You Ethel!!!

We didn’t have cable until my brother decided to get it for my parents one Christmas when I was in my 20’s. We also didn’t have a VCR until I was about maybe 6 or 7. Or a microwave. And they still don’t have a dishwasher. My brother’s recent post reminds me of why I still to […]

I’m sorry.

I have a 2005 VW Jetta, 5 cylinder engine, in platinum grey. This car has been to Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Jersey…and of course PA. Its carried my muskets to Nationals, my groceries home. I’ve never had so much as a scratch on this car. Until I moved to Pennsylvania.  When I first moved to PA…I […]

I absolutely love my Makarov…but my CZ-75b 9mm will always be my baby. I love it so much, in fact, that you are seeing it lay on top of a quilt my mother made me. I am fortunate enough to live within half an hours drive to Cabela’s. They have a great firearms department, but […]

Yes, I know. 9mm Russian is not so wimpy. […]

AKs & Cupcakes

I always found it suprising when my friends or family find out I’m into shooting. You see, I’m orginally from NY. The-we-allow-you-to-have-firearms-but-we-declare-them-evil-so-if-you-want-one-you-must-go-through-hoops-to-register-it-and-pay-a-hefty-fee-plus-hope-the-local-liberal-paper-does-not-publish-your-name & address-so-everyone-knows-what-you-own-because-its-really-just-a-matter-of-public record. Part of the reason why I have a rebel heart. There are those who think its really awesome. I find some kindred spirits. Some ask me how I got into […]
