Eric has a new toy!

For months on end Eric has been talking about buying a shotgun. At first I didn't think he was serious, but then he kept talking about it. I think it all really started when we went to visit our friends the Bakers down in St. George. They took us out shooting in the desert, and it was a lot of fun! Just in this past year his desire to be a gun owner has increased 100 fold. He would love to go to Cabela's to look at the guns. I can almost guarantee that he checked the KSL classifieds at least weekly to see if there were any great deals. Then we started hanging out with our friends Mike and Lisa more and guess what? Mike likes guns too. One week-end they went to Montana and Mike came home with a shotgun. The next week-end Mike and Eric went shopping for guns. That was this past week-end. I went on a hike with one of my old roomies while Eric went shopping. When Eric got home he told me that he had found the one that he wanted. It turns out that I had found a gun on sale randomly when I was looking for a swimsuit at Big 5 Sporting Goods here. I sent him that ad in an e-mail that he ended up checking after going gun shopping. The gun that I had sent him was the same gun that he had found but for $70 less. What a deal shopper I am. That was the first and only gun I found for him. I did well!! Anyways, we went to the store that day and bought it. However, we did have to prove our Utah residency, but since neither of us have a Utah license, it caused a little bit of a problem. Nothing was going to stand in Eric's way of getting that gun though. We eventually got it figured out and Eric is now the proud owner of a 12 gauge shotgun. Congratulations Eric! I don't have a picture of him with it yet, but after we go shooting this week-end I will post one for sure.

My husband is on a gun kick too...we now own 4 (3 were given to him and one was just purchased). He looked a lot on It's like EBAY only for guns/ammo. All of a sudden I feel like we should be dressing in Camo and shooting wildlife. So maybe our husbands can go shoot stuff while we go do girly scrapbook or go to the mall?
