Went to the local Sportsman's Warehouse yesterday to pick up some odds n ends.  I started looking at 1911s.  That was a mistake.  Looked at every Springfield and Kimber they had.  I finally whipped out the plastic and said "I'll take one of those," pointing at a Springfield Operator:


Must have been gone 3 hours or so.  Driving home I get a call from the wife on the cell phone:

"Where the hell are you at?"
"About 5 minutes from the house, honey."
"And where the hell have you been?"
"Oh, at the Sportsman's warehouse."
"And what did you buy?"
"Oh, some stuff."
"Yeah, I'll bet.  What kind of stuff?"
"Just stuff.  Nothin special. You'll see."
"You didn't buy another gun, did you?"
"Huh, who, me?  It's father's day ain't it?"

But it ended well and I got to keep my spiffy new 1911.  Took it to the range today and it shoots very well-- very accurate.  I had a couple of jams, which I'm hoping is just new gun tightness.  Overall I'm very happy.  This model has the accessory rail, so I can attach goodies below the barrel.

Next time I'll come home with a Kimber. [;)]

Somehow before I even clicked on this post, I knew it would be some form of 1911...

Even if you were out of money,you would still be a rich man with such a fine pistol as that.

You guys should give "the kid inside you" a bigger allowance.  That way, you get more expensive father's day gifts. [:D]

Wife and kids gave me a new Bushmaster carry handle yesterday to replace the one that was stolen from me. It was a nice ending touch to an entire day of shennanigans with the kids.
