Personal Protection

Back on the job and it is still hot. Judy made her weekly run to pick up a few groceries for our stay at the park. Only six camp sites are occupied. Judy and I are hoping that we don’t have a repeat of our previous week at the park. 

The only item we sell at the park is ICE and we are selling lots of it.

Judy has been asking me to go with her to buy a new hand gun. She has a permit to carry but does not like either of my SW 38s.  So Monday we went and looked at a replacement for her. She handled a couple of light weight revolvers but we wanted to look at another gun shop. Since we were coming back to the park Tue we decided we would put off a purchase until we get back home.  Tue before we left to come back to the park I went in to Milledgeville to get the mail from our PO Box.  Banes Army Store is close by. I thought it would be ok to stop and look at their gun inventory.  It can’t hurt to look.  In my military days I usually opted for .45 Cal especially during shipboard boarding ops.  I took a look at a .45 Cal Glock.  I also looked at the Glock 19 Gen 4 (9mm).  The “19” is physically smaller and lighter than the .45 Cal.  The Glock 19 is less conspicuous. I made a command decision to purchase me a new pistol. The price was $530.00 and some change. The sales person asked me if I was “law enforcement” I told him no but I was retired military. I was happy when he said that he could give me the law enforcement price since I was retired military as long as I have a “Mil.retired ID. I showed my ID and the price dropped to $435.00.

Judy took the news well.  She said that she would like one also.

That is it for now.

  1. My wife was an Army Sergeant and she misses having a gun. We decided to start shopping so of course she falls in love with the Sig Haur 1911 Spartan which costs over $1,100!! I asked her to lower her expecations a bit and start with something we can actually afford.

    She is also going to teach me how to use them since I have never touched one in my life.


  2. I have a Keltech .380, makes a nice little pocket pistol. I also have a 9mm S&W that was my "off duty" pistol back in my LEO days. DW bought it for me for our anniversary probably 25 years ago, gotta hang on to that one (DW and the pistol LOL)!

    Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest factor to keep in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as people think about worries that
    they plainly don't recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
