The past several times I’ve worn my X D, when I take it off at night the magazine has popped out of the well. Do you think this is because 1) the holster has worn out (a blackhawk–sorry, BLACKHAWK! leather jobby that seems to still be in good condition, but, needless to say, I haven’t carried it very much since this problem developed or 2) the spring to the magazine release has worn out (even though it seems to be in good condition too)? I love that little X D (first gun syndrome, probably) but this issue is concerning.
Really, the reason I ask is because I’m thinking of doing an order for a new holster and belt for the GP100, so if I was going to do that I might as well throw in another $100 for another holster, right?
With bonus camouflage dog!
The most telling fact I have about gun ownership in MT is that my super wacky liberal environmentalist sociology professor was also an avid hunter (and gun owner).
I think it’s going to take more than one can of WD40 to get this guy up and running again.
“[…]I had a conversation in which I joked that the ideal real-world general purpose rifle was a Glock 19 – that is, after all, all the modern man is ever likely to need to survive in the concrete jungles of the American coastal megalopoleis, and heartland waystation-towns alike. The irony of the Scout Rifle is that it’s a late 20th century weapon designed for the 19th; a sort of modernist homage to the romance the post-war generations have had with Brand’s Old West, Kipling’s India, and Conrad’s Africa.”
–Nathaniel F, from The Firearm Blog
I can’t find any fault in that line of explanation, but that doesn’t stop me from being a romantic about the desire for a scout rifle anyway!

Cabela’s had one tiny box of .22 Short blanks, and two small boxes of .22 Long shot shells. Still more rimfire than I’ve seen in a year.
I upgraded my Reading Rainbow kickstarter to 10 bucks from 5, so I could get some stickers. To upgrade my Camouflage, of course.

Because Butch did it and I haven’t done it in a long time.

Bloomberg apparently doesn’t even know how to read a nap. COLORADO SPRINGS doesn’t have ROADS according to him. The are not enough face palm pictures to show how hard I am face palming right now.
Something we found at grandpa’s, probably from his dad. According to the internet, they were made from 1880-1910. This one has been shot to hell and halfway back; doesn’t lock up tight at all and, well, notice the homemade hammer–great grandad was a Kansas blacksmith and I’m sure he made it himself.
Camaro in background for scale.
Hickenlooper just proved he is either too stupid or too evil to lead. In case there was any doubt.
Sorry? Fuck you with a rusty fork.
