Hated

I know what its like to be hated, I'm gay, a vet, and a gun owner. Right now I feel more hated because of my rights. I'm attacked in the news and by my "elected officials", all for doing what is legal, and a right. Who are these bigots, and hate mongers? Those that think I am evil for the actions of another, that blame the innocent, and endanger law abiding with their actions. I am done with being spat on, as a vet I've dealt with it, as a gay individual as well, and now as a citizen with a right. They make me an enemy, but they should remember this well. Demons run, when a good man goes to War. War it shall be if they so choose.

NRA stop wasting my donation.

This year I have received at least 2 items in the mail from you, and recently the amount of crap you have tried to sell me for other people has gotten......excessive. Now that you are mailing me on the behalf of an health insurance company selling me a "cancer" treatment insurance, that is one step to far. What in hell does that have to do with your purpose? Where in the charter and mission statement does it say sling shit for crappy shit salesmen? The coin, then the DVD(which was pure suckage in its whole approach of selling me it), the extra insurance, the knife, and now the "cancer treatment insurance"; where is the money going here?

Twit(ter)

The amount of twits on Twitter, why did I join? Oh right so no twit could steal my name on there, and to follow the few on there that aren't raging morons.

Jobs suck sometimes.

Signs its time to find new employ, I am writing this much after the fact. My former boss, after accusing me of stealing a few months ago, and this is before I find out he had already caught the thief once before stealing, said thief steals again and gets fired. This I later find out after my general manager(the second one since I started)tells me, then my boss tells me this too... This after numerous requests for a simple and slight change of schedule comes the fun part, the general manager leaves, second one I've seen come and go, and makes me longest running manager there...., the boss moves one of his employees from another store to mine, at a higher position and pay. Then I find out the real reason why he was moved, he was a Driver at the other store and had gotten a DUI, for this he was promoted above me and at higher pay. Thus I am now saying screw that shit, and signed up for college, its time to use my GI bill. Oddly I will get more money going to school then working.

college...

I just signed up for college, I'm going to a local community college. As such I am finally using my GI bill....which is a another story for later. Hopefully I will get my core classes taken care of, and then figure out what area to get my degree in, I know its odd but I'm kinda thinking as an ultimate goal of trying for the FBI. Odd but I kinda would like to at least try for it. Although honestly a degree in engineering, specifically mechanical, would be nice. Who knows maybe engineering, will help me in trying for the FBI.

Revenge of the head cold

Do to this stupid head cold I missed the IDPA inro, which sucks. I literally fell asleep just before I was supposed to get ready to go and slept through it. That sucks.

I hate head colds.

I didn't get any sleep again, and today is the IDPA intro class, theraflu don't fail me now, I need a clear head. Add in I specifically got my revolver back for this and now I'm sick... Life you are a cruel bitch. As to everyone going no on the theraflu because it might make me drowsy....not a chance in hell. After an allergic reaction my system was flooded with a half dozen anti-histamines, after that I do not get any of the drowsiness. My tolerance is massive.

My revolver! How I miss you.

Happy days, the revolver, a 65-7, smith I sold might be mine again. I really missed it, and contacted the buyer and he is willing to work out selling it back to me. So now I just need to work out the details with them, and I'll be a proud owner of a wheelie again.

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I kinda want....

I have been thinking adding a .22 back to my collection. Sadly no funds means i have to trade, so ive been trying to get someone to bite on trading, no luck yet.

Smarter then Hell!

My cat is the smartest damn cat ever. He after being chased out of the in-laws house by their terrier through a doggie door in a new city in a new house, which he has only seen one room. Then outside of the yard and gone for two hours, he walked back into the yard back, into the house through the doggie door, back up the stairs and paws at the door to the bedroom we all have been sleeping in the last few days.

Politics

Pardon this entry will be more of a personal entry then anything else.

I am conflicted, by my ideals and the harsh realities of man.

