    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.

    :eek::eek::eek: 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.

    Probably not, I know that I should have waited to give it to him until Saturday, but it was a follow-up to teasing him with the one at the gun show. The one that they had on display Sunday was #103, so Sharp Shooters Gun and Knife in Lubbock had/has at least 2 of them. I told him that he couldn't shoot it until Saturday though. It will probably be Sunday because I think we will be upgrading our safe on Saturday.
