Was perusing the picture albums today and after 8-10 pages of just about every variety of gun our membership has shared with us and I made the mistake of assuming a gun is a gun is a gun. The compact autos started running together; same with stubbier revolvers.

Take a look at these few pages of what I’m talking about and you’ll probably feel as I did.

Then I ran across a few pix that brought back memories - discussions with our Western European shooting brethren. Their handguns have some interesting requirements that there I believe is a minimum barrel length and the handguns have an extended rail out the back of the grip base. Something to do with making the gun less likely to be concealed.

Check these pages out.

In addition I reviewed a few of the ”more recent” international threads and posts and seems use has dropped off. One of our more active British members’ wife was dying with end stage cancer last year and he was having to wrangle with the law about her pistol permits and her actual guns, too.

This touched me more than I thought it would. And in a good way. I have a much higher respect for the freedoms we still enjoy and buy most any firearms without extended weights or gadgets and we can store them at home or wherever we want to but don’t have to have them locked at a shooting rangem

We do still have a lot to be thankful for in this nation. And it ain't just our firearms freedoms.

What age range you talking about? My three are spread between 33 - 25. And the youngest is by far the most vocally conservative.

And, to tell you the truth, I didn’t become as politically aware as I am now until AFTER I retired. I guess I give politics more attention now . . . and sometimes I have to force myself to take a break because the House lunacy will drive ya crazy now. I have to take refuge and comfort in the fact that world ending legislation won’t happen n under a week.

Although, the House declaration today . ..... . . .zzzzz
