2nd Thoughts

-I am a strong believer in the Bill of Rights. Some politicians would love it if the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution would just disappear.

-In 1998, I applied for an received my FL Concealed Weapons/Firearms License. From application to receipt took about 24 days (weekends included).

-When my permit expired in 2003, I was a little tight on cash, so I didn’t renew it.

-Now that the permit is good for 7 years instead of just 5, I went ahead and reapplied. The process is supposed to take no more than 90 days.

-I applied on the second week of November and I just received my shiny blue card from the agriculture department’s licensing division last week. That’s well over 90 days.

-As I mentioned in a previous entry, I purchased a Kel Tec PF 9, the smallest 9mm manufactured right now.

-All the background and serial number checks were cleared as of yesterday (this was a used gun) and I picked up my new back up pistol for concealment yesterday.

-I have a picture that shows just how small and slim this 9 is. You would have to hold it to believe how little it weighs (under a pound).

-I am prepared for a lot of recoil and hand shock due to the size of the gun. I’ll test the gun at the range April 13 when I return from my cruise.

-I am trying something different today. Instead of my normal Fuji apple today, I am having a big juicy Golden Delicious apple. I’ll let you know how that goes.

-Momma, thanks for the sweet tasty perfectly ripe banana that I had for breakfast today.

-In 3 days I embark on my stint around the Caribbean from Cozumel down to Grand Caymen and finally Ocho Rios Jamaica.

-My sweet mom will be watching our little dog Max while I am away. I hope he doesn’t get into too much mischief while I’m away.

-I’m not sure if I will get a chance to swim with the sting rays or not, but I’m definitely doing Dunns River Falls and snorkeling the reefs of Cozumel.

-It’s very difficult to get a vacation in the middle of an outage, so I was blessed to be able to do this trip.

-I’m not yet sure if I will be able to make it to church this Sunday. That’s up in the air right now. Stay tuned!

Concealed Thoughts

  • Thick as Thieves is a horrible movie.  Don’t waste your money, and even more so don’t waste your time.  I thought with Antonio Banderas and Morgan Freeman, I thought for sure it would be a winner.  Stinker.
  • I reapplied for my concealed weapons permit in mid November.  The wait time is supposed to be at most 90 days.  It’s still not here.
  • The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services runs the Division of Licensing here in Florida.  Apparently there is a backlog in licensing for security, firearms, concealed weapons, and others.
  • When I called a couple weeks ago, they explained that my license application has not even made it through data entry and is currently sitting in a pile of other applications on someone’s desk.
  • That’s funny, they cashed my check (over $100) before they even entered my application in the computer.
  • My pal OB just received his license in the mail and he applied in November as well.  Maybe mine will be here soon.
  • I am rapidly becoming a big fan of the Kel Tec product line.  They produce very unique and affordable firearms.  The two I have my eye set on are the PLR16 and the PF-9.
  • The PF-9 is a super compact ultra thin single stacked 9 mm, 7+1 capacity.  The retail price is $333 for the blue or as much as $390 for the parkerized.  I haven’t shot one, but I have a co worker who owns one and I saw him fire it.  I held one yesterday which I found for $250 used.  I think I may be able to find one just a little more than that new.
  • The PLR16 is a 223 handgun.  It’s the same caliber as the AR-15 that I carry at work, however it has no stock and a very short barrel.  This one starts just under $500, but if you own one you can easily get $1000 for it.  They are next to impossible to find new right now and there is at minimum a 2 month waiting list for them.
  • My Glock 19 is going to be a little uncomfortable to conceal because it’s so thick.  The advantage is the 15 rounds plus one in the chamber that it carries.  And it’s extremely durable, good for the range, and fun to shoot.
  • Dinner last night was pretty good.  I enjoyed a beef and potato stew with flour tortillas and cilantro.  It cost about $2.50 a plate, and that included peach iced tea.
  • It’s amazing how easy making beef and potato stew is.  Brown 3 pounds of cubed beef and a couple of small onions.  Add water and cubed potatoes and two packs of taco seasoning packs.  Turn down to medium low, cover, and stew for an hour stirring occasionally, add more water if you need.  When it thickens, the stew is so good.  Serve with warm tortillas and peach iced tea! 🙂  Sort of a mix between store bought and homemade.
  • I have twice as much left over as Marcela and I had to eat, and we shared some with mom and dad.
  • I’m still waiting for information on the operations job for FPL.  I have some information, but I don’t know if I will or will not get the offer.  As far as I know, I have done what I can do (other than follow up which I am on top of) and now I have to wait.
  • Tomorrow, I will get my paws on The Saturn Project album, Anthems for a Broken World.  The music is great and I want to play it straight through.
