First Time At The Range (2016.04.26)

My Glock 30’s primary pieces (Copyright © 2016 by Wil C. Fry.) For the first time in my life, I went to a shooting range. Though I’m a long-time gun-owner — I’ve had my current handgun for 19 years or so, I’ve never once been to a shooting range. Every time I’ve fired a gun,[…]

Thank you to everyone who reached out via email, telephone, text messages, Twitter, and Flickr (I think that covers all the ways that people contacted us).

Thank you to everyone who called, emailed, or commented on the blog, checking to see if we were okay yesterday. (Read yesterday’s post.) It’s pretty scary when something like that happens nearby, especially when one’s wife is in the thick of it. We’re all calmed down now, and my wife is off work today and[…]

Plaguedwitdestruction, I know what you mean about Maud. That town was hopping, way back in the 1920s, when Chicago was #1 in railroad tonnage, Seminole was #2, and Maud was #3 (it’s all in the history books!) But now, there’s almost nothing left. Kambri, we DO deliver to NYC, interestingly enough, but the paper would[…]

Last night, after a full day of visiting my brother in college at Ada and shopping down there, I got home to hear my police scanner shouting about “shots fired” on Gessel street in Seminole. I forgot I was on vacation, grabbed my camera bag and a pack of cigarettes, and headed over there. Just[…]
