    PS - when I said I put 200 rounds down the square range, that isn't too much. However, I forgot to say recently. That was just a couple of practice sessions. Not the entire package. I found in the...

    I dry fired the safety off sequence quite a bit. Before a match, I would do about 10 to 15 reps before starting out for the range with the 1911. Wanted to oil the retrieval pathway in my little ol'...

    I carry a J frame at times for convenience or dress restrictions. What I did was take Claude Werner's snubby class and then shot said J frames quite a bit in club match IDPA. Must have put several...

    Had Glocks and 1911s for years. For the former, manipulating the controls with my trigger finger was no problem and now ingrained. Locking the slide back is not a problem with my right hand. I...

    I had a PM9 when they first came out and it didn't run. I had no motivation to play with it, so it traded to a G26. Now, that was a long time ago and I have no experience with the latest versions.

    I will slightly disagree in a humorous incident. I was playing golf and way down the fairway was a foursome. We wanted to tee off, so we yelled and screamed "Fore" as one should. I was reluctant to...

    We have lots of fox in the area. Squadrons of geese - not to divert from memes! Lots of coyotes flipping out some on Nextdoor. Like I didn't have them all over in TX. We do have a bear once in...

    No, that was in San Antonio. Erie is a recent move for family reasons. We started in NY, moved to Oregon, then Texas then back to Erie. No scorpions but deer tracks all around the house in the...
