Much delayed update!

Well here's a few more. Hey - it's better than nothing!
From Chloë:
I overheard someone say "It all boils down to the wire"
Grasping at the last straw
From Gio:
Shoot fish in a barrel fist, ask questions later.
A few cracking mixed metaphors from me
You can't walk on eggshells without cracking a few eggs.
You can't put all your eggs in one basket without cracking a few eggs.
Don't count your chickens before you've cracked a few eggs.

And Louis pointed me towards a scene from the movie Boondock Saints, which contains the following:
People in glass houses sink ships.
Don't cross the road if you can't get out of the kitchen.

A related one that I heard in the '60s from one Arnold Herskowitz "If you want an omelet, you're going to have to eat some eggs."
