    It took me 11 years... and cost me dearly...

    ...to train the Wife. Yesterday was our 11th anniversary. The 11th is Steel so...

    So she surprised me with one of these (the .22 LR version) Henry Golden Boy which she had seen me handle one time at the Gun Store and just happened to remember that fact. I think since it was so shinney Brass she could pick it back out...







    And I surprised her with this....
































    I guess I "won" but at what cost?

    ... and broke!

    Ah well.... when you get old and all things are paid off you gotta have your fun before you kick the bucket. Not gonna worry about.

    I am very popular with the Wives right now... but I am probably very much in danger of the Guys beating me up. I probably will lay low for a while!

    Wow all of that is exciting.

    Occasionally I do something to build up "points" with my wife, though I notice that my point totals steadily expire.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Ya'll want me to delete it?

    But don't worry. Its by no means new. Its a 99 with 58K on it. And there appear to be a fair number of them like that out there with low mileage. Cast offs by rich people who only drive em on nice Saturdays seem to be the norm with these things. And of course they all seem to have great maintenance records too cause they alway send their help to the dealers for anything! Then they get tired of them and move on to something bigger and faster at some point. Found quite a few of them exactly like this in the $15 to 20K range to look at. This one set me back 15K is all...
