I have no complaints about the handling of the Shield, other than it shoots an inch or so to the left for me. Might be the way I hold it.  Before I was carrying an LCP .380. It always functioned, but never any fun to shoot more than a couple of magazines in it. I put the heaviest recoil spring I could order in it, that tamed it some. Shot my Concealed Carry qualification with it after the spring, it was an improvement.

I carried G22 .40 or my 1911. Open and concealed. About a  year ago I started carrying a SP 101 .357. It is as close to ultra light compact for me. Suzanne carries her Sig P238 and or her P229 one is strictly compact the other small and light conceals easily. She uses extended mags for carry. I have a couple .25s I wish extended mags were available for.
 There?s a Walther and a Beretta here both 9mm but I don?t care for them. Step son likes the Walther.

Slim figured out this weekend why I  like wheel guns.  Arthur was raging and I had to cock the hammer on his 1911 to check the chamber.

Just got back from a chocolate run, had something weird happen, drove the wife's Equinox Yuppiemobile thing since I  was behind.  She thinks I should use the button on that expensive font thing instead of the switch knife like key thing.

Got brave coming out and tried to start it with the thing.  Worked after a couple tries, lights came on and it started up and drove off on it's own.

Then I found hers one aisle over behind a 3/4 pickup.  Dang they painted a lot of them grey.

Evening all.

Somewhat eventful day out here in Montana. I flew over to Big Timber and back, just barely ahead of afrog drowner.  I made it though.

Then I worked at the c-store on Rimrock (the one with the gas station) for the rest of the day.

I have to be up at 0430 tomorrow for my shift. After that, I may be able to take a quick trip to the toy store. It seems the one I go to has another little KelTec 32 in the case. I might be able to spare $180.

Morning Coffee is up...
fresh cantaloupe - eggs(from free ranging hens) - ham steak (from free ranging pigs)- and of course buttermilk biscuits. (From planted wheat)


Our home weather machine said it reached a hundred yesterday....49% humidity so it was sort of dry here.

 Up now watching the Hummingbirds when gets hot the disappear till evening.


TK I remember a couple little airports out there .  Had a Payphone( you do know what one of those are right?) and a sign telling you where to call for fuel. You?d have to wait for the truck to get there.
Locals always joked that they were the International Airports.

Good morning y'all. Lttl Rooster you reminded me of a smile we all had at Church a while back. One of the young ladies there started selling eggs as a school project and went and made labels for her egg cartons, She is a character and the labels read "Ashlyn's chicken butt nuggets" but when she made some more, she forgot the word chicken on the next batch of labels. I thought our Pastor was gonna bust a gut laughing!

Payphones are kind of like Sasquatches anymore. You tell someone you found one and they ask why you didn't take pictures.  ::)

Just go back from work. Time for a nap.

Sure. ;D

I saw one here in Billings a while back, but I don't remember where. Maybe at CVS.

ON THIS DATE IN 1776: Thomas Jefferson purchased a thermometer from a local merchant before signing the Declaration of Independence. According to his weather memorandum book, at 1 PM it was cloudy and 76 degrees.
Info provided by ABC 3340


76 degrees, coincidence? I think not ;D


If you chance visiting Monticello- you will find Jefferson was a gadget guy.

And you didn?t invite any of us? That is weird ;D

Coffee is up.... sweet tea about ready for those of you that would rather.

No rain yesterday. Just Alabama hot n humid- fires up grill about 4:30 on shady side of house. Use lump style charcoal. It lites and burns so much better.  Cooked chicken legs and a couple cheap rib steaks. Good thing . I just get them in the house and youngest step-son decided to come visit and ate with us. He lives near by and said he could smell them cooking at home.  We ate so much we never got the cobbler set out on the fire. May have to do that tonight.

Evening all.

Toy store trip seems to have been successful. The owner of the P32 changed their mind on price, wanted more than the gun was worth ($230), so I bought one brand new for $245. I pick it up Tuesday or Wednesday.

I finally get my weekend off from work, after 8 consecutive 8-9 hour shifts. Now I'm off until 3:30 Monday.
