I have walked around town (pop 60k) all week with my MAGA hat on.
Not one negative look or comment, but I have had total strangers compliment.
Pretty much the same response with my NRA cover.
Here in central Cal we are very conservative, except for some of the school teachers/staff, as you would expect due to their colleges.

Winter load

What I carry when it's cold.

New Shooter

I went to our local indoor range this morning to shake the rust off.
In the next stall was a young lady with her dad and husband.
As I looked over at their target (7-8yds) I could see it looked more like a pattern, all over the paper and she was kinda left out of the rotation.
I invited her to try my Kimber and she looked at her husband, who nodded OK.
I asked her a few questions about the four rules and she answered them right.
I loaded and handed her the gun with the slide locked back and she did not know how to release it or where the safety was. We went over the functions and some tips on correcting her stance, grip, and sight picture.
Ran a target out to 10-12 yds and she pushed the first mag to the left, but in a nice group.
We corrected her jerk and finger pad as I watched if she was flinching.
Next mag were all in the head nice and tight.
Out to 15yds, still in the head.
Tried the CZ-75 and they were all in the black.
I think we have a shooter.

Shooting in the fog

We went to Tulare Trap Club this morning in a dense fog.
17 miles at 35mph and that was too fast.
If you don't pull the trigger as soon as it leaves the house it's lost.
After three rounds, we headed home and halfway there it was blue skies....funny how that works.
