One of my very good buddies on the board felt bad that I had to sell some of my stuff over Memorial Day so he found me a scope to buy for my old M14 rifle.

I really appreciated the thought, my wife less so and I haven't seen her or the rifle for a day now, kids say she went hunting upstate what ever that means..... she also took along my buddies picture, strange....

We sure are going to miss him.

But he shouldn’t feel bad. I’ve spent over $12k in others’ money in the past month or so.

I did warn you that I was an EXPENSIVE friend to have lol but I am glad you got it and are happy. It will look great on your M14 and if Frankie can cut back on his pipe tobacco it should be paid for in the next 15 years.

Yes, very pleased with it and it will look great on the rifle (if she ever comes back with it). Now all I need is a 1915/1918 Colt Vickers check lever assembly! The one that is riveted to the right side plate.

If it will make your wife happier you can send the scope to me as it would look good on my rifle as well!

Keep your head low, toolman. I've met redroth's wife, so I can tell you to not take this lightly. Maybe if he lets Frankie out of the salt mines, he can track her down and talk her out of doing the deed. The salt mines have pretty well run dry these days anyway, so Frankie should have nothing better to do.

So.... I took Lucky#13's advise and sent Frankie out to upstate NY to find her and tell her if she just comes back, I would buy her a nice Gucci handbag and some new shoes. Since Frankie works in the salt mine he has great night vision and found her in a Ghillie suit about 300 meters from ToolmanM203's palatial estate, she was lying low and had a bead on the new van parked outside just waiting for him to come out.

Well as luck would have, he was able to carefully approach her and calm the she devil down and swore on his mothers grave that she would get the Gucci bag and shoes from me when she got home. Well in a flash she had handed the rifle and Ghillie suit to Frankie, and put on an N95 mask, put on a sexy black T-shirt with the phrase, "Black Lives Matter" which she had recently received as a gift from L999here, and hopped an Uber to the airport.

So I know what your going to say, wow that Gucci bag and stiletto heeled shoes must have set you back a ton of money, well you know those riots in Beverly Hills last night and the looting of Rodeo Drive stores....

So this morning as she was still on the red-eye I drove down to Inglewood and right across the street from the Forum were these very nice gentlemen hawking genuine Gucci hand bags and beautiful pairs of shiny red stiletto heels for $100 each still with store tags and only a hint of smoke.

She is going to be thrilled! Thank you gentlemen for all your kind suggestions and offers to take the scope to help a fellow forum member stay out of trouble, really you guys are the best!

Final update, wife is back, has her swag and is off to the local supermarket in her best evening dress, shiny red stiletto heels, and new Gucci bag.

I even went back to Inglewood to thank the guys who sold me the stuff. The shoe guy was gone but the other gentlemen with the bags still had a few more.
