    Y'all are thinking to simple. Betty, heres what you do.

    Figure out how long you've had that gun. Storage isn't cheap. I'd charge a dollar or two a day for storage, maintenance and exercise.

    Add it all up, and I'm sure your well over what the gun is worth.

    Then you call him up with YOUR price, and offer this great deal.
    He gives you the gun, and as a Christmas gift to him, you will forgive his debt to you. Then use the money you were going to spend on his gift to buy those grips.

    And everyone lives happily ever after.

    Tell him what you want. You're saving a gun of value from the pawn shop!

    Speaking of pawn shops....

    I have several guns that used to be my brother's. A friend of mine was quite amused when he watched us play swap n' shop on the living room floor.

    MY CZ75c used to be his. Traded for it.

    My 640 used to be his. I wanted it (he didn't know), it ended up at the pawn shop, and I bought it there.

    He traded for my Para C6.45 LDA. He later sold it.

    My Colt Mustang used to be his. He sold it to a friend, who sold it to me for the same price he paid for it. Batting my brown eyes helped.

    I traded for his Ruger Mark II, which my brother promptly whined about missing, so I gave it back to him the next Christmas. It ends up geting sold in the same pawn shop shortly after.

    I like dr_cmg's idea. I'm going to ponder it for a while.

    I like George's suggestion. Very good way to not feel bad, and help out your bro without him feeling it is charity.

    possession in 9/10.........

    You could just tell him he forfeited it since he didn't pay any storage fees.

    Has anyone stopped to consider the gun's best interest? I mean, it wants to be fired. Deserves to be fired. If your brother has so many guns that he doesn't have time to fire the Colt, then is should be in the hands of someone who will treat it right. You've already been caring for it, and we all know your going to shoot it.

    On a serious note, George's idea seems to be a great one.

    Well guys,

    I didn't get the Colt for Christmas.

    Some people enjoy having things, never use them, let them collect dust for years, and yet won't sell them to somebody who actually will use and appreciate them. But that's always been my brother, and it's his right to do whatever he wants with his property.

    I'm going to return the Colt to him and free up some space in my safe.
