I have GOT to stop drinking on Sundays...

Buddy and wife had us over for dinner at their house and his fondness for “good stuff” is as high as mine.  We sampled some mighty fine 18 year old single malt Scotch, a bottle of great Brunello with steaks for dinner, then a bottle of a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by some fine cognac with coffee and while enjoying some great conversation I bought a **** .270 on Gunbroker 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

****!!!!!

    Seems alcohol provides you some clarity. Stick with it. I'm glad you kicked the Kool-Aid.

    Nothing good comes from alcohol and GB.

    A true rifleman's cartridge?

    The spirits of motivation?

    Proponents can have as much fun as detractors :D

    Just tell her, "I put the clothes in the dryer. Replaced the broken sprinkler head. Fed the cat. Quit my job. Mowed the lawn. Bought a .270. Changed the oil in your car, and gassed it up while I was at it. And look....here's a nice bottle of Cab Sav....pull up a chair while I light the Tiki's......".

    You'll be okay.

    She’ll know it’s BS as soon as she hears the first line.  I’m not allowed ANYWHERE near her dryer and I have no clue how the sprinklers work...  I’m screwed...

    Ok, confession time. 

    I’ve actually spent all my years searching for the perfect representative for the classic .270 Win. 

    I haven’t found it yet. Maybe one day.

    Not this one.  In my drunken defense, I got a stupid good deal and I love the platform.

    If you ended the evening by buying a .270. . .

    The "fine" aged liquor probably came out of a backyard still yesterday. . . 

    The Cabernet probably came out of a box. . .

    The coffee was probably Sanka or Taster's Choice. . .

    You should probably be expecting onset of e-coli symptoms from the Steak-Ums. . .

    And your "witty conversationalist" was probably a bi-polar meth head.

    Time to seriously reconsider your choices. :D

     LOL at the big slug

    ****!!!!!

    You need new buddies..........ones that dont let you do what you did and have at least some semblance of morals.

    Edited to add: Is this 'buddy' a 270 owner?..........Does he even exist?...........or is your first post just a made up story to cover the fact that you are 'coming out of the closet' so to speak........

    Enquiring minds and all that......
     


    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
