In the figurative sense, not literaly. My Wife buy's me a firearm of some sort every Christmas. When times's were lean it might be a $39.95 8MM Turkish Mauser. As credit's increased and the debit's dropped, Browning BAR's and Colt 2nd Generation SAA pistol's began appearing. Now, my Wife is a smart woman. A experienced teacher with a Master's degree in education, but she is not a "gun person". About a week before Christmas she asked for my wish list and as I was going out the door I said a 9MM Luger. What's that? She asked. Here's where I screwed up. "It's WWII German Army pistol, I said. I want very good condition. The local dealer will know what it is. 9MM Luger is the caliber." Come Christmas Day the familiar heavy package was presented to me and I opened it and found a Walther P-38, of course in 9MM LUGER. My mistake was saying WWII pistol. The Luger was really a WWI pistol that was used in WWII. My fault entirely. No I did NOT let on!

You have just gotten a NEAT piece of history. :beer: Nope, not a Parabellum but that can come on your birthday or as an anytime gift. Enjoy it Terry. You're lucky to have someone who loves you so much.

Well if you ever really do shoot yourself in the foot, I have it on good authority that all you have to do is pour scalding water onto the wound. Gunkid said it worked for him!!!
