Seriously! I Was Shopping For A Utility Vest!
 
Honest to gawd now . . . My Columbia Sportswear vest that I use to carry all my "stuff" is getting on. The collar is all frayed, pockets are developing holes, and one of the zippers is broken, sewn shut.

Two "big box" outdoor stores just on the other side of the I-5, Columbia River Bridge, on Hayden Island, I figured before heading to my VA appt. in Portland, I'd shop a bit and see if I can find a replacement.

Joe's . . . formerly "GI Joes" . . . sells Columbia brand. No vest. They have rifles but no handguns. Also, their rifles are all for "sporting purposes" -- whatever that means.

Right next door, next building north, is Fisherman's Supply. I'm thinking maybe a decent steelheader vest, something the sturgeon anglers use . . .

Fisherman's Supply sells handguns. I always check to see what they have. The clerks are inclined to visit. It's a decent place to hang out for a bit, before my appt.

"Jeez! Really, I'm not shopping for a firearm! I'm looking for a vest!"

It followed me home -- before they decide to make them illegal . . .

Sig Sauer "SIG556 Classic Swat" -- I ordered the STS 081 Mini Red Dot, and two more mags from Sig, online.

Never did find a vest . . . :D

On the one hand, Obama should be happy that I'm spending $$$ and stimulating the economy . . .

On the other hand, Obama should be . . . :eek:

Very nice weapon,I think guns ammo business is the only business going in high gear right now,other than government and health care. I have had quite a few follow me home like puppies too,good thing the wife cannot tell one from another or I would stay in trouble.

You grab a hard case, like a Doskocil, "Hon, I'm gonna take the rifle into the shop to have it bore-sighted. Fred told me they'd do it for me at no charge."

That way she can't even argue about the cost of having the work done, and . . . She gets you out of the house for the afternoon.

Later, you walk back into the house with the new hardware in the hard case and she's only concerned that you're home, and so now she can't watch "Dancing With The Stars."

She can't tell one from the other, the new from the old. Besides which, how many pairs of shoes does she own?

-- No, since you bring it up, I'm not married. :D
