Triple K is a good company. As I recall, we carried some of those in our shop.

I was lucky to find a leather shop and a very talented artisan in my small town of about a thousand souls. Does great work and I can't complain. Prices were fair for the work he put into the pieces.

OA, I am glad to see you this morning and have a blessed day.
Please do th' same, Seeker22...

Talked ta th' fine folks there at Triple K, an' they're one o' th' few leather holster makers still here in th' US...
They sell ta Ruger's Shoppe, as well as others...

Fer those that use Ruger revolvers, if'n ya need smoother workin's, go ta Wolff Gun Springs, an' replace yer trigger an' hammer springs... Also, see about gettin' hammer shims. All three'll do ya a world o' good. If ya got th' right tools, an' dexterity, smooth an' polish yer gun's inards... Slick's up th' action, somethin' fierce... If'n ya know somebody that kin spray on finest machine grade teflon, that'll also make 'er slicker... Do all that, an that's what Ruger Custom Shop does...

When yer life hangs in the balance, nothin' like guns that work ever' time...

All a part o' preppin'. Now ya other folks, they's auto carryin', pitch in, an' share yer secrets fer stayin' alive, mechanical wise... Ain't no excuse fer dyin' wi' a busted gun...

Good Luck, Y'all

Since I stopped "drinkin" booze an' beer, eat only meat an' uncooked veggies, I no longer need insulin. Lost 20lbs in last three weeks, but am still butt ugly... Slightly skinnier Uncle Fester, an' slightly less crotchety, ta boot... Ain't never bin no "chick magnet," but somebody's gotta be comic relief...

Say, ladies, that there Fabio fella from Italy, he's now a card carryin' 'publican, conservative... He don't care what Hollywierd says 'er thinks... Din't y'all think he wuz some kind o' wonderful, years back?

Me, not bein' from Kalifornia, thinks' wimmin is God's greatest art work. Shucks 'e took longer on y'all, than us... That says somethin', don't it?

The idea that this virus originated spontaneously because it is from an exotic place is based largely on the propaganda we have learned about China. I have difficulty with the idea. Why?
Wuhan has been inhabited for 3,500 years. Think on that. It is a major . . . major metropolitan city.
Or that the virus came from eating infected bats. While we may find eating bats disgusting, in Wuhan, bats are a cultural delicacy which means they have been eating bats for a long, long time.
It is not like they are some barbarian hoard, sitting around on hard scrabble floors, snatching up every available creepy crawly thing to consume in order to meet the minimum daily requirement of protein needed for survival.
Did you see the pic of the bullet trains lined up one after the other, and the number of airline flights, and the number of people taking cruises to every single part of the world and the number of students who call Wuhan home attending every college and university on the planet or the semiconductor clean rooms?
Wuhan is New York . . . on steroids.
So sure, someone ate a bat and got the coronavirus.
You go right ahead and believe that.

Trump: I'm sick and tired of China cheating, stealing, and lying. Got anything just laying around here for them to steal?

Just Google "sexy male nurse." Was gonna post an image, but none of the fellers are ripe yet. I don't support kiddie porn.

Cured means 'virus free', not feeling better.
I'd like to think that's what it means, but given how unwilling they have been to test people, and how unreliable the test is in the first place, I have to wonder if the "recovered" cases they have are truly recovered 100%, and not able to infect those around them. We know the Chinese have been fudging numbers. We know their medical facilities are strained to the limit. We know that the virus can be shed through feces as well as airborne. So, yeah, I question their definition of "cured". Wouldn't you?

Not really... not at this time. Maybe later when the system is overwhelmed, but not right now. However, that doesn't mean that one cannot be re-infected... like catching the cold more than once per season due to mutation of the corona virus.

I have no doubt there are thousands. Told my family not to expect honest numbers for the next couple years. It's all about the panic.

The following may be woo, but from what we see regarding Chinese numbers

NOTE: No one else reporting this yet! This may be a hoax.

BREAKING NEWS: Six coronavirus cases confirmed in Wilmington

Five Americans and one Chinese have tested positive for coronavirus in Wilmington, North Carolina, authorities have said in a statement.

According to the statement, Five people became ill after coming into contact with a Chinese colleague who was visiting from Shanghai and had recently been in Wuhan, the epicentre of the outbreak.

Authorities say the Chinese is still not showing symptoms of the virus despite testing positive and that is why border control did not notice.

The six have been admitted at an undisclosed health facility and are staying in an isolation ward.

I get so tired of lazy reporting. Dates of initial contact are extremely important, especially when you have an asymptomatic spreader. I, for one, would like to know how long this individual has been spreading the virus.

Through the eyes of a reporter who has worked in over 30 epidemic zones, including SARS in China and Ebola in West Africa, just how big a threat is the current coronavirus outbreak?

How can coronavirus be transmitted? How virulent is it, and how does it compare with SARS and MERS, and the 1918 influenza pandemic?

How has the Chinese Communist Party cover-up of information contributed to the spread of coronavirus in Wuhan and beyond? And, what are the best precautions to avoid infection?

This is American Thought Leaders , and I’m Jan Jekielek. In this episode, we'll sit down with Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer Laurie Garrett, an expert on epidemics and currently, a columnist for Foreign Policy.

She breaks down the current COVID-19 outbreak, preventative measures, and why she will be looking closely at Singapore and Hong Kong in the coming weeks to determine if this will develop into a global pandemic.
