Re: What is Reliable Enough?

For a gun that I carry, I may be more tolerant to FTE issues. I practice a lot, and can clear it well. But for my wife, I want 99.99999% uptime on her carry gun.

Re: My Mother is in ICU

Thanks for your prayers. My mom is home and doing well. The doctors found blood flow blockage around her heart but did not have to do anything as new veins had grown around the blockage.

I have taken several out of sate trips since getting my CHL in 2013. The only change I might make is to carry more ammunition as a hedge against high prices.
