    The wonderful women in my life

    Last week I flew from Arizona to Kansas to visit my parents for a week and finish up some chores on the farm for them before the snow flys. My 23 year old daughter and her boyfriend managed to come over twice to help put siding on the garage and to go shooting.

    I started my daughter shooting when she was about 5 years old using a Ruger single action .22 revolver with CB shorts. She took to it like a duck to water She was a hubcap's worst nightmare at 30 feet with that pistol. Now, at 23, it is still her favorite pistol. She also shoots my SKS and can kick butt on a 5 gallon pail at 100 yards w/ open sights.

    But my favorite moment was when we were shooting the handguns. I let her try a .380, 9mm, and a .45 Colt 1911 and Sig P220 .45ACP. After she shot all 4 guns, I asked her what she liked the best. She said the .380 was fun, but too small for her hand. She liked the 9mm, but it just felt too wimpy. Her favorite pistol that she shot over and over again was the Colt .45. Now she is shopping for her own .45.

    When I got back home, my wife picked me up at the airport. We still had a bunch of shopping and eating to do before our 1 1/2 hour drive home. When we got my suitcase loaded in the truck, she said "Here, I brought you a goody bag." I looked in the bag and she had brought me my SA MilSpec 1911, spare mag and holder, my Leatherman in the holder, and my Benchmade Griptillian. I love this woman.

    What a wonderful ending to a great trip.

    Life is good! You've obviously made many good decisions on the road. Many should envy you.

    Having shot Tuesday Night Steel for the first time in 9 months tonight, I have to say that the PANG-PANG of the .45 vs. the Ping-Ping of the 9mm my buddy was shooting was an significant audible difference.
