She's still having all kinds of trouble with her birdshead Ruger .32s...they're hanging up as if there's a high primer, but the ammo is fine. Hopefully we'll get it sorted out, because it's a sweet set of guns to shoot.
We took the new Ruger to the range today, and it clocked pretty much rave reviews. It safe to say, I suppose, that the gun is a revolver and it is a single action. A nice gun!
Then we went to a Christmas party in the People's Republic of Boulder...I was sort of reminded of Ann Coulter's book HOW TO TALK TO A LIBERAL (If You Must). A bunch of people at the party are friends of my Sweetie and I, but it's hard to navigate a room full of liberals...we no longer have a set of shared assumptions. Example: a couple of people were talking about how exciting it was that America was finally moving toward socialism, "even though most people are too stupid to know it's socialism!" Wow! What could be more exciting? Socialism! It's worked so well everywhere else! Michael had to leave.
BTW, I've been meaning to mention that my friend Dave Skinner at STI International is pressing ahead with all sorts of cool stuff. I like the looks of the new Apeiro, even though the name sounds like a small, featureless Ford coupe. It's a continuation of their 2011 modular steel frame/polymer grip series guns. Dave also announced STI wold be rolling out a bunch of goodies for SHOT...from his most recent SkinnerGram:
Well, I told you I'd drop a couple hints about new product in the period leading up to SHOT, so here goes: Look for an "Officer's" size 1911 even smaller than the "Escort"? How ‘bout a "Ladies Gun"? Anybody up for a "2011" even smaller than the "VIP"? Accessories for the rifles? Smaller calibers of the GP6? Maybe a DAO, shorter version of the GP6? Shorter SA/DA version? That's not all we have up our sleeve but it ought to be enough "bait" for the moment!I'm particularly interested in the 2011 smaller than the VIP. I've always liked the VIP...
