Maynard--that's the problem...I don't have enough for a new gun, although I'm sure that's what he would most like. I think the most I could spend would be around $300. Aimless--I think you might exceed my budget by just a bit! :)

How about buy him something that he asked for. My gf is always buying stuff that she thinks i asked for and it never is. If he wants a case of ammo, buy him that brand and cal of ammo that he wants. It will make him happier than having to tell you thanks honey, but its the wrong one.

BJ cruzing through the desert looking for coyotes drinking a cold beer would pretty much do it for me!

That's okay, I'm looking for all kinds of suggestions! [:)] I'm sure my husband would like that too! Maynard and Aimless--Thanks so much for your suggestions! I will look into the SARs and see what I can figure out there. I also like the idea of a really cool knife. Do you have any good links for them or is there a certain type I should look for? Thanks again!

if you are looking for a SUPER cool knife, get him a Benchmade Auto. Mine is a Stryker 9500 designed by Allen Elishewitz. It'll run you about 175.00 at a gunshow/terrorist arms bazaar but they are AWESOME. Or get him a Browning Buckmark. or a Walther P22! Those are Awesome little guns you can get for aroun 200 clams. Not bad. I have both and I Love them. The Walther is a great pack/trail/last ditch conceal gun. Crash.

I have never seen a coyote drink a beer.

Without sounding too wimpy, I'd just want a hug, kiss, and a "I love you." [:)]

Hmmm... I would love to get a Dillon RL-550 progressive reloading press. If he doesn't reload already this would be a fantastic gift, with the added benefit that you could buy him new accesories for it whenever he deserves another present.

whipped cream bikini ...along with some type of vintage motorcycle. perhaps a bmw r12 military.

Does he write a lot? How about a Mont Blanc Number 149 piston filling fountain pen with either a medium or OBB nib? I'm sure that you could find one for +/- $300 at a discount office supply store. If he doesn't use a pen, how about an air compressor? Being able to buy your own pneumatic tools rocks! Or what about a GPS? Does he fish? You could get him a nice Orvis 8' 6wt rod for about $300. How about an offshore fishing trip down here in coastal Carolina?

Oh yeah, you could get him a sweet driver or a Scotty Cameron putter for three bills. So you want to spend three hundred dollars on your man huh? Are you married? Are you HAPPILY married? Do you want me to send you some polariods?[BD]

Since I don't have a lady-friend I guess I won't be getting a damn thing...does this make me sound bitter?

How about a Pop-up canopie. I know summer's almost over but I was pretty envious of the people who had them at Bulletfest. Even more so after Bulletfest when my sunburn really started kicken.

I'd just like to [b][i]have[/i][/b] a lady. [:(]

First..you have already gotten him a lot...I salute your willingness to walk in here and ask for advice and willingness to listen to what was offered...print all of this out and just show it to him....I know it would mean the world to me if someone just tried as hard as you have.... sometimes it is the thought that counts.... Second---look at the website www.cheaperthandirt.com....it is full of stuff

Pop up canopy is good. "Oh no! My day at the range will be ruined by the rain." Only time you have to get wet is to change targets.

ArWife, you might consider a Chris Reeve Sebenza, just about the finest, smoothest and one of the strongest folding knives made. I suspect he would be speechless. [url]www.chrisreeve.com/sebenza.html[/url]. You can find them cheaper at various dealers. The Reeve site is full retail.

NUMBER 1.) Well...you know[:I] NUMBER 2.) A nice folding knife or a case of match ammo.

I would say the best present would be to hear her say that even thoug I am sometimes a real ass she loves me anyway. That she knows I love her. That her vows are as true today as they day we got married. I want her to look me in the eyes with all the love I have for her. Then a BJ would be nice. [sex]

Hey Guys! Thanks for all of your input. You've been very helpful. I'm sure my husband will appreciate it too. I'm amazed at how open you have been with a person who's so new to this board. Thanks again and I hope someday soon the lady in your life gets you just what you asked for!
Link Posted: 8/10/2002 4:42:25 AM EDT
I also would recommend a SAR 1 AK if you can find one for around 300.
Link Posted: 8/10/2002 5:02:36 AM EDT
ARwife, please let us know what you decided to give him. very curious. he is really going to enjoy whatever you choose im sure.
