Shoot'n and Blogg'n

Since it's probably not in the dictionary, how does one write Blog'n? One G or two? Part of the reason I started this was to make be a better writer but maybe there's little hope for that..

We finally got some range time in and I finally found a few minutes to write. We have so much going on with the family. My wife is taking a new job in North Carolina, my son's going to be life guarding before school and swimming after, and my little one has an afternoon packed with swimming and dance. I'm going to need a couple extra hours a day for all the running To to steal a line from Emily, sleep is for the weak!

I finally got the SR9c out for it's trial run and put 150 or so rounds of Winchester white box through it. It ran flawlessly, as expected, and I've decided that it will be my new carry gun. It's much easier to conceal, lighter, and easier to shoot than my M&P 40 compact. My SR9 is just too big, especially in New York, where your limited to 10 rounds. Half the grip is empty plastic.

My son has decided he wants one too.

We decided to celebrate diversity with the M&P 15 with a Leupold 1.5-5x tactical scope, the Ruger SR9, SR9c and my sons Henry Big Boy in .45 Colt.

Good news!! The S&W bodyguard .380 that I won at the NRA meeting is on it's way. I should have it this week and I'm looking forward to it replacing my Beretta .32 pocket gun. Maybe a little Sunday trial after our club meeting followed by a range report..


  1. Dave, I'm on Day 2 of carrying mine about. First gun I ever had that I could conceal in my waistband :) :) :)

  2. I finally did get a box plus of ammo through the bodyguard and I like it a lot.
    Lissa, as for not being able to conceal much in your wastband, you should be happy! Somedays I feel as though I could conceal an AR.
