WHEW! Tired, But a Great Day!

Spent the day with my friends at Lipsey's in Baton Rouge. Great folks and friends for many years. and they have some really great guns. That Sig 220 SAO in 10mm calls out to me. And the food!!!!


Mr. Knee is tired, but it did okay today. I think I walked about 100 miles across the Houston Airport.

One of my biggest problems with writing script for GUN STORIES is I get caught up in the gun's story. This is by way of explaining why I'd going to buy a Desert Eagle in .50 AE. I  think I'm going to use it to stalk and slay steam powered locomotives...or perhaps that giant Corporate-Billboard-O-Saurus in the last JURASIC PARK movie. I'm pretty sure it'd be hell on rabbits.

If I think of everything I have to do between now and the end of May, I might go into seizures.

You are a bad apple, Mr. Bane. Worse than my best friends.

Well its Saturday afternoon on the East Coast. Lovely bright sunny day in the 60's and even 70's. But what is it doing in Colorado? One guess... BLIZZARD TIME ! I guess that there is some sort of evil curse over the state. Thinking that you will never be able to film that Mass Casualty Event....

Actually, it's a half-ass blizzard…snowing, byt nothing to speak of…of course, I may feel differently in the AM!

And while we ponder everything else that we ponder, there's this cool article:

I wonder where the "AR" rack is.

The other IMPORTANT point is that Magpul moved out of an "oppressive state", and moved to a "free state". And Ruger and S&W also make parts that are found in many other assemblies other than guns. Those "Bitter-Clingers"!

If I recall, didn't you mention something in a recent podcast about carrying 2 guns; one a semi for social purposes & the other a revolver for 4 legged problems? Being the laz - er, efficient sort that I is, I couldn't help but think, "why not just carry a 10mm and a spare mag of solids?" I'm happy with my Witnesses but that Sig looks like a nice idea. Pricey, but nice.

Also, Clement does a 10mm conversion of Ruger GP100's. I'm not a revolver person (nothing against them, just never had the chance to indulge) but I keep trying to talk myself into it because it'd not complicate logistics at the homestead.

If someone would just come out with a wood stocked 10mm carbine for under $600-ish...

Funny thing about living around here - at times you'll go to bed thinking you're in Colorado but open the door the next day & realize you're on Hoth.

I have a 6 1/2" Smith and Wesson model 610. That's an "N"-framed revolver chambered in 10mm and made of stainless steel. It is equipped with factory installed adjustable target sights. Mine is the original offering and has the hammer-mounted firing pin and fluted cylinder. Later on, S&W also made a 5" model and another in 6 1/2", both with the up-dated floating firing pin and un-fluted cylinders.

My 610 is the most accurate handgun that I own. It also has the best trigger. It shoots any brand ammo' to the same point-of-aim laterally. Only trajectory is affected by bullet weight. The gun groups quarter-sized groups at 25 yards.

If you want a good all-around handgun, look around for one of these. When you barter for it, remind the seller how unpopular the caliber is and how hard it is to find ammo' and that the gun isn't made any more and well, no one will really want it anyhow. Then make you dirt-cheap bid. ; )

Actually guns are really concerned about their safety and safety experiences may take help from the firearms safety training classes and proper gun licensing to have these amazing guns for safeguarding themselves and all. This can also help us all in maintaining law and order in the place.
