Before I gave it to my son and bought my Baretta PX4 Storm .40 (14-round mags), the XD .45 I carried held 13-round mags.
As a pistol instructor I tell my students, "In a stress situation you are only going to be half as good as your worst day on the range due to adrenalin and understandable stress. Practice, practice, practice." Also, in response to others comments: never, ever point your firearm at anything you do not intent to shoot.
Careful what you ask for. ALL of us have a genetic defect of some type. If both parents are dark headed and dark eyed, and the baby has blonde hair and blue eyes, that is a genetic defect. If a child is born with a mole, that is a genetic defect. Skin tags? Same thing. So, where do you draw the line? All red heads are genetic defects so they must be aborted or killed? The child is missing a toe, the hair is curly and should be straight, or straight and it should be curly? What's next? Kill all babies (and adults) that do not have blonde hair and blue eyes? Kill all those with the genetic defect of being Jewish, or Muslim, or Christian?
Hmmm - I think Obama already has someone in mind for the post: Wesley Mouch. Directive 10-289 anyone?
Locally we refer to the Orlando Sentinel as "The Slantinel" as it has been heavily slanted to the left since we moved here in 1986. I am out-of-this-world surprised that they are endorsing a conservative. Perhaps they see the writing on the wall, and are preparing for the conservative reassertion in this area. But, then again, I think (but not positive) they also endorsed ding-bat, looney-tunes Alan Grayson (running again for US Congress).

I believe John Wayne is credited with this: "Life is tough. Life is tougher if you're stupid."
COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number? ABBOTT: Two ways is correct. COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job? ABBOTT: Correct. COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job? ABBOTT: Bingo. COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking for work. ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an economist. COSTELLO: But I don't even know what I just said! ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like a politician.
COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!! ABBOTT: No, you miss my point. COSTELLO: What point? ABBOTT: Someone who doesn't look for work can't be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn't be fair. COSTELLO: To whom? ABBOTT: The unemployed. COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work. ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed. COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment rolls, which would count as less unemployment? ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely! COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for work? ABBOTT: Absolutely...
"Unemployment" As explained by Bud Abbott & Lou Costello COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America. ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It's 9%. COSTELLO: That many people are out of work? ABBOTT: No, that's 16%. COSTELLO: You just said 9%. ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed. COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work. ABBOTT: No, that's 16%. COSTELLO: Okay, so it's 16% unemployed. ABBOTT: No, that's 9%... COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%? ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work. COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed. ABBOTT: No, you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed. (con't)
