Spring Break starts today!

I hope to get to the range at least a couple times next week!

A little over a month until our training down in Culpeper and then I have to wait until September for the Cornered Cat training!

My new baby

This little girl is named Kimber.  She is the one from our recent litter that I decided to keep.  That is her momma next to her.  They were enjoying themselves in the open window yesterday evening.

I sometimes feel that bringing up even the word holsters can open a can of worms!

Everyone has their favorite type and brand.  Which is great because it gives us all options, but can be confusing and expensive when you try and find the "one" for you!

I have a total of three holsters.  The paddle one that came with my gun, my Remora, and one from Old Faithful Holsters.

I will admit that I have been relying on my remora and have not "broken in" my old faithful.  I need to since I am going to my first training course in May and then another in September.  Both of those courses will need me to have a holster that is securely attached to my belt.  I also need to look into some extra mag holders.

Now back to how I started this husband is a die-hard Galco fan and wants me to order one from there.  I am no opposed to a new holster, but I am trying to explain to him that I would like a chance to break in my other one before I spend money on a Galco that could very well go towards more ammo or extra magazines.

What are your thoughts on holsters?  I welcome any and all comments and suggestions!

Ten days til Hunger Games!

Just had to share!

Bought our tickets to the midnight showing next week!  I love stories where the girl does not wait around for some guy to save her, but kicks axx for herself!

A Day Out Shooting

Got to go out to a person's property today to shoot.  Ranges are nice, but there is nothing like the freedom of open fields:

Plus, DH bought youngest son his own rifle.  He is a very happy camper!

Busy week!

I have not had much time to sit and think, much less write out a blog post. LOL

I do have to say that reading this article has got me in a very irritable mood!

Miller:  D.C.'s crime solution:  Be a victim

I have been reading Emily Miller's articles about what she has had to go through to own a gun in the District with great interest.  I am just an hour outside of D.C. and have to make sure I never cross over into D.C. when going anywhere since that would be illegal.

The fact that the District's deputy mayor for public safety and justice would say that you should just give in to a criminal is mind boggling!  How dare he say that I should just allow myself to be victimized!  I understand that possessions are not worth my life, but I will be darned if I will allow some low-life scumbag to take my hard earn possessions without some kind of resistance!

I am so tired of the criminal becoming the victim in this country.  To borrow a phrase from our friend Weer'd World:

"Carry Your Damn Guns!"
