    Last week I married the most wonderful woman in the world :)

    The next day we were opening presents with the family. I opened the gift from my Best Man and found not one, but two guns! A Walther P22 for Sarah and a 1911 for me.

    Bestest Best Man ever!

    In truth, I had sold him the Walther a few months ago to help finance a suppressor, and he has had the 1911 for a year or so. Still good though!

    Is he available to be my best man? I'm already married but I may be able to talk my wife into a redo!

    My wife bought me a Stevens 200 in .22-250 that I wanted for a wedding gift. Not the nicest firearm ever, but it meant a hell of a lot to me. I'll be building it into a better varmint rifle once I get done playing with my Mosin. I'll never sell it, as it means way to much to me.

    Congratulations, remember marriage isn't a sprint it's a marathon. And that best man deserves some really good beer.

    If you have to ask a question like that you need to learn what a straw purchase is.
