    Not a pistol carbine, not for Christmas but for birthday in December put a 1895 on layaway. Long 90 days wait.

    Now you"re talkin!! Was anxious to hear if anybody got any "good toys" like guns and knives. Last year was a new sheath knife and a super powered flashlight which I consider toys to but this year was more practical but not disappointing. Warm vest and gift cards from the kids. Ended up with new insulated boots. Pretty happy camper.

    ......
    I didn't get a pistol carbine either, but combined with cash Christmas gifts, the sale of a pair of AR speakers and some good year end sales, I was able to get a Henry Original in .45Colt. Pickup next week.

    Forgot to mention my son gave me a Vortex Strike Eagle scope. I immediately installed it on my AR and dialed it in on New Years at his place.

    nothing cool.
    but I got a popcorn tin full of whoppers candy from the oldest girl, a gift card to texas road house [I just got back from there actually]
    and the wife paid for the parts I needed to rebuild my Ponsess Warren L/S-1000.
    that poor machine has cranked out shot shells since the early 90's and has worn out 2 trap guns and a hunting shot gun.
    it was sorely in need of some new bushings and a primer tray.

    hot ****, thats what I'm talkin' about. I need me 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 of them tins of Whoppers. now I need to find some place around here that sells them

    I'm pretty sure she just bought a bunch of whoppers and poured them in the popcorn tin.

    the oldest girls little Chihuahua loves whoppers and always mooches some off me when I open the lid.
    when I brought the tin home and set it down the little dog just sat there next to it shaking and barking like she does when she wants something.

    You ARE aware the chocolate will kill your dog, yes?
     
  15. gsbuickman

    gsbuickman G&G Evangelist

    Good call, chocolate is bad juju for dogs because it makes them violently ill and will kill them depending on how much they weigh and how much they've eaten

    OOPPSS, either I missed it - or forgot it - hard to say which. :oops:
    But at least it's a chance for an update! :D

    yeah, chocolate is bad for dogs.
    I'm more worried about the non chocolate parts of the 'chocolate'.
    the percentage of chocolate fat in many chocolates is so low it might as well not be an ingredient on the package.

    anyway.
    there is a formula out there where you mix peroxide and water and give it to a dog to drink.[so many oz's based on body weight]
    this makes them throw up.
    I know it exists because a biologist friend told me about it after his Lab ate about 4 lbs of chocolate covered coffee beans.
    I haven't found the weight conversion yet.

    AR15 pistol kit just arrived, 10.5" .223 Wylde barrel, MLock handrail, Shockwave stabilizer, and a whole lot of parts. Will have to decide on optics and a different flash hider (other than stock). When I get it together, I'll post a photo...
