last night, coughing this morning, I could really smell the what is it? cordite? in there on the range I was on. I shared the lane with that happy go lucky woman crazy about guns with the Baretta .380 I liked so much. I shot her new I forgot the's Hungarian I think it was a .38...she was breaking it in and me and another woman helped in doing so. I didn't like it at all. Those small guns feel like a cannon going off in my hands. I know I can get used to it though. It does have stopping power and that is what's most important in self defense situation. She's conceals it, in her pants, in her bra, under her arm and she showed me while we were standing there how she does. She's a "fluffy" woman so she has numerous hiding places. Picture one enlightened dog last night.

On the way into the range last night, I talked to the group founder, she had been dating one of the range instructor....the one who I said was good at instructing. Well, she told me that that's over after two wks.....he had anger issues and she knew he would blow up when she told him she didn't want to date anymore so she texted him that info and told me his reply was explosive. She also shared that she didn't have sex with him although he tried like hell. Gawd, what a nightmare....that's a big fear of mine to go with some guy like this. I read about all these guys going berserk when g/f or wives leave them, killing them or harming them in some way.

Anyway, the woman I shared a range with was looking at guns and I wanted her to find a Baretta similar to hers, they don't make that model anymore. The formerly dated range instructor was there and in casual conversation it came up that he was single, the woman who had told me was married to a cop, said she was too, and I kept my mouth closed because I didn't want to give him any ideas although he looked at me to say my status. Oh please, make him go away! The woman surprised me, she inferred that she has a male friend and that male friend is with benefits!!!!! Lord Almighty.....she's about 10 yrs younger than me I would think. The guy is fresh out of divorce and desperate for sex apparently.....i get this from the way he always offers up that he's single and wanting to date.

Gosh, I feel like an old fashioned dog wanting a one and only and not looking around for more. I exchanged info with the woman because I think she knows more about guns than I do and she has a cheery personality. Underneath all cheer is a food addict and pain, lots of it.

I don't like it that I'm coughing this morning from the fumes at this range though, makes me wonder if there is a meter I can wear to check exposure to dangerous metals. Hey tele, do you know?
