I guess Christmas was good as usual. I got a S&W 500 with 4" barrel. I am taking it out in a couple of hours for a test drive. It sure looks BIG. I will find out if it is as much fun as my .454 Casull. I am shooting the 440gr. Hard Cast rounds. Merry Christmas everyone.

Happy Holidays!

`3 Stooges` dvd collection

That's what I wanted. I did get a remote starter for the new truck, now that it has to sit outside during the winter. New House and the garage is not big enough for my truck and Harley and the wifes new TrailBlazer. That new garage will be next year. I did get the paperwork started for my suppressor on my P22. Sure do love that 1918A3 Hawkeye Joe. Marks, I saw two cans just like that at the Richmond Indiana show last week, along with the Tippman 1919 semi auto of course. But it was a perfect replica in minature.

I got a new L Drum from Santa [alias PK] Claus.
Got it on Christmas Eve since I live in Colorado too!
Also a new computer on order - I don't even have
enough harddrive space on my current one to
store anymore Thompson pics!
Hope you all are having a great holiday,

Dave

I was in an antique store last september while waiting for My cat to get spayed. There was a real pretty Springfield trapdoor two band rifle in there with cleaning rod and a minty bore. I looked it over, Mentioned to My wife what a nice rifle it was for the price, Put it back in the glass case and completely forgot about it till I found it under the tree Christmas morning. She snuck back to the antique store and layed it away while I was browsing the Ace hardware I guess. I felt kind of bad as My gift to her paled in comparison. Gotta love em!

A Model 27 made in 1953. Man, you do have a beautiful wife. My wife bought me the next best thing.....powertools. Now if I could only keep her from touching them. She makes smoke come out of the motors and stuff. They don't run good when they lose their smoke.

A couple of the things I got.......

The smiles of my family as they enjoyed every gift they opened on Christmas morning! Then my whole extended family showed up at Two PM for food and fun! It was GREAT!!

A 3 foot long Rapala "fishing" lure....Chartreuse tiger. I guess I could troll with it on the anchor rope, but it'll look much better hanging in the family room!

A couple "L" drums ( a really nice, non-numbered NY.NY. in a very nice pouch and a brand-new West Hurley) at the SAR show, which my wife attended with me....quite a gift in itself!

Spoke to my new CLEO (a truly decent lady who deserved to make it to the top!) about C3.....she has no problems with me adding new stuff to my collection, and so this led to the next item......

My wife freed up some finances for a C&R Sten MKII that I located.......gotta get the transfer going on that! And this is really for my Son and Daughter who really think a Sten is a cool gun! Don't get me wrong....they love the Thompson and the S&W 76, too! But a Sten is something new and different....


All in all, a very decent holiday!! wink.gif Now I just gotta start working overtime to pay for it all.
