Yesterday was my wife's BD and mine is on the way. A very close friend (Will) called to see if we were home (I was) because he wanted to bring something over. I said sure and over he came. He had a wrapped present along with two BD cards. I opened my card and there was very nice message written inside. I told him Sue would open her card and the gift when she got home. He said o.k. & then I asked him what it was... he said "a candle". Upon arriving home, Sue opened it up. Inside was a card saying "thanks and BTW this is for both of you". The gift was a NIB Taurus Judge revolver. I was shocked. Never before has anybody been so generous to us. I immediately called to thank Will and I said some candle. He said it's kinda like a Roman candle... just light it up and touch it off! How's that for a good friend. WOW, life is grand. YippeeYippeeExcellentExcellentBig GrinBig Grin

Outstanding, Ric!
Nothing says friendship quite like a .45 Long Colt!!  Wink
 
I bet I've been asked by 20 different people about that firearm. I've never shot one.

Thanks all. I'll be taking it up to deer camp in Nov. to mess with. Likely will load up some 3" buckshot and maybe some .45 LC. Should be a hoot.

JF, my Cooper is not an Excaliber just a regular old Jackson Hunter. It's a wonderful piece. If I ever get a wild hair to part with it, I'll be sure and contact you!

Ric

I sense some future planning, Hmmmmmmm....
 
Fantastic gift,  The payback is gonna be expensive and take some hard thought!
Might I suggest you two working your way up to say a hunting lease or elite hunting club membership?  Just thinking ahead....

LOL, Bud. Actually, Will occasionally accompanies me (to our place in western NY) for some Bambi bashing.

FedEx just dropped off some 3" 000 Buck for The Judge. We'll see how she does ASAP. You gents are a hoot.
