Last two days have been busy but fun. Lots of nieces and nephews and the great-kids getting spoiled by the Missus and Uncle Kevin. Just having a cup of decaf [gotta be able to sleep tonight!].

Does anyone know how to perform an exorcism? Something has possessed the Deacon.  ::)

If we can find one I have a purr'fect receptacle for the demon.  Both cats have taken the safe way out and are just sleepin' the days away.  Need something to get them in the mode of "we can party".  Shouldn't surprise me though, they are just being themselves.  They aren't old enough to go to the casinos, and they don't take too kindly to car rides to get there anyway.

Kid, Now you have to find some Winchester Silver tips .32 ammo for it. That's the only decent self defence ammo made for the .32 autos.

Coffee and sweet tea are ready...

It is already hot n humid. Not going to do much today.
Going to finish my cup. Then go open the chicken house up.  Let them get out side.
The Guineas ( Tick eaters) are all ready squawking to get out.
Then I will water the sponge tree  :o

TK Have fun with the Kel Tex...

Guessers say 87 today and rain ?.  :-\   odds against 87 but rain is an even money bet.

I'll head to the LGS/FFL, the other day I scored a 1945 Ithaca 1911 as issued, carried and brought back by a veteran pilot.
Today the widow said she will bring me his DD214 to copy.

There was his  M3 shoulder Holster marked  Enger-Kress 1944  I'm tickled to own it.

Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

T'storm went thru last night lowering the humidity and temp.

'Tis 64 and overcast. "Showers early, then partly cloudy for the afternoon. High 78F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 40%."

I'll look around. See if they feed right.  Cabela's has some critical defense in, and are going to get in some Gold Dots. I'll try it all, I guess.

Today is nice and sunny.  Hopefully go out and burn some 9mm later on, but we'll see.

Slim, you want to be very careful using handloaded ammo for self defense, If you get the wrong DA he'll claim that over the counter ammo wasn't deadly enough so you loaded up your own killer ammo. Bet thing is to find out what your local Police use and use the same...Unless they use ball ammo like in NJ.

I carry Critical defense in my Ruger SR9c, Federal 115 gr JHP+P+ in my Browning HiPower, Federal Hydrashok 230 JHP +P in my Colt 1911 Government model and 357 Magnum 130 Grain JHP Hydra-Shok Federal Premium Personal Defense Low Recoil for my S&W Model 28-2 and 38 Special 129 Grain +P Hydra-Shok JHP Federal Vital-Shot in my S&W J frames. These are the best performing ammo in my pistols as tested, They are accurate enough for me to take a head shot at 25 yards and a center mass shot at 50 yards. Your guns may like a different brand/type of ammo, I always recommend trying out as many different brands as your budget will allow.
