Lets see, sleeping, feeding Mrs Marvel and self massive quantities of protein and stir fry, and trying to
put a dent in the piles of dirty dishes, laundry and clutter ....  It's good to have Mrs Marvel back home!

Thanks for the thoughts, options and opinions, gents!
bearing in mind my experience, predeliction and peculair fondness for the 1911 and P35 controls, how do the recommend
plastic 9mm's compare? 50 some odd years of muscle memory don't ( doesn't?) retrain very quickly. Which is another
plus for the j-frame....

No range report on the Shield yet-several bouts of thunderstorms today, power out for most of the afternoon.

Perfessor Super Marvel, the S&W Shield comes either with or without a manual safety (required for some states). Mine has none, just the "trigger safety", and a somewhat long trigger pull. S&W uses a sort of hinged trigger, instead of the Glock style scissor trigger most of the other striker fired guns have. The S&W and Rugers that have a manual safety, have one that operates like a 1911, although it's somewhat smaller. Frame mounted, and down is off. The "Backwards" safeties are the ones on DA/SA autos, mounted on the slide, which are "up is off", like the Smith 39/59 series, Ruger P-series, Beretta M-9, etc.

Supposedly the shindig across the pond yesterday cost somebody $45,000,000. Mostly for security. The Diana wedding cost $110,000,000. That's a lot of tea.
Rain all week, next Saturday we do our WB match. The range is going to be a mud hole I'm afraid. As long as it's not raining. Good coffee drinking weather.

Loaded some Lebel for my 93 Berthier with lead cast by my friend Dakoda Ike & Trailboss ....

When Noah runs aground, I'll go print some on paper, meanwhile I'm stuck in the ark with the rest of the beasties....
though I did carve some American Holly grips on my Derringer.

Did get the BBQ @ Meat & Fire.... it was OK, but I think I like my regular joint better, which is further and I shyed away from driving the  distance in the wet .  Undecided

Prof, I will put in a vote for a scandium J frame lightweight revolver. That's my edc. It only holds 5 .38s but mine is cut for moonclips so it's a relatively fast reload.

I agree, I have one and it goes everywhere with me. I did change out the tiny rubber grips it came with for these Boot grips, gives me a much better hold on the gum.

After a sunny afternoon, another toad strangler blew through, while we were in church. Some construction behind the gym seems to have interfered with the drainage, we got about an inch of water in side one corner of the gym and in the storage room. Took 7 of us about 45 minutes to get most of the water swept/mopped/squeegeed out the back door.

Here's my j frame, before and after a Marine Red cerakote job. It needs another paint job nowdays. I tried the pretty rosewood and uncle Mike's rubber bootgrips but they were uncomfortable so I tried these weird ergo grips. They do a good job of controlling the recoil.

 Made the coffee, watched the grandson get on the bus, wife is still sleeping, Today shows on, am watching the terrible mess in Hawaii and the evil done in Santa Fe. I think that while the people on this planet are going crazy, the planet is going crazy too.

Stay safe Cas City.

Home from work now- charging a 02 bottle so i can get out and do chores. Used more last night than normal.

Slim thanks for the coffee.


For those of you on the Ark waiting for landfall. Try loading glue stick and primer ammo. You can shoot it in the house. You might wait till the Mrs. is out of the house though. They wont cycle a slide but still fun to shoot.  You can use the glue stick slugs over and over depending on what your target surface is. I used a towel draped over a cardboard box.



Got to pick up feed and gas for mower.

Not been on here in a while.  I just ready Prof M's post on the Justice League.  Funny, I didn't hear anything about that in the news (sarcasm intended). 
As for CCW with 1911 type controls, I have two.  Though I don't CC them...they are in the vehicle (re-evaluating this practice as your story, and recent events close to home, Santa Fe HS shooting, have prompted.)  Both guns have thumb safeties, but no grip safety.  I, or rather my favorite wife, owns a Sig P238.  It is an awesome little gun.  Though some may frown on the 380 ACP, the gun is very light, easily concealed and very  easily managed while shooting.  Miss Red can shot it with one hand.  I keep a Taurus PT111 in the Jeep.  I've added a set of Tru-Glo sights to it which cost 1/2 again as much as the gun and two mags cost me, but they are great in low light.  The PT111 isn't the most accurate gun, but I've not had any reliability issues with it. 

The Sig runs in the $600 range, and comes with night sights.  They also make a similar, but only slightly larger version, 938, in 9mm in the same price range.  The Taurus was $250, plus another $120 for the sights I added.  I chose the Taurus for the price range....Heaven forbid it is stolen, but I won't be out of a lot of money (of course, snub-nosed 38's are available in the same price range, too!).

Stay calm and carry on....

Good Morning to y'all. Been kinda rainy or overcast, with bits of Sun peeking out on occasion. Been up into the 90's, which means we are running the genny during the day now, so the wife can sleep. Her cancer scare turned out ok. They had found microcalcifications, which are usually a precursor to breast cancer. She got the biopsy, and they proved to be nothing, and were removed. However, while they were doing that, they also found a 2mm cancer, but it isn't going anywhere or amount to anything.

But, prior to the biopsy, we had been sitting in the garden, and she said she wasn't feeling good. Next thing I know, she pitches forward and face plants on the ground. I called 911 (Which is a real joke here), and she was unresponsive off and on for about half an hour while we waited for the ambulance. They finally showed up, and took her to the local hospital... which is usually a death sentence. They discovered she had a few strings of pvcs, which lead to her dropping out., She's doing better now, but has to wear a heart monitor for 30 days to see what is going on. Hopefully they can control it with meds, and not have to put in a pacemaker. I tell you, that scared the crap out of me.

My best wishes go out to your wives, I hope they are doing fine. Take this opportunity to let them know you love them, because there is no telling what tomorrow will bring.

I take my wife in tomorrow, to have a vile duct removed.  Should be home late tomorrow evening/afternoon. This was postponed because of my wellness or lack of.

Sounds like a bunch of us and our better-halves need some prayers.

Good Troy, I don't frown on .380 ACP. Well placed shots of .22 LR will do the job.
