    Just went in to browse

    My situational awareness failed me today fellas. I went into the local gunshop just to "browse", little did I know the danger that was coming.

    Suddenly I spotted the Springfield Armory GI 1911 in stainless with those pretty wood grips, than my eyes darted over to a 2+1/4 barrel Ruger sp101.....

    To make a long story short I took both home and I'm pretty sure when the wife gets home she will shoot me with one or the other.

    The 125-grain .357 magnum and the .45 ACP are the top two manstoppers on the street.

    When your wife gets home, you, Sir, are in trouble.


    But if you somehow live to read this, congrats!

    Congrats.

    Just tell her your neighbor Clemenza gave them to you wrapped in sheets. Then bring her a nice Pear and she'll be happy.

    Oh, I forgot....DO NOT have a baby boy and name him Fredo..!

    LIE. Tell her that the Ruger was a gift for her! Don't mention the Springfield for a day or 2 then tell her you have had it for years. And then ask her how she likes her (your) new Ruger anyhow?

    Honey, I had a black out spell, and when I regained consciousness I had a bag with these in it.

    She knew what you were up to and took the camera to the pawn shop. Hope the dog doesn't mind company!

    Stand up like a man and let her know who's boss in the house.


    Then beg for forgiveness and swear it will never happen again, while she's swinging the frying pan at you!


    BTW, nice finds.
