Wednesday Afternoon

Got home this afternoon and spent an hour working on the pool.  It's starting to look pretty good now, I'm not ashamed to let someone swim in it.  Of course, even a dirty pool is cleaner than the lakes, streams, rivers and bayous we swam in as kids.... but still.

Then, I got out the revolver and decided to work on my draw.  I was watching and learning from the Top 10 in Fort Worth and picked up a few pointers.  I went out to 10 feet and started re-learning how to draw and shoot a single-action revolver.  I expected the group to be low on the target because I'm closer to it, and the center is set at 50 inches.  It looks like the group is a little to the right, so I'll have to adjust for that.

When I came in, my son had sent me a picture of the long-gun holster he's building for me.  The kid is turning into quite the leather-smith.

That's a very nice looking Slim-Jim holster.  Now, I'm going to crack a bottle of Jim Beam and have a cocktail.
