We Get By With A Little Help From Our Friends...

What he said.

I haven't know Tam as long as Matt G. (no relation); I've been reading her, well, forever, and got a chance to meet her earlier this year when she was house-sitting at Castle Frostbite. Tam even had some nice things to say about your humble host, despite me doing my usual impression of a hummingbird high on crack. I then had the further pleasure of her company in Colorado last month, where I even got to shoot along side her for a bit (and she had the utmost in grace to not laugh hysterically at my pitiful attempts...)

She's a good person, and she's going through a tough time. I'd consider it a personal favor if you could stop over and drop a little something in her tip jar - I know I've asked for a lot recently, and I really appreciate it. Tell you what - I'll even pull the kilt out of mothballs for specific requests if that'll get you to help my friend out. I'm happy to do what little I can, even if it means another round on the swingset... ;)

In any case, please keep Tam in your thoughts and prayers at this rough time. 

That is all.

UPDATE:

Rimfire Designs is raffling off grips to raise money to help Tam.

For $5 you get a chance to win a sweet pair of custom grips for a 1911 or a Hi-Power. I've got both (reviews forthcoming, honest!) and they are very nice indeed. This is a nice thing he's doing.

In fact, I may dig into my own pile 'o' gear for something similar...

Praying for Tam! Proves the Sun is a Democrat. Pretends to be our friend, but will shaft us good at the slighest opportunity!

If I gave in response to Matt G's request rather than yours, can I still add my donation to the pool for "please _don't_ pull the kilt out of mothballs...at least until it's time for KTKC again"? :)

It depends. Would avoiding a really frightening shot tempt you to give more? :)

(Seriously, thank you)

John B: Thank you. Nothing says "we care" like political partisanship.

(Sorry Jay, but Tam's plight hits close to home. Feel free to moderate as needed.)

Because Tam is more important than ammo, she got this month's ammo fund, small as it is.
