  1. Sadly my oldest daughter is the same.  If she has no choice and goes in a gun store with me , she looks with disdain at all guns UNLESS they are purple like the sig 938 with reflective purple slide or have a purple grip like a ruger semi auto.  Drives me nuts.  She knows better.   


    Meanwhile I went to buy my mom a hogue grip for her j frame and she could xare less about the color of the grip but all midway had for hers was purple so purple it is.

  2. I told her what you all suggested and she asked me to work on it for her as her thumb is bruised.  I wish she had bought the 22 mag like I told her.

  3. When my mom lived in st Louis and there were riots there she asked for my help getting a gun.  I suggested a 351pd in 22 mag since it has zero recoil , holds 7 and would be easier for her to handle.  The local dealer had one in stock but talked her into the 642 in 38.  Not a bad choice really.


    Now she lives by me so I took her out to shoot it.  Just as I figured,  it hurts her thumb and the trigger pull is hard so the dealer told her to use a finger from both hands to fire it.   


    It has the wood grip with finger grooves.  Is there a grip that will help her hold it better and not hurt her right thumb?  A rubber grip maybe?  


    He sold her winchester hollow points.  After letting her shoot cowboy loads from it, I gave her hornady lite 90 grain rounds to keep in it.  I told her she would be helpful to someone since they are the pink breast cancer rounds so whomever she shot would not get breast cancer.  She giggled. 


    She shot those rounds better.

  4. A month ago I fired the new Cimarron Old Glory 1860 Mason 45 LC.  Back then, it had a hard time pulling the hammer all the way back one handed.  Initially hard even for two handed shooting.  It would jam once in a while during the first 50 rounds.  It got slightly better as I went.  


    Today I fired another 50 rounds  MUCH, MUCH better.  zero jams and the hammer goes back and locks fine.  Fires smooth fast or slow.  It seems to just to have needed to be broke in .  I like the pewter American flag on the grip.  


    I love my country.  I usually do not go for the guns with American flag painted all over it.  I find ti disrespectful to our flag, but one on the grip seems alright to me.

  5. When I was a teenager in the 70s I ran into an actual reformed hippie .  We spent the weekend with his father who, like my dad was a preacher.  


    He told me before he repented from that life he could look at someone and tell if they were pro or anti establishment.   He said I was pro establishment.   I was glad.   


    A true believer,  either way can probably tell if they thought about it. 

  6. I have a few hundred GOEX BLACK DAWG 44.40 ammo .  It is blackpowder ammo.  I won't charge $100 a box like my dealer does. Much less.   Probably $38 a box plus shipping.   I also have 45lc blackpowder rounds.  12 guage as well.

    Don't ya wish you would have thought of this?????????????


    I've actually done that.  Santa comes dressed during the day of Christmas eve as well as again in secret that night and sits my children in his lap and gives them a present and leaves me a present.  Sometimes he leaves a screw driver or wrench or a glock and then kisses my wife before leaving before I get back home

    Women frequently confuse their ability to communicate with my ability to care what they have to say.

    My wife wants to know if you are married.   I love what you had to say myself,  as I just told her Monday when she was nagging about the bushes and etc that complaining too often makes.people not listen

    Once in Florida at the beach during the florida gator, Uga  game weekend a 70+ year old man who could barely move was trying to get in his dodge ram pickup with only a ga bulldog red with black tiger stripes tight speedo.  That was 15 years ago and am still traumatized.