Corruption is unavoidable, evil, and insanity are as much a part of the human as death and birth. Civilization is the quest to limit these things, but they will never be in my opinion eliminated. They are both hindrances and safety nets for extreme situations. I literally studied every religion I could find, and found them all lacking. So I made my own, the same with my politics. Sadly I find my politics conflicted, and when I say politics I must clarify in that I mean my own balance between my ideals and reality in how I act and think.

On one had I want to vote for the candidate that I believe will do my country and society the most good, on the other I wish to minimize the evil, corruption, and insanity of others. Thus I am conflicted to which is the best choice. I have yet to find a candidate that will do the most good, but I know which one will most likely do the worst. Still the gamble in a way seems pointless, because I realize the society I live in does not think at all like me, some are closer, but none are quite like me.

Nature in a way I see eliminates the radical, it prefers a certain level of conformity. Still the radical can be a new path, and I wonder am I on the right path, or a societal dead end.

I know this all sounds kinda vague, because it is, it is not the specific talking point of the day, it is the geist of my thinking.

I guess Im trying to work this out and hope by typing this out I will gain insight.

Perhaps I should be thinking more "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."-Edmund Burke, for I believe far to many do not think at all except for the petty vices and distractions of the difficulties of life. We all are addicts of something, mine just happens to be living free.

Guns4pennies update

Well curiosity got the better of me. I signed up for guns4pennies.com, wow. This site charges from .90 cents to .68 cents for each bid. You can buy 50 bids for 45 bucks, to 1000 bids for 680.00 dollars. So an item that finally sells for 1.70 they make at minimum 115.60 dollars plus the 1.70. Most items are going around 20-60 bucks, so that means they are making 1360 to 4080 on each auction.

Holy shit fan Sqeee, Beauty and the Beast reboot http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/19/cw-orders-pilots-for-satc-prequel-beauty-and-the-beast/?iref=allsearch. Please let them not fuck this up.

This should not make me giggle.

A certain firearms photographer, Oleg Volk, posted a like on his face FB page. https://www.guns4pennies.com/ After watching for a solid 20 minutes I could stop giggling everytime a auction got to the last second only too restart the clock plus 20 seconds. You see every bid adds that much time to the auction, thus making me giggle with sadistic glee. "Awww did you want that HK? To bad got to bid again. Did you win this time, NO." honestly its kinda depressing, and now that Olegs let the cat out of the bag no auction will end without a dragout fight to the online death of week long struggles. Still a Sig556 would be sweet.

Stupid is my name

Tried going to work today, stupid is all i have to say.

Not broken, kinda worse.

The good news, foot is not broken. The bad, lost bone density and have some bone deformities on my left foot. Calcium levels are normal, but for me its low, also means my osteopetrosis is getting really wonky in new bone growth. I will have to start taking supplements, or change diet, and start monitoring any changes in my skeleton. Which is going to be a bitch without insurance. If things get worse I could end up disabled, blind, deaf, or all of the above. I've already started a diet change, drinking a lot of milk(a gallon just the last few days), and eating more foods high in D and Calcium.

Pain filled insomnia

Son of a rabid monkey it sucks when painkillers wear off in the middle of the night.

Osteopetrosis sucks.

Well bad news, a few days ago my left foot started hurting, and now its hurting like I've taken up recreational foot shooting. I think its broken, but honestly can't remember doing anything that could have broken it. Which might mean a symptom I've been missing is starting to happen. I've got marble bones (osteopetrosis), before hand it just ment I had really dense bones, but everyone was amazed I didn't have the hallmark symptom of broken bones. It comes from the fact the cycle of the bones being broken down and rebuilt is out of wack, and it can create weak spots, or deformity. Early on-set often is fatal before age ten, later on-set often just means deformity and broken bones.

My Partner lost their job yesterday, things are not well. Blogger still has bugs in the mobile, but it is better. Oh well, Florida is looking nice now.

Chick-fil-a

Now I'm mostly talking to an empty room here but I will not buy anything from chick-fil-a because they have donated to "ex-gay" groups namely Family Research Center and Exodus International. Now that ok what ever, but then when called on it they said it was a mistake, and they did not fully know the groups activities, then the next quarter donated again to these same groups. Sorry but that's just under handed and downright insulting to me.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Erg, sick.

