You betcha'...

I don't mind.   One of the good things  about getting to know your dealer well is they let you fondle handle all the cool stuff.  In all honesty it's not a gun I would use, I don't buy safe queens.   

Then there is the ~$12k in cost with scope.

I used to have a relationship with my arms merchant in Tulsa.  Not a bad thing...except he passed away.

That sucks!

I had a friend that was a dealer, his name was Squeak and he called me Toe Doc (there is a story I'll share some time), who died of diabetic complications after a surgery; I lost my gunsmith as he was working on a revolver for me and getting ready to start a conversion on my open gun (.45acp to 9mm major), and my favorite FFL/Eye Doc/very good friend is struggling with age, health, and the sudden loss of his life.  Then today I came across the obituary for another friend (SASS shooter and gunsmith).

I need to find younger friends!
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

40 hours a week is strange. 

I've been on one or another well location since September 9th 12-14 hours a day.....but you know that drill.  I practiced retirement for 4 months and never really slowed down around the house.  You'll get the hang of it......or not!

I'm going nuts.  There is only so much you can do in a apartment during the week.

Take up ham radio.  I didn't have time to pack mine.  It would have been great.

I did start back at the gym, that has helped some.  Still I am use yo leaving before 6 and getting home between 9 and 10, 7 days a week.   That's basicly the last 20 years of my life. Hard habit to break.  Hell, I have my alarm set so I remember to take a break.

Well my season lasted a little more then 30 mins.   894 lbs at the weight station.   Did most of the large processing, after 5 hours it's break time.  Still at least another day to go. Before it's ready for the freezer.

200 ish yard shot, ran about 100' fell over, with easy access to the tractor.  Man I wish I could post pics.

WOW!!
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
—Patrick Henry

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster
