Finishing up my second cup. Major, have you got anything you haven't shot for a long time to trade? Planning on hitting the range today, but it is already in the 8os here.

Forgot, got a new lid, will work on the rest of the uniform this winter.  Not an exact copy of the 1881, but close enough since I  ain't getting into the uniform competition.

Coffee is up....

Seldom wear a lid these days of any kind.  Couple caps with US flag on them when I do.  Got a beautiful Black custom hat I haven?t worn in some time now... neeeds a new liner. But felt and sweatband  are 100% solid.  I have a palm I wear occasionally when really sunny outside. Once a year.

Just got back from dropping ''She who will be absent" at the airport.  She'll be spending 4 weeks back in Wisconsin for her mother's birthday and time with the rest of her family.

The cats and I are having a planning session tonight to see what mischief we can get into while she's gone.

Second cup of coffee down , house is noisy this AM. We have a young lady we have known all her life clean for us every couple of weeks. She has her brother's girlfriend with her and these two are a hoot! Hope it works out for them she seems like a really sweet girl. Today's goals are to strip and scrub, again! an old Colt I got last week, this poor little pony has been very neglected, so it's gonna need some more TLC. I ahte seeing good guns [or any kind of machine] just neglected...

From experiance hiding in plain sight will usually protect the stash. Remember though men are hunters and women are gathers.  If they find it they will gather it up :o

Just saying from experiance

I've handled but not shot one. Feels good in the hand. But I was in the market for something more concealable, looked at the LC9s some, but ended up getting a Smith &Wesson Shield 9. Fit my hand better than the small Ruger.

All the small framed pocket guns feel better in hand with a extended magazine. It takes a lot of practice to feel comfortable otherwise. Most fail to fires/cycling on the small frame are said to be due to limp wristing. Extended mag will help the grip more. Had a little Kel Tex,it improved handling 2 fold. JMHO


Del- I believe Pony Racer had a pith he wore to matches

I run the ARX rounds in my Shield .40. The light slugs are quite a bit softer in the recoil department. Try those out in the ultra compact carry guns.
