I'm Still Here!

Just busy lately. So I got a line on a Python and went to it. Like a moth to a flame. I blame this guy.

The thing is I cannot take pictures of shiny stuff it seems. I can make a small aperture, crank up the ISO setting, putz with the lights, but for now this is the best I can do for these. 

The 4" Python has a friend now! Oh, and a new little sister! 


Colt Mustang XSP. I'm impressed. The Bodyguard and P3AT have been retired! They should have come out with thing 10 years ago!

Watch This Space!

Sorry gang. I have been busy and remiss here!

So a company went bankrupt? Lets buy a gun from them! 

Lets try one of these. Should be here by the end of the week. I am sure it will beat the horrible trigger on the S&W Bodyguard. 

We shall see!

Another Excuse to Spend Money!

Although I call the 1994 Mustang my beater, it deserves some respect. I bought it new and it has always met my definition of a fun car. Fun cars to me are any car you do not have to walk home from. I don't count the punk that ran the stop sign that I t-boned as it was not the cars fault =)

Although mechanically sound, some of the usual wear and tear items are showing some age. This makes me feel even older. I already get the NPD 1st gen catalogs and now this:

Sigh.... Ok Francis, maybe some new bling for you after we get done with the 1964.5!

Its been a good ride so far old girl! Thanks for always being there for me.

That Was FUN!

So I actually had some quality time with some 1911's. Two Commanders pushing 30 years old and a new M45.  The 1911 has detractors, but IMHO, they are hard to beat.

As a bonus they are fun to shoot as well! Even more so with good friends.

Colt Matters

I find interest in the companies and others circling the technically dead Company known as Colt. 

Yes, overpriced, yes, no real innovations in years, etc. I get that. The "Rampant Pony" only gets you so far even if you know what that is now. 

I tell my students in CCH class to not carry a Handgun you care about. 

I am going to break my own rule this weekend and carry a  close to 30 year old Colt I bought new with an El Paso holster. 

Why? Because I can first, second because after actually taking this to the USTC for a three day class surrounded by the wonder nines, it needs to take a trip.
