Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there (at least to the good ones).

A special Happy Father's Day wish to my Uncle Ken, he has been more of a father to me than was my own father.

All the best,

Insomnia Leaves Me Packing For The Trip To The NRA LE Development School

I have been busy getting things ready and packing, for my trip later today, for about the last 2 hours and I have not packed any clothes yet! What has kept me that busy has been making sure I have all the gear I will need for the course. That includes:

Glock 26, 9mm pistol
Holster for pistol
10 magazines
Extra double mag pouch
Ammo can with 900 rounds of 9mm ammo

Remington 870 Shotgun
Sling for shotgun
Case for shotgun
Gun sock for shotgun
Ammo can with 20 rounds buckshot,
50 rounds of slugs and 100 rounds of #9 shot

250 rounds of .40S&W (in case I decide
to have some fun with the SIG 229)

Shooting glasses
Shooting ear muffs
Ear plugs
Range box
Range bag
Firearms cleaning kit
Cleaning solvent
Breakfree CLP
Screwdriver set
Glock armorer's tool
Brimmed cap (a boonie hat)
Rain gear (a poncho)
Camera & batteries
USB cord for camera
High blood pressure medication
Survival pack

Later today, I will pack clothing and toiletries for the trip, throw everything into the Toyota Corolla, go to the ATM at my bank for some cash, then hit the road. Before doing any of that, I will go see my mom for a nice father's day visit. (On Saturday my family took me out for dinner. My son gave me a bottle of Tequila and my daughter paid for half of the dinner, my wife paid for the other half. Not bad presents at all and a very nice father's Day for me albeit a day early.)

Now that I am done with my packing my gear, I guess I should get done with the blogging and hit the hay. The rest of today promises to be a long one.

All the best,
