Default My Birthday Present

Lord I know y'all are getting tired of me telling what my wife got me and to be honest I'm at a complete loss as to why she treats me like a prince. She originally told me that the Steyr Aug was Christmas, Anniversary and Birthday present; however, yesterday she gave me a package and said it was my Birthday present. When I reminded her of the Aug she just smiled and said “oh well” and said open the package. To be perfectly honest I was at a loss for words and could not even speak, I still can’t believe her. I have S/N #42 of the limited edition only 400 made “Talo Ghost Commander” Colt Commander 1911. Turns out a forum member posted about a month ago that they had one and Linda jumped on it and bought it for my birthday. I still can’t believe it. Here are some pictures and hope to have a range report on Saturday. Oh yeah, she took it completely apart and I had to reassamble it.

I hope you deserve her!

Can we get Linda to call my wife and just talk about things?

Seriously, she's a beauty (the pistol).

Thank you rigger, I still can't believe she did it. I'm definitely not worthy of her.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
