After a 3-week vacation, I'm back in the bay area. First off, thank you to Alexii and darwin25 for everything and to all who posted welcome messages...yung gift ko for the Phil-based BOGs, iniwan ko na lang sa office ng sister ko. It can be picked up anytime. Alexii or darwin25? By the way, thanks also for the referrals on the kamagong grips. Rona is such a wonderful lady but I have to go back twice. picked up 5 grips the first day and another 6 the next day. Calling vega, mang danny, stglock. Pls PM me your mailing addresses, I got your kamagong grips. And also a box of Tabacalera for vega. I will post all these stuff next time. Oh yes, I spent the whole afternoon at Mang Tony's shop: 3 holsters, 2 belts & 2 mag pouches. He (rather father and son) made them while we were talking stories. The whole family was there. Anthony Jr, his young wife and kids, and of course Mrs Tony Giron. We had a good time and all i can say is: they are one big happy family. Tulong tulong sila sa paggawa ng order ko. I did not even noticed the rather small space of the shop. Napakagiliw si Mrs Giron. And yes, nagpabili ako ng spaghetti and other meryenda. Kumusta ka raw Vega, sabi ni Mang Tony. Tinatanong kung makapal pa rin and eye glasses mo or kung pumayat ka na raw. Hindi ko sinabing hindi pa tayo nagkikita. And my BIG thanks for the referrals. He is really one good craftsman. Parang ang daling gawin yung leather goods niya. Pati siya, sarap din kakuwentuhan. Pakitaan kami ng license and gun permits. Overall, he is one good gentleman. Binigay pa complete home address. Babalik uli ako sa March or April! I'll make sure puro RnR sa susunod.
