Smile when you say that....

Smile when you say that....
After the 24th of this month I have to call my nephew El Tee.......


.....

Commissioning ceremony via Skype. Because of C19...

....

I don't have to get dressed up and show up in person.... But damned if I kinda wish I did.


Now begs the question - should I get him a sword, a 1911a, or a Beretta model 92 for a commissioning gift?


I'm leaning towards the .45....

The sword. Everyone should own swords.

He was over here a few weeks ago on the pistol range and I made him feel really bad about being bested profusely by an old crippled guy...

And no - zero chance of him"letting " me score higher.... I have been shooting with him since childhood.. I know how well he shoots.

I just shoot better...

I kinda like that too... But he's a ground pounder (Army) and I know he would prefer a handgun...

Swords are cool. I got this one in Japan in 1981.

Won’t the army supply him with a gun? Seems the least they could do.

Congrats to him.  A new butter bar?

If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.
