Joined the ranks
 
Finally, joined the ranks.
12 years of wanting.
Fulfilled a dream yesterday.
Found a used one at a decent price--
got in just under the wire...maybe.
I had to jump before it was too late--
some other things just had to be put aside.
My wife understood.

Got up this morning, and it had kind of that Christmas Morn feel to it.
Opened up the safe to look, just to make sure it wasn't a dream :)

I almost spit water on my laptop when I read that... LOL That's funny...

Welcome to the Forum and welcome to the Evil Black Rifle Family Bernie. Yes, I believe that you got in just in time. However, now that you are in, you SHOULD be grandfathered in and be "allowed" to keep what you have rightfully paid for....:confused:

I'm still waiting for my Obama collector coin set. I think it'll be the best investment since my Thomas Kincaid Christmas Tree thingie.

"Now go get mags and ammo for it pronto."

240 rounds is all I could spring for right now for that one--
been stocking up alot lately (as is everyone),
I'm scratchin' my head trying to figure funds for more.
Hope to find a couple extra magazines online tomorrow.

Wanna float me a 0% interest loan? :D

I'm tapped out right now. But here is the TARP application. Tell 'em you're too big to fail and maybe they'll loan you a few billion. Good luck! :D
