Del Fatti 2’’ J-Frame Pocket Holster PH-3 Brown Alligator with Natural Horsehide back


It is downright gorgeous on both sides, and best of all, Del Fatti Leather will be shipping it out my way today.

Yeah, I know that I am on a strict retirement budget, but I really did need a properly themed Florida Vacation Holster.

I saw a genuine honeybee today


A lone honeybee was having its way with my rock garden yellow clover during a sunny break in what was an otherwise cloudy day. 

I never thought there would come a day when I would become excited over seeing a honeybee, but I suppose the times they are a changing.   The dwindling agriculture in this area just does not require many hives and the few apiarists around here are mostly dedicated hobbyists.

Waukegan Assault Weapons Ban ordinance update 6/17/2013


Richard Pearson of the Illinois State Rifle Association phoned me today to let me know about the proposed Waukegan Assault Weapon Ban ordinance (first I had heard of any such thing was yesterday) and that the City Council had it on the agenda for tonight, and that pro-Second Amendment folks should attend the meeting and let their feelings be known.

There was not a huge turnout, but not bad especially considering the lack of press.   I counted 10 speakers against the ordinance and nobody spoke in favor of it.  Joan Schrank of Waukegan's historic Schrank’s Smoke'n Gun shop received rousing applause after she made her comments.  Comments made by community activist Keith Turner were also very well received.  A couple of aldermen also spoke against the proposed ordinance. The others in the gallery who did not speak publicly did seem to be mostly second amendment supporters.  Mayor Wayne Motley did not call it for a vote and sent it back to the Public Safety Committee.  It's not over until it is over.

Ring ring ring! Big Bad Obama and The Newnited Nations gonna-grab-yer-guns without you send us lots more money!


Well, while all that may be so, this old gunslinger has given until it hurts (the credentials in my profile do not include the time of my year-to-year memberships, or my supplemental donations) and I cannot afford to give one more dime to the good and just cause of protecting our Second Amendment.  Unlike government, my life runs by a strict balanced budget and my retirement years require fiscal discipline. So, please quit your calling and quit your mailing because I’m all in, and please quit sending my name to every new “gun rights” organization willing to pay money for your mailing and phone lists. 

To those who have not yet given to the cause, please consider doing so and please give generously if you are able, because money and lobbying makes our political world go around.   Please be politically active and educated; know and vote the facts.
