Fat Tuesday


And, yeah, part of me wishes I was down there celebrating whatever. In truth, my Sweetie and I have reservations at a faux-Cajun place it ain't love, but it ain't bad; besides, the beer is good in Boulder tonight. I could use a big ole plate full of the barbecued shrimp from Pascal's Manale in uptown N'awlins, not far from Ann Rice's big digs, but I'll be happy with what I got, and I refuse to wear a mask anyway.

In the meanwhile, if I was in N'awling, I definitely be sporting my new flamed 1911 holster from David Brown. It is just TOO COOL FOR SKOOL, and I think you'll be seeing it on the Single Stack Classic episode of SG, along with the slick new SIG GSR Revolution two-tone blaster.

I swear, the flames alone will take a couple of seconds off each run, because, as we all know, cars WITH racing stripes are faster than cars WITHOUT racing stripes!

I only hope I can get the mag pouches in time...my reloads could use some work!

Michael, did you in an earlier life drive cars so adorned? Some bad taste is kitschy. Some is just...well...puzzling.

I see it as a red holster with black goo dripping down -- kwite kewl, I should think, compared with the other interpretation.

Ah Sweeney...you gotta always push the edges...it's the nature of things...

What if J. M. Browning had been satisfied with the 1903? Or heaven forbid, been content to shoot his .38/40 S.A.A. at jackrabbbits back home in Utah?

Black guns are boring. By extension, so are black holsters. I sent a note to Tim Wegner at Blade-tech yesterday requesting bright yellow SHOOTING GALLERY Blade-techs. Strangely, Tim has yet to respond...


BTW, I'm getting a suppressed gun from Tactical Solutions pretty soon...hopefully iin candy-cane purple!

PS: Actually, in my career as a street racer Back in the Day, my car was 100% stealth — a 1968 Mercury Cougar, Britist racing green and spec'ed with NO special emblems or markings...it was one of the semi-legendary Ford factory racers...with a 390 cubic inch engine, 2 four-barrel carbs with a progressive linkage, a special overdrive heavy-duty transmission, special suspension, rear end, etc. and a custom exhaust system that fed out through the stock set-up in the rear. It was, to borrow a phrase from the Old Wets gunfighters, "Sudden." I miss it.

Make that "West." Or maybe "Wets" sums it up better...
