You may have noticed that I haven't been here lately. That's why there have been no articles on Michelle "Marie Antoinette" Obama and her expensive European vacation that we taxpayers are paying for. There has been no pointing out the fact that this is her eighth taxpayer-funded vacation so far, no pondering about who her sixty friends who accompanied her to Spain at our expense were, no questioning why she had to go spend all that money abroad instead of visiting our own Gulf Coast and infusing that money into the local system to help the people there...Yeah, I missed out. Sorry.
Fact is, Lagniappe and I took a little trip. We went up to visit family and see Aaron of The Shekel, shown here with his new Colt .38 and his stylin' shades that just scream: "citizens of Earth...I come in peace."
Actually, we went to his gun club and shot for a bit. We lucked out as no one else was there to use their indoor pistol range so we shot most of the session (after we finished enjoying that very nice vintage Colt) with the lights off, using my Surefire weapon light and his Crimson Trace laser for some "low light" training. We even made barricades out of range chairs and trash cans and practiced firing from behind cover in the dark. Good practice, because one should always aspire to train like you might have to fight, and let's be realistic--very few bad guys intent on doing you harm are going to agree to relocate the attack to a well-lit place and pace off a set distance from you before starting again.
After this short visit, I packed my guns, my dog and THIS GUY:
That's right--back by popular demand--The Spud has come back to visit Lagniappe's Lair for a week or so. (Tank not included, darn it.)
Bonus points to anyone who can identify the tanks and tell me where these were taken.
