New Carry Weapon…



Kahr Arms MK40 .40 S&W

Kahr Arms MK40 .40 S&W




So, the summer months are waning on and there’s no let up in sight for T-shirt and shorts weather here in the south.  I’ve been wanting a new, smaller carry weapon for when I venture out into the cruel world.  While I’m a huge Sig Sauer fan and normally carry the P229 or P225, I’ve been longing for a compact, pocket carry-able handgun to help lighten the load.

After some research, some shooting, some hemming and hawing, and even flirting with the idea of a revolver, I settled on a Kahr Arms MK40.   Its a dual action only,  sub-compact (they call it a micro, but I wouldn’t go that far) semi-auto chambered for the venerable .40 S&W cartridge.   I knew going with a smaller gun would reduce the magazine load, so I went with the larger caliber to deliver more bang for the buck, so to speak.

After picking it up last week, I headed to the range and put about 200 rounds through it to break it in.  I’m very happy with it.   While it took a bit to get used to, being such a small gun, it was accurate and has a snappy recoil.

I like it’s all steel frame and the fact that it weighs 24 ounces unloaded.   This helps a lot when it comes to dealing with the recoil of the larger caliber.   It came with the extended 6 shot magazine, but I think for the comfort factor I’ll go with the 5 shot magazine, carried in a 5+1 configuration.



Can’t wait for the next chapter.

Believe again.

In grand X-Files manner, the as yet untitled film’s storyline is being kept under wraps. This much can be revealed: It is a stand-alone story in the tradition of some of the show’s most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the complicated relationship between Fox Mulder (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson) in unexpected directions. Mulder continues his unshakable quest for the truth, and Scully, the passionate, ferociously intelligent physician, remains inextricably tied to Mulder’s pursuits.


My pride and joy….

A long time ago, as a young boy, my imagination was captured by a simple looking watch full of color and life. Something about it just struck my fancy like no other watch before or since. I love watches and the intricacies that make them work.

I bought this back in 2004 after much internal debate and anticipation. I’d never in my life spent so much money for such a luxury item and figured I never would again. Not for a minute have I regretted this purchase. And now, that this watch is no longer in production, I’m especially happy to have this model.

Yeah, there’s a story behind how this watch came to my attention, but that’s for another post, another day.

Check out the new Sig P229

I love the smell of a new gun in the morning….   Well, not exactly brand new, but new to me.  Found it yesterday at the local shop.  Some idiot purchased it recently new and apparently never fired it or only put a minimum of rounds through it.  Other than two tiny nicks on the frame’s finish it’s basically in brand new condition.  For those in need of the details, it’s a Sig Sauer P229R (Rail) DA/SA semi-automatic 9mm with factory night sights.  It came with two hi-cap 13 round magazines.   Date on the case shows it was manufactured in November 2007, so I know it wasn’t in someone’s hands for too long.   Best part….. it came in just under $500.  That’s a steal in my book!

So, in honor of the SCOTUS D.C. vs. Heller case going the right way I thought I’d celebrate my newly confirmed God-given rights ….. again.  🙂




Just another day at the range…
