It's been a whole MONTH?

A couple of readers have been kind enough to ask if all was well, as it's been so long since I've done any blogging.

Yes, I'm okay, and I do appreciate your asking. It's really a combination of things - - Been quite busy with other stuff lately, and there's . . . not really a BLOCK, but a little difficulaty in getting thoughts down in a coherent manner. I really have tried - - I have three or four pieces I've started, gotten halfway through, and became distracted or bogged down.

I really need to pull our a couple of them and put on the finishes so I can post 'em.

Previews of coming attractions: Matt and I are going to haul out the old Oehler chronograph and see if it still works. We need to do some testing of new-to-us loads. I'll do a more complete review/range test of an S&W model 21-4 .44 Special. Friend Tamara featured this model in a recent Arms Room installment. Mine will concentrate on loads, light and heavy, and some more historical anecdotes.

Beloved Bride got me a truly handsome birthday gift. Through an on-line auction she bought a fifty-year-old Colt Super .38. FedEx tracking says it should reach my local FFL next Wednesday afternoon, and I'm writhing with anticipation. I'll give details of the acquisition, range testing, historical context, and other stuff.

Well, it seems I've taken the process of making excuses and turned it into at least some kinda blog entry. I'm really flattered at the interest, and I'll submit something halfway substantial soon.
