    Wife got me a new gun

    Many years back I traded my Ruger Blackhawk (blue) as payment for a Brolin 1911 in 45ACP. The Brolin was the worst gun I ever owned and later I traded it for a Ruger P97. I sold the P97 to a friend who loves it.

    I've always regretted letting go of the Blackhawk.

    Today I had to drop a package off at my LGS. My wife went in with me and saw the Blackhawk in Stainless in the counter. She told my friend we'd be back Tuesday for it when they reopen.

    I got me a good lady.

    Good women never cease to surprise their husbands (sometimes we don't realize how good we have it)...you're a lucky guy!

    She got any sisters.
    All I get from my wife when the mere mention of a new gun pops up is a dirty look and something about a door not hitting me on the way out.

    You got a keeper, ya lucky dog!

    I would roll over and die if my wife even considered buying me a gun...
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    Don't be surprised if you see a few new shoe boxes or bags of clothes in the corner of the closet Tuesday evening...
