I bought myself some presents for Christmas and for my birthday. After all, who else can I trust to get me what I really want?
For Christmas, I bought myself the DVDs for the first season of Deadwood, and the complete series of The Office (the original British version). Deadwood is, I think, the closest thing American TV has to Shakespeare. The Office is just plain funny. If you have HBO, make sure you watch Extras.
For my 40th birthday, I bought myself a Glock 19 semi-automatic pistol and accessories. I transformed from gun-hater to gun-owner in about three weeks. I want to participate in IPSC and IPDA matches, so it made sense to buy my own gun. In fact, I now think it makes sense for everyone to buy a gun. It's amazing how much one's opinions can change. Two months ago, I wouldn't have believed that I would be buying ammo every time I went to Wal*Mart.
I appreciate the gifts my friends and family gave me for these occasions. As for the rest of you, thanks for nothing. :)
Harry, by gun lovin' buddy here says 19's are for wusses. Why not the 17? He also says that the Fobus Holster is the best holster ever owned.
Good luck shootin'
I have a Fobus holster for my Glock.
