    Keep or sell the .380s?

    When KelTec first started manufacturing the .32 and .380 Mo HWY Patrol were issued first the .32 then later the .380. This was about the time Missouri started issuing Concealed Carry permits. I was considering buying one of the first versions of the .380 KT. I asked a Mo State Trooper friend of mine if they had any history with the .380. He said he had worked 3 homocides that were results of people being shot with .380. 2 of them were one shot kills and the third had a magazine dump into him. If shooter does his part I think the .380 will be plenty. I like the CM 9 Kahr personally but when I can’t carry the Kahr the KT .380 tags along.

    Small propane heaters

    If you are in an enclosed blind it may warm the space. I have used a heater that appears to produce more BTU’s than the one in picture and it sat on a 20 lb LP bottle like Bersa mentioned. The blind I was in had open area to shoot and the heater was a good hand warmer but didn’t warm blind much.

    IWB tuckable and printing

    Pleated khaki pants don’t print as bad as plain.

    It’s snowing

    Sikeston, Mo and Dexter got approximately 7- 8” of dry snow yesterday and last night. MoDot has I-55 almost clear from St Louis to Arkansas line. KFVS tv at Cape Girardeau forecast 1-2” of snow for that one but front stalled over SEMO and apparently West KY and NW TN.

    Church security

    Pastors or other leaders (deacons, etc) can authorize carry in Missouri Churches. It is not a criminal offense in MO to carry without permission in Churches. Misdemeanor.

    Do you carry cash?

    I carry cash and use CC for gas, etc but feel broke if I don’t have several benjies in my wallet. Some places here in Sikeston don’t take plastic like Lambert’s and local gun shop. Lambert’s have an ATM if customers need it.

    holster advice

    I have 3 of Kevin Manley holsters dba K & D Holsters but if I remember correctly he had health problems and shut down business around 2009 approximately.

    Going to pour a concrete shooting bench tomorrow

    Speedcrete (patch) can be used to fill in the imperfections but will be noticeable. If you have someone that makes Concrete pipe in the area they should have some available. I would pour another and use no more than 3" slump with 7.5 bag of cement/yd. 6" slump reduces the strength a lot. Rent or buy a vibratory that can be clamped to frame to consolidate the concrete rather than a stick vibrator.

    NRA carry Guard?

    Thanks Chances that chart puts it in perspective. I will pass on NRA CG unless they come up with something better down the road.
  15. Has any TGO members signed up for the NRA carry guard insurance? I am interested in your opinions. Spouses coverage is included in price.
