Candle Liting

So Lovely Lady has been ragging on me to get my buns busy here. (And we all know, if Momma ain't happy... blah blah...) So, as a form of self defense, we're back on the road to illiterary ignominy. Or something like that.
Now, for something a bit more serious-
Everyone knows who the Brady Bunch is- no, not that Partridge family twin. Those Criminals Stealing Gun Rights groupies.  Anyway, they're lighting a candle this Sunday, 8 January 12, to protest gun violence.  And right they should,  we all should. Every person should denounce gun violence, even those who're committing it. Especially them: each and every one should walk away carried by pall bearers. Weerd Beard  (  )  has come up with his version of the candle lighting and is encouraging all gun owners to light a candle against gun violence.  Since I am one of those terrorist guys who believes in God and the Bible and the Constitution, am a vet, an NRA member, drive a gas guzzling four wheel drive truck and tell tree huggers- especially AlGorey- to lick my ... wait, this' family oriented... and sure don't like the politics- or the politicians in- coming out of D.C. these days, I decided to post a picture or my DCP (that's 'Daily Carry Piece' for the uninitiated to my unorthodox- we can't call it English since I'm an American-lingo).
Without further much ado- here she is. Simple, old, and sure not elegant but she's steady and strong and American made- my Lady, Smith and Wesson model 469 carried in her Kirkpatrick Leather holster and packing 13 rounds of Glaser Pow'RBall Plus P in the grip and another 13 in the spare.

Remember- cops are only hours away in a donut shop when you need them in a coffee shop. Not that your safety is their concern- 'cuz it ain't. It's yours. So pack some heat for when the kitchen gets hot.
Bless God, God bless.
(Yes, I did do a spel-chek today, and am studiously ignoring all suggestions.)


  1. Good to see you back amigo.

  2. I will certainly light a candle to that.

  3. Thanks, May'b. The more candles we can light, the more the darkness will recede.
    For some reason, comments ain't working right now that Goog has done some revamping of whatever it is they revamp, so please- don't be offended if you don't see your comment, 'cuz I ain't gonna monitor them. Unless they get outta hand and tell me to vote for the Dark Lord, Romneycare or the Gnewt. Well, and that other guy from the Southwest... and maybe... ;)

  4. What kinda gun is that? Is it a 2nd Gen Smith & Wesson auto of some kind?

  5. Yes, Legman- it's an early 80's model S&W 469- predates the M&P by a decade or so. SA/DA, 9mm with decocking/safety lever on the left side. Hard plastic S&W grips- slim looking but fits my hand better than my XD, almost as well as my Ruger. (I'm told I've got long fingers.) It's a good shooter, no problems with it in competitions when I use it- hasn't shot anyone yet that I'm aware of, though it was a cop's gun before I got it. He tells me it was pretty popular with PDs and even the Feebs used it a while.
    Other than that, I'm about lost for any further information on it. Well, I do know that and XD magazine fits it perfectly. I needed to cut mag lock slots into them at the proper location, but the fit is perfect and doesn't even look bad with a 16 round mag hanging out the well 1/4 inch.

I believe in the First Amendment and so should you. Speak your mind and piss on political correctness!
