Default New addition to the family

My dad came over yesterday so I could put brakes on his Exploder. When we (I) were done we started digging thru the gun safe. I pulled out my R1S and he looked at it and said " I always wanted a gun like this but never could afford it". To which I replied "you can afford that one"
Him: What do you mean?
Me: Here's the box it came in, the 2 mags full and when you decide to shoot it come back because I have some plinking rounds that are cheaper to shoot than the ones in it. By the way it is loaded. What a deal???? I get a sore back and he leaves with a gun.
I can't have an empty hole in the gun safe so I called an LGS this morning and had them put my name on the gun in the attachments. Told him I would be by after work to pay for it. While I am standing there doing the paper work I am thinking that thing looks short. Duhh it's a commander model.

Congrats on the new Ruger, but an even bigger congratulation on doing something that nice for your father.

You'll be just fine! You can hold your head high.

From the title of the thread I thought it was going to be a dog or something.

Very nice pistol indeed! and a very nice deed you did for your father
