Santa is Slipping a Bit it Seems

I think I have been mostly a good boy this year, but not good enough to rate this gift:













What's in there? Well a new My Little Pony, derp!  Sorry, just channeling some Erin Palette

Let's see what's in the box! 



 

 













I was stunned. Santa must be loosing it for giving me such a thoughtful gift! 





 













In .45 ACP of course.  So I read the manual.  Don't laugh, but I am not familiar with what looks and feels like a 1911 without a barrel bushing up front.

I ran across some comedy gold statements in it.  Take this for instance from page 1: "This Colt product is classified by the ATF Division of the IRS, U.S. Treasury Department, as a firearm or dangerous weapon; it is, therefore potentially lethal!"  Well, duh!  But wait, there's more!  We are up to page 21 after an exhaustive description of all the safety mechanisms.  Oh, here it comes, wait for it: "These safety devices are designed and installed in this pistol to prevent accidental discharge. Of course, this Colt pistol is designed primarily to discharge bullets, and it will do this efficiently when it is loaded and you squeeze the trigger..".  That's comforting and I am glad they cleared up the fact that this pistol does not discharge unicorn tears and rainbows! 
 

For the first time in a long time I am here in stately manor instead of spending Christmas Eve with family.  It's strange. I do have a lot to reflect upon, and am very blessed. 

Merry Christmas to you and yours and a range report is forthcoming! 

I am always glad to see this room and the people that live there at Christmas:






 



Oh, hey! NFO! Can I join the cool kids club now =) ?  It's not a New Agent, but should be close enough, right?

  4. Merry Christmas! I don't think I was good enough for a gift like that - so I just went out and picked up a new toy for myself. ;)

  5. I'm pretty sure lack of a barrel bushing disqualifies you from the cool kids club...

  12. Would Santa consider Adopting? Redheads make excellent house pets, paper trained,clean, mostly obedient and very affectionate, will only bite if you take their bacon away.

    That's awesome (though I did get a really cool present from Erin, so I'm not complaining).

      Erin rocks!
