    They don't. They offered to add me to the waiting list this morning.

    The suppressor is here in ATF jail. I suspect it still has to do about 8 months even with good behavior. I need to take the rifle back in for another conjugal visit soon. I have a bunch of sub-sonic stuff to try out.

    You know, it's in a federal prison, I wonder if Trump would pardon it in exchange for dirt on Phillbo?

    The most concealable, yet comfortable pistol I have owned is a vintage BROWNING MODEL 1910/55 .380 SEMI-AUTOMATIC PISTOL. These were imported in the 50’s-60’s, but some are still around. Not much power, but fit really nicely in my relatively small hand.

    I used to carry this gun to court as a prosecutor in cases when the perps had friends making threats. It might not bring them down, but it would certainly ruin their day.

    My Hellcat finally arrived yesterday. It has been on order for over a month. While I was leaving someone else was inquiring about the availability. It seems he should have ordered one at least a month ago. I came home and ordered a Shield RSMC, 3 more magazines and 1000 rounds of CCI/Speer 115 grain FMJ ammo with free shipping. It comes out to $0.175 per round. Not bad. Gonna go shoot it up when it arrives.....

    I installed the optical sight and went to the range yesterday to try it out. I'm not sure I like the sight, it will take some getting used to. It doesn't seem to work as I had thought - moving your head a little changes the aim point of the red dot without moving the gun. The interesting thing is you can co-witness the aim point using both the iron sights and the optical sight. Doing that, the aim point is nailed down. Overall, I liked the new weapon and sight.

    Today, I took it to one of my department's monthly qualification days so that I could carry the Hellcat without violating department rules. For whatever reason, I had a really good day. I shot better than I have in a long time. And yes, I did the co-witness thing. That might have made the difference because my eyes no longer focus well on the iron sights and target at the same time. Adding the red dot into the mix seems to help.

    As an aside, my daughter showed me up yesterday. She shot both the Hellcat and my Glock 23 much better than I did.

    One of the most challenging concerns in optical sight design is reducing the effect of parallax...It's why really good rifle scopes cost so much money...

    I'm not surprised since she gets more practice against marshmallow bunnies than you do...Proof that discipline pays dividends......

    But it's good to know the gun was a worthwhile investment......Ben

    This sight advertises itself as being parallax free. That's why I paid the extra bucks for it instead of a cheaper sight. Shield RMSc
