High Five – May 8th, 2017

Five things that I’m really digging right now, and thought I’d share:

1. Martin Dingman Old Row Penny Loafer from Onward Reserve: Talk about a versatile loafer, Martin Dingman knocked it out of the park with these.  Available at Onward Reserve, they are just the right balance of ‘dress’ and ‘I’ll have another beer’.  It’ll be hard to justify socks with these.

2. ‘King Bob’ T-shirt from Kevin’s:  As I’m always on the lookout for great t-shirts, I immediately gave my money to Kevin’s for this one.  The light blue is a nice touch.  I plan on wearing this one out prior to the upcoming season.

3. Glock 43: I recently got my hands on this bad boy when bumming around at Gander Mountain.  It’s awesome – perfect for concealed carry.  Officially on the list.

4. Upland and Downstream Dog Collars: I’m ready to upgrade collars for #FrankDawg and #GoldieGirl, and the Upland and Downstream seem just about right.  Handmade, very handsome, and a few options with waxed cotton.

5. “Crazy for Quail” by T. Edward Nickens for Garden & Gun:  I love this article.  I had a great discussion with a buddy of mine around ‘if you won $100M in the lottery, what would you do?’.  Obviously I have a very detailed plan ready to execute (which may be a future post of it’s own), but it does include buying a plantation and applying the wild bird principles talked about in this article.  Absolutely fascinating.

    I think the M&P Shield is a better option than the Glock 43. It can be found for MUCH less (like, $100+ less), comes with two different sized magazines, one which holds 7 rounds and other which holds 8 (compared to 6 rounds for the Glock 43 mag), it can be purchased with or without a manual safety, and, from what I have read, the ergonomics are better and is more comfortable to shoot than the Glock.

    Get the Glock 26. The 26 is a hair larger than the 43. 43 is a single stack where as the 26 is a double stack.  Mag for a 26 hold 10 however you can run full sized mags through them. Including the 33 rounder.

    Solid list.  Besides the t-shirt, any plans to actually get anything?  I hear Gander is going out of business, maybe pick up the G43 at a mark down.
