    Christmas rifle

    On Christmas morning I found a Ruger 10/22 under the tree! Do I have a great wife or what?

    I guess so. But I left a Ruger LC9s pro model under the tree for my girlfriend. Am I a great guy too?

    This is the first year neither my wife or I have given each other a firearm for Christmas although I did get her a mini ammo can full of chocolate bullets.
    I was just taking a look at a Stainless Complete Upper from Hardened Arms in 300 BLK for $300 shipped. I was thinking of getting it and building her one as I do have the lower, internals etc..
    Also just got a email from gun deals for a Remington .380 for $99 after rebate . Got a couple of other 380's that we never shoot now that we both have 938's but that is a deal hard to pass up

    Christmas rifle

    There was a present under the tree for my 8mo son. The tag said it was from "The Founding Fathers". My liberal sister helped him open the present. And upon opening she got the reference and proceeded to sort of freak out. The box contained an AR15, just wasn't assembled yet. I cut off her lecture, about an 8mo not needing a gun, immediately. I will get it put together this week, test it and keep it in the safe until he's old enough to shoot it

    I kept buying the wife rifles and pistols for Christmas. Then I realized---they were not for her! Now I have to shop for purses and other ****. Sigh...... I realized there are many addicted to drugs who rationalize their addictions by projecting on other people.

    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    Wife got me a Ruger Predator w/Vortex Diamond Back scope in 223. Wanted Precision 6.5 or 6 creed but the wife said " Start with this in 223 its cheaper, and less new ammo piles" Does that make her smarter than me?

    As long as she ment the 'start with' - yes. That means more guns!
