    maybe a swiss luger, love lugers for their unique mechanics and the swiss guns with their strawed bluing look fantastic.

    Just picked up this today, however, for Christmas it may be a CZ Shadow 2, or TSO, or Czechmate.. 20191120_142326.jpg

    not to mention, coal is a fossil fuel. Getting a fresh supply of it will piss off the tree hugging liberals. So getting coal for Christmas must be good after all! :flag:

    Ha! You guessed my plan! Christmas has beaten me up for decades, until I finally accepted the fact that I don't like the holiday and stopped messing with it. However, I always got something for myself for Xmas and this year is no exception!

    I wanted to sell my 1993 Jeep Wrangler YJ that has a class 3 receiver hitch. For about 12 years, that Jeep has pulled small trailers including the trash trailer every 3 weeks or so, but I needed a truck to replace it. Enter my friend/neighbor, David from down the street. He said his place was over-run with wheels and something had to go!

    My new/old truck is a 1993 Ford Ranger step side "Splash" truck. It has PS, PB, good A/C, good tires, 4 cylinder and 5 speed standard trans. There are lots of wide bed Rangers around here, but very few step side beds. It's very distinctive!

    The best part is that in a place where there are over a million flood damaged vehicles, I've seen this truck every day for 6 years and know its history!

    I had a class 3 receiver hitch installed this week and boy, that truck runs great! Merry Christmas, Flash!

    Now comes the hard part..... Gotta sell my old buddy, the Jeep Wrangler.

    I want a new carry gun but haven't found one that speaks to me. I know it will be 9mm with a metal frame. The hunt is half the fun.

    Not buying myself anything for Christmas.

    I've bought enough for myself, calling it my "retirement gift to me."

    So, I have planned this out -
    I'm buying a nice diamond ring (size 7) and have to figure out what kind of box to put it in, to throw my wonderful wife off-track.
    Maybe a toaster oven box, or some other utilitarian container.
    I don't want her to know what's inside, until she actually is into the container.''

    Say what you want.
    My wife has gone through Hell with medical issues for the last couple of months.
    I want to give her something nice.

    Saw an ad for a metal grip frame for the 365. Makes it a bit thicker, long and heavier, but it's 9mm and metal. Sorry, I forgot the name but I'm sure Google could help.

    I need a new turtle cleaning kit.

    But I'm leaning towards a Remington TAC-13.

    Bullets and primers. This is the time of year I usually catch a decent sale on them. Maybe a couple pounds of different powders I've been wanting to try.
