Cal City Bakery Robber Shot Seven Times by Owner

He should have taken the money and left.  The owner got skittish when the bad guy marched him to the back of the store.

By the way, it is ill-advised to bring a toy gun to a real gun fight.

An Important Announcement from Larry Seecamp


A note from Larry Seecamp:

"I am pleased to announce that Whalley Precision in Massachusetts is taking over production of the Seecamp line of LWS pistols. These pistols will continue to be produced under the Seecamp name. I plan to stay as involved as circumstances dictate. John Whalley and his brother Dave have owned LWS pistols for some twenty years. Over that period, John has become a valued friend. I only recently met Dave.  The Whalley brothers are extremely talented, intelligent, and every bit as committed to quality as my father and I have been. I couldn't ask for a better arrangement in carrying on the company tradition. Whalley Precision also has a trained manufacturing staff that we at Seecamp never had. They have the capability of producing a product as good as we ever did and with greater consistency and better service. As mentioned, I intend staying involved. The communication among those involved has been excellent.

Customers and friends who have called us in the last year know we have been experiencing problems trying to recover from the recent loss of several decades of employees. Those employees all learned or perfected their craft here. We've never hired a machinist, tool maker, or anyone with the type of manufacturing background that Whalley employees have. Unfortunately, core employees here in Milford retired almost simultaneously and for a variety of reasons younger employees failed to fill their shoes.

This move has all the signs of being an unforeseen blessing. Not having any children, I’ve often wondered what would happen once I could no longer be around to monitor production. I think Whalley Precision is the answer.

Best, 

Larry"


A note from John & Dave Whalley:

"Here at Whalley Precision we look forward to continuing Larry’s longstanding tradition of quality handcrafted firearms and outstanding customer service. We plan to work closely with him to continue his legacy and we ask everyone for a bit of patience during the manufacturing transition. We will get things up and running as quickly as possible, but when it comes to craftsmanship and personal protection there can be no compromise."


Review of Mitch Rosen No. 18 Pocket Holster



(DISCLAIMER: This review (as with all of my reviews) is just good old fashioned "campfire talk" and not a recommendation for or against purchase.)

Cowhide
Natural finish, rough side out
Ambidextrous
Available from Mitch Rosen and others

Having no anti-print panel, this holster design works in either the left-hand or right-hand pants pocket.  As evidenced by the sweat stains on the one side, I usually carry this pistol in my right-hand pocket.  The tighter the pants, the more the handgun and holster print through the fabric.  I don’t worry much about this; on the rare occasions when there was a concern, a folder paper towel or a handkerchief served to mask the outline.

This is the sole pocket holster that I own for my North American Arms Guardian, which I purchased in August of the year 2000; I assume that I purchased the holster shortly after buying the pistol but I cannot give an exact date because I did not keep that receipt.  It is possible that I waited a year or more to buy the holster, but I don’t think so.   In any case, owning a holster for (somewhere around) fourteen-years is not the same as USING it for that long.  Regardless, this one has substantial “pocket time” and the stitching and leather (other than an age appropriate patina) have held up well over the years.   The NAAG was my exclusive pocket gun until I bought a couple of Seecamps, and then it became part of a rotation (to let the holsters “air out” and make time to clean the pistols on a quasi routine basis).  (Note:  The NAAG was also a favored Kit Gun of mine, carried in a DeSantis rug)  Do I carry more now that Illinois has Concealed Carry?  Not a whole lot more.  I always carried (legally) at home and quite often at work, my driving time being most of the difference between now and then.

Tomorrow is Erection Day

If you don’t vote, or if you vote for the wrong people, we all are screwed.

As an aside, Harvard is teaching how to have anal sex.  For some reason the course is listed under Planetary Science as "Probing Uranus."


Didn’t our current POTUS attend Harvard?  Does this redifine his matriculation?  Is this why Vladimir Putin is so fearful of an Obama attack from the rear?

Does Harvard Political Science classify faux pro-gay-rights politicians as "Homo Electus?"

How does Hillary feel about participating in an anal sex course at Harvard?
