Another new experience - my concealed handgun permit has expired. Ted & I did our original class togehter, but mine has expired before his. Renewal involves a lot of paperwork, fingerprints, re-testing, and re-qualifying with a handgun. Ted is in North Dakota so I had to find a gun and practice without him (something I've never done). The gun kept jamming, so I changed clips, then ammo, then oiled it - with no better results. The next step was to go to the safe and shop for another pistol. I looked like I was trying on shoes - not this one - don't like these sights - this one is too heavy - doesn't fit my hand - where are the bullets for this one ----- until I found the right fit and went to practice again. I passed the test with flying colors and scored very high on the range. Whew! And I did it all without my armor bearer!
