You guys will like this, I love it when disparate worlds come together...

I went to a Belly Dance class tonite; cool teacher, cool dance sisters, blah, blah, :blah:

Being the holiday season, it was just 3 students and the teacher. One gal goes, "How was your xmas?", the other replies, "I got a new pistol!". I say, "Wuddyaget?". A Kel-Tec (something or other), 30 rds of .22LR, and she shows us a picture of it. "It fits my hand better than my S&W 9mm." says she! The other gal starts talking about her .38 spcl, I tell them my wife is a revolver gal, etc, etc, etc.

This would NOT have happened in Commiefornia!

I'm already thinking we could combine a "Hafla" (Belly Dance party) with a shoot! Hafla, Shoot; Shoot, Hafla - Shafla? :tooth:

    When you're here for the shoot, get Mary to tell you the story of the groundhog, the .357 Ruger Blackhawk, and the crew of tree trimmers from the electric company. "No habla Ingles- - - - -Si habla .357!"

    I heard a rumor there's water there that can make you feel young.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    We are good with the party. With restrictions of course. No dancers with a penis. No exceptions. No belly dancers with fat rolls.
    So yeah. Let's party!

    Hate to tell ya, but some of the VERY best Belly Dancers are quite "large". More to work with!

    In any case I'm gonna start buying duct tape.

    I wonder if there are any trees left at Jerry's that he hasn't pushed over with the tractor?

    Whatever floats his boat, I reckon. I ain't judgmental, all I see is green or not green. Mental, though...probably.

    Yea, I do have a partiality towards WW II service pistols - but have a CZ-75 and a Beretta Tomcat (among others) too! When I get here to Fl permanently, I get to figure out what carry piece I want - and that'll be a completely modern, polymer pistol such as a Glock 43 or similar.

    As for the dance, I heard its siren call - and I have a lot of fun. Going on 16 years now, I'm finally becoming at least vaguely competent at it - hardest damn thing I've ever tried to learn. I'm a natural class A+ Klutz - if I can do it, anybody can. Even CPJ.

    Getting back to the original subject, I looked up my dance sister's new pistol - the Kel Tec PMR-30:

    pmr30-right.png

    Not familiar with it, but she's really proud of it. More power to her! Its not a .22LR as I had (mis)understood, its a .22WMR.

    Looks like some work in that.

    Did you make the cane yourself?

    I eat a a greek restraint once in the 90's. There were two belly dancers, a beautiful lady and a guy dancing between tables while you ate. The lady was good but the guy was great. He out did the lady with moves that were so graceful it was hard to believe a guy could move so fluid.

    on a side note I had to dump the rice and meat out of the grape leaves to eat, just could not eat grape leaves.

    Sounds like my wife's dance group, she the designated master at arms!! (enforcer)

    She saw your dance pictures, her group leader would freak out if you were in her group, to much belly hair!!

    Sparklies. . .or tracers? You can use those in Florida without burning the surrounding 20 miles down. :jester:

    Zorbs, that .22 Mag pistol of your pals looks to be a reiteration of something Ram Line (yes, the cheap plastic magazine company) played around with in the '90's. As I recall, Magnum Research brought out essentially the same gun a few years later with a facelift to make it look more like a Desert Eagle. Neither really went anywhere, but I guess with the FN 5.7, we're learning more about how to make .22WMR autoloaders that work.

    Sincerest congratulations on getting out of CA. Both parents are on the one hand frustrated with the state, but on the other at a point in their lives where it's easier to stay put than uproot, and are of an age for me to wanna be close. With me also being established in a job I like with some seniority and good bennies, the "how" of bailing out is rather problematic. A Hillary victory in November might have driven us all to the Real USA - at the moment, we're waiting to see what, if any, salvation begins to form come January 20. Being a firearms pro in CA makes me feel at times like a gay Jewish black guy in a 1939 Berlin bar, and yeah, that does get old.

    At any rate, drink a mug for me:

    Oh no, it was Nadia's long before I got ahold of it. They don't make them like that anymore. Its probably as old as I am.

    That's where I'm at too - it's going to be "tight" for a couple of years. The good news is that I don't have to make anywhere near the money I'm making in California living in Fl.

    They're out there. Unfortunately, I didn't start any kind of dancing until I was 40 years old - I don't have that kind of flexibility.. There are one or two I know of who look like they don't even have a backbone. A chap named Steven Eggers comes to mind.

    As for the grape leaves, the first time I tried Dolmades, I thought that was the worst thing I ever ate. But they grew on me, love 'em now!
