You'll find, as you go deeper down this particular rabbit hole, that guns cause friends...not crime. - Me

Okay, Somemore added to blogroll.

Finally got around to adding a few more to the Good Reads list. You can find them over on the right.

No...No...No, your other right, yeesh!!


Target Down.

Well since nearly every blog I read has posted pictures of their targets, I thought I'd get into the game too. These are the targets from my CCW class, at least the ones I qualified on. The practice target had more holes than could be easily counted.

This is from my Ruger 9mm. I kinda pushed that first shot a bit, hence the hole in the 8 ring. The key is SIGHT ALIGNMENT and TRIGGER CONTROL folks, don't rush your shots.

This is from the .38 Special borrowed from one of the deputies I know who was functioning as one of the RSO's (the Sheriff's Office firearms instructor was giving the class so I knew at least 2 people in there). Since state law says we must qualify with both semi-auto and revolver with at least 20 shots each. I think only one person failed to qualify out of all.

Not bad considering that's the first 20 shots I've ever fired from a S&W .38 DA revolver.


Carry Pieces...


Ruger P-95DC 9x19mm (Decocker only model).

Rock Island Armory M1911-A1 .45 ACP.

Surprise, Surprise they still haven't jumped up and killed me or anyone else. Mine must be defective.

A Battle of Wits...

The only problem is only one man will be armed. Well some may decide to sleep late, or go to bed early. I will be watching the EPIC battle that will be Caleb vs Dennis Henigan of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership (if you think I'm going to give them a link...think again).

UPDATE: Not the epic battle we had hoped for, yet somehow I have to add this to the Win column. Caleb did great. Dennis, well not so much what with pulling "facts" out of his ass like he did. Then again that's what the VPC and Brady Bunch do best.

UPDATE 2: Caleb has the video up here.


The First Post

Ok this should get more interesting from here on out. Just as soon as I get more than a couple thoughts together.
