Shootin' Buddy and I are going to make another try for Cafe Pretenchou before the range. We'll show up an hour earlier and see if the line is shorter. The prize is an omelet called the "Julia", with jowl bacon from Goose the Market and Swiss cheese. Yum.
Then the range, which will probably not be too crowded on a rainy day with the mercury in the mid-forties.
I've had a T&E Leupold DeltaPoint sitting around and finally slapped it on the backup M&P9, just using the rear sight dovetail. If it works out, I'll either get the slide cut or look into getting one of the optics-ready ones that Smith's just released. If it doesn't, I'll just put another set of I-dots on this one, too.
