    New Year, what will be new with you?

    Seeing as 2010 is just a few hours away, I have been thinking( I wondered what the burning smell was). What are your plans for firearms/firearms related purchases and training. Training courses for improving my marksmanship with hand guns and my AR-15. Guns under consideration, still pondering that one. Also getting back to physical/dietary training(goodbye poochy belly).

    I'm getting the itch for a semi auto rifle in .223/5.56, but for sure I'll add a couple of new holsters to my collection.

    This might be the year to put an AK in the safe.

    I'm looking at definitely two purchases: S&W 642 (the first), then a Kimber (not sure which yet), plus the holsters/mags to go with.

    May start looking into getting my first AR. I may be out of cash by then....

    Oh boy I have a lot...

    Training starts TODAY. Defensive handgunning class tonight and tomorrow, hopefully a combat pistol course this year too. I would also like to take a defensive rifle course.

    Speaking of training, this year I want to have all of my requirements for my brown belt in American Kenpo in the books.

    New toys. 2009 was an amazing year for me, and for 2010 I would like to get:
    1. An LCP for pocket carry when all else fails.
    2. A 1911. I just have a hankering, because all my pistols are plastic!
    3. A Judge. Yes I know it is a range toy. Nice hunting gun too.
    4. A lever action hunting rifle. I am not sure which one yet.

    I am not sure that any of those will happen, but we shall see.

    Physically my goal is to run three half-marathons in 2010. The first is in two and a half weeks here in Phoenix! I already have the second in April booked out, the third is TBA. That's not directly firearms related, but my health is indirectly related. On January 16th I will mark the 10th anniversary of being rear-ended by a drunk driver, resulting in 2 back surgeries and my eventual removal from active duty military service. Running the half will be a big victory.
