My Saturday.

Woke up and started carousing the blogs, coffee in hand.
Created a little post for Facebook:
Then my favorite radio shows came on and I started calling in.

Then the host of Trigger Talk hosted the next show for the absent host and I called in to respond to a thread of the conversation about the use of "BB" guns for self defense.

Next Matt Clark of the ClarkCast and I talked about Trump and the debates.

Then, my friend Gary Wellings of The Drift (a publisher of a local newspaper) mentioned me on his show and I responded with more about Trump, 
He supports Trump and is well aware that I don't :) 

So then Scherie and I were about to go to the range when I got notified that I had to secure a door at work, which is in the opposite direction from the range, but near a gun store some friends of mine shoot for in competition.
I wanted a .22 to go with a lot of ammo I had recently acquired, but as I said on the radio show, I didn't know what to settle on.
God is good.
I've always wanted a Luger.

And I have one.

Stopped for dinner at a diner we like on the way home.
Z: We had Ribs, Greek Salad, Broasted Potatoes and great service.

And now I'm blogging.

Life is good.

I pray it is good for you.


  1. Wow! Now THAT'S a full day. Nice looking Luger. I am not exactly a gun connoisseur, so I was confused by the name at first. I always thought 'Luger' meant 9mm (then i googled). I didn't make it to the range this week, but went last week with two of my boys (for the first time in over 25 years). Just purchased a S&W M&P Shield chambered 9 - and dusted off my S&W 5906 (which I am happy to say, still purrs like a kitten) But man, I love that Shield. Your 22 looks like a hoot to target practice with. Let me know. Maybe we can shoot together at some point.

    As for your radio circuit, I really laughed at the bit you guys had going on the ClarkCast. Maybe I need to start calling in to these programs, since mid-Michigan seems to have a monopoly. Ed from Ypsi, Angry Tom, etc etc... I need a handle, though. How about "Lead Jerry from Flint?"

    Keep up the fight. God IS good!

    2. BTW, it's a Stoeger Arms Luger.
      Got it on consignment like new, $250. I left because it didn't fit Scherie well, but she talked me into going back.

  2. Ed, I started laughing when I saw your note to ME!! HILARIOUS..and I'm grateful! I LOVE hearing about FOOOOOD! Thanks! I always have a great day Sunday, because it starts at church with THE brightest, most amazing people...just love it. Thanks....

  3. God, food, guns. It just doesn't get any better than that.
    Hope your evening is blessed. ~:)

  4. I'll just say we bought a S&W 22A1. 10 round mag. We had trouble with the mag's lower piece that didn't let the weapon fire, but S&W did send me 3 replacement lower mag pieces (for lack of a better term) and now it's fine. The slide is not the easiest thing to use to chamber a round though. There are probably better .22 pistols out there in the final analysis.
    Over and out.

    1. Does it have a comfortable grip?
      Point naturally?
      There was a recall on them due to slides not functioning correctly a few years ago.
      I bet if you arrange to send it in, they'll make it right.

  5. I didn't know there was a radio personality in our midst. I knew you called into Bill Bennett's show occasionally. Congrats on your new acquisition of the .22. It looks great

  6. Sounds like a good day all around!
