Looking for a new Upper

Here is basically the upper I am looking for. I have had to admit to myself that I have a suppressor habit. I can stop any time I want!! It's a 10 in SBR with a dedicated can.

Yes, I know that suppressors on AR15s don't make them silent. It takes the edge way off to the point you can shoot without hearing protection.

--Still worth the hush.

The new daily carry

The new Glock 26 is a great form factor for me.

Here are the two holsters I have tried so for.

I am in the market for another.

I like the wide single clip of the one holster, but I also like the hard side holster because it does not collapse, making re-holstering difficult.

--Do you have a favorite?

Guns in Fiction

I read another novel this week written by someone that did not know anything about guns.


Glocks don't have thumb safeties kind of mistakes. Clips vs Mags verbiage kind of things.

I am working on the outline for my 5th novel. It is Scifi but will take place in 2016 in Richmond VA. One of the main characters will carry a Beretta 92FS. The descriptions of the gun, it's utility, and why she carries it will all be detailed. There will be suppressed .300 Blackout AR-15s in the story and other guns.

All will get the details right. (I Hope) Mostly because I own them...

In the mean time, read these! Click the image!



The wife and I had dinner with friends last night. They are recent transplants from New England.

Conversation eventually turned to good places to go shooting. He had been to the range at NRA HQ so far.

We told them all about Elite Shooting Sports in Manassas VA. We also discussed Bull Run Shooting Center.

I love living in Virginia where they remember what freedom is like...

--Some couples go bowling.

Random Friday

Day number 11 of the heat wave. Only 93 degrees today.

I am wearing a Hawaiian shirt.

Another Metro derailment. Sheesh.

And another elevator cable broke in the Washington Monument. DC sucks at maintenance.

Gun content is thin this week. I am still lovin the Glock 26 for concealed carry.

After being on vacation for two weeks I am really enjoying my King Bed!

Blogger keeps crashing!

--Happy Friday Humans!

I love this!

Everyone should read Clinton Cash.

It is currently NUMBER ONE on the New York Times bestseller list! 

Peter Schweizer presents a graphic novel adaptation of Clinton Cash, the breathtaking expose of Bill and Hillary Clinton's money trail. From their personal fortune to their "close personal friends" to the shady Clinton Foundation, this is the story of the most corrupt presidential candidate ever.

--Corrupt, horrible, people...

Back from Vacation

Normal operations will resume today. I may go to the range tonight to shoot the new Glock 26.

Here is a quick reminder that the entire Solstice 31 Saga is now available! Don't forget to write honest reviews!
