The Occupods and other Socialist losers ran around yesterday telling us all to "strike" today and not work, go to school or shop.
Well even if I supported their cause (which I don't, whatever it is), I fail to see how making myself poorer and dumber for a day would help it. So I did what any good American would do instead: I worked an extra job and put some overtime cash in my pocket, and I spent some of it on a nifty pre-owned Sig P229.five Occupy anarchists in Cleveland just tried to do. Keep it up, Occupiers...you'll all go the way of the Carrier Pigeon and the Dodo Bird if you try to declare war on those of us who love this country.
But back to my new Sig...
Several months ago, I found a seller who had some of these for sale at a pretty good price. I immediately called up Aaron at The Shekel and told him about these Sigs. "Come on, Aaron," I enticed. You know that you want one. If you buy one, I'll buy one. What do you say?"
Naturally, in response to my arm-twisting, he bought one. Now I had intended to buy one too (honest!), but as I was going back on line to do so, I found this Trapdoor Springfield being offered by another seller, and...well you know how that sort of thing goes. By the time I went back to get one of the Sigs, they were sold out. Meanwhile, Aaron was inviting me to get with him for some shooting. "And when you come, bring your new Sig!"
Uh, yeah. About that...
I'd always kinda felt like Lucy tricking Charlie Brown into taking a run at the football for talking him into buying his Sig and then not buying one myself. But now I got one like I said that I would, and that's a load off of my conscience, let me tell you!
And come the day, I can probably pacify more rampaging Occupiers with it than I could with the Trapdoor Springfield, too.
Next purchase: a .357 Sig conversion barrel for it, so I can make use of all of the .357 Sig brass that I've scrounged up off of the range!
