    Birthday Present!!

    O.K., today I became the big Six Zero, or as I like to think of it, 30-30. I arrive home a little after my lovely wife, and I come upstairs to dump the stuff from my pockets, and I find a card leaning against the screen of the computer. My name is on it. I open it. It reads "Happy birthday. I love you more than (I won't bore you with the mushy stuff).

    Gift Certificate: one firearm of your choice.
    Love, Me."

    Now that's a gift! Yes, I know what I want, but if I tell you, you will all try to talk me out of it so I won't tell you about the Detonics Combat Master. OOPs! Anyway, I love this birthday present! Only the wife is better!

    Happy Birthday! Might be your last chance to pick up that Ed Brown Supergrade...

    Congratulations and happy birthday and all that good stuff. That is one heck of a card to find lying there.

    How about something in a nice .50 caliber "hunting" rifle?

    I'd love to, but I live in California; .50s are too dangerous, and forbidden. Gotta love Arnie...

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Birthday greetings again John - I'd say that was a well useful gift ...... not to be sneezed at at all.

    You got one solid good diamond of a lady there John ... bless her.
