A happy and blessed New Year to all my readers
I'll be joining Miss D., Old NFO, Lawdog, Phlegmmy and ae_pilotjim to see in the new year tonight. With a gathering like that, it promises to be a lot of fun.
I also have a new toy to show off. Santa came late to my local gunshop, leaving a mint-condition Smith & Wesson Model 69 in the used gun case, where I could see it and snap it up before anyone else did. The price was affordable, and I had a couple of trade items to spare, so the deal was speedily done. I picked it up this morning. I'm looking forward to comparing it side-by-side with my Taurus Tracker .44 Magnum revolver (the success of which spurred Smith & Wesson to introduce their competing, very similar Model 69). Look for a range report soon.
I hope all of you have a wonderful New Year's Eve. May 2017 be better for all of us than 2016! God bless.
