    Vacation and a new toy

    My wife insists that we have to go on vacation for a week. I am being forced to go to Aptos for a week and live on the beach. Actually the wife rented a house, and all the kids are coming too. Before you panic, the youngest is 25 and she is a Correctional Officer, so there will be no patter of little feet less than size 10. Anyway, I had to do something to offset this hardship, and this weekend I found a beauty in one of my favorite gun stores. Today I forced myself to go at lunch and look one more time. I get to pick it up in 10 days, the day I return from vacation. She is a Walther GSP, made in West Germany, three mags, weight/compensator, red dot optic (I didn't even notice which one; it works well). I am a happy vacationer now, and will post picts when I get little sweetheart. This is one of the finer .22 pistols, in great condition. I'm a sucker for .22s...

    I am way too impatient to have to wait 10 days to be able to fondle the hardware I just paid for, that sucks however, I am not too impatient to handle laying around on a beach for a week. Enjoy both, congrats!

    Congrats! Nice firearm.
    Vacations...terrible, awful, things.
    Much better to be stuck in the house or at the job working all summer long. Overtime is better yet.

    You want me to go on the doggone vacation for ya?
    I could sure use another one right about now.

    John - you will love that!! Back in the days when I was doing serious .22 bullseye, it was the GSP that really got me tuned up.

    IMO one of the best .22's for stellar accuracy.

    So - beach bum for a week huh?! Can't be bad
