    I was supposed to get the RAP compact, but I finagled getting it early.

    I did find a vibratory tumbler, a 4 hole conversion kit for my old manual advance Lee 3 hole turret press, along with the auto advance ram, plus enough auto disc powder measures and risers to have a dedicated turret complete for all the handgun rounds I load for under the tree.

    I got 2 gift certificates for the "Angery Crab" restaurant. They have wonderful KING crab legs. I can eat a pound of them.

    But I didn't get any guns or ammo or nothing like that. She said our house looks like an arsenal now. Now when can you have too many guns. I can see have 2 many wives and I've already done that stupid trick!!

    Nothing at all and not disappointed one tiny bit. She has no interest to know about my firearms or related items and I'm fine with that too. Not one to play the "buy me this" card and for the most part if one of us wants something, we simply buy it. besides, were the wife to venture out into the gun room and take a look at what I have/don't have she may find some things she maybe shouldn't know are there. ;) LOL
