Apologies for the lack of content (as usual, lately). Haven’t been online much at all. Can’t stand the news, or seeing Western culture disintegrate. As I’ve said before, it’s like watching a glacier destroy a village. You can’t believe it’s happening, yet each time you glance back more damage has been done and still nobody is doing anything.
So, same ol’, same ol’.
We did break out of our rut a bit Thursday, and went to the local shooting range. Me, bro, the GSB, plus a (firearms expert) friend joined us. Just a few minutes of his instruction improved us greatly.
This was the first time I’d ever fired a semi-auto handgun. Strictly revolvers, ’til now. And while getting a concealed carry permit is a huge responsibility, the Glock 17 makes me want to bear down and…er, bite the bullet.
Oh, yeah…also noticed the Awful (Not A) Limerick post got more comments than usual. But I’m afraid to read them. What if you guys turned this into a Bad Poetry Throwdown? Too scary. At least, it’s too scary at two in the morning. So, next time online I’ll catch up on what’s actually happening here.
I still have my 2nd gen Glock 17. Runs like a Swiss clock, even after… Oh I don’t know, a few thousand rounds over almost 20 years 😛
Also, MagPul “Art of the dynamic handgun”. Very down to earth shooting, very realistic. Been shooting like that for a while now and yeah, it works.
Awesome as that was, the best thing might have been the final image.
Having a CCW makes me wish I lived somewhere that allowed open carry, like, say, Arizona.
Maybe Wormme could try Palos Verde for employment?
Just now use a semi-auto and yet you called yourself “gun-poppin'”!
My revolver will fire just as fast as I can pull the trigger, it’s just more exercise than I like.
Maybe it’s not getting to walk you enough.
What is the single best 1911 to hand down for future generations? Glock, Kimber, Ed Brown, _____fill in the blank
Glock ‘n spiel. That was so smooth I just accepted it as a quip without realizing it was a pun. Now I slap forehead. Glock. And Spiel.
Yeah, he’s such a punny guy! All those puns!
Thank you both, guys! That one snuck up on me, too. That’s why writing always feels more like discovery than invention, to me.
