Travel Day

I'm headed to Las Vegas today for work. 

TSA lines at 5:30am were an hour deep. 

I am entering this post from the gate as there is two hours until my flight.

The NRA Annual Meeting begins today. I wish I could have carved out time for it this year.

If you are there and see good stuff send photos!


Suppressor Threads

I saw this Silencer Thread Reference on Facebook this week. I could have used this simple guide years ago.

One thing I would like tp point out is that typical .22 and 9mm barrels are threaded the same.

I knew this already as my 9mm can fits nicely on my Savage .22 bolt action rifle.

The caution is that a .22 suppressor could be screwed onto a 9mm.

--That would not be good...

Fav Glocks

Coming up dry and running late on a Monday.

A friend asked me about my suppressed Glocks. He asked which one was my favorite?

It was an unfair question. My Glock 17 and 21 are both configured the same. It's like asking which child you love more.

I'll say this: My Glock 21 is also a registered as an SBR.

--Just sayin...

Random Friday

Coffee. Need Coffee.

My daughter graduates from college tomorrow. Never got anything but an A. She already has a real job, a living wage,moving into a bigger apartment. She has NO STUDENT LOANS. She wants to flip houses on the weekends. I take full credit for rising her right!

I have a series of doctor appointments coming up. I wonder if they will ask about my guns?

Who are these crazy people doing cellphone videos of tornadoes?

I have seen a lot of cool animations of gun functions. Makes a lot of things clear.

Lots of good stuff happening on the book writing front. The Broken Cage is doing great on Audible! My next novel is soooo close to release. Plus I am writing my next novel!

Sixteen straight days of rain. At least the lawn is green.

--Off to work. Happy Friday!



Gun Dreams

It has been a while since I've had a dream about guns.

I was moving through the night in a leap frogging escape and evade kind of thing with two other people.

I realized eventually that the other two were women. We all had tactical vests and light packs.

The other two carried AR15s on single point slings. I was carrying my Saiga 12 gauge with the 30 round drum. I remember thinking that I was surprised it was not heavy. I must have been a younger, stronger version of me.

We were moving through an overgrown, ruin of a cemetery. Cemeteries and ruins always play in my dreams. We knew where we were going. We could hear voices in the woods of people that were outside the fence.

We entered a large mausoleum. Once inside we closed the door and it was complete darkness. We activated tac lights on the AR15s and went down a wide set of marble stairs that led to a vast shelter...

--Then I woke up. I guess I need a light on my AR.

Fools

What asswipes like this do not realize is that guns are not made to murder people, they are made to defend people. It is why the police carry them. It is why people carry them. Over 300,000,000 guns were not used to murder anyone yesterday.
