Dear Joan puts it down in plain language. Nicely done…

And then there is the matter of True Colors Showing in Honduras commentary. (H/T to a new favorite…) Perhaps best coverage here. Do I see it as a sort of preview of the future? Somewhat, yes.

A fine quote below found here…it was what I thought life was for quite some time because I was keeping to my own knitting and just assumed that is what everyone else was doing. I was rather surprised to find out just how wrong I was. I believe I was 16 at the time.

“One reason for this situation is that “We the People,” who are supposed to
monitor our government, are 300 million individuals, each evolved to be able to
digest only a tiny fraction of the knowledge necessary to keep such a huge
society working. In the free market, when each of us sticks to our own knitting,
prices and competition weave our efforts together into a remarkably productive
whole that is no part of anyone’s intention.

But when We the People try to plan large swathes of society consciously, we
succumb to what Hayek called “the fatal conceit.” We simply are not mentally
equipped to govern society with the same effectiveness, subtlety, and prudence
that each of us is evolved to bring to the governance of our own personal
affairs. So it’s no surprise that governments with vast powers routinely behave
stupidly: they are attempting to do the impossible while being overseen by the
ill-informed.” Sincerely,Donald J.

In other news…we’ve met some interesting people lately, not on the net, and it has proven quite beneficial. On deck is a lovely S&W the hubby wants to buy for me to replace my knockoff 9mm. It is a M&P version so no safety, has interchangable grips so there is a small one for my stubby mitts. I am 95% sold on it – we’ll see if we can hit the range with it in the next few days to make a final decision. And then we can start looking at holster styles. With my gimpy shoulders, I am thinking about a cross-draw type but…that leg drop thing is so damn sexy. And I BET it would work under some floaty skirts, too. Hmmm…

At any rate, it’s gear time and I like it. I like it a lot.

  1. Hell, coming from you that is quite the recommendation! I think I'd better tell the hubby to add it to the insurance policy. Thx!!

    Any tips, tricks, info you can add to aid me as a new owner of that model?

  2. The earlier M+P compacts had a problem with the magazine latch. It's engagement area was pretty thin and with wear mags would begin to drop unexpectedly. I sent mine back for a factory fix… that kinda worked. Ended up making my own fix…. cost me about 50 cents and an hours time.

    My suggestion… if you buy a compact model, just make sure it's a new build, and not one of the first ones.

    If I had to do it all over again, I would probably buy the full size model, as I'm a big guy and could easily conceal it. That said, I wouldn't trade off this compact 9mm now. It carries easily and in a Galco JAK holster I forget I'm wearing it.

    The finish seems almost impervious to sweat and rain. The only thing I have found rust on is the rear sight, and only just a tiny bit one time.

    Other than that… what's to say about them? They are dirt simple to operate and seem to work every time. Just the features I want in a defensive weapon.

  3. Holsters, holsters, holsters…I love'em and hate'em. Cheap ones are expensive in subtle ways usually involving discomfort and damage to skin or weapon. Expensive ones are problematic because if you pay that much you worry you'll be disappointed.

    I love Kramer products for quality, comfort and workmanship. Got a couple for 1911's and my Sig 228. Friend of mine swears by Mitch Rosen, but he's usually badly backordered. Recently encountered a nice Kydex/leather IWB for small frame auto from Crossbreed Holsters and got a pocket pouch from Galco that is beautiful. Galco catalog shows lots of cool leather stuff as well.

    Simply Google holsters and spend an afternoon drooling.