Came down with something last night paid homage to the porcelain shrine. Might end up calling out, depending if I feel human by noon.

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Update.

Well the ipod touch is up and running....it fixed itself.

Other news I finally had to change the batteries in my rev flashlights, only took them a few months.

My partners car was sabotaged, oil was put in the tire. Ask some of the more "inventive" bloggers what oil inside a tire will do. Did a check on brake lines and other parts no signs of tampering. Only thing that saved them from a bad blow out was slime was already in the tire and kept most of the oil off the actual tire, and possibly the nail that caused the tire to go bad and not explode. We got real lucky.

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Ah Swype...the experiment is over.

My Partner somehow switched to Swype on one of our mobile devices, the other is currently down, and its been interesting.
Swype has the speed for texting, and the corrective abilities to match, what it lacks is versatility, and ergonomics for single hand use or two handed use really either.

It does away with the androids ".com"button completely, and places the period in the most difficult to reach spot. Add in a dose of poorly sized keys and a silly drag to type function that just is clumsy without a lot of training. Ive been using it for a week now and still it is far slower then normal typing on the phone. It also removes a nice feature of the standard Android keyboard, arrow keys.

The only nice thing about it I can say is a separate "enter" and "go" buttons that make typing in certain webpage fields easier.

Why did I try it for a week if I didn't like it since day one? Couldn't figure out how to switch back.....til today.

Freaky dreams.

I just had one of my few dreams. It was a doozy.

I apparently in the dream had been in some kind of accident and they amputated my left hand.
As a ambidextrous person this is not a fun thought, and it was weird to have the sensations in the dream and see nothing but a stump. Phantom limb would suck, and this dream showed me how bad.

I must say it unnerved me to no end, the first thing I did upon waking was touch my face with my left and look at it.
I don't know what it would be like to wake up and realize that it wasn't a dream.

MBR, MR....longgun. Part 1

I've been trying to get this written as a draft, but have finally given up and will just be putting this out in parts.

Let me preface this with personally I think every house should have at least one long gun.

This does come into the obvious choice problem. Which one, and this comes into use, and capabilities in the factors to determine this.

Caliber, action, capacity and a whole lot more; all those play into uses and capabilities.

There is no one longgun for all uses and capabilities. That's something I realized early on, and it was a eye opener in a way.

I'm just going to go through my path, and my reasons for picking my longgun.

I personally struggled with this choice for years, my capabilities are limited due to some physical limitations of eye sight and nerve damage.

So right off the bat I knew my max range would be around 100 yards, without a scope, which I don't like on a rifle anyways.
I wanted a longgun that could take being out in the muck for a bit without being rendered useless.
I also wanted something at least .30caliber.
Capacity was kinda not a big issue for me, but I did want more then 5 shot capacity.
What I wanted it for was home defense, possible survival/hunting longgun, and battle rifle.

Those are my specs, and they evolved as I searched into that current list. These may change, depending on life.

First range, my range is limited because of my poor eyesight, and a shake because of nerve damage in my arms that makes me shake and twitch.
I cannot see really anything past 100 yards even with my glasses, general shapes and colors is the best I can see. After shooting a bit with a scope on some longguns I realized my eyes have problems focusing after initial shots to do follow up shots quickly, it can take up to 10 seconds(this found out by my doing the " 1 Mississippi count" way of finding out the amount of time) for my eyes to refocus on the scope image. I'm not sure why this happens but it does and its something I must take into account.
So ironsights are what I decided on, and they are a bit more durable then scopes. Right there I hit my first limiter, and realised sniper I am not.

Second was durability, this at first had me looking at bolt actions, but I found those limited to prone and supported shooting for quick follow up shots, and so I dropped that idea. Add in my lefthanded longgun shooting and the available models were thin. So semi-auto, lever-action, and pump-action;were left. I for years fought lever and pump actions, thinking them far to slow, until I realized that was my own capabilities were lacking and not a true problem of the actions in what I wanted it for, and most semi-autos also were not really lefty friendly. This is were I got stuck for a long time until I worked out other specs.

