I got mine early, that light triggered Kimber Royal Classic that Bud's coming to Florida to try this winter. Had to jump on it when I had the chance but that blew the budget according to my accounting manager.....



and the first target at 35 feet



I also gave a friend who's had a really rough year his first really good holster. A Laredo Defender similar to the one pictured here.

http://www.kdholsters.com/owb-defend.php

He's been through two hip replacements and spinal surgery resulting in partial loss of use of one leg. They're hoping it might come back over the next year but no guarantees. He was having troubles shooting his .357 snub due to advancing arthritis and worried about not being able to defend himself or his wife. I kind of helped him out in trading a hunting rifle he had for a Kahr CW9. He loves the gun and can handle it well but he had a cheap holster for it as he's not exactly flush these days. Kevin at K&D just happened to have a Defender that was an extra that he needed to sell for a good price so I decided he needed the holster more than I needed some extra goodies. He snuck open his present today and is thrilled, he's now discovering the joys of fine custom gun leather. Heck, that makes me happier than anything I'd of got for myself with the money....

Wish I could convince myself to get the Thompson as a Christmas gift. Well I got my Fusion 10mm longslide. Sold my SA TRP Operator to get it and had a relative pitch in cash instead of a gift. After shooting it today the Springer is just a faint afterthought.:biglaugh:

Um, Was there a poll on that topic? I don't recall anyone asking me about your conduct around the plant:thinking:

:biggrin:


We always get odd looks from the kids when our stockings are empty so I decided I should wrap a couple 20 round boxes of Silvertips I picked up today and put them in there. After buying 10mm ammo who can afford to buy a gun?:rofl:
