Old School on Line!

So after a CCH class today a prior student wants personal instruction tomorrow. She is very logical and methodical in her quest for a Handgun suited for her. I get that. She seems to have found the Smith and Wesson M&P 9C as her choice after she shot several Handguns. Guess what. There are none to be had for love nor money here right now. 

She wants to continue training. I get that. So for tomorrow my full sized M&P VTAC 9 is in the range bag along with one of the new M&P .22s

That presents a problem for me. I will not go on the line without a weapon. The M&P is my carry gun. 

So tomorrow an old friend will be on my hip. A Colt Combat Commander .45ACP in a El Paso Saddlery rig.


I DO love this pistol. Its thirty years old and went to Blackwater while everyone else ran plastic bullet hoses. 

It comes at a cost however. During class today some asked about the hardware I presented. They were sharp. They wanted to know where to get a S&W Model 4006 or Colt Detective Special. I had to tell them that several Handguns presented during class were older than them. Nobody wanted to know where to get the Kel-Tec. 

I returned to the Fortress of Solitude. Congratulations to my students today! 




  1. Old stuff STILL works (and some of us prefer the old stuff)... Thanks for going the extra step for the lady!

    1. Thanks NFO! I DO love my Colt's! Sadly, they have appreciated so much I will not normally carry one. Well except for the new Defender =)

  2. Class act (no pun intended) all the way.

  3. Nothin' wrong with some cocked and locked carry...
