We all know how much I love, love, love Crimson Trace Laser Grips. The products are great, but I especially love the marketing slogan. The laser grips for my Kel-Tec PF9 are on back order (thanks a lot, Santa). Now they are coming out with super-nifty new laser grips for my Glock. It has an on/off switch! And, it will still fit in my holster. I have a hunch John will want a couple of sets, too. One for his Glock 17 and one for his 19. Just like a typical girl, I am all about the accessories.
John and I have something in common with the Royal Family (snicker, snicker). Prince William buys his girl, Kate Middleton, gunny gifts. And, Kate went deer hunting with him (check out the earrings). I love this girl!
I went deer hunting with John when we were dating, too. I hope Kate had more fun than I did. John still loves to tell the world that if deer were attracted to loud sighs, swinging feet from the deer stand, and constant complaining about the cold... I would have a herd of heads on the wall.
Post SHOT Show update: I've been home for a week. I've purged the mail. Finally unpacked. And I'm just now going through all the nifty stuff I gathered, bought, or acquired at SHOT Show. I am ashamed it took me a week to get my act together.
My first priority at SHOT Show was to find girly CCW accessories. I did. Hooray! I found my weekend carry "holster." It's a Galco Wisteria handbag. I love the shape (I think it's Gucci inspired). And there is plenty of room for everything else I need to pack around on the weekends. Look for pics of me sporting my fun, new bag soon. I would srike a pose now, but I am all comfy in my PJs and slippers.
John had a great idea... practice! He thought it would be a good idea to put my Kel-Tec in it (empty of course) and draw to make sure I am comfortable doing so. I think here may be video to come. The Pretty Pistolera Channel on YouTube hasn't seen anything new in a long time.
John went to SHOT Show and came home with a list of guns, holsters, and Crimson Trace Laser Grips to buy. I found a handbag. I think this is the epitome of the whole "Venus vs. Mars" thing.
John just told me my favorite outdoor gun range is starting a women's skeet and trap team this summer. Holy Shotgun Shells, Batman! This could accomplish goal #1 on the new year's list. I really hope I don't have to try out. I still have flashbacks from 5th grade cheerleading try outs. Devastating. Absolutely devastating.
Look who I saw at SHOT Show. Nice guy. I was a little nervous to meet him. Why, you ask? There is a life size cardboard cut-out of him at our local indoor range. It's right by the ladies restroom. It scares the poop out of me every time I exit the restroom. He was not frightening at all in person. Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
We are home from SHOT Show. I was on a 7:00 AM flight this morning after three full days in Orlando (five days for John). I spent a lot of time at the convention center looking for blog-worthy gunny stuff. I found some fun things to talk about... stay tuned this week for a full recap.
In addition to my gunny goodness search, I had a few personal things on my to do list:
Get a little rest and relaxation at warm, sunny hotel in Florida.
The personal to do list report card is as follows:
New handbag: Bingo! This one was easy to accomplish.
Irlene: Missed her at the SHOT Show which was a major disappointment. However, after John and I made it through security this morning we popped a squat at the communal shoe-tying-bench... and guess who was right in front of us? Irlene! And Louise! I was not coherent at 6 AM when I met her, but I promise I was absolutely ecstatic.
R&R: Didn't happen. The weather was too cold to catch a ray of sunshine. And, even if the weather was fabulous, we stayed at The Sucksalot Inn* where R&R stands for repulsive and so not relaxing. You really, really, really do not want to know the details.
*Please note the name of the hotel was changed to protect the bum they allow to sleep in the lobby. We encountered him at 5 AM this morning as we were checking out.
I am announcing a new category here at the Pretty Pistolera: Nuts Stuff John Drags Home. He can find some odd things, and he happens to be a little bit of a pack-rat. This is not a good thing... his pack-rat-ness makes me crazy. I hate stuff, knick knacks, clutter, piles, and mess. The biggest mess I usually have is the mail pile (please see exhibit A and exhibit B).
Anyway, back to the Nuts Stuff John Drags Home inaugural post... the newest addition is a black powder mouse trap.
PS - Dear God, I pray we never need to use this contraption. Amen.
