Default The girl or the gun?

It's been a quite week around here. I know I've been busier than usual at work, and haven't been on here as much as I usually am, then when I do log on . . . no fights. Damn. How boring.

This thread probably won't engender that much hard feelings on anybody's part, but hopefully it will be interesting, and mebbe insightful.

Here's the issue. You stop by a garage sale, and you see an old brass spittoon that you think would look good in your man cave. You talk 'em town to $2.00 and take that sucker home. Grabbing a can of brasso you go to clean it up and a damn genie appears . . . it's not a spittoon, its the bottom half of an old Arabian oil lamp.

Okay, you say, here are my three wishes . . . but the genie says he's soooo tired of the three wishes crap, that everybody wants three wishes, but it doesn't work that way with all lamps, and here's the best deal here can give you:

You can either spend one week, anywhere in the world, with the girl of your dreams, or you can have (for keeps) any gun that you want.

Which would you choose, and WHY?

Tough choice. Both women and guns will come and go. Love em today gone tomorrow.

But in the long run, a great woman, anywhere in the world, knocking boots for a week, that's money. The gun of your dreams will come much easier.

Take the woman

You're supposed to name the woman and location. I'm still considering my answer, but so for I'm leaning toward double A's == Alba and Amsterdam.

Anne Hathaway and she must have her super short hair cut. Women in short hair are awesome! lets say a private villa in the Caribbean

On the other hand, one of Skeeter Skelton's revolvers would be mighty sweet.
