Major have you fired your newest aquistion- the 1911?


No Sir , I have not yet had the opportunity.... 9-4:30ing has me cowed , and downpours when I get to the Home 20 have stymied me...
I have yet to even field strip ( it is NIB) and detail clean & lube , as is my SOP ?

However, I plan a PTO day Friday

And that is the reason I gave up TV years ago, didn't take much watching to figure out it was all bullshit.

I decided years ago I have no reason to inflict bs on myself.

We at least realize ,most that stuff is fake, too much of the rest of the world don't.

Evening all.

Weather was sunny and hot. I didn't fly this morning because I was too tired from not being able to sleep.

In other news, I'm putting in my two weeks notice at this place I'm working right now. They've pushed too many of my buttons for a place only offering $10.25 with no benefits for full time work.  Working me twelve days straight but with the hours spread so I don't get any over time, except for one day where I worked 11.5 hours but only got 3 hours of OT.  Then I got chewed out for working so long because I was supposed to clock out and not get overtime, but nobody told me that. Then yesterday the boss came in three separate times to tell me specifically that the paperwork keeps coming up wrong, when I very rarely do the paperwork. An when I do, it usually comes up just as accurate as the managers' (+/-20?). None of the other employees got that visit.

I nearly walked out yesterday, but I decided to be professional and give two weeks.  I have an interview at Scheels tomorrow, and I'm waiting to hear back from Cabela's, so I have options.

I'll put the soap box away now.

Ever wonder why the help at C stores is often not the best.  Low wages and crappy working conditions.

Coffee is up-


TK six or seven years ago TownPump told me I didn?t have enough experiance to work the overnight shift. I really didn?t want to work there anyways.


M2 I have the same model and really abuse it - no complaints about it. I have changed the grips and saved the factory ones and a set of mother of Pearl grips for it.  The factory holster works pretty good also. I use several type holsters though. Mostly a pancake style.

Hadn't planned to carry , I have several 1911's  & A1's

I was looking at maybe getting a Colt 1991 ...(really wanted a Colt 2011 re-issue WW1 redue but they were limited to 1500 guns and now north of 2 grand)




This other guy happens in to my friendly LGS on Friday with the NIB Springfield Armory Mil-spec ( NIB w/ 2 mags, belt carry & mag carry Kydex ) to consign
he asking $550 he's  motivated and say's he take 500 , he wants to get a Glock 17 Gen. 4

Well now I just happen to have Glock 17 Gen. ( I won as door prize ) so the trade is cast ! 
He got what he wanted...and I scored BIG TIME .... I had nothing in the Glock and it was gathering dust.

I'm a 1911 fan ....Glock was OK, but I only shot it once or twice and it was stuck in the back of the safe, To large to CCW without printing

Same set up as mine. Never got use to mag carrier and opted for another style.

Yeah I had bought the pimp grips for Wild Bunch- heck I bought the gun for that. I since found a nice set of double diamond grips that are in it now. I do carry it. I have had spent a lot of time at the range with it. It shoots better than I do, not ammo finicky only hiccups have been my fault.
I do practice with a dummy round in a mag. To build clearing skills. To get my guard card they did this too. That and one handed mag change with hand behind your back.

Good morning folks. Working on a pot of fresh ground coffee, gonna have lunch with TLOTH and knock out some indoor errands today. Supposed to hit 90+ so indoor AC sounds good! TK, I understand, retired now and took a part time job at Rural King just to get out of the house. They kept jerking me around on requested days off, so my wife was like, just quit. Smart lady, no taste in men, but she's a sweetie!

Because they don't call old pharts back who apply.

Young managers are afraid they'll be shown up.  Young assistant manager of one told me that and he has no say in who the manager hires.

Thanks for the coffee.

Had some pretty powerful storms all around the home 20 last night. According to radar the nearest lightning strike was 1.5 miles, the rain never touch us but localized flooding was reported.

Here is the Launch & return of this mornings Space X  .

Note: the small white dot about center in the second photo of the return... that is the craft itself on a return to base touchdown....
