I want to buy a gun.

I have no idea why.

For some unknown reason, I want a gun. I want to learn how they work, I want to learn how to shoot them, I just want to know.
Maybe it's because I'm around all these officers all the time and guns are all they talk about.
Maybe it's because someone is going to break into my house and attack me one of these days and this is God's way of warning me.
Maybe my life is just boring and I need a new hobby.

I should have prefaced this by informing you all that I know nothing about guns. I know you pull the trigger and they shoot bullets. I know there are rifles and pistols and shotguns and probably other kinds too. I know guns can kill people very badly.
I've shot guns before. My Dad has a .22 and a shotgun. I've tried those out once or twice. But see, in those situations, I'm handed a loaded gun and told, "Ok, aim for that soda can and don't kill anyone."

I don't hunt.
I'm not a cop.
I don't have some revengeful vendetta against someone.
I just want one.

Ok, now that we've established that, let's get down to business.
Aubrey and I are considering taking a concealed firearms class. There's one coming up in July and we might sign up for it. I don't ever plan on shooting someone, but well, it's probably a good idea to be able to defend myself.

So, on to equipment. I've spent the last few nights talking to officers trying to get an idea of what kind of gun to buy. (Because, if you'll remember, I know nothing. We're starting from scratch here.)
There are just so many decisions! Glock, Smith & Wesson, Colt, Beretta, Kahr, Walther...
(Are you impressed I know all these brands of guns? You should be.)

Well, after a few days discussion, I've settled on two that I might like.

Glock 23

or Kahr CW40

So, what do you think? Am I insane?
It's possible.

A little shameless promotion...

The younger sis started her own blog.

And yes, I made it all cute.

Leave her a comment.

It will make her happy.

I have nothing to blog about, so here's a photo of me:

soak up the sun...

I made it through another work week.

Graveyards are tough.

I'm loving my car. It's just what I need.

I now need to sell my old car. Melissa, get with it :)

I got to drive a police car tonight!

Ok, it was only for half a block.


Driving is driving.

I'm happy! Can you tell?

I've officially graduated from 1997, and moved on to 2002! In Toyota years, that is.

That's right! I have a new car. And I love it.

'02 Toyota Corolla. Yup, I'll be rolling in this baby for a while.

DAAAAng. 2002 looks good on me!

So, check out the new blog.

Do you love it?
I love it.

I've been wanting a re-design forever now, but I've never really had the time to do it. I figured the two year anniversary of my blog was reason enough to find the time.
That's right! Exactly two years ago today, I started out this adventure. 06/01/06
I spent my whole shift working on it tonight. I'm especially pleased with my header. I'm not very design-y and I made it from scratch! No template, nothing! (Ok, I did buy the paper and find a free font, but the design is ALL MINE!)

I'm so proud.
One other thing.
I've noticed that I've been an absolutely awful, crappy blogger lately. I miss the days when I posted things semi-regularly. I'm making a pact to do better.
Feel free to yell and scream if I fail.
