Was put up in a hotel for 6 days out of town for work, with co-workers that didn't want to leave their hotel room. According to them, the town was hyperviolent - but they also grew up in towns with 2.3K people in them, or were people who never question the news and think all of the violence from the larger metro nearbytown was actually coming from the town I was in. I went for a few couple mile walks and saw nothing suspect, just standard mid-size town problems when the sun was up - only had one person try to get money from me, and that was 79 cents to get a total of $3. Heck, the homeless folks there went to the Y for showers (it was free for them) and worked with calisthenics a block from the hotel. I'm sure the underbelly was everywhere, but it kept a distance, and I've found it does that in most metro areas that I've visited (but I also don't go out at 0200 for a burger)
Anyway, I had a lot of time to myself with no other responsibilities, so I dryfired like a mofo. Got the 'path' for my reloads much more refined, having watched a several hour movie while walking/sitting/standing and just reloading the whole time. Did wall drills when I woke up and when I went to bed, free style/strong hand/weak hand DA and SA. Did a bit of work on the draw. It felt good to do that again. Decided the P2000 no longer fills a role for me, and that I'd rather have a steel P226 for matches. Might snag another aluminum P226, currently debating those options now.
Got back into weightlifting on August 5th, last time I did it consistently was early April.

Bodyfat % is a bit higher, but that's to be expected when the only food options have drivethroughs and I can't cook.
You can't truly call yourself peaceful unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.
