NRA Life Member to be Republican VP Nominee

She is also the governor of Alaska, wife, mother, hunter and obviously a go-getter.  The thing is that she is a real member of the NRA, not a punch-my-ticket-pay-for-membership-with-campaign-contributions member.  I may even put up a yard sign for the McCain-Palin ticket.  One thing for certain, if you aren't voting for McCain-Palin you are voting for socialism and antigunners of the first order.

Pseudo Colt Agent

I'd gotten a Colt Cobra, made in 1972, and it was pretty good for a carry gun. Light, 6 rounds, and with the Tyler-T adapter a filling yet compact grip. Still, it was too big for pocket carry and many assured me that the Colt Agents were pocket carry capable. I wanted to try one out, but I didn't want to spend a fortune on a quality Agent.

Then I was pleased to find some Detective Special stocks for only $6.99 at CDNN. I thought these Sile skip-diamond stocks would be just the thing to dress up my DS (which has some rather ugly original stocks). So, I ordered them and they arrived. I opened the package only to discover that they were actually AGENT stocks. Of course these will fit the late (post 1966) grip frame. On they go and there you go, an "Agent". Neat!

This gun, with the Buffalo Bore item #20C, is going to be a fine carry gun.  I don't think it will work for pants pocket carry for me but I do have some jackets in which it will work quite well.

Hunting Season Nearly Here

I've got my license, I'm  getting the "fever" and hopefully I'll get the time, hunting season(s) are almost here!
