Things are slowly coming back to normal, very slowly. Saturday was such an awesome day, and so much work! Now, there is a bit of breather time. Also, very soon I will be back on track with my posting, thank you for your patience while I recycled a little and wrote about NTYDTTRD.
Sunday I had to work early for Innovative Defensive Solutions, LLC. Early, but not long. That meant...Gun Show! Couldn't resist, there was a big Gun Show at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly VA this past weekend, had to stop in and "look". Well, if you read me you know...guns are like shoes. I haven't been able to get my Glock 26 away from my husband, he really likes it. That was my back up. I have an LCP, but they do have issues with mis-feeds, even for me (some experience, know how to grip it, etc.) so...I bought a Ruger LC9 with a laser. Never had a laser, planning to take it to the range and adjust is this weekend. The LC9 if heavier than my Glock 26, but with a single stack mag it is a lot smaller profile. The reviews I've read have all been good, it has been described as a little kicky, but not bad. I'll let you know what I think after I've broken it down, cleaned it, taken it to the range and put 50-100 rounds through it.
Clean it? Yep! Always clean them when they are new, I do anyway. I learned the hard way. My first Glock, salesperson looked it over, someone I knew, and said it was fine, go shoot away. I did, it still had the copper silt in it which ended up in my face...ow! Nothing quite like getting pelted with tiny shards of metal. So, yes. On principle, it is probably a good idea anyway, make sure everything looks like it should, even though they are supposed to put one round through them at the manufacturer. Ensure it looks right, is clean, lubed up appropriately and ready to go.
I ordered a Remora thigh holster for the LC9. Plan to carry it as a back up and on the rare occasions when I can't find a place to put the Glock 19. Doesn't happen often but in a dress the 19 can be a problem.
So...naming? I'm leaning toward Raven. It is black, it is intimidating and I love Edgar Allen Poe...
