Kind of like a birth announcement isn't it, only you have to wait 4 to 6 months for the birth. laugh.gif

Congratulations! Pics would certainly be appreciated, or a link to the site. Would you mind sharing what the puppy set you back?

Congrats on the gun. You will be very pleased with it when it comes. I have seen all of Jim's guns and believe me, they are very nice. I can't wait to shoot it. biggrin.gif

Yes, we will meet in Winchester after the birth. laugh.gif

I did pay full price blink.gif . My thoughts are in the next 30+ years I own the gun, prices may go up and down but at the end of the day I will own a very nice Savage Tommy Gun that will be worth at least what I paid for it when my kids sell it. unsure.gif

All I can do now is wait until the birthday. sad.gif
