    One of the Three new adoptees has arrived.. Let's welcome him home!

    Yesterday, with joyful faces and proud hearts, we welcomed into the family yet another 1911.

    I would like to introduce you to Kimber Ultra CDP. He eats (and spits out) .45s. After a thorough functionality check he went on his first visit to the range.

    He performed flawlessly. The best you could ever expect from a 1911 which makes him much cherished by his mother.

    After returning home he got the cleaning of his lifetime (probably) and it was found he was a little dehydrated, but he's back at full performance and eagerly awaiting his next visit out to the range. He will also accompany his mother everywhere and provide her protection (what a devoted boy).

    He's going to get a few upgrades in the next couple of weeks. I'm going to change out his plastic mainspring housing for a steel one. He also needs a new slide stop plunger. Eventually he'll get slim-line rubber grips and perhaps a few more magazines. His tritium night sights are a little on the dull side and sooner than later he'll get a fresh pair of those, but other than that he's in perfect, flawless working order. He may also trade that ambi-safey for a traditional one but that's low on the list of changes. I'm sure he'll be happy and well cared for in his new home.





    He got to meet another new member of the family last night but I'll let the proud father introduce you to him, and we are all eagerly awaiting the call that says the Sig is in the state and ready to come home.

    Nope, the .40 is still at the 'smith and I'll be keeping the .40. I decided I wanted a good, high caliber, concealable gun that I could always have as a backup should something happen to my primary.

    I've been without my primary for two months now and with each week that passed I felt more and more uncomfortable carrying a .380 backup gun. There's nothing wrong with it, but I wanted my superior firepower back and I think I have that... FINALLY!

    Oh YEAH! PROUD mama comin' through.

    I'm simply thrilled because I was expecting problems. I was expecting jams, maybe some feed problems. I was waiting for something negative to happen.

    NOTHING! Every shot I took flew true. I got good groups. It felt wonderful and performed BEAUTIFULLY!

    I was very impressed and happy!

    Maybe it's the amateur psychologist in me but I read a lot between the lines when people anthromorphasize 'stuff'.

    My guns and knives are my tools, even something as personal as a guitar has always been just a piece of wood.

    My dogs however are fully fledged furry humans, my babies.

    I don't want kids, and will not have any. I am happy with my adopted 'kids'.

    Nice gun, I trust you will look after each other.

    I do agree. Stuff is stuff is stuff, however, I'll be the first to admit that I get attached to CERTAIN stuff.

    I think I'm more attached to my guns because of the money I work and work for and then leak into them. Money, at least in this family, is not necessarily growing in our back yard and so when it goes out in large quantities we tend to take VERY GOOD care of whatever comes back in from that purchase.

    $740 might not be much for some people but that's more than three weeks worth of work for me and that's if I put every dime into the purchase. With bills and rent and savings and what-not, it's well over two months if not three before I can have that kind of spare change. If it took me more than three months to work for it and save for it, I'm sure going to treat it like the three months of my working life it represents!

    I also learned a GREAT trick in college. If you name every thing you own and treat it like a human being and make yourself look almost crazily connected to those inanimate objects, if anyone asks you to borrow anything they will treat it with up-most respect and usually bring it back in a timely and intact manner (they fear you might mourn for a month and attack them in their sleep for loosing or breaking it).

    I had a lamp named E.T. and a stapler named Alvin and many many other things. I came away from college with all of my stuff intact and well cared for, even the things I lent out.