So that's part 1.

Just watched

I just finished watching Atlus Shrugged Part I, it was interesting, and definitely not a movie for most. I will have to think about it a bit before giving my full thoughts.

I do know one thing, it does bash you over the head with the main idea. Sheesh my head hurts from the constant bashing it took. But there are more things to think about before I talk more about it.

Ga Department of Revenue are idiots.

I just got a notice 10 days after they did so, that the Georgia Department of Revenue has suspended my cars registration for no insurance coverage....even though I have already sent them twice and so has my insurance company as well that my car has been insured with no gaps in coverage.


Sunday, July 8, 2012

Oh look.

Works, Broken. Who here thinks this is gonna change? I know I'm gonna leave soon if it doesn't soon.

I'm starting to feel like.

Ever have one of those days that you think your stuck in some kind of horrible experiment. I did today, and it seems to be university 25, just before it goes full Donner party crazy.

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Not sure anymore.

I was not happy with the SCOTUS ruling. Now I'm just kinda shellshocked. I'm just not sure where to go from here. My mind isn't sure of why it happened, and what it truly means.

Sunday, July 1, 2012

Well tomorrow is candyland.

Tomorrow I will be going to a local gunshow, just a shits and giggles trip. Sadly my Partner says no more guns....yet. I actually kinda want them to go, I want them to have something a little more potent for self defense then a mace canister. Im thinking something in the 400MW range, but sadly not in the budget. Any suggestions, and no firearms, they can't have any.

Its something I don't talk about, they are not a felon, but firearms are verbotten for them.

Yeah!

WHOOHOOO! (Victory dance!) I made the Gun Blog Blacklist. Minor victory, but a nice one.

Thursday, June 28, 2012

FUCK!

FUCK!

I'm working on something post wise.

It's an (gasp!), article. In it will be cross linked references, and a few educated guesses, and probably my paranoia kicking in bit some dots have been lining up in a way my tactical mind clicked with.

Got to a real computer today.

Well I have been managing to get to a real computer and post, and do some upgrades. I now have a full list of all the blogs I read on the right side.

T(my range buddy, whos nickname is still up in the air, and possible photography guru) have been working out some ideas to improve the blog visually. The grey black and white works, but needs some graphical enhancements, the logo and blog title are currently in brainstorming and rough draft modes.

We have lift off.....

Deflection! Smear! (I hear this in the tone of Ace Attorney's famous "OBJECTION! line.") The latest by Shall Not Be Questioned.

Tolda ya, kinda seems a little childish. But smear the whistle blowers, and praise the ass kissing, brown nose. Man its getting easy to predict their next move, if this was chess it would be check in 3.

Days of fighting.

I have spent the last few days trying everything I could think of to get bloggers site to work on my mobile devices. Which is how I do all of my blog stuff. No dice, can't do anything but post, and comment on other peoples blogs.....if I'm lucky.

I may just have to go elsewhere, or give up. It was just for fun, but this is seriously frustrating, and not fun now. I'm still having to use a third party app just to post.

Seriously is it too much to ask for them to make the site not a mobile killer. Heck YouTube, and Facebook run on my tech even in non-mobile webpage settings.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Blogger why do you hate me.

Well Blogger updated, and my phone, and ipod touch can no longer work the site. It refuses to scroll the page. It locks up, and just in general makes anything other then posting impossible. No responding to comments, no checking stats, and no changing anything. 

Heck I'm having to use a third party app just to post.

Infuriating is the word.

They hate mobile users.

Propper Fail

I just looked at some of the ads running on this blog. One is for Propper Clothing, I've blogged about them before, they suck to be short about it.

So its kinda funny they somehow ended up an ad on here.

Sick.

I got food poisoning or something. Still have to work though....all the other managers are out of town till Monday.

On happier news I went to range yesterday, took a friend from work there and much fun was had.

