Cancealed gun class

Took class passed $175. Like teacher alot. The class was at Digsby

  • @ denise....

    LOL......that's because most guys in a classroom setting are too busy trying to convince themselves and the instructor what they already know.

    Typically, women are simply better listeners, and have better control of ego.

    LOL......that's because most guys in a classroom setting are too busy trying to convince themselves and the instructor what they already know.

    Typically, women are simply better listeners, and have better control of ego.

    Wanted to correct a little technical error in nomenclature. "22mm and 38mm"

    That should be ".22" and ".38" (or .380) those particular calibers are expressed in inches and are not metric, say like "9mm" which is a caliber expressed in its metric dimension.

    The reason your instructor suggested .22 is probably obvious to you now that you've taken the class, and that is low-recoil. .22 is easy to shoot because of this, and folks usually have a better time with accuracy and shot placement especially during the marksmanship qualification component of the class.

    It can be easily argued that while .22 is easy to shoot, it is (in my humble opinion) an extremely poor choice for self-defense. I hope this was covered in your class.

    .38 and .380 have much higher lethality rates ("stopping power") and are often suggested for shooters with less arm/wrist strength.

    The fact that you demonstrated proficiency in this caliber during your qualification is EXCELLENT!

    good for you, Denise!

    practice often, remember those gun safety rules always and stay safe!

Comcast Outage

So we're going on 2 days without Comcast service. We're new to Bridgeport and previously only had very short and rare outages. Is this typical for Comcast here? Comcast also told me that the whole neighborhood is out, which is weird since I'm able to jump on some business' xfinity share right now. Does anyone know what the issue is and why it's taking so long? (Naturally, Comcast has no information except that they're working on it.)

  • Everett Block EveryBlock Team Captain

    If you continue to have any Comcast service questions, this page is a good resource to check out: http://customer.comcast.com/help-and-support/account/ways-to-get-help/

  • Our house is in the 3200 block of Lituanica. Here, the Comcast signal is intermittent in wet weather. Line workers and techs have been to the house 6 times in the past three years. Reason for the trouble is always something new or yet another "failing" Comcast router. The phone calls, service calls and follow up calls from the line workers once they have checked the main line are becoming tedious. When a comparable or better option comes along we will make the switch.

Strays near Donovan Park

Around 5:15 today spotted two strays running together near the park. One is a German Shepard and the other was a smaller fawn colored dog. They appeared to be in good shape but were too far away for me to see if they were wearing tags.

Ten Thousand Ripples Art & Peace Workshop

The Chicago Park District and Changing Worlds will present Symbols of Culture, Symbols of Peace, an Art and Peace Workshop, Saturday, October 25th, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, at McGuane Park, 2901 S. Poplar. Join neighbors and friends for a morning of art and peace making activities. Learn about the Ten Thousand Ripples Buddha sculptures in Palmisano Park and work with award-winning artist, Indira Johnson, to create your own symbol of peace. This event is free and open to residents of all ages. The Ten Thousand Ripples exhibit was installed at Palmisano Park in August where it will remain until next summer.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    It just occurred to me... those sculptures will either stop the sledding this winter or make it more dangerous. This is very interesting. I am conflicted about the sledding at Palmisano. It looks so dangerous, what with the bottom of the hill leading to a wall. On the other hand, as a kid I loved sledding so much, and would hate to deprive any child of that experience.

  • R.

    I've sled down it many times and let me say that the fun far outweighs the danger. I haven't seen anyone get injured in the times I've been there, though the sledder has to mind any pedestrians passing by. Sad news if the sculptures interfere this winter, but I suspect folks will just spend more time sledding down the other side.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    I grew up in west Michigan where we had dunes and some of the dunes even had rope lifts. So my idea of sledding is possibly a little safer in some ways, and much more dangerous in others!

Falcon

Saw a falcon catch a sparrow on our deck today. Hadn't seen one so close before.

    We have nesting cardinals and mourning doves in our yard. We occasionally see red-tailed hawks. Mr. Woodpecker (red comb, and all) shows up for a few weeks every spring.

  • jim m bridgeport resident 14 years

    We have a thistle feeder. Fewer goldfinches have showed up this year than last. Mourning doves eat what falls to the ground. Haven't seen the falcons (I think what we saw were actually kestrels) in the tree across the alley since spring.
