I was reading in the American Rifleman where they recommended a load of a few grains of Clays powder behind a 168 grain bullet for the 7.62mm NATO / .308 Winchester round. It gives a velocity of ~900 feet per second.

It sounds like the perfect dispatching round.

So do you poop in it and someone else sleeps in it or do you sleep in it and then someone poops in it during your sleep... or they poop in it after you slept in it, forcing you to dig a new hole the next day? The possibilities are endless!

In other news, one of my coworkers was besieged by a rabid raccoon that appeared on her balcony one day. It tried to attack her and her kids but there was the glass door preventing it... which, according to her, didn't stop it from pawing and jumping at the glass in its attempts to attack her. If it was me and I had to, I would use a shotgun on the sucker.

Being homeless.
The cooking part is fine, I love that.
I would even like to join bear grylls for one or two days, but not for longer or he might come up with the idea to drink pee.

My time in the army plus several music festivals taught me that camping sucks big time after two days, and sleeping sucks every night in a tent.

Doubled the amount of pistols I own last night. My dad passed away back in January and last night my mom asked to come get his two pistols. One was a Ruger Mark III pistol I gave him on Father's Day a few years ago. The other is a Beretta M 1934 made in 1941. This one appears to be in great shape. I might go and see if I can find some ammo for it and take it shooting next time I go to the range. More family firearm heirlooms to pass on to my boys when they get older. Except my AR, that is being buried with me.

That's awesome that she brought them to you (NOT about your dad; sorry to hear that, man!). Things in general, but guns in particular, have more meaning when given from your parents.

As a matter of fact, I broke out my Security Six my dad gave me for my 21st birthday/Christmas/Basic Training graduation, and realized I still don't have anything to pack it in other than the cheap Uncle Mike's generic nylon holster he gave me with the gun. I'm thinking about something like this as suitable leather for it; what say you all?

I like the EPS gear. when I get a fancier set of grips for my S&W 58 I'm going to get one of their "Tom Threepersons" rigs for old time sake.

They make great stuff. I have one of their tortilla holsters for my Springfield Mil-Spec.


Last Tuesday made a year at my current gig and finished my probation. Should see a nice little raise on my next paycheck!

I have a couple of the old Lawrence 'Threepersons" holsters for my single actions.

One of my replica SAAs looks nicely worn and matches the holster.

There is NO competition of ANY kind within a full day's drive of my place. I just figured out a couple of days ago that, other than only one fixed sight SA, I have a lot of CAS options.

Here is a Lawrence holster I bought when I lived in Portland. I bought it the day I heard they were closing their doors. I later acquired one of their leather working vices from their closeout sale.

Cop Talk

Ted Blocker is the "descendant" of sorts of the Lawrence legacy and I had them dust off the old "Duke" pattern (according to lore they made a couple for the Duke), And whip this one up to fit me and my Beretta Stampede when I was in Portland/Tigard on business a few years ago. I would have to work hard to count the horseback miles I have on this rig.


Cop Talk

Last time I looked it was in their catalog.

That's some beautiful leather, man! That sucks about the competitions, though. I've only been to one myself, as an observer. One of the organizers let me shoot one of the stages with his guns afterwards, just as a "try and see if you like it" thing, though. If I had the cash for all the guns and gear required, I'd be all over that.

ETA: I've also wanted a "Duke" rig since as soon as I knew what they were. Galco did a production run of them not that long ago, I think.
