So, I am getting married in 4 days. This is a good thing, but there are certain drawbacks. No longer will I frivolously be able to convert any extra money I have at the end of the month into toys, namely guns. Nor will I be able to go out for lunch with my work buddies any day I feel like it. Nor will I be able to come home from a night of boozing, crawl into bed, and call in sick to work the next day, get up get some breakfast at noon, hit the range for a little while, and generally have a good time. The stinger really is having to justify firearms purchases, or at least having to save up extra for them. Cursed budget an all. However, my younger brother gave me a handsome wedding present the other day: a Ruger Bird's Head Vaquero in .45 Colt, with black micarta grips and the color case blue finish. Its a beautiful gun and I can't wait to get it to the range. I do dread that I will have to get him a coparable gift when he is married in 9 months, but that is what brothers are for.
