Well, a day late and a dollar short, but hope everyone had a wonderful bird day. I myself was blessed with the family being around the table and the best meal in the year. I could eat turkey, stuffin, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and cranberries most nights of the week.
Took my daughter shooting the day before Thanksgiving. I am sending her back to Dallas with my Ruger SR9c. She likes it, shoots it well. She gets both the short and long mags, practice ammo, and 2 boxes of Sig 9mm ammo for more serious purposes.
On November 29, 1934, two FBI agents intercepted Baby Face Nelson and another of his guys as they drove from Crystal Lake towards their hideout in Niles. There was a gunfight - right here in Barrington. Both FBI agents were killed, and Baby Face was mortally wounded and died a day or so later in Niles. Today my son and a couple of his friends did a re-enactment of that gunfight. He was one of the FBI guys who was killed. They had prop guns and blood when they went down. It was fun. Quite a few people turned out for the performance. Afterward there was some more info inside the field house and some refreshments. A stone had been commemorated to the gunfight in 1990 by the village. The actual gunfight kind of took place right were the re-enactment was done.
