So today we had the pre-assessment portion of the rifle instructor class. This basically means that the NRA's Training Counselor takes you to the range and hands you a rifle to see if you know what the hell you're doing. It's not hard -- my work schedule has played havoc with my range time of late, but I did well enough to get a high-five from the TC. Afterwards, one of my classmates mentioned that he was looking for a gun shop willing to do some wheeling and dealing; he needed to sell off some guns he had to get other guns he wanted. Naturally, we asked what he was getting rid of, and one of the items was a Smith & Wesson Model 29. Nickel-plated. Basically new in box.
I have a weakness for nickel-plating. It's *pretty.* And he named a great price, and I said, "Sold."
So, yeah, *another* gun. Yay! Gratuitous gun pics will be forthcoming.
