M&P®45 SHIELD M2.0™ Small size, big bullet, quite concealable....

I’m easily distracted. My plan was to gather my notes and write this evening, but I played the movie Monster Island in the background, got to the point where they found that the giant starfish had magma for blood and could not, would not, look away.
