It’s not a sad story, in fact it has a happy ending.
So yesterday I had to leave work early to pick up my Suby from the body shop, where it was undergoing repairs after being rear-ended a couple of months ago. Well, that took less time than expected, so I ended up with about an hour to kill before I needed to meet Mrs. Ahab.
Being an industrious chap, I figured that I’d head over to the local Gander Mountain and peruse the goodies. BIG MISTAKE. I walk in the door and see that they’re having huge firearms blowout sale; which for the sake of my wallet should have been SIGN NUMBER ONE to turn around and go kill time in a Barnes & Noble or something. But, I didn’t, because I thought to myself “Self, you could just maybe see what they have”.
That would have been mistake number 2. Mistake number three came when I saw the Beretta 92D Centurion and didn’t walk away; instead I had to notice that it was marked down to $380 for a brand spanking new Beretta with 2 15 round magazines.
Somehow (and I’m not sure how) there is now a Beretta 92D Centurion sitting in my Gun Closet, just waiting to be taken to the range this weekend. Like I said, I’m not entirely sure how it happened.
As a side effect, I now have just as many Berettas as I have Taurus guns. I sense jealousy in the Gun Closet.
