    Default First Kill of the Season!!....and it was a double!!!

    Here's the story....

    I stepped outside last night at about 10 to see what all the ruckus was about.... turned out to be several hundred gulls... up in the air ... yup gulls.... like seagulls but I think they call them Mewgulls in the Interior.

    Anyway... While I was distracted by the gulls, the first one made his move....I felt the slight brush of silence on the back of my neck.... but... having the reflexes of an experienced Alaskan, I got him. Well, I think that started the war because then another one lit just below my left ear.... Now,...I had hand surgery on my left hand a week ago and still have stitches in my palm so I was at a disadvantage but once again, instinct took over. I was able to dispatch the attacker without injuring myself any further.

    I was able to survive this DLP due to experience and quick thinking. I wasn't wearing any protection. For you less experienced, I suggest a heavy layer of DEET. But, I fear my success will come at a cost. I am sure to be the target of more attacks this summer as many of you will.

    May God be with us all as we enter into this battle one more year...

    peace out

    What caliber handgun you do recommend?

    What jacket should I wear?

    What unit has the highest bag limits and ease of opportunity?

    Are these road accessible????

    Better get that one on the left checked out. Looks like B&C material!
