August is know to be a month of despair for New England fisherman, and for good reason. This month the water temps have soared to 77 degrees in the mornings, and probably well into the 80s in the afternoon. Warm water has less ability to hold oxygen, so fish may become lethargic, die, or move on. The clam beds down here have been shut down for quite a while due to Vibrio bacteria which causes gastrointestinal problems if you get hit with it, no thanks! With all the doom and gloom I am pleased to say fishing is quite good and I have been getting out.

The other day it rained. What better way to pass a rainy day by than to go gun shopping. I was looking at getting a 20 ga for small game hunting when a pistol caught my eye. I asked the guy behind the counter to check it out and 30 minutes latter I was the proud owner of a Glock 17 Gen 4 with NIGHT SIGHTS! The gun empty weighs in at under 2 pounds. I got 3, 17 round magazines with the gun. The Tritium nights sights are fantastic and stand right out in the dark. I always wanted to own a Glock and now i can check that one off my list.
