New holster

Seeings how this post is the #2 result for “tuckable P07″, I thought an update is in order. After scouring the Internets for a tuckable IWB holster for my CZ P07, I decided, based on this post at CZforumsite.info, to go with a Crossbreed SuperTuck Deluxe for the Springfield XD. I like the concept of hybrid holsters, as they combine the easy re-holstering and retention of kydex with the comfort of leather, and I wanted a holster that would mimic my BladeTech IDPA holster as much as possible and yet still offer almost total concealment. 

It should be here in a few weeks, with a report to follow after that.

Both sides of the story

Unlike a lot of gunnies, I can completely empathize with the goals and ideals behind the Brady campaign, and Sebastian deserves to be praised for opening up a dialog with them. We’re not all gun-crazy loonies, and they’re not all gun-grabbing socialists.

I don’t agree with the Brady campaign, but I can see how their point of view evolved. 

Just like the Brady campaign, I don’t like violent criminals, and I don’t like guns being used as a means to commit suicide (remind me to tell you all of the encounter with a failed suicide victim I had as a young lad in high school). 

But. 

I don’t blame backyard pools for accidental drownings and I don’t blame baseball bats for muggings. I don’t blame the printing press for the existence of Mein Kampf and I don’t blame Thomas Edison for Uwe Boll’s awful, awful films

Ok, I may waver a bit on that last one.

Valley of the Ten Peaks

I grew up in Canada. See that photo? That’s two hours away from my home town. I love Canada, always have, always will. 

But. 

The fact that the citizens of Canada are even considering arguing whether or not the government has the right to track, index and tax the rifles and shotguns of law-abiding citizens (to say nothing of the almost complete ban on handguns up North) saddens me to no end. 

Beware the government that is wary of its citizens.

Dot Torture Drill: 49 out of 50. 

And the instant I dropped that one shot, I knew it was because I let my concentration slip. Next time, it’ll be perfect.

I wanted to get in some more time with my P3AT, and at first blush, my times with the CZ look really bad, as my scores were much lower than last time, including one really awful run there in the middle. 

But. 

Let’s compare where I was back in July versus where I am now.

The times for everything are about the same, however, my accuracy has definitely improved, which was the point of all of this all along.

Cool.

The Deadline Approaches

My staff entry into the Rio Salado Desert Classic has been accepted. I’m shooting the match. 

If you recall, the reason for this blog is… 

I want to be in C Class for the Rio Desert Classic, which means that I’ll actually need to be ready to go a month before that, as typically, Rio puts on an all-classifier match to accommodate people who want to shoot the classic in a new class or with a new gun. 

My current ranking is 29.77, and I need to be in the top 40 to make C Class. 

I can do it. 

I think.
