Guns for Christmas

1851 ball and cap revolver replica manufactured by F.Lli Pietta. .44 cal.

Among many things, I’m fortunate to work for an employer that doesn’t look at guns as “evil objects.”  The owner of the company has guns himself.  It’s a nice arrangement.  What I received for Christmas from him is evident of that.  The 1851 ball and cap revolver is likely one of the more thoughtful gifts I’ve received in awhile.

    Merry Christmas!
