On Tools -

A gun is a tool, Marian.

no better or no worse than any other tool

an axe, a shovel or anything. 

A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it.

Remember that.

Note - The Ruger has a review coming up this Wednesday or Thursday depending on internet access.


  1. Simple advice.

    Beyond the ability of many to understand.

  2. Yep, ALL tools... just some are more expensive than others...

  3. People used to understand this concept.

  4. Gaack! That vernier caliper looks terrible! Gimme an address and I'll send you a much better one; my eyes are too old to read it reliably anyway. :-(

  5. These tools are all really old, found at auctions and as part of sets of some good stuff at junk shops. A couple of them are cleaning up nicely at home but still a ways to go.

    Dad, getting over a bad cold, but otherwise OK.

  6. Yes.

    Again, a breath of fresh air.

  7. Waiting on the review with bated breath!
