Just landed a job after being out of work for the past 6 months...

So celebration is in order. Bought a Beretta Silver Pigeon III. Always wanted a nice over/under so thought now is as good a time as any. Hopefully will get it the week after next. Looking forward to it, ha, ha...

This one is one for the boy...

Congrats! I just bought myself a new Browning Lightweight White Lightning 12ga with oiled stock (no glossy Browning stocks for me, thanks), and yes - it feels good to treat yourself to something nice.

Trying to alter human behavior by regulating objects has been historically proven a fools errand, and yet is the fundamental underlying premise of gun control.
A conclusion is not a destination, it's simply a convenient place to stop thinking.
Reading a thing doesn't automatically make it so, and repeating it doesn't necessarily make it any truer.

I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no class.

Congrats on both! Getting a new toy is sooo awesome. Glad you found work in a tough economy.

My wife bought me a new 45 for Christmas last weekend and she let my play with it until the next morning. Now I have to wait for Santa

Congrates from the Self-unemployed.

Must have been a pretty good job if you can splurge on a Beretta. Congrates on the gun and the job.
In God we trust, all others pay cash!

Thanks again guys. Here are a couple of pics from the GB auction.

Should be at my FFL on Monday and hopefully will pick up next weekend. (My FFL is quite a bit north from me, but I head up that way on most weekends.)
