    Got to spend a couple hours in the ship today. I've been wanting to stipple my carry piece for a while now and finally decided to do it. Took a few hours. So far I am pleased. Messed up the area around the finger grooves a bit but I'm not bothered. I scalloped the area behind the mag release and am happy with that. Gives me just a little extra purchase without having to go with extended controls. Also undercut the trigger guard a bit. Gun fits in my hand a bit better now.

    I've been re-watching Bond movies lately. They're awesome to have on when I'm fake internet working.
    And...it's made me want....















    (wait for it)









    A 43 with a threaded barrel and K can.

    Because it's just better than the PPK/S and what Bond should carry if he wants a baby gun. (note: I'm not sold on the p365 despite it's obvious advantage)

    Also....man movie magic is weird. The thing that's been hitting me lately...just how often he takes the silencer off (or "reholsters" inside his jacket) immediately after firing a handful of rounds. I'm pretty sure that means they're using just about complete barrel blocks for their blank firing guns so no gas actually enters the silencer. It's a very different experience shooting one IRL.

    So, Mrs Fox told me that I could buy a gun last weekend. We went and looked at a few and I narrowed it down to either a Glock 26 or 43. And the winner was....



    Neither. I decided I was perfectly happy with the pistols I have, each fills a designated niche and I shoot all of them well. Guess I’m getting old.

    Springfield Loaded Lightweight Operator, Taurus Judge, Springfield XD 9 and Sig Sauer P238. These are my EDC handguns. No, I do not carry all of them at the same time. The .45acp is almost always an open carry weapon, the xd is both open and concealed carry, the Judge for wandering around in the desert. .410 000Buck makes for good 'snake shot' if you just can't get around, and they won't move' situation. It also works on the two-legged snake variety as well. The Sig is always concealed carry and depending on the day, situation, location, etc, it is either a main carry or a backup piece.
