Got the Jeep a little dirty yesterday. I have been trying to get the wife to the desert bar for a few years now. Yesterday was her first time there. It was a great day in Parker ending with a sunset cruise to Pirates for a few buckets of who know what. LOL

Got up this morning and didn’t want to make coffee. SOOOooooo....I go grab some and the whole time watching a balloon cruising slowly across the sky. Text the wife hey look out the window you might be able to see it from the house. Sure enough she was able to see it out the front windows. I am cruising home and the balloon is getting closer and closer I lost sight of it. Once home jumped out of the Jeep and it is closer that ever. I open the garage yell to the wife you got to get out here now. This is the closest that one has even been to us.

8 hours ours was 3 and 50?$
This was a little more involved than your typical instruction. He does alot more than just what is required. From gun fundamentals to breathing techniques. The instructor was "special ops" in the military, ex law enforcement, owns the gun shop, has military contracts to improve weapons and ammunition.. he had all kinds of different guns for us to handle. Had a bunch of different conceal holsters for us to try. Presented a bunch of different ballistic test to show us what different calibers do and what to look for in a concealed carry. Went into depth on gun laws. It was $100

It was long but very well worth it. We have a few places that get you in and out in a few hours. But the info in his class was well worth it. I was pretty impressed. And was great for the wife, put alot of her concerns at ease and made her feel much better to the point we are going gun shopping this afternoon for her. I think she has it narrowed down to a glock 43x or the Sig P365

Plus we did Oregon, Utah and Florida so we will be like 47 state legal.

Plus he got in 30,000 rounds of 9mm yesterday so I was able to grab some of that! Wasnt cheap but cant find it anywhere else local.

We took ours last Saturday. It was 8 hours also, No pizza and beer though lol.
Have your wife check out the Sig P238. That’s the one I’m leaning towards. I have a P365xl and it has too much kick for me.

Used to ride it on MTB's. Tons of exposure and really refines your technical skills.
That is tough, my son bike camped it all the way to seven springs in his senior year at cactus shadows high school. He said they walked more than they rode. After hiking it I understand why. Back in the day used to jeep all that.

Oh shit, we’re you sitting behind us at Blue Chair? :D Mine was Houseboat in late 80’s with full sound system up top, couple strippers and a DJ playing 2 live crew under the bridge.. Told my wife I’m gonna drive it. She said you should learn the history. Told her BS, gonna make and tell it.

Good info. We will look into that one as well. She has shot different pistols a few and already has a little .380 that recoils like a sob. My thing is I'm not willing to trust that Taurus with her life! We have put probably 150 rounds through it and it has jammed 3 or 4 times. So not reliable enough in my eyes for a carry. Plus I like the mag capacity of the 365 for a smaller gun

Had a guy in our group fall off and break a hip in a bad spot. They had to roll him out on one of those one wheeled carts to get him to a place a chopper could land. We were through riding to Spur Cross. We got home late in the dark, we had no lights, got to Spur Cross road, right at dark. I lived in Desert Hills at the time. I rode through Cave Creek park home.

Good times....

Some 70’s firecrackers and bottle rockets turned in by an old guy today. Said he took them from his son 40 years ago.
13 years on the squad, thousands of firecrackers, first time I saw some from when I was a kid(wrapping)
Us Gen X’ers never left those unused🤣

Do they even have firecrackers like those anymore ? Seemed like as a kid I always had those things handy, but damned if I can even recall who my dealer was ? 😁

Might want to remove those pictures. No shoring in the excavation at five foot depth,
unless that guys midget, a step ladder is illegal used in that position and no face shield using a cutoff saw. Leave the underground to the professionals😂

Yeah, " The professionals " is one label, but sitting here easily recalling the day when real men worked construction, I'm inclined to think of another, that's far less flattering. :rolleyes:
OMG, the safety police might come. :oops:

They were fine. The walls were like rock. ;) The apprentice should have had his safety glasses on though.:mad:

It looks benched to me, and certain soils do not require shoring according to OSHA.

Yep. When you have 6 buildings without fire protection and you need to get the water back on that night. The inspector didn’t have a problem with what we were doing. :D
