Hey guys! Long time no see.
I know it's been a long, long time since I've posted here. I've been very busy over the past few years. I see some familiar faces here, and lots of new ones. I'm really happy to see how the forum has expanded since I "retired." QKShooter gave me a little smack upside the head, so here I am.
Let's see here. Got married, moved to a bigger house, multiplied a couple times, and am now enjoying being a mom. My oldest is three years old now, and while he's still too little to shoot, he knows he's not allowed to touch guns (not that I leave any out for him to touch) and is a smart little guy. He knows exactly why mommy carries a gun, and he says, "When I get bigger you can teach me." His little sister is only 9 months old, but I can tell she is going to run circles around him. I've decided she is going to be a ninja. Girls have to be these days.
My EDC now is a Colt Cobra. I work from home, so I need something light and out of the way, because I'm constantly on the floor, playing with the kids or picking up crumbs. The grips are heavily modified from the originals. I reduced the width and rounded them off nicely on a table sander. They fit my hands perfectly. The Cobra gets holstered in a Desantis "The Insider" at 2 o'clock. Very comfortable, and nobody sees it when I have to reach over. It gets paired with a Spyderco Manix II.
So hello everybody, great to see you again, and I will be around more.

Welcome back Betty. Congrats on the marriage and the little ones.

Man, Betty must be pretty cool if SIXTO comes in from the cold to say hi.
Hi Betty. Nice to I-meet you.
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

Do you folks remember that Betty had pet giant Tarantulas?
Did she have one or two?
My memory is not too very keen when it comes to giant hairy spiders that can shoot sharp irritating barbs out of their arses when they get ticked off.
