    My daughter got married today

    It's tough to say goodbye because, that's what it feels like to me but, she's happy.

    On the bright side, we are empty nesters now.

    So, here's to a bright future to all of us...the forum included

    Congrats!

    I know what you mean, my daughter goes off to college next year. She's an only child, so it's going to be really, really quiet here.

    I've always said, "Marriage is a fine institution!" (as long as you like living in institutions.)

    Sorry, I couldn't resist that one. Truly, Congratulations! Cheers!

    Congrats! My kids are getting older, faster and I'm sure I'll be there before I know it. Enjoy the "alone" time and remember that just because she's out of the house, doesn't mean that she won't need Mom and Dad from time to time.

    Yes I did Seriously, the young man has a good head on his shoulders and I expect them to be partners for a long time.

    We talked about weapons options while living in San Diego...very limited compared to Florida but, there are options and they plan on exploring them. Things will be better in Bremerton,WA when they move there later this year.

    My daughter handles my g19 very well...surprised the heck out of me as she racked the slide, ejected the mag and shot it extremely well her first time out.

    She's girly to the max but, very athletic and will jack a BG up if she has to.

    As a dad, i'm confident that they'll both be fine but, i'm sad and a little worried that I can no longer be her protector. May God bless them both.

    Thanks for the comments.
