My wife surprised me...Early Christmas gift

My mom gave me dad's S&W J-frame model 60 awhile ago, and I've been playing with it at the range, shooting and reloading as fast as possible. With the rubber grips, I haven't been able to get the speed loader to fit without issue, so I've been talking about sending it out for a moonclip conversion.

Well...my wife listened and sent it out 2 weeks ago. I got a phone call from my LGS, saying he had a present for me...I had no idea what it was. The wife and I went up and I was presented with my handgun along with the moonclips and fixture.

Right away we went to the range so I could try this out...I love it! Much quicker loading times, and easy to use.

I have a Model 642 in the safe that I want to have converted now...

I have a cool wife...who digs my toys.

that begins to answers an age-old question:

Does Edith really understand Archie?

Some might say R rated due to it being firearm related.

Actually, with the 642, I may have it converted to a 9mm. A buddy of mine at the gun club has a J-frame converted to 9mm, and I enjoy shooting it.

Yeah? And all Im gonna get is another bj.

Reminds me of the joke about why the bride smiles on her wedding day. She knows she gave her last one.

Apologies if I violated TOU or anybody's blushing sensibilities. I thought it was funny, guys!

or . . . use Ray Romano's sequence . . .

Sex after one child shows down. After twinsÖ oohÖ Iíll tell you what it is for us. Iíll share it with you. Every three months. We donít plan it that way. Thatís just how it works out. Itís the weirdest thing. You know what I do? Every time I have sex, the next day I pay my estimated tax. My quarterlies are due. If itís oral sex, I renew my driverís license.

I laughed out load here in my hotel room after reading this.

As a married man with twins, I can bear witness to this.

Me too. I love that wheelie. I even used it in IDPA a few times just for grins. Pretty good times too.

Nice present JP, enjoy!
