Actually, this Christmas was the best I have had in recent years and I think this is due to the fact that I just have grown to appreciate my family more and more and the fact that I got to spend it with my mother and father and sister was wonderful. Not to mention, next Christmas, I will be active duty Army so I might not be here with them Good news on the $ for the 17. Fantastic piece, the glock that started it all! thats normally the piece I take camping with me, as in i dont have to worry about concealment! Now - we get to say HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! for the next few days!!! So, Happy New Year to all!!!!
