The last couple of weeks of August, Taurus would send me text messages that would go this way... taurus: "bro, pumunta ka na sa pb?" ec: "di pa, busy dito sa hospital." taurus: "daan ka pagkatapos mo ng clinic. tignan mo yung CZ 452." ec: "ok" the following day... taurus: "bro, pumunta ka na pb?" ec: " di pa, mamaya after clinic" the following day... taurus: "bro, pumunta ka na pb?" ec: "di pa, mamaya punta ako" ec: "saan ka? samahan mo ko punta tayo pb" after a few hours... taurus: "bro hindi ako pwede, may meeting ako" ec: "ok, tom na lang" the next week... taurus: "bro, pumunta ka na pb?" ec: "di pa" the following day... taurus: "bro, pumunta ka na pb?" ec: "di pa, san ka? punta tayo mamaya" taurus: "ok" that was Tuesday, August 17. so off we went to PBD along Roces... there were only 2 remaining CZ 452 units left, both dislay items. A CZ 452 American with walnut stocks and a CZ 452 Style with black synthetic stocks and satin finish barrel... the Style was perfect! Taurus picked it up and inspected it. No blemishes whatsoever. I asked the salesman if I can get the Style. He checked and said it has not been reserved yet. I ask him if Mr. Dionisio was in... hoping to get some more discount! Mr. Lui Dionisio said he had to clear it first if they can sell me their display unit... my heart sank! Taurus' was giggling all the way to the bathroom! (but that is a different story altogether!) 3 days later, I get a text message from sir Lui saying i can get the last CZ Style! Woohoo! Gastos na naman! So off we went to PB to inspect the unit again and make a deposit! The PBD staff said it will take around 10 working days to process the license once I submit all the requirements... So encouraged by Taurus, Gundog, WP.22 and Mark da Spark, I found myself embarking on a new project for 2010... setting up my own rimfire rifle. Abangan!