Don't Fuck with my family
Don't Fuck with my friends
Don't Fuck with my food
Don't Fuck with my home
Don't Fuck with my stuff

A little secret.

All of my posts for the last 3 months have been on a touch screen cell phone, or ipod touch. All thumb typed. Of course this means a lot of "damn you auto correct" moments.

Now I know its time to up my game.

Borepatch, now Tam have seen my blog. It's down right humiliating to compare my blog to theirs. No graphics, no pictures, and no snazzy link side bar. I think that's on the agenda now. I'm the child of a graphic artist, I should know better.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Hmm. Money.

I have a grand total of $3.83 from ads. Almost a cheap box of ammo.

I think its time to show.

Well its time to add pictures to this blog. My subject matter will be my maverick 88 shotgun. It's been changed. Not major, but a thing or two. Now I just have to figure out how to get pictures posted.....

I started with the Maverick 88 security, 7+1 capacity 12ga. 20" barrel, fixed stock. I've added a blackhawk 3point sling, and strapped the extra attachment options onto the stock. Why because slings usually break at the attachment points, and I like a spare. Then I added a simple no name brand shell holder onto the stock.

Next mod is going to be heatshield with ghost ring sights intergrated. I just can't get a feel for the front bead sight.

I also am thinking of a voodoo tactical chestrig, just for shits and giggles. Throw in some shell holder inserts in the mag pouches, because all the shotgun rigs I've seen aren't how I want it. It won't be fast, but it will be trim and functional. Plus the voodoo gear is affordable, and doesn't scream tacticool.

I don't know why crossdraw vests are so common, they are bulky, and cumbersome. Plus they kill your back from what I've seen, your mileage may very.

Saturday, June 2, 2012

Well its time to get this out in the open.

I hate the AR-15/M-16. I just do not trust them, to quote a movie "I Had A Bad Experience!". First time ever handling the M-16 when I was in basic training was less then inspiring. In the 40 rounds I was allowed to qualify with I had 12 jams, and lost a round do to malfunction.

It just would not reliably cycle. SPORTS, was used so often that the range master told me to "Forget time, just shoot." So it took me several minutes after the rest of my flight had finished qualifying to shoot my 39 rounds. I was almost so frustrated that I wanted to chuck the rifle at the target.

Throw in the fact that every other M-16 I saw there had at least one malfunction.....you get the point.

Another black mark is the caliber, 5.56. It's a .22, I at minimum want .30 caliber, less than that is for rabbits in my mind.

I also shoot left handed with longguns, which makes the M-16 a face hating weapon of pain. Yes there are left handed versions of the AR, but the M-16 no.

I apparently cannot tell my animals apart.

I have cat, that plays fetch, comes when called, and in general acts like a dog . Oh yeah he eats the dogs food.
I also have a dog, that eats grass constantly but never gets sick, doesn't try and eat the cats food, and generally is very sheep like.

So I went to get a cat and wound up with a dog, I went to get a dog and wound up with a sheep.

Next I'll get a lion that thinks its a turtle, at least that's the pattern I think.

Not much of a TV watcher.

I don't watch TV, mostly because its an expense I do not need. I do have internet, and thus am able to watch some shows online. Shows like Awake on NBC, which is one of two shows I actually watch. Well the Series Finale happened, the show is cancelled, and the main character is well...... I haven't a freaking clue.

Spoiler alert.




















He somehow joins a world where both his wife and son are alive, either he creates it in his own mind, wakes up from a terrible dream, or creates a new reality somehow to live in.

All of these are possible, and frankly the most likely answer is that he is unconscious still from the accident and has dreamed two separate worlds to deal with the potential loss of his son or wife or both. That this new reality is a further coping mechanism, and not the true reality. This would explain the ability of information from one world to play out in another, they both are constructs of his mind. If you notice he doesn't actually remember anything before the accident, no flashbacks to before that night, so somehow I believe his mind is piecing together someway to deal with the accident, and potential tragedy from it.

