Breaking news: Perry Hall high school has a shooting in the cafeteria on the first day of the year.

This has JUST hit the news (and I'm told it's already gone national):

School shooting at Perry Hall High

I truly hope the victim is alright, though they flew him/her to Shock Trauma so it sounds quite serious. They're evacuating the school, and parents can pick up their kids in the shopping center across the street. Local folks: if you know parents with students at the school, please make sure they know this information.

UPDATE: There are THREE evac sites: Perry Hall Shopping Center; the Middle School across the street; Joppa View Elementary. PLEASE get in touch with your child/ren and figure out where he/she/they are.

UPDATE: Honeygo Park is also being used as an evac site.

Got another couple of newbies lined up for range time.

I'm excited about this one. A dear friend has been talking about it since she moved into her condo, and now her guyfriend wants to come along. She's asking all the right questions. She's never handled a firearm before, so this should be a treat. Not sure about him - will suss out the important info beforehand regarding his history with firearms.

Should be happening in about 3-4 weeks, and I hope to get a post up shortly after (with their permission, of course).

An idea.

As part of my birthday present, Chris gave me a 1911-ish watergun, complete with removable magazines.

I'm considering using this as part of my basic firearm introduction for friends who have interest but aren't quite sure about guns. It doesn't have any safeties and the slide doesn't move, but the removable mag is a nifty feature that I'm thinking could be useful.

What say you?

So, I'm home.

Thanks for the well-wishes. I'm gonna go focus on post-op recovery.

I have some of the worst luck, I swear.

So Chris and I were planning on going up to NH for Jay's shooty event, but my body had other plans. I'm still at the hospital, and will probably be here well into next week. FML.

Hope everyone has fun. Really wish i didn't have to keep sitting things out. :(

Hitting the "mark all as read" button today.

Am spending some time in a hospital room for the immediate future. If there's anything I'm missing that I absolutely need to see, please let me know. Otherwise I'm going to work on getting out of here.
