Well, it is hard to part with things, but when it gets to the point that you have nowhere to put it all, it's time to do something!

My son and I went to the shooting range today.  I got to try out my Ruger LC9 and LCP.  My son mostly shot my SIG P226.  Both Rugers shot very well once you get used to the semi-double action trigger pull.  The hammer is partially cocked when the slide is cycled.  I found that I can't use Hornady Critical Duty in the LC9 (while carrying) at this time.  The sharp end of the round caught a couple of times on the feed ramp.  I am going to polish the ramp and try again.  It shoots fine with more rounded end bullets.  Hornady's Critical Duty shoots fine in my SIGs and Hornady's .380 Critical Defense shoots fine in the LCP.   I will feel comfortable carrying either of these guns.  I bought them because the smaller SIG P239 I have is still pretty heavy and bulky for concealed carry.  Recoil is more noticeable in these small guns but were not painful. Personal Observations/Opinions:While we were there, there were three couples and one lone woman shooting.  From the discussions, it appears that most of the women were just starting or still learning to shoot.  While I think it is absolutely great that more women are learning how to shoot, but they need to be careful on who they get to teach them.  Your husband or boyfriend may not be the best choice.  One lady was obviously just learning to shoot and the guy that was with her keep telling her to "hurry.... a guy could be running at you right now."  Adding that kind  of pressure to a novice shooter is not only unnecessary, I feel it is detrimental to them developing their skills and abilities.  Also, every woman was shooting at silhouette targets.  When anyone is just learning to shoot a gun, they should shoot at bullseye targets ONLY so they can get the process of holding the gun, lining up the sights, squeezing the trigger, and recovering from the recoil.  Silhouette targets are simply too big of a target to get you to focus on the target. Only after a shooter has become VERY comfortable with those basics and doing well hitting the bullseyes should they move on to silhouette targets.  After a person has become reasonably skilled with their handgun, they can then practice quicker shooting at silhouettes.  That's my 2 cents worth.



@Retired_Engineer:

This was long as hell but, damn it! Guns just keep my intrest longer than some noob in an airport.


Good story.

It is beyond ridiculous that both our options for internet in Kingwood are so terrible. 

Come on Google Fiber! Save us all!

I always have my days and nights screwed up when my daughter is out of school for the summer. We stay up way too late, and sleep way too late. Hubby gets up for work at 4:00, and we are usually still up! At least we've been productive. We got a couple of rooms painted and went through a bunch of things we had stored and got rid of more than half of it.



@attila:

I am impressed! I could use some words of encouragement. I have such trouble parting with things.

The policy is that they will give a refund if returned within 15 days.  The OP simply missed that deadline.  In that case, the policy is to give a store credit.  He didn't have to replace the item with the same item that he was unhappy with.  He could have used that store credit toward a different brand of the same product, or something completely different altogether.  This really is not a new concept.  Stores have been doing this for years.  Granted, the refund period is usually 30 days, but many stores are going to the shorter time limit for refund.  So.... you buy something, you are aware of the return policy, and you make your decision based on that timeframe.

She is in a great area of town to seek employment or volunteer work.  I know the City of Humble pound is always looking for people to help them as well.  Might get ahold of Volunteers for Animal protection too, they are located off 494.  

Best wishes to her!

@Donnatella & @bp2018:
I think we can make it around 7pm. As a matter of fact, I was just pointing out to @Mtechnique that we never actually celebrated my birthday last weekend because we were busy having an early birthday get-together for my DD before she leaves town. So, he suggested that I plan a meet-up this weekend. Then I looked at the board and found this invite. Yay! I hope there's a big turnout!



@Mahm:
Yay! Good timing then lol. Is MTechnique gonna be the designated driver? Or should I pick y'all both up :P

I think we worked it out to be about $3000.



@EllaMentry: I keep seeing the prices going up,   I know i would buy a carton every week and a half or so and Ella every couple weeks, maybe a bit longer.



@Murf:

I bet you two have unwittingly helped a LOT of people on their journeys to wellness and kicking this habit with your stories/thoughts/resources here. Especially that you did it successfully together...what an amazing incentive for the right couple! That's just awesome! Kudos to you both...sincerely!

:clap:



@brightlights: Well thanks :)    It just blew me away all the things he kept bringing up in the book, I would read a statement and think 'well holy crap, of course, how did I not see that?'  I am an intelligent person, but for some idiotic reason I was letting myself believe all this BS when it is obviously not true, none of it.I heard an ad for the patch the other day,  '50% mroe likely to quit smoking.  Now, you may thinking that they are using that as a way to tout how good their patch is,    but what they are actually saying, is, 'smoking is SO HARD to kick, that this patch gives you a 50% better chance to quit' SO even the  stop smoking aids are perpetuating the myth that is a hard habit to kick.



@Murf:

Mind over matter! :)

Good job.
