Happy Birthday to Me

Well, OK, today isn't my birthday.  But the mortgage company was balancing its escrow books and lo and behold I have been paying too much and they sent me a check for the overpay.  And although I can't indulge completely, I can indulge a little bit.  Guns are like potato chips.  And pets. You can't have just one.  And I don't have nearly enough. So...


.38 sp from Taylors and Co. down in VA.  A Ubertti.  Was hoping to get a .38/.357 but the bigger frame for that causes me to have to reach awkwardly in order to cock each time, which in turn causes me to shift the gun each time.  Since it's a single shot - nah.  It's a grins and giggles gun.  It doesn't have to put plate-sized holes in zombies. 

And because I bought it in VA, I couldn't walk out with it.  Has to be transferred to an FFL up here.  Sigh.  Puts a damper on the whole instant gratification thing.

  1. Now you're just one more single-action pistol, a lever-action rifle and a shotgun away from being ready for Cowboy Action Shooting.

    I even know what name you could adopt for your CASS membership. You could be...

    Wait for it...

  2. Doesn't matter if it was inconvenienced by the unConstitutional regulations ... you still got it, and it's sweet. Nice!

    1. Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait. Dumb laws. What the heck difference is there if I walk out of it there or I walk out with it across the state line?

  4. I got one of those because I liked the birdshead grip. Turns out my wife liked it enough that I no longer am allowed to claim it. Nice gun.

    1. Heh. That grip does cup in the hand nicely, doesn't it?
