  1. Last March I drove from Cheyenne to Cabela's in Sydney Nebraska, 100 miles each way. Looked at a Ruger Mark IV hunter and really liked it. Out of state so I couldn't just buy it and take it home. No gun stores in Cheyenne could get hold of one for me, including Sportsmans Warehouse. So I called Cabelas in Sydney, bought the gun over the phone, they shipped it to my local gunshop, who did the paperwork and I finally got the gun in early April. Before the weather got nice enough to take it to the range, i heard about the recall. Sent the SN to Ruger, sure enough my Mark IV was on the list for recall. Ruger would send a shipping box, In the meantime don't shoot it. Two months later I finally got the shipping box and sent the grip etc. back to Ruger. Rugers blurb said they'd have it fixed in about a week. They've had it about three weeks now, and haven't managed to get it back to me yet. I have lots of Ruger guns, pistols and rifles, and love them all. But this pistol I bought on 5 April and have not been able to shoot as of August 27 is a real pain in the butt (I wonder if I'll get to shoot it before the snow flies) and I'll think twice before buying another Ruger!

  2. When I was a kid 70+ years ago in San Angelo, all jeans had cuffs and button flies and were Levis. (All hats were Stetsons too) and no one ever managed to wear a pair out. Maybe a patch here and there, mostly on knees. There was a tradition of breaking in a new pair that involved a watering trough or a mud puddle, a dusty drag on a dirt road, road apples, and a few other touches, wear 'em till they were dry. Same with boots. Never heard of penny loafers until the family moved to Minnesota and cowboy boots were NOT worn in High School. Jeans were not allowed either.

  3. About 25 years ago I bought a blackthorn walking stick (Cane) on a visit to Dublin. It is heavy and thick and near as I can tell unbreakable. I use it all the time now, since I have leg problems. I'm sure it would do nicely for beating an assailant off a bus driver though I have not used it for that purpose yet. If it didn't work, my Kimber Ultra Carry .45 would. I don't leave home without them. The O'Meara Himself
