Enough of this pandering to the distaff side. Yesterday afternoon I spent a happy

hour at the town range. Tried some 357 magnum rounds in my S&W 38. The

recoil nearly broke my wrist. What are those things FOR? To stop a

charging rhino? Note on range psychology. It’s a very hot day here & I

drove to the range with my windows open. Pulled into the parking lot, got

my guns, shut car door, and left it unlocked with windows open. There are

very, very few places I would do this–can’t think of any others, in fact.

(The parking lot is out of sight from the firing points.) Why don’t I

bother to lock my car at the range? I guess I trust gun people. OK, you

can all go back to discussing needlepoint, or whatever.
