OK, I drank the Kool-Aid.



We made a stop in Hammond this morning on the way back from an event in Bloomingdale, Illinois.1  I actually wasn't planning to buy today, I just wanted to see and hold one after reading about it at Tam's and Og's.  But the deal was too good to pass up, and the lady wife, while not pleased that it was, after all, a gun, did allow as it was nearly our anniversary, and birthdays were coming up, and yes, I was going to get a camera stuffed up my bum2 this coming Friday and wasn't even going to get kissed.

In return I think I will be paying for her new iPad Mini, if we can find one reasonably priced.

I can't wait to take the Preciousssss to the range.  But I guess it won't be this coming weekend, as I don't bounce back quickly from intravenous Demerol.  (I do get a fabulous nap out of it, though.)

1 The first question the guy at the gun counter asked me was, "Illinois or Indiana?"  I said, "Oh, Indiana.  We were just over in Illinois and we're going home to Indianapolis."  He said, "Welcome back to the land of the free."

2 Getting old is not for the pussyfied.  But nobody told me it involved having your ass violated with a camera after a damn-near day-long purge, then lather rinse repeat once every five years because of diverticulitis.  Ah well.

    Welcome to the dark side. Feels good in your hand, don’t it?

    Oh yes. Yes it does.
    If this is the dark side, I’ve been lied to about the side of light.

    iPad Minis were a mere $199 at Best Buy

    Yeah, she saw a 16GB model at Wal-Mart with some gift card attached. I want her to get the 32GB model, which is probably more expensive and harder to find.

    BTW, there’s a factory deal with purchase of a PPX that runs through the end of the year. You get a PPX mag, polymer holster, and dual mag pouch for FREE plus $9.95 s/h. Restrictions apply in less free and non-free states, of course.
