Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

Slim how many bales a year do you go thru?
We use about 50 here. It?s hard to find good straw here we would use a bit of that too. We use shavings instead.
350-400 for 3 horses.

'Tis 72 and sunny. "Humid. Partly cloudy. Isolated showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the upper 80s. East wind 5 to 10 mph."

Sheesh, hot and humid today, welcome to Southern Illinois in July. Worked on freeing up some old screws on a Model 12 Winchester this morning, they are soaking in Kroil right now. Also, got some new grips far a 1911 from Altamont, dressed up a Super .38 real nice.

Fancy name for brown noser. ::)
Gotta climb the ladder somehow.  ;D

Afternoon all.

Another 5-1 today.  Nothing of note happened. It's still cloudy and threatening to rain/thunder, but that's an everyday occurrence here.

I would really be happy with a nap, but I have to take the lady to the Big R for some boots. Whole I'm there, I'll look and see if they have any decent holsters for my P32.

That's some nice grips, Deacon.


TK, good luck finding a holster for your .32. I've never really found one I like for my LCP. I suspect they would use the same holster, since the LCP and P380 Kel Tec are almost clones. Every one I've tried seems to double the thickness of the little gun. Could just pocket carry it, but I don't like the idea of a "no safety" pistol rattling around in my pocket. Don't want to carry a pistol with an empty chamber, since an unloaded pistol is just a club, and an 8oz club isn't worth much.

Kid, check out these holsters, they're very well made and reasonably priced.

TK, they make a holster/guard that is just Kydex molded to cover the triggerguard. They have a cord that slips around your belt, so when you draw the gun, it pulls the clip free. Look on fleabay, there are severral on there for $10-$15.

TK I used a pocket clip from KelTex and a cheap Uncle Mikes for mine. It kept it secure in my front pocket. However the link from the Major is a good source.

Howdy all!
Major the Super is a custom build, Caspian frame, ATI slide, Sig ramped barrel, the internals are either Wilson or Colt. I built it last year, did most of the work myself and had a local gunsmith do the trigger for safety. Nice shooter with one of the finest triggers I have ever gotten on a 1911.

Evening all.

Just got back from work. Nothing noteworthy happened today.

I like the desantis pocket holsters. I'm also looking at a Vedder holster for iwb carry. They're custom molded kydex, and pretty thin.

Kid, I have one of the Crossbreed supertuck for my Ruger SR9c and I love it, very comfortable even for a fat guy like me, something to look into if you want an IWB holster.

Living in a tropical climate light clothing is a must. Dockers Pants and an Oxford sport shirt is my daily wear.
I have found right pocket carry to be the most comfortable, easiest access and less printable carry for me.
I don't care for the IWB poke for all day carry.

Left is my Vest Pocket Gelesi , center the Beretta 950BS and the S&W model 36 or alternate Mod. 60. all are easily hidden in the rather deeper pocket of  Dockers style Pants. All are Desantis pocket holsters,

Morning coffee is brewed up-

Weather is typical, hot n humid chance of more hot to miserable interrupted occasionally,   by rain showers or a pop up t storms. All else normal


The prementioned Uncle Mike?s holster was comparable to the one Major2 has showed you.

Have a bright sunny day here, not what the weather liars called for, Temps are 99degrees, 92 in the shade, high humidity. Good day to stay inside cleaning guns or reading the gun forums on the computer.

Coffee is up

Had a very large Pecan branch break half off.  It now blocks the drive near the barn. Will see if I can get step son here to help get it at least off the driveway.  This happened between like 4 and 6 pm. We both had driven under it several times yesterday.  This branch is 12 inches at trunk and 25 foot long. Typical old growth Pecan.
