Thanks for the kind words Gents. I'm very proud of my Grandson. He will be a good Marine. He gets my 1911 when I can't shoot anymore.

Johnny I could be your grandson- if’n you got any others you are heirlooming out.


Okay movie buffs. There is a scene in dancing with wolves. Where Dunbar reports to the commander at Ft Hayes. Wht is the significance of him saying I just pissed my pants......... then went on to suicide?

Got ambitious today, brother works 2nd shift and sleeps days and is hard to catch up with, wanted to go visit yesterday but he was at the farm.  Anyway, I wasn't really worried but things got nasty about 1/2 mile north at the City County Building, some window breaking around, arson and looting, tear gas and all.   Anyway I met him at his house when he got home and retrieved me six shooter.  See him and the kids decided they day after I had surgery that since no one would be in our house to move my modest collection to his house to his spare vault.  Anyway it's back in my dresser drawer when it belongs, long ago decided if I can't fix it with 6 it probably ain't gonna get fixed. Need to get the shop cleaned because I'm down to 24 rounds, may go out and see if I can find a box of 32 mag this week, ain't planning on needing it, but all the net gurus say no handloads, except one old phart I know who most know by name, some retired sheriff from SW Texas who says he is not aware of anyone being in trouble over handloads.   But he also says there is nothing wrong with carrying a single action if you are good wit it.  I think Slim will tell you I ain't half bad. ;)

Our Church re-opened today for the first time since the lockdown. Sensible precautionary measures were taken. We felt safe and comfortable at today's service.

My oldest Grandson is at Quantico, West Virginia for Marine Officer's Candidate School. We were going to drive up in July for the graduation ceremony but it has been cancelled in lieu of a private ceremony just for the graduates. I was really looking forward to visiting the base at Quantico. Things have changed quite a bit since I took boot camp at Fort Leonard, Missouri in 1959.
My dad was at Fort Leonard Wood in the late '50's for boot camp, also.

Gun Writer Sheriff Jim Wilson says it's never been used, it's just a myth among the tactical people.   I searched it one time and came up with nothing.

I've heard the loading of magazines with Ball Ammo vs Hollow points version.... seems Lawyers would use Hollow points as more lethal pre-disposed intent or the use of  Ball ammo less so.
Then there is the enterprising fellow that loads the Mag. with a Ball round followed by Hollow Points as murderous intent.  :-\

I suppose, if you use a  heavy caliber vs a lighter caliber a  lawyer would argue predisposed mayhem  ::)
or you fired multiple rounds  :o

" ......


Okay movie buffs. There is a scene in dancing with wolves. Where Dunbar reports to the commander at Ft Hayes. Wht is the significance of him saying I just pissed my pants......... then went on to suicide?

I seem to had read (IMDB) the actor  Maury Calkin (sic) Chaykin died some years later of kidney failure , would that be your reference ?

I'm wrong   ::)

Edit :  I went and looked it up   
"Maury Chaykin died in Toronto on July 27, 2010, his 61st birthday, from complications of a heart valve infection."

I never read the book , just saw the film , perhaps the book sheds light  :-\

Well I don't know about you being my grandson but you might be young enough to be my son.
