    As I tell the wife, I can spend some money at the gun store or the strip club
    Besides, when that "cute pistol" shakes it's "BUTT" at you, whom can resist?

    I think that might be one of the best 1911 bargains out there right now.

    I'm new to this "BBQ" gun thing. Oddly, born and raised in Texas, you'd think I'd have heard of that before. But the first time I heard that phrase was a couple of weeks ago here on this forum. Maybe that's an Oklahoma thing :)

    It sure can’t be a Texas thing, because up until fairly recent, they have not had open carry:)

    A fool and his money are soon parted. Old adage but true! The foolish part stopped when I began letting others be Beta Testers in regards to the next latest and greatest in regards to firearms. The got to have it is greatly diminished to the point I can pass on it. I did not acquire a Gen-1 S&W Shield until just before the introduction of the Gen2. With Glocks I waited till Gen3. SIG can keep their P365!
