    More Oregonians, that's what we need! Well, more Oregonians carrying, that's for sure.

    Nice looking pair of LCP's, there! You'll have to do a "range report" with some photos, after you've flogged them the first couple of times. It'll be nice to hear of actual experiences with these new pistols.

    Thanks! I'm encouraged by all these friendly responses...

    Aw man, I am jealous. I can't even get one LCP and you have two. Maybe if I become your new best friend you will let me shoot it?

I'm sure many think that that is total bunk--but I'd love to hear opinions anyway...

    This chart was interesting, most of you have probably seen it; GS looks good according to this guy's test, but they were also the only defensive round I could find locally in stock.


    OldGranpa's tests are great, and when you do the 2-3 conversion his tests, mimic jello.

    Stay with the Golden Saber.

    Another fellow Oregonian! Well, let's meet at a range sometime and we'll have a field day!

    Welcome from 100 degree today Arizona!

    Many folks like pocket carry with the tiny guns. There are any number of pocket holsters available. Do a search.

    Next freezing, snowing day, you're on. I'm sure there'll be one o' those within the coming week, the way things are going, weather-wise. We could call it "The Cinco De Mayo Popsicle Shoot," or some such. Ha!

    Hey! I resemble that remark.

    Actually, I am thinking of sponsoring a DC shooting party at Tri-county this summer. Stand by for future details.

    Sounds great -- we don't have many friends who are into shooting. Private ranges cost an awful lot, so we usually end up going out in the backwoods...

    Yes, it was a little tough, as no one around here had them. Finally went to gunbroker.com, and found a dealer in Kentucky that had them (at slightly above retail). After that, and a few little FFL transfer glitches, I had it in hand... maybe 10 days after original order. I suggest you do a search on gunbroker.com and see what you turn up.

    Let us know, and good luck!