Further it was hinted that he was drinking before driving, and thus the two worlds and the conspiracy stretching between the two is a way to deflect guilt for possibly killing his family while driving. No ill intent of others, just a stupid choice that may cost him his family, and as such is unbearable for his mind to deal with.


Eh, what do I know, its a tv show, thats been cancelled.

Cats to Dang smart.

My cat realizing he can not open the treat bags without thumbs now brings me the bag and drops it at my feet. This is followed with the "open my treats now" look.

A little update

I went to the hospital after collapsing at work, had security and mental health show up. Overall almost go committed because the mental health people do not understand English, or the law. Thanks to my Partner and Georgiacarry.com I am not currently blogging from the nut hut.

Then a week after that I went to a little destress event where I met Borepatch, NC gun blog, and Fillyerhands. As well as some other blothers that do to stupid medicine side effects I have for gotten their names. Much pardons for such, it is not intentional.

Friday, May 18, 2012

English mofo do you speak it?!

Was in  the hospital, mental health can not tell the difference between a permit and a weapon, at least when used in a sentence. If I get ten thirteened, committed, because the mental health people don't understand English I will be most upset.
Update more later.
Go in for collapsing at work, get a mental health exam...not free of charge.

Weight log

To kinda keep track myself I will be updating my weight here.
Today I am 124.5, a new record since I met my Partner.

In other new the new phone a Samsung model #SGH-A777 phone works ok, but I am having volume issues. Being partially deaf this is a problem. I'm trying to make sure its the phone first and not me doing something stupid.
It's a phone, Bluetooth, and standard features. Oh yeah and a slider.
Maybe next phone I will join the Other Half and get a smartphone.

Saturday, May 5, 2012

DMV, do I even have to say it.

Today the Other Half had an exam, their finals exam to be exact. This requires showing up with photo ID, something they discovered was missing, so off to the DMV. (Where is the thunderclap, that deserves a thunder clap?)
Actually the Georgia DMV isn't bad, and its lightspeed compared to Florida's. The PIMA(Pain I My Ass), is having to disarm, really I've jumped through all the legal hoops of two different states, been trained by the military, and been shooting safely since I was 6, and I have to disarm....

I have to leave a gun either at home or in a car in a travel safe, because someone thinks that I am a danger....that's what it tells me, because you don't have metal detectors or any searches for weapons on entering. This seems a bit pointless, why make it a off limits place but not secure it against what you are trying to keep out. Right that's it it is pointless because if we can't keep Charles freaking Manson in one of the highest security prisons from getting a cellphone, weapons, and drugs then its not going to work outside a prison.

Another day another OC non event

I broke the screen on my cell yesterday, long story short calling a 10am when I went to bed at 5am leads to clumsy fumbling and thrown phones. So had to get a new one, thankfully I had an upgrade available. So I took a trip to my local cell companys store to get a new one. Free can't be beat. So in the store is several people, one of which asked a ton of questions about me carrying. I gave the guy, 19 by his admission, what I knew even though he showed a complete lack of understanding of the laws, or firearms in general. Eh we can't know everything.

Still other then questions, not a word was said.

What do you get....

Nother day older and drowning in debt.

Picnic time!

On a local gun board we had a open carrier arrested for well open carrying, despite Georgia law saying it is perfectly legal. But they are charging him with Criminal Trespass, which while armed is a felony.

The main reason he got CT was due to a "park security guard", who accosted him and didn't like him being "rude". Who then called the cops about him and I quote from the police report " a suspicious person carrying a pistol", that's line one of the officers report.

So I'm trying to get others to join me in a open carry picnic.
We'll see how well this goes.

Interesting Doctor visit

As I mentioned before I went to the doctor...

I to sum up a long story got locked out of my house, which required me breaking the window, and cutting up my right hand. My doctor knows I carry, so does all of his staff. So as I'm being weighed and such the nurse asks me if I am carrying. I think I replied with, " are my pants on?" In a joking manner. She asked me to take it off so they could get an accurate weight for me, the previous times I was not carrying do to being drugged heavily with cold meds each time. So I did so and not a word was said. Infact I asked her to shut the door, she didn't see a problem at all with me unholstering.

