My wife, beautiful young thing that she is, was searching around for something to buy for my birthday which was yesterday. She got me some really cool ancestry.com presentation on my distant family including rosters of what battleships dad was on in WW2. We were walking the dog last night and she confessed I'm the hardest person ever to buy for. (she is correct) She told me she had heard me speak of 1911's and that I admired the Singer 1911. She apparently went on a 1911 forum trying to buy me one and was promptly advised she's need about 100k for the pistol. A little bit more than she planned. We laughed, she had no idea the value and was trying to spend a grand or so at most to get me that little 1911 I've talked about. Love is grand, Singer's are 100 grand.
