Still Alive

Yes, I'm still here. Between helping my mom, doing all the household chores, giving attention to two needy dogs, fighting off some kind of crud, and dealing with the inevitable pre-birthday depression made worse by the fact that the one coming up is a milestone year with a FOUR in it, I just haven't had the right combination of time, ability, and desire to write.

I'm feeling relatively good today, though, so I thought I'd let you all know how I was doing (Hi!) and make another to-do list of Crap What Needs Blogging:

  1. I still have to write my review of the Timney Trigger for my Mosin. I swear, guys, I'll get this done just as soon as I have a free afternoon where I can hear myself think. 
  2. I need to finish my play-by-play of "Bad Seed" for Unknown Ponies. It's halfway done; I just need to be left alone so I can finish it. 
  3. I have two new products to test!  One of them is the Readi Mask, which is an emergency smoke/airborne contaminant mask that can be kept in a coat pocket, bug-out bag or purse. I immediately took a liking to this because, in addition to being light, flat, and inexpensive, it has eye protection that works with glasses.  My only concern is that since this mask is adhesive in nature, there might be a problem getting it to work for people with beards -- which sometimes seems to be 90% of the gunnie population.
  4.  A very nice lady over at LaserMax saw my review of the Crimson Trace Lasergrip and wanted to know if I was interested in doing a head-to-head comparison. Of course I said yes, and so I was sent the LaserMax Guide Rod Laser for Glock 26.  As soon as I can find the time (as well as a free box of 9mm) I plan to go to the range and test this baby out!
Hopefully I will be able to put out another blog post later today, wherein we shall visit a few old friends. 


  1. Since when is 24 a milestone birthday?

  2. Yeah, 25 is a big deal for guys just because insurance rates start being reasonable.

    Besides, one buddy saw your profile pic (vinyl, hair down) and went "yum, and she's a gunbunny, too?"

    You're good, relax....


  3. Yeah, since when is 24 "depressing?" 

  4. Look at you, an anonymous weblogger, having companies come to you to review their products.  

    I am told that kind of thing NEVER happens!