My only thing is I don't like to unholster at all, but accurate weight measures are important for my health. So I'll do so for this.

Whoa, 5 pounds.

I just started this new medication to help me gain weight. I've gained 5 pounds in less than a week. I had been losing a lot of weight, working around food will make you not want to eat. I plan on keeping on this till I gain 25 more pounds at least.

That should put me at minimum body weight for me, and put me at my heaviest ever.

A new candy store.

Yesterday being my day off I finally went to see the new Academy Outdoor store. Whoohoo new toy store! They had a decent sized gun counter, and shelves and shelves of ammo, parts, and accessories. (Wow that's a clunky sentence.) They also have the best prices I've seen all year.

So as I'm checking out things this lady is asking about various pistols, and the clerk actually says "I don't know", so I fill in a quick answer, which lead to me explaining a few basics about pistols for the lady. Had a nice chat about carrying, and tried to give her some info so she could pick the best pistol for her.

Funny thing was the staff were very nice but a little green. Just as I was about to leave one guy was asking the gun counter clerk about a beretta neo specifically about the dial just under the barrel, not a gun I am terribly familiar with, and this is where the clerk gets an A+, he said and this is paraphrased "I don't know. Why don't we ask this guy" motions at me "he seems to know a bit about guns."
He actually admitted not knowing something and asked someone else for info.

Sadly I hadn't a clue what it was for, we all speculated a bit, but none of us knew for certain. For the record its what holds the barrel on, its part of the takedown.

Overall a nice experience, and welcome addition.

Haven't updated in awhile.

Well a little update.

My Partner was released from the hospital a few weeks ago, they are doing ok, but things have been a bit rocky in places.

Second work is going well, I am currently still training for Management. The pace though is slow, the last real hurdle is making a great pizza. That is the big thing with the owner before he will move someone into a management postition.

Third, I might just have a range buddy. One of the rules my Dad taught me was that you never go to the range alone. I now have someone that I trust to go to the range with me.

Fourth, we need internet at the house. We still are without internet at the house.

Fifth, we have a new car. A 1983 Ford Futura with 41,000 miles. Runs great just the carb sticks a bit till she warms up. 15mpg....sucks. Still she runs and thats all that matters.

New gun and new holster.

Since starting my new job I have needed a new holster to conceal my bersa. I found it in the galco tuck n go. It's a great holster, minus one thing the pattern is for a rounded trigger guard, and the bersa has a squared one. Still a little work, and letting it sit in the holsters and it fits fine now. It rides at 11:30, and no one is the wiser. Pretty comfy too.

Got it pretty cheap too, 23 bucks not including shipping.
Sadly last gun purchase for awhile, Partner and I need to save for other things.

Sir Sig is here.

I just got back from Florida, and paying the down payment on my Dads Sig 226. He started loading up all the ammo and handing me holsters, and kinda made it a point that I was leaving then with the Sig.

This Sig holds a very dear place in my heart. This is the first firearm I ever fired at the age of 6. It is also the firearm that saved my Dad and Moms life. It cemented my love of Sigs, and made me eventually get a a Sig 220. It has never had a single malfunction in 23 years, and was my Dads service pistol his whole career as a Deputy.

I've spent more time at the range with this pistol then every other firearm I have ever shot combined. It fits my hand like that favorite pair of jeans, and at 7 yards I can put 15 rounds in a one inch square.

Needless to say, I will be passing this pistol on to my kids.

Headin to Gunshine state

This Sunday I will be heading out on my first day off to Florida. Then it will be back 2 days later to work....where the general store manager just stepped down as manager.

In gun news Sig has come out with the 224 a compact 9mm, 357sig , and 40 s&w. It's pretty much the 290 on steroids. No decocker, and seems to be DAO. I'm just not feeling it. The 290 just doesn't feel like a Sig, and the DAO was nice but not what I want in a Sig.
