Range Time

Recommended Posts

My wife and I got out for a little range time yesterday afternoon. I tried her out on an MP 9MM EZ and she could not rack the slide. Still taught her how to shoot my MP 9C 2.0 and let her run 30 rounds through it. She has a SW model 65 Ladysmith 3" she calls her house gun. Keeps it in her walk-in closet. I replaced it with my new SW 686 + which is a 7 shot instead of her 6 shot Ladysmith. She shot it well also. She was in favor of the switch. I figured they are both 3" brls and the same size however the 686 has one more round to use if needed. I am a fan of all the rounds one can manage. Why I like my MP's, as they are 15 rounds in the mag and one in the pipe.

Came back in the house and had wife to read 4 stories, in a book, "Guns Save Lives" written by Robert A Waters, about actual home invasions. Tried to impress her when someone comes in your house, uninvited, and knowing your home, they are not coming for "tea and crumpets". The stories spoke for themselves. All 4 showed that rape is not about the sex totally. It is about total, sometimes/most times, brutal dominance with a capitol B. My intention was for working on her mindset. Every chance I get I take her out to my back yard range. We both need our practice as I see my skills diminishing with age. Hers seem to be getting better. 

Got some bad news. I tested positive for Coved yesterday. Am scheduled for shoulder surgery on Monday but will need to postpone and reschedule that.  Not feeling too bad just a nagging hack and funny head. Not too much congestion, "Yet!" Did not take the last coved booster. Had the first 3 shots. Life happens guys. 

You guys have a blessed day.
