Everything Else / My Dad passed

Dad passed away this morning after a 2 month battle with what we believe was a cancer of some sort. Dad got to weak and to fast for any kind of testing. He was roughly 5 months passed his 90th birthday. I am going to miss him greatly.

Had a Sherpa holster a while back. I gave it away.

Thanks pop pop. I watched the video and saved their website. I'll be looking into another gun belt after the holidays. Just to be sure I STILL have the same measurements if you know what I mean.  ;D

Handguns & Holsters / Gun Belt
« Last post by pop pop on December 21, 2017, 11:01:34 AM »
I just received my 30.00 dollar gun belt today. "I highly recommend them." The one I got was a 1 1/2" wide and 1/4" thick. I measured the thickness and it is every bit of 1/4" wide except for a couple places are close. I ordered the black creased design. It has a heavy silver roller belt buckle which one needs when using thick belts.

I ordered 2, so I could get them shipped free(sale for now), but the millennial that took my order somehow missed the 2 in the order. I just ordered another, but I am going to try the 1 3/4 in wide belt. The one I received runs the size of my trouser waist. I ordered one a couple inches longer, but didn't need too.

If in need of a heavy belt, these are worth the money, IMO.  Just don't expect to wear it with a tux.

Google their website below. You may need to copy and paste it, on google, to get their site to work.

A good point, Steve. Given the modularity of the P320, they could just swap out the lower or slide and take their time fixing the internals. I think if I were a line solder with one, though, I'd still look into what it took to get a covered holster. BUT--the pistol is a second-line and sometimes last-resort weapon for everybody except MP and (sometimes) Special Operations, so that may not be important as far as the masses go.

You're probably correct, Richard.
To your thoughts, I'll add that the modern, mostly plastic pistol is so much less expensive to repair or replace that getting it dinged up...or even broken...is of (relatively) little concern.
98
Well, it's not needed for retention any more, so that's one thing. I think they're probably more confident of the pistol's ability to handle the sand and the mud and the snow and the ______ than I would be if I was somebody that might have to go to ground with it on. It's also maybe easier to change the mounting and positioning if you don't have to worry about a flap as well. Just guessing on some of this.
99
...And, both the design and the method of manufacture are interesting and innovative.
Even the material it's made of is innovative and interesting.

Another item to note: Modern military holsters seem to no longer need a protective flap. I wonder why.

Everything Else / Re: Exercise

I have 2 long and strong elastic type strips that I was given, for physical therapy, previously. I lay on my back and push outward, under pressure, while flexing my knee as far as I can. It is a sort of deep knee bend, but laying down on my back. I find the flexing is good for my knee. With bad knees, I can no longer do deep knee bends in the normal way. I do this, 2 times per day(25 reps), on my off days from the stationary bike (30 min), and tread mill (15 min) which is every other day. I own the bike and tread mill and they are here at my home. 

As I stated earlier, I am unable to do much serious walking, but do manage to get in 15 minutes at 3.2 mph. That is as fast as my knee will allow me to walk without much pain. I am hoping I can get the knee surgery done before the March date so I am working hard.

I have really noticed a big difference in my ability to rise from a sitting position. I will say I am pushing the exercise as far as I can without suffering greatly the next day. I have only been doing this, in earnest, for almost 3 weeks and have already noticed a difference.

Just do what you can, and try and push yourself, a little bit, daily. That is what I am doing but must be careful with it. I started doing this every day, but had to back off as I was in constant pain afterwards. I noticed the day off from the machines gives my muscles time to recharge.  Just do the flexing on off days from the machines.
