  • I think something is wrong with me........

    I just won this auction:
    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=229830097

    And I am absolutely stoked. The wierd thing is, I am stoked because I am giving it away as a gift to the man who introduced me to firearms and hunting, the man who has been my dad for the last 35 years. Is it strange that I am more excited about giving this away than I am about buying a nice firearm for myself?

      I think he'll appreciate the gift and you being a good son.

        I think it's admirable and shows your character. If one of my son's did that I would probably tear up with pride.

          I love to give people presents. It's great that you can afford such a nice one.

                    That is SO COOL! As said, if I were your dad getting that, I'd well up with tears of pride.

                      Nope. It means you have a good soul and recognize that sometimes the feelings of others are more important than yours.

                            Wow. That is awesome. I absolutely LOVE Henry rifles and that one is a real beauty.

                            That is one very sweet gift. I'm sure Dad will love it.
