I got my son these two pieces. his b day is in two weeks.

I hope he likes what i got him. both 45s. also threw in 1000 rounds and some rosewood grips, custome holsters with matching belts.:grin:



im really really hoping he likes these two guns.
i think they will go nicely with the 870 rem and mosin that i got him and of course he has a 10/22 lol

mom,
my birthday is in september - can I have that 50 caliber bolt action?

Seriously Shotlady, If they aren't pleased as can be you need to use those guns on them.
Very nice - not my cup of tea but still very nice. (I reload and I hate chasing brass)

Tell him I said "thank you" for his service!
You're still a great mom.
I will be 63 in September but I have a wonderful wife who will give me anything whether its my birthday or not. You remind me just a bit of her - but she's always right here with me.

Thanks my son Bradley is a bit picky so I'm a little nervous. I mow I can put about 150 into fine tuning the 1911 with a Smith and make it a super smooth piece. But I ran out of money getting myself yet another 10/22 and 357. I sent the 870 to rem. It wasn't ejecting right. Haven't heard back from them its been about a month I felt bad. About getting him a gun that doesn't do right.

Will you adopt me? :D
Seriously, I've got a Rock Island Armory plain jane USGI model and it's good. Not as pretty as my Colts, but works just as good.

thanks guys for the reassurance that the 1911 is a fine piece. i get nervous to think this gun could be the one he uses ina defense situation and i need to know it goes bang every time!!!! generic cars and guns really perplex me. but for some reason its the one he wanted.- well of course we all want the colt first lol

XD 45 Tactical. That is still a badass handgun - reliable and long slide accuracy. And 14 rounds of hardball in the gun-friendly states....

That is one fine set of gifts from a mother to her son.

Where were you when I was growing up, Shotlady?

I'm sure he'll be thrilled with those guns. Those XDs are great guns (and I'm not a polymer guy), got a buddy that's got one and he loves it shoots pretty well too.

Shotlady, Its parents like you that "make extrodinary people". When you hug your son, tell him he is appreciated by so many people. I hope you have a great visit and send lots of lead downrange, and fire up your bikes too.

we're having a hard time deciding we need to bring all our shit and drive into blm desert land (about 1 mile) with the guns, tannerite and targets for... handgun training close quarters combat stuff, not like a range day. my gun club is nice but so much is missing. reality is missing. we did want to throw a leg over and do a nice desert morning ride. they have nice roads out there. just open for miles & go through joshua tree ( about 2 miles from his house) with long sweeping twisties awesome vistas, I can smell my leathers and my helmet smells good :)...fap!fap!fap!
generally im not fun to bike with. I always crash dirt biking (but i keep doing it). now this day we were back in the mountians of big bear over a coupla creeks. i broke my leg my bikes on top of me and im yelling get the camera!! it was my first notable crash. and i had to do a ride report... well any way my shifting leg was broke. i couldnt get out of 1st gear. i couldnt stand upfor the woops, every bump ever piece of sand the seem of my panties was bitting into my ass. my ttle yammy isnt a sport touring bike like the busa ( i dont drive those). the prepper in me was cool, my break and clutch levers broke. i had extras in my bike bag. i didnt cry or nothing we rode back a good 2.5 hours (cause i couldnt shift) loaded up the bikes, dropped off my friend and drove an additional 2 hours home. i still enjoyed myself. totally. i dont know that story had a point. but i enjoyed telling you.



but not this time, i have a tarp for the back of his nissan titan king cab, ill fill that up the night before so we can go ******* swimming in the back of his truck after shootin in the desert. and this time he buys the beer :)
