye soon for another CZ.  Jus Sayin.

Quote from: streamereater_101691 on May 16, 2019, 20:04:52 pmgood news since they are forecasting possible record highs this coming week

Actually not so much good news.

I'm not a water flow expert or fisheries biologist but this is what I heard at the December SRTU meeting. According to DGIF the one turbine at 700cfs all day long is not chilling the water the way two turbines at 1400 for a shorter period was. It seems the 700 cfs flow has more of a chance to warm as it goes downstream.

With that in mind we are in talks with COE about running the one turbine and the sluice gate so the flow gets up to 1400cfs - this would clear the inflows to Philpott twice as fast in a controlled manner which was main purpose of the dam in the first place, ie flood control. Unfortunately that mission has morphed over into revenue making with every gallon of water that does not go through the turbine viewed as revenue lost.

I understand everything you just pointed out Al. 700cfs is much better than 55cfs. This week, flow will hit the lower river at the warmest part of the day.
