After two more range sessions were snowed/frozen out, my time back in my home town ran out. It was time to teach Jo how to disassemble her pistol and use her new cleaning kit. Meanwhile, I noticed the used holster in the gun case.
Pennsylvania allows open carry in most places and is very happy to issue concealed carry permits to law-abiding citizens. Jo has never worn this or any other gun, so I asked her to try it on for size and wear it around the house. Jo found a comfortable carry position and some day may even be comfortable enough to carry it loaded.

Let's Have a Summer Match in Arizona!
Jon, his co-worker, and I checked out the Cactus League's Thursday Night Match to get some Pistol Caliber Carbine practice for next month's Arizona State Sub-Gun Match.
Nine-millimeter carbines are a blast to shoot and are economical too! Lots of clubs let you shoot them on courses of fire designed for pistols (at least in my limited experience).
First off... we're shooting a match in Phoenix when it's still SUMMER? Well, it's at night. With a Mexican hurricane sputtering to the south, it's HUMID, and the recent rains have brought out mosquitoes, caterpillars, tiny frogs... we're convinced we didn't see any snakes because they couldn't slither further than a yard from their lair before gorging on tiny succulent desert life.
This being Phoenix, we got to see some National Champions strut their stuff. Local shooting celebrities. Good shooters I used to hang with when I did Cactus Matches monthly instead of annually. Worth a few mosquito bites!

Actually Sawmill Trail downstream from Beltzville State Park. Found two sets of these bound roses placed along the trail. Oh, to know the story...
Ye Olde Slate Quarry Pond.
I guess the bacteria count is too high for swimming but not too high for fishing on Lake Beltzville.
Ye Olde Covered Bridge at Beltzville SP.
Downstream from Beltzville Dam.
Falls along the trail.
You didn't think I'd take pics of actual Hooftytown itself, did you? Maybe next year....
