First of all,

A big thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy day to send me a birthday wish. A special thank you to Johngoboom for his colorful post.

This past weekend my wife and I went to a local gun shop to buy some gun powder for my reloading. I was looking at some guns and she said "Oh no! You're not buying another gun. You have enough guns and I want to buy some sewing equipment (my wife is big time into sewing and embroidering). There is a piece of equipment I want that's $2 thousand and that is where the money is going. You are not buying another gun!!" Okay, I get the point.

Sunday night I was joking with her and said "Gee, what did you get me for my birthday?". She told me she had no money so most likely a rock and a stick was I all that I was going to get. Gee whiz, I love you too. Before we retired Sunday night she sat me down on the computer and called up Davidson's Gallery of Guns and said, if you buy one, which one would it be. Well, this is it. I picked it up today.



New Blackhawk, .41 Mag with 4 5/8" barrel. I am not sure I am a fan of the new grips, but that will be an easy fix.

I have a .41 Mag Blackhawk (6" barrel), it's a old 3 screw 4 digit s/n that belonged to my late brother. I enjoy shooting it, but it has a lot of sentimental value so it doesn't come out of the safe all that much. I have wanted a short barrel magnum but thought a .44 just might be a little much. This will be a great woods gun.

By the way, I need this like I need a 41 caliber hole in my head. What the hell.

My wife and I will celebrate our 30th Anniversary in December and we are going to Hawaii. I have been there three different times with the military, but she has never been. I suppose my taking her is one reason why I was allowed to get this.

Wives. Go figure!

I've been trying to convince my wife to get a job and start working again so she can buy me things like that. What a lucky guy. Now you owe her big time!

Oh - And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
