    Well, as someone in a wheelchair (learning to walk all over again), I pretty much LIVE in athletic shorts of one type or another. :doh:

    Been there, done that. Got the.......and the..... etc., etc. If ya was closer, I'd be happy to come over and show off the bad habits I re-learned. :evil:

    After having been 'scripted a KAFO (Knee Ankle Foot Orthotic), a device that puts a mechanical exoskeleton on your lower extremity from the foot and ankle to the crotch area, I learned that wearing shorts, of almost any kind, make it a whole lot easier to put on, and wear said device. It also tends to rip up, cut up, and generally destroy, whatever long pant I might wear with it overall. After never having been a shorts person before, there was a major curve in the apparel and lifestyle change to go with it that just carried over to everyday wear. And though I don't where it all the time, it is "highly recommended" that I do. Read as," Doc. says...." And just as soon as all the kinks are worked out with it and fixed, I will. Mostly.

    So, while I'm normally in pull-on type shorts at the house, going off property requires me to be in a belted short of some kind 99.9999% of the time. And those are normally some type of cargo short. There is almost always a pair of those with a belt already on them, so it's nothing much more than pulling them on. Having it/them pre-staged as such, means I can throw whatever I need to in my pocket(s) or on the belt and go do what needs doin'.

    One you might check out is the S&W PD351 .22mag revolver.
    It is made of alloy and very lightweight.
    Seven shot D/A
    Rock solid little gun.
    The Moonpie haz one. You're welcome to try it next range day get together if you like.

    Bought one new. Fired 9 rounds before the trigger pin broke. Taurus took a month to repair. Sold it after testing. Just did not trust it.
