I have a niece that lives in the Seattle area and we have not seen each other for well over 25 years or so. With the help of FACEBOOK my wife tracker her down a few weeks ago and we have been talking since. One day last week my niece asked for my mailing address because she found something "THAT Was Right Up My Alley". Had no idea but it came in today, just got to decide where to mount it. Also makes me wonder what else she remembers about our youth. :)

Did a relative make that?

That's pretty cool. How big is it?

She ordered from WWW.WOODDESIGNER.ETSY.COM guy named Mike Linden in Houston, Tx. The plaque is about 6" x 18" with all the designs routed into the wood and painted then clear coated. Going to get a second one for the back out building.

Not sayin' I don't love it, because I do, but it could cause a problem or two in the case of a defensive discharge situation...

It's really sad when you have to think about those kinds of things now days, isn't it? sorry i mentioned it....

Not my cup 'o tea, but sure is a thoughtful gift. Glad you were able to re-connect!

"...my wife tracker..." Tracked, but we'll let that one go.
So FACEBOOK isn't totally useless. Pity your niece is so far away.
"...could cause a problem..." No more than any like thing on a bumper sticker. A bumper sticker that said "Insured by Smith and Wesson.", kept my old truck from being messed with in a seedy part of a Canadian city I lived in, long ago. When I couldn't drive. All kinds of other stupid things happened, broken windows on the slum building, but my truck wasn't touched.

Nice thing about little country community is almost everyone know everyone else. Also 99% of the neighbors know that I am armed at almost any time and if I'm not one of my neighbor are. Back about 40 yrs ago I was involved in a situation where I had to fire my weapon. After everything was settled one of the older police officers walked up to me and his statement to me was simple- Thought we taught you to shoot better than that.
