So I Stopped Into The Half Price Bookstore…

I have to admit, I like shiny things which smell new coming out of a box delivered by the UPS driver.  Those are always fun preps to unbox and the anticipation from the time one clicks “buy” online until the item(s) arrive is tough to suppress.  Even as I type this I have some items …

Look, if I had the cheddar I’d go for a super sweet under bed gun storage unit.  Maybe the $700 system offered at the Glock Store or the $6k safe offered elsewhere.  The reality of the situation is that I feel the need to have some firepower close (other than my main safe) as you …
