  1. Closest I can find: http://www.ballisticsbytheinch.com/22.html
  2. Yesterday, I read an in depth article about the health risks and dangers of over indulging in alcohol. Today, I decided to be proactive about the situation. I decided to give up reading.
  3. After a particularly hectic day, I told the wife I wanted "Mistakes Were Made" engraved on my headstone when I die. Without missing a beat, she quipped, "wasn't that on your birth certificate?"
  4. Been teaching the dog to beg. Last night, she came home with $42.80.
  5. Reason? For two of the guns, yes. One was my SBR, a 10.5" Spikes Tactical in 5.56 mm, my carry patrol carbine. Another was my Ruger LCP Max 380, a backup/off duty gun. The other four were primary duty guns. Any one of the primary duty guns would have been fine, but I have never liked to be tied down to only carrying one particular gun. So, I qualified with a Dan Wesson Guardian 9mm (100%), a S&W Model 10 3" (100%), a Springfield Armory TRP in 45 ACP (98%) and a Colt Python (96%). The Dan Wesson and the S&W Model 10 will be my primary carries. I'm also currently still qualified with a Ruger SR1911 9mm Officers Model (100%). A couple of other officers qualified with patrol carbines, primary duty guns and backup guns. Most just shot their primary duty gun and left.
  6. I used to work security at gun shows, and rarely took my pay home. I picked up some really neat guns there. I too have about quit attending because of the influx of flea market junk dealers and the over pricing of gun show staples like ammo and reloading components.
  7. The course is two rounds, then reload and reholster. Then you fire 12 rounds more. With a hi cap semi auto, you can do it all from one mag. No mag change required. I loaded and indexed two rounds in the cylinder before moving to the 7 yard line, then used two speed loaders to complete the course.
  8. Shot qualifications for my Police Department Sunday. Most everybody shot one time, then exited left. I qualified with six different guns. Shot 100% with four of them, 98% with one and 96% with the other. This was my best qualification, with a S&W Model 10 round butt with 3" barrel. Course starts with 12 rounds at 25 yards, then 12 rounds at 15 yards, 14 rounds at 7 yards, and 12 rounds at 5 yards. Times go down as distance decreases. So, when I say "get off the lawn", I mean it
  9. Sold a ton of these while I was managing a gun shop. Never had a complaint with them. The couple I've shot did well. Very reliable.
  10. The wife told a friend to not be disturbed by my demeanor when she was around. She explained to the friend that her husband (me) is in my terrible 60s, and the friend nodded knowingly.
  11. By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation Whereas, from the beginning of this Nation, law enforcement officers have played an important role in safeguarding the rights and freedoms which are guaranteed by the Constitution and in protecting the lives and property of our citizens; and Whereas, through constant application of new procedures and techniques, such officers are becoming more efficient in their enforcement of our laws; and Whereas it is important that our people know and understand the problems, duties, and responsibilities of their police departments and the necessity for cooperating with them in maintaining law and order; and Whereas it is fitting and proper that we express our gratitude for the dedicated service and courageous deeds of law enforcement officers and for the contributions they have made to the security and well-being of all our people; and Whereas, by a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962 (76 Stat. 676), the Congress has requested the President to designate May 15 of each year as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week during which such May 15 occurs as Police Week: Now, Therefore, I, John F. Kennedy, President of the United States of America, do hereby designate May 15, 1963, and May 15 of each succeeding year, as Peace Officers Memorial Day, in honor of those peace officers who, through their courageous deeds, have lost their lives or have become disabled in the performance of duty. I also designate the week of May 12 through May 18, 1963, and the calendar week during which May 15 occurs of each succeeding year, as Police Week, in recognition of the service given by the men and women who, night and day, protect us through enforcement of our laws. I invite State and local governments, patriotic, civic, and educational organizations, and the people of the United States generally, to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week in this year and each succeeding year with appropriate ceremonies in which all our people may join in commemorating law enforcement officers, past and present, who by their faithful and loyal devotion to their responsibilities have rendered a dedicated service to their communities, and, in so doing, have established for themselves an enviable and enduring reputation for preserving the rights and security of all citizens. In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed. DONE at the City of Washington this fourth day of May in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-seventh. JOHN F. KENNEDY By the President: GEORGE W. BALL, Acting Secretary of State
