Aww, such a proud parent! Did you trade in the .40 on this one?
May 23rd, 2007 09:00 AM
Nope, the .40 is still at the 'smith and I'll be keeping the .40. I decided I wanted a good, high caliber, concealable gun that I could always have as a backup should something happen to my primary.

Do I detect a bit of maternal spoiling with the TLC?? I think so .
Lucky lil Ultra!!!

NOTHING! Every shot I took flew true. I got good groups. It felt wonderful and performed BEAUTIFULLY!
I was very impressed and happy!

Maybe it's the amateur psychologist in me but I read a lot between the lines when people anthromorphasize 'stuff'.
My guns and knives are my tools, even something as personal as a guitar has always been just a piece of wood.
My dogs however are fully fledged furry humans, my babies.
I don't want kids, and will not have any. I am happy with my adopted 'kids'.
Nice gun, I trust you will look after each other.

I do agree. Stuff is stuff is stuff, however, I'll be the first to admit that I get attached to CERTAIN stuff.

$740 might not be much for some people but that's more than three weeks worth of work for me and that's if I put every dime into the purchase. With bills and rent and savings and what-not, it's well over two months if not three before I can have that kind of spare change. If it took me more than three months to work for it and save for it, I'm sure going to treat it like the three months of my working life it represents!
I also learned a GREAT trick in college. If you name every thing you own and treat it like a human being and make yourself look almost crazily connected to those inanimate objects, if anyone asks you to borrow anything they will treat it with up-most respect and usually bring it back in a timely and intact manner (they fear you might mourn for a month and attack them in their sleep for loosing or breaking it).
I had a lamp named E.T. and a stapler named Alvin and many many other things. I came away from college with all of my stuff intact and well cared for, even the things I lent out.

I used to view it that way, then I became a dad....
