OK, being low on money is a crappy feeling, but being low on money because your house is been on the market for over a year and having to make 4 mortgage payments is a crappier feeling. But hopefully, help is on the way - the new house is getting a new, nicer 2nd mortgage and some much needed cash out. And the conventional 30 year mortgage limits (i.e. the jumbo limit) has been raised substantially from $417k to over $700k, so many more buyers will be eligible for loans that can cover the price of my old house. Hopefully these 2 things will make more buyers come look at the house and perhaps we could even see a few offers come in.

Anyway, far more importantly, imports of this new rifle, the GSG-9, are now coming in - and I want one! It's essentially a .22 caliber version of the H&K MP5A2, with 22 round magazines and the possibility of a suppressed version directly from Gemtech. So it's considerably cheaper to both own and operate than the real deal - and I'm sure it's fun to shoot, just ask Tapestry about the real thing - she had fun shooting it!

So anyone going to come with me to the big gun show in Harrisburg, PA, next weekend? I'll buy dinner.

Well, I'd love to go with you - but I don't know if you needed to know that or not - I'm thinking that was already understood!

Perhaps some of our friends will join us!
