I Love My Wife.....



So I just had a birthday last week and I have to say that my wife was VERY good to me....



She helped me buy a pistol.



That makes her EXTREMELY cool.



I mean REALLY FREAKING COOL.



With the rising cost of ammo these days, it has been getting rather expensive to shoot my .45 automatic. As a result, I have had a hankering to get a 9mm 1911. So, beacause Amy is so nice, she decided to help me buy a beautiful Kimber 1911 9mm (Tactical Pro II if you're a guy and this interests you in the slightest - actually, I bet most of the girls have stopped reading by this point so I can pretty much say whatever I want right now.............Testosterone rocks!! I forgot to put the toilet seat up. I don't like your black shoes!! I'm totally kidding!!)


I may sound a little overexcited, but this pistol rocks! Steel slide, aluminum frame, 4" match grade bull barrel, ambidextrous grip safety, lightweight hammer, 30 lines per inch checkering on the frontstrap and bottom of triggerguard, 20 LPI checkering on backstrap, magwell, crisp match trigger......
Very exciting!!

Dang man that is AWESOME!! I'm very jealous. It's great too because with your unique skill set you can appreciate not only the mechanical beauty of it all but also the design of the tool that I've never paid much attention to. That is a beautiful piece of hardware! Congratulations and happy birthday.

Tim is never allowed to see these pictures. There is no way that is happening in our house. Good for you Amy, I could not do the same. We are looking forward to see you both in a little while hope that all is going well.
