Went to the shooting range today, the last time for 2013. This year has really been bad for me as far as shooting. I've only gone a few times and haven't practiced with my carry gun nearly enough. All I can do is try to do better in 2014!

"NEW YORK -- Robert Abels, has been collecting and reconditioning old firearms for some time in his little shop on Lexington Avenue in New York. Among his collection are a 'Lady's Companion' easily concealable in her stocking, purse or bosom. A tiny three-inch revolver which, if fired at correct range, is just as fatal as a larger one. Mr. Abels says, Sarah Bernhardt packed a similar rod concealed in the false bottom of her cigarette case. The Firearms collection of Mr. Abels ranges from old fashioned Blunderbusses to a 'Chicago Squeezer', the latter used by gangsters in the 1880's. Here Mr. Abels aims an English grenade launcher used by the English Army about 1700." 12/16/46
