A New Toy for Christmas!

One of the problems I have procuring gifts for friends and Family is that most of them are of a sort.  If they want something they just go get it.  I struggle coming up with meaningful gifts for them.  On the other hand, some people seem to just fall right into it.  The guys that work for me nailed one today.  They brought me this:




















A big honking Plano storage box for as they say "stuff" and a really impressive DVD collection on WWII.  I love these guys!  We are still working on the big honking project and although we are not there yet, progress has occurred.

Behold:



 














Two operator workstations are live and so is the scale in the background.  More work this weekend though.  


For funner stuff, here is a Crimson Trace Rail Master in Coyote Tan finish on a Smith and Wesson M&P VTAC. 













It appears that Tacticool color "Coyote Tan" is not Tacticool color "Flat Dark Earth".  No matter.  I doubt Better Homes and Handguns will be here anytime soon for a photo shoot!  

I know of the CT laser for the M&P that replaces the removable backstrap.  I really don't want to give up my custom stippled with a soldering iron backstrap, plus I don't know which size CT uses for the laser.  I have small hands for a guy.  I like this one.    
  
So I purchased it as a gift for Mr. Curmudgeon.  I of course need to test it before giving it to him, right?

  2. What agirl said. You'd be no friend at all, if you didn't assure quality control before handing it over.

  3. Nice box! Any bigger and it might need wheels when full.

    Does the keyboard on the workstation fold out? Looks great.

    Oh yes, testing is a must, and don't worry those earth tones "blend".

    1. I agree about the box!

      The keyboard does not fold out but they are touch screens too. We are designing for that with a gloved hand.

      Oh, I will test this weekend to be sure!

    1. Oh, it is in the right direction, just slowed by incursions into the WRONG direction!
