Annual Cub Scouts Popcorn Fundraiser is underway



There will always be a place in my heart for Scouting.

Usually with a parent in tow, the Scouts are going door to door or hawking their wares at the entrances and exits of some local stores. I'm in for $70 this year.

Count me out of AARP


My long-term membership has expired and I choose not to renew.


I am a numbers guy and never found their “products” (which are in name only) to be bargains. 

Money does move our political world so I am researching other senior citizen related lobby groups that may be more agreeable to my sensibilities.

Matt Del Fatti has several model SLP holsters in stock for 5’’ 1911 pistols.



For the moment, it looks like Matt has several black and one brown available.

The SLP holster attaches to the belt via a slot in a wing extending to the rear of the weapon and a tunnel loop behind the weapon. This is a good general use concealment/range holster for folks with smaller waists.  

It appears that yesterday the collective media and a host of politicians suffered from hysteria induced AR-15 Premature Ejaculation.


Today we are reading that the Washington Navy Yard Shooter may have waltzed in with a 6-round (5-round magazine and 1-round in the chamber) 12-gauge pump shotgun and picked up additional firepower as he moved along. Click HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE
