    Sad Day...

    Well, my mom checked online today and her CHL was finally issued by the great state of Texas. I officially can no longer carry her Ed Brown Kobra Carry since she'll be carrying now. I'm gonna miss that little guy...

    Give your mom a thumb up for me. As for you....I don't know what to tell you other than helping her find options so the little guy can find his way back into your hands. Maybe she'd go for a joint custody thing? Every other weekend? Good luck with it.

    Yeah, it's a funny story. She originally picked out an XDm, but wanted on in 9mm, so she put it on order and took her CHL with my Springfield Loaded 1911. She liked it so much she decided to get a 1911... she held everything in the case (we had to have stood there looking at 1911's for 2 hours) and nothing felt right. The clerk pulled out the Ed Brown and put it in my mom's hand and without even asking how much it cost she said, "I'll buy it, it's perfect." She's got the money, so it wasn't an issue and until her license was issued, she let me carry it... Oh well, my Springer was getting lonely anyway.

    There's a new stainless Kobra Carry for sale right here right now. Maybe Mom will buy you next year's Christmas present early!
