Last night one of them involved my being on a quest for a new pistol.
I went to a Roanoke gun shop and sought guidance for something compact.
The clerk said, “I have the perfect pistol for you.”
He dug deep into his cabinet and pulled out this beautiful little Sig Sauer that fit in my palm. It came outfitted with a night-vision scope (that looked like an EO Tech sight) AND a laser sight. It was chambered in .220 Swift. (Interesting pistol cartridge, huh?) And, again, it fit in my palm.
Where did this come from?
Well, I was admiring the Sig P220R at the SHOT Show. But I’m really not in the market for one. (Not really NOT in the market for one, either.) And, obviously, my work yesterday had guns on my mind for most of the day.
Anyway, this was the coolest pistol ever and I was ready to buy it. I said, “How much?”
He said, “$2,200.”
The dream ended at that point.
