    My wife surprised me

    Went to Sportsmans today to look at the guns etc. And I was looking at a Ruger SP101, comparing the different models and such and I decided I liked the 2 1/4in 357 with the spurless hammer best, when my wife pipes up behind me stating: "We'll take it" I turn and looked at her and she says: "Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas" I was shocked, next thing I knew, I was filling out paper work and she walks up with a pair of hogue grips. I think she knows me too good. Now before you start yelling were's the pics, I have a daughter and she has the camera. But it looks like this:

    My wife, I guess I'll have to keep her.

    I guess you're going to have to buy diamonds for Christmas now.

    Why? She said we'll take it; you should have bought two!

    You got a keeper there. I mean the wife! Hey nice revolver choice too.

    Nice gun.

    I once got a gun for my wife. My father-in-law said "Nice trade".

    Congrats, sounds like you got a good one(wife & gun).

    My wife would be exactly the same if we had the money.
