As some of you may know, my wife and I just had our second child, Isla. But since having a baby girl, I have come to realize that a couple of minor little things have changed......LIKE MY WHOLE FREAKIN' PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE!!! ;-)

So in addition to renewing my NRA membership and stocking up on 7.62 and 7.65, I noticed that I see the world a bit differently. For instance, the other day, as I was googling series fuel tanks, I linked on this photo and the only thought that came to mind was............ I wonder what year SIII that is?

I wonder how much it would take to get the owner to part out that sweet suicide knob...

I noticed the shifter knob is non-factory. I wonder what transmission it has?

Noticed that, too! Girl was kind of in the way of checking out the rest of the interior. Ugh, I'm so ruined. Will I ever recover? ;-)

I wonder who did the upholstery...

Congratulations man.

I started slowing down when I hit 20,000 rounds of 45ACP in storage. Oh, if you call into the NRA (I think the special is still going on, but you have to call in) the lifetime membership is only $500.

We recently got a massive shipment of .22lr HV, and most was gone by lunch time in our main retail shop... What is this, 2012?

Thank you!

20k rounds before you slowed? That's some volume! Did you have to build an addition to your house? ;-)

NRA Lifer? Yup. Still $500. Thanks for the heads up. I'm now on THE LIST! Come and get me Hillary! ;-)
