.......a Beta C-Mag, new in the box! :what:

We had talked a few days ago about getting a table at the next gunshow to sell off some "excess" guns and goodies. I asked what kind of stuff he wanted to move, and he allowed as how he had over a dozen Beta C-Mags, new in the box!

Needless to say I was just a little in awe at that statement. I made a remark about having wanted one for some time, then we made other small talk for a bit. I figured that was it. He apparently had other ideas in mind.

Today he and I met up with another friend for beers and lunch at a local watering hole, and he handed me a box before we could enter the building. Inside was, ta-da, a brand new Beta C with all the trimmings, pouch, loader, graphite lubricant, the works! Needless to say I was shocked and kept telling him it was unecessary, too much, etc, etc, all the things you mention when taken by surprise. He just kept on about things I had done for him in the past, and to simply enjoy it in good health. Best I could do under such short notice was to thank him and buy everyone's lunch and beers.

Guess I will have to stretch it out pretty darn quick! :D

He is a real good friend, and very concious of the efforts of those around him. I just never thought my efforts stood out that much. Apparently he thinks otherwise.

The way I see it I can simply try to be the same friend I have always been....and buy him lunch and beer often! :p I must say however, that he does have a prodigious appetite for both! :D
