Just pining for the fjords

... it's been a busy spring. Lots of work, work is busy enough that I don't have the capacity to brain a few sentences here and there into a complete post, and when I'm home I spend time with family, not staring at a laptop. It's mostly been a conscious choice - there's too much life to live outside.

Summer is rapidly descending on us in flyover land, and I'm already making vacation plans left and right. Texas, New York, Colorado... and if I can snag a long weekend somewhere in there I'm going to try for a few nights of camping a bit more locally.

I haven't been shooting in months, which is starting to grind my gears a bit. I'll have to make some time for the range shortly and knock some of the dust off... not to mention putting a few rounds through three (!) new-to-me pistols that haven't been out yet.

Several of my friends and tribe are off in Louisville for the NRA Expo. I hope they're having a good time - I know we did in Pittsburgh, which was the first and only time I met some of youse clowns. Looking forward to the pictures and floor reports with tastes of what's coming. (The Shield .45 has my attention for the moment.)
