Texas Readers-

Aaron at Weapon Blog is asking you contact your elected officials regarding HB 2756 (Open Carry).

For the Ladies

As a brother and a fan of ladies in general, I'd like to see them stick around.

Shooting Diva's has released a free pdf download of the Diva Defense Guide.  It's a great little primer on where to start, and packed full of useful tips.

Pass it along to the important women in your life.

M&P40 Review

From Robb Allen over at Guns, Holsters, and Gear.  It looks like Robb drank the Kool-Aid, and found it quite tasty.  More than a few chuckles, and a great review of a popular product.

His findings are pretty much right on line with what I've found with my M&P9, although I haven't had any issues with the sights (mine has night sights) and I have the thumb rests (er, "external safeties") to prevent me from inducing a slide lock failure (the key reason for switching from the SP2022 to the M&P.)

I should be slightly offended by how he describes the grip sizes though... I use the  ‘Wow, can you palm a basketball with those meat-hooks?’ size, but my hands aren't that big... just my palms.  My fingers aren't that long, but the added bulk of the Large grip fills my palm nicely (much like the arched mainspring housing on 1911s.)
