Example of gun display. A very good target pistol. Been on the market for years and has gone through a series of changes. History here. Price is right in today's market. Notice it is used.
Very good first time buyer choice. Ammo available although more spendy. But not the $1 a round found from most sellers these days for center fire ammo. Still affordable to purchase and to plink with. Can learn everything about use, correct terminology in a gun environment and gun safety with this pistol.
These little pistols are keepers and will shoot forever. Also a great pistol to learn take-down , cleaning, maintenance and re-assembly.
I heard folks selling and talking pistols referencing handguns as a "weapon". This is a "no no." They are pistols, handguns, revolvers, semi-automatics; not "weapons." I would have hoped folks in the business would get and use correct terminology.
Regardless, a very good turn out in a small town gun show. All ages, walks of life and both men and women. (Probably just annoyed some one here.)
Chatter among the vendors indicated very big turn-outs at other Texas gun shows these past few months. Proving the fact that more and more folks are wanting and purchasing guns and ammo. AND NO!!...you cannot walk into a gun show and easily pick up a gun without going through a background check and clearing through proper paperwork. Vendors can also choose if they want to sell you a gun or not. No reason for a "no" answer. Look or act a little "hinky" is enough to earn a "no" in these troubled times.
Availability of most pistols and rifles: yes. Costs are noticeably higher.
FOUND MEME ON ACE OF SPADES a few days ago.
Just have to share because I remember every one of these. Dirt!!!
1. drive-in movies.
2. spit wads.
3. playing stretch (grade school) with our pocket knives.
4. getting our first car at 16.
5. family dinners
6. walking several miles to and from school
7. shooting marbles during recess
8. five and dime.
10. high school club initiations. Jail time today!!
11. lake pipes.
12. public hacks from teaches using paddles with holes drilled in them. Taught me!! Boys only.
13. AND a school assembly called where "the bad boys" would be marched up on the stage and the principal would deliver the public hacks. We survived and helped build the world. Now it is all be given away and where are the men who will stand up? Hiding at home, living with mom and dad! ok, ok...
Awake at three. Seven hours good sleep. Coffee time.
Early morning garden protection for possible freeze. A light coat of water mist to all the fledgling plants. Holding at 34 degrees but temperatures always seems to drop a few degrees at day break.
Neighbor said to mist. Internet gives a more detailed explanation of why it works.
As for me I just misted every half hour. Had there been wind, I would not have had to mist as the wind would have prevented freezing. Did not know that. Neighbor did.
Bright light on the right was an RYOBI battery shop light. Got it awhile back just in case I might need good light at night.
Recently purchased a watering nozzle with adjustments from misting to full on. Another good buy as the misting worked perfectly for this need. No way I could have "squirted" a proper light mist.
There was a noticeable dew on the car windows and I tested each time I went out to see if it was glazing. Close, but did not.
I knew of this procedure for crop protection but never needed it. Eastern Washington has large fans in some of the crop fields with tall misting nozzles plumbed through the growing fields. All that work and expense because it works. Have seen the same here in east Texas.
So another hands-on east Texas test learning experience.
Looking at you looking at me looking at you!

FIELDS OF GOLD
But this week we were cruising with neighbors running on the edge of the "The Big Woods" outside Gilmer, Texas.
We found this field rounding a back road corner. This is a fairly good example of the kind of everyday spring scenery during the coming and goings from home to town and back. I ramble from to time about landscapes here. How common and absolutely drop dead gorgeous are the Piney Woods in east Texas! Not a question.
THE DEER IS OFFICIALLY SET IN PLACE
One of her purchases from Canton's first Monday. Yard covered with bark mulch finally and the deer set in place. One more check-off of her list of Spring things to get planted or set in place. I have never been much of a fan of things like this. But full disclosure, I very much like this. And yes, have given her "atta girls" this week for her efforts.
