The best part of this past weekend, besides hubby taking me out to eat for my birthday . . .
(No, this isn’t at Tiffany’s . . . nor is it breakfast for that matter . . . )
(see . . . I’ve been craving Chinese food for awhile . . . and, uh, that’s why my plate is so full . . . It was a buffet, “happy smile” . . . and it was really, really good! )
and getting to watch “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
was, on Saturday, getting to tag along with hubby and a friend to several gun stores. At first, when I headed out with them, I was just happy to be able to see the stores that my hubby loves stopping at.
There were racks and racks of guns . . .
There were some pretty insane sales going on too, so the two gun shops we visited first were packed!
I’m not sure if it was more crowded than the college buses during rush hour, but I do know that these people were far more polite and good natured.
This is the line of people waiting to get out of one of the back rooms. That isn’t the checkout up ahead, just the main section of the store.
So, I’m hanging out with hubby, looking at all the guns, and seeing guns I haven’t seen before . . . at least not up close and personal . . . and I start feeling it . . .
This gun . . .
shoots these bullets . . .
(That’s my hubby’s hand, and he doesn’t have small hands. When I held that bullet up against my hand, it was practically as long as my hand. I hadn’t realized 50 caliber bullets were that large. I believe each of those cost about $5.00, and you go through a lot of ammo quickly. Pretty expensive gun to shoot, needless to say . . . )
Big gun, big bullets . . . and one small girl itching to shoot it just once . . . 🙂
See, the longer I hung out with hubby and his friend . . . and the guns, the more I started to feel it . . .
and after seeing this wall, I was a goner.
I was off dreaming about the guns I’d love to have.
“happy, dreamy sigh”
Someday . . . 🙂
(Frankly, I’m not sure what “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and guns shops have in common . . . accept that I enjoyed both!)
Disclaimer: For anyone wondering, guns and shooting is a hobby for us (my hubby and I). We enjoy target shooting. I’ve been hunting once, a long time ago, and enjoyed it, but probably won’t go again. Punching holes through targets is more fun, and I’ve seen enough pain and death in animals to want to stay away from causing any more forever. In any case, I didn’t want anyone to think I’m a crazy, killer female or something . . . 🙂
