Posted on 22 July 2014

Over-The-Road Travel Preparedness

Posted on 22 July 2014

As a retired police officer holding a LEOSA certification card that allows me to legally carry a concealed sidearm nationwide- except in federal buildings and on planes – I LIKE driving.

Presbyopia and Alternate Sighting Systems

Posted on 18 July 2014

I still have much better than average (that is, 20/20) vision at distance, and when I was a young man I had even better distance vision. I never needed glasses at all until the dreaded “P” thing happened, and I discovered it just as described above. Now in my early fifties, I am dependent on my reading glasses for much of my daily activities.

Glock 17 vs. Beretta 96FS-C; Decisions, Decisions…
