Now I play ukes, this is one like my best, I've got five.....

The only amps I have left are the Champ and a small late model Fender, also sold a Tele and a couple archtop Gibsons. All I have left are some Taylor's a my retirement Martin, the wife would like a uke!

Great thread, guns, guitars, harmonica, vocals, and electronics.
Great shooting and beautiful pistols again ma'am.
Your range report would be very welcome over yonder. We do have a forum for "other" firearms.

We do have a good range of talent in this small group. I think my talent is beer taster.

The archtop Gibsons are classic, but you're sure fine with the Martin and Taylors.

Does your wife play guitar? She could try a baritone uke, the largest size, since it's tuned like the higher four guitar strings DGBE. Still sounds more like a guitar than a uke, though. The other sizes are normally gCEA. I play the next to smallest "concert" size. No wound strings, and gives me more finger room than the little soprano ukes.

People would never guess how expensive ukes can get; Martin's best is over 5K..........I have two $ 90 nato wood ukes that play and sound just fine; my best was $ 250 for laminated koa. Solid koa gets $ 500 up.

Give me the mandolin accompanied by the cello with an Angelic voice like Alison Krauss. Food for the soul.

NCG: I fell in love with the Sig P938 and before I could stop I had bought three of them.
My favorite is the engraved one. I carry it all of the time now using an inside waist holster.

Hey, KL. Love the new avatar. Beautiful.

My P938 is the plain jane ugly black RBG with the rubber finger groove grips and extended mag, but that grip and mag really help with the shooting. Might add a prettier one at some time for the sake of making a fashion statement. For now, this one makes a statement of its own. I am WAY more accurate with this thing than with my J frame 38.

NCG, That picture was taken in the mid 80's at my son's wedding.
I for one would like to go back to those years.
We have changed a bit since then.
I too have one of the black 938's with the same grips you have.
The one I carry has the red grips with a silver Sig emblem in the center.
It is a beauty. I might give one of the 938's to my shooting buddy as a christmas present.
He is always so generous to stop by my house and pick me up for the weekly range visit, and he never asks for any gas money.
He also makes the 128 grain 357's for my Coonan, but I pay for the parts.
As to the carry of the 938, I like it because it fits so well in the small of my back.
I can hardly tell it is there. I'm have lived in the city for the past 20 years and since all of the shooting I carry frequently.
CC is not one of my favorite things to do, but with all of the trouble I know when to carry if in certain parts of the city.

Don't blame you a bit for carrying so much in the big city, KL. Not having to constantly carry is a big plus for living where we do, now. About as low a crime rate as it gets, here. It was one of the big reasons we got out of Milwaukee to retire. We lived in a lovely suburb, but, even so, had gangs drive down our very street shooting from cars.

OOOOH! Now that shooting from a vehicle would not sit well with me. I suspect I would have to retaliate by waiting in the bushes with something I could "return to sender' with.

Yeah, hearing gunshots was a fairly common thing, 24/7, and not talking about a shooting range, either. Our neighborhood was very nice, but only half a mile form some really nasty ones.

We have someone just a thousand yards away that lights off fire crackers year round. Some times it's gunfire but they are home owners and their place is situated so they can shoot on their property. The county law allows for shooting on your property as long as it is safe. Sad to say my property isn't setup for shooting anything except air guns.
