    Richard, Buzz, thx for encouragement.

    One very good thing where we live is that tracking us is and would be very hard to do. Our road is very quiet and people soon notice anything strange, like a vehicle parked up where it would not be expected. Out back is acres of corn field - I can monitor that easily, even with night vision if needed!

    Matter of fact it is my dear wife who is carrying a lot of this - one reason I nag her to keep her carry purse close by. She had the day off today and went out this morning before I left but aborted her grocery shopping mission because of feeling uneasy at the house being empty.

    A break-in is probably the main thing we are concerned about but the way things are going, even tho these punk are still juveniles, it may not be long before they get picked. One of them stole a revo it seems and that could well be enough to see them taken down sooner rather than later.

    Have to be careful to avoid paranoia and just up the alertness level - plus I gave Mrs P95 a reminder run thru with the 870 operation!!

    the-fly, IMO-you gave the response that most of my students would give after I "get finished" with them. I call it resolve. We gotta have resolve !! When the line is crossed,any other response from us and we die.--------

    Chris,
    You know my position on these matters. You have my phone and email, some stuff some lurkers need not be reading.

    Perceptions:

    One never knows what may fall into illegal ears.

    A child may say " yeah, my grandparents got money" to another kid in a grocery store. The child may only mean grandparents bought her a kids meal earlier, can change a dollar for the gumball machine, let her have a $2 toy , a candy bar...in the child's mind - the child's perception - this is a lot of money to them.

    Punk kid, overhears "lot of money" and "grandparents". Punk's perceptions are easy prey and money for whatever illegal activity needing fed.

    Chris, we have shared some things before. Blame me when the wife does not want to train with you, do walk-thrus, beef up security - anything.

    I'm used to this "blame it on Steve".

    Give me time.
    I have not tried really hard - yet.

    When your grandkids show you the shiny catalogs with the real nice 28 ga shotguns that their 'adopted uncle' sent them - you'll know.

    There is a reason I get homemade maple syrup, fresh canned goods, homemade salsa and other goodies sent to me.

    These folks have have kids/ grandkids. They themselves have become victims of mine. One idiot wants to meet again in Tulsa...where he got his first 28 ga. He has a second one, because I warned his wife she too would be a victim of mine.

    I like this bribery, blackmail bit. I get all sorts of stuff to NOT send the kids/ grandkids shiny catalogs with 28 ga shotguns.

    Your time will come. You too will be a member of the "Blame Steve Club".

    Did I ever mention I really really like the Dutch Apple pies the Amish up your way make? Oh...don't forget the fresh sweet corn.

    Keep up the good work Steve - it'll happen yet! LOL!

    I know the apple pies can be good up here but IIRC - you are a master at those yourself.
