52-years since the assassination of POTUS JFK


I am surprised that this topic is not splashed all over the interwebz.  Maybe it is getting to be like the assasination of POTUS Abe Lincoln, just pages from a requisite high school history class.

There are many of us who remember the JFK assassination very well; for some of us, the anniversary is a day of reflection.  Time will erase all of us, but hopefully the pages of recorded history will endure.

It was a crazy world back then.  I suppose the world is no less crazy today.

Subsequent to the Islamic Terrorist attacks in Paris, latest polls have Vladimir Putin surging ahead of all Republican and Democrat candidates in the 2016 United States Presidential Race


When our homegrown leadership fails in the war on Islamic terrorists, you'll be glad that we have Vlad!

(Mr. Putin was born in Hawaii and has a valid birth cerificate to prove it.)

Our national hero cop, buried with honors befitting a king, was not killed in action. His "murder" was staged; he killed himself because he was a selfish criminal and a common fraud.

This whole thing is sick. 

I have been told by more than one "regular cop" that most gung-ho "tactical cops" are nut-jobs that cannot be trusted.  Point taken.

Lake County, Illinois has a long history of law enforcement corruption.

Ken Null SMZ holster for Beretta Cheetah 84 FS


The pistol has been here over a month now and I fancy that the Beretta 84 FS will work out to be a fine personal-defense concealed-carry piece.  It is not too big and not too small; it is kind of like a muscular Walther PPK sans the painful hammer bites and slide cuts.  It has the same capacity as the Browning Hi-Power but is chambered for the 9x17mm rather than the 9x19mm of the Grand Puissance. Still, 14-rounds of .380 ACP can hardly be considered unsubstantial defensive firepower.

Securing holsters for this pistol has been hit-and-miss; some holsters designed to fit this pistol really are marginal at best while other holsters intended for use with other pistols worked out well for use with the Cheetah.  It may take some time, but I'll put together a good kit of holsters for this pistol.  To see if the size and weight of the Cheetah was tolerable for me to use with the narrow straps of a Null SMZ shoulder holster I simply carried it for two weeks in a SMZ holster sized for a Colt D-frame revolver. There was plenty of sloppy space between the holster and the slide and frame of the pistol, but the pistol was secure and the draw-stroke was surprisingly 100% functional.  After a favorable trial period with the Cheetah in the revolver SMZ,  I gave Null Holsters a call.  I ordered the new holster last Wednesday and it arrived on Monday morning; lightning service is typical when dealing with Ken Null.

Ken wasn't quite sure about this one when I placed the order; he didn't have that model gun (or dummy) in his collection.  Still, I never doubted for a moment.  On the packing slip he wrote that he was confident that he got it right but if I found otherwise I was to simply ship it back. Heck, I worked with the gun and holster for several hours and found the fit and function to be just fine and dandy; I even had enough confidence to wear it to dinner at one of the finer local restaurants last night.  I have worn the rig all day today and intend on giving it an indefinite run.  It looks to be winner, but I expected no less.
