So last Saturday I attended a local DU banquet, with my wife, our oldest daughter and a friend of hers. During the course of the evening I was lucky enough to win two new guns, a Ruger LC9s and a Browning A bolt in 7mm Rem mag. My daughter's friend mentioned that she wouldn't mind having the pistol, she lives alone and would like to have one for protection. So I told her that if she takes the ladies handgun course that our local sportsmen's club is sponsoring that I would give her the pistol. She immediately went online and registered for the course and my daughter decided to take the course with her. I was very happy with those decisions, little did I know that my insistence on her taking the course would come back and bite me in the butt. The next morning over breakfast my wife says to me " honey I've been thinking" and right away I'm thinking oh this can't be good. So she says to me, you really don't want or need that new rifle do you? I answered very carefully and in a shaky voice, no I really don't need it, (emphasis on the word need) why? She continued, well I was thinking that maybe you could sell the rifle and use the money to buy pistols for Stacey and me, then we can all take the handgun course together. I protested a little bit and told her that I could do that but that I wouldn't have anything left after buying the pistols and what would I have to show for winning 2 guns. And then she says that I would have the warm feeling from knowing that I did something nice for the two of them. How the hell do you argue with that? Long story short my friend Albert came over to the house yesterday and picked up his new Browning 7mm Rem. mag. and my wife and I are taking a road trip this Friday to pick up the new pistols that I ordered from Grice's Gun Shop.
