    Well, I am still in shock. My wife is surprised. I think once she gets over the shock, she'll start to look forward to it. We were teetering on not having children at all. So, it is a surprise.

    I'll have to cut back on shooting now to save money. And, I'll also have to get a gun safe in about a year.

    My mom stated she'd buy all the nursery stuff for us.

    Man... a lot to think about...

    I didn't think I would be able to handle it (jury is still out - 2 daughters aged 13 and 15 so I've got about 8 more years to see how they turn out) but I found myself growing sufficiently to meet requirements.

    Its both the grandest of adventures and potentially the most harrowing. Your life is *truly* no longer just your own. The highs in your life will be much higher with your children, the lows, well, can be pretty low. Marriage involves two people for a reason. If you take proper care and devote to it enough time, your partnership can reach levels you've never dreamed of, and that's good, because your family deserves it...

    Enough. Cigars and brandy all 'round. Gentlemen, I give you Papa Shipwreck!

    You are nowsentenced to 18 to life. Congrads, many have lived threw it before. Advise most parents spend 2 years teaching the child to walk and talk then 16 years telling them to sit down and shut-up. Keep working on your aim in case it is a girl. Great news, enjoy, get plenty of sleep now you will need it soon enough.

    That is awesome! Congrats! You always complained about how expensive it is the shoot the .45. With a kid it may be time for another scale down! Maybe a P22?

    Congratulations SW! Kids are great, I am happy for you and your wife. It is nice to have a shooting buddy and someone to pass your guns on to.

    Way to go! My wife is currently working on #2, due in May. You're going to love it. But you're shooting budget is going to be converted to the diaper budget.
