I'm a lucky man

Have I mentioned how great my wife is lately? No, well she is. You want to know why? After reading my post about Winchester closing down, do you know what she did? She took me out today and bought me a Winchester model 94 .30-30. How can you not love a woman that trusts you enough to buy you a firearm? She definitely is the greatest!

Since I was out and about and obviously someplace I could buy ammo, I figured I should. Especially since I’m going to go shooting tomorrow.


I got all of that for under $100.00. For those of you trying to count, and I know at least a couple of you are, that is: 250 .357 rounds, 150 .38 special rounds and 150 .22LR rounds. That makes a grand total of 550 rounds. That should last about 2.5 hours at the rate I shoot.

Jealous, aren’t you? (of both the wife and the ammo.)

Yay for you! She sure knows the way to a mans heart, that's for sure!

She's a good woman. And I'm glad you realize how lucky you are. ;-) (don't tell anyone but honestly I think you're both pretty lucky - but that's because I'm crazy about your son!!)

Not so much the ammo, as the wife and the rifle. Wish I'd sold some plasma...

Definitely jealous on the Model 94 purchase - especially in .30-.30... I've coveted one of those myself - but haven't had a good reason to buy one. Yer a lucky man, are you going to let her fire some of those rounds as well? That would be the tribute I demanded, in her shoes ;-)
