    The coolest thing ever. Free XD for Me.

    I wanted to share this with everyone

    So I have been shopping for a Handgun for about the past 6 months (I like to take my time so I get what I want) and I had happily made the decision that I would be picking up a Springfield XD-40 Service model. I had intended to purchase this gun in November but life being what it is the oven in my house broke and I had to replace it. No worries I will save up and get it in January. Well I am a youth pastor and we have a gun dealer in our church and I had been talking with him incessantly about the XD, he is a fan as well. I guess one of my other parishioners had heard us talking and one day wrote down the model that I wanted and yesterday evening at about 5 o’clock showed up at my house and said “I heard you talking to Mac about this gun and I just wanted to bless you, so I went to Sportsman’s today and got it for you. Enjoy”. That’s right he (and I have been sworn to secrecy not to reveal who this person was) Just handed it to me watched me open it and said “Have fun see you in church tonight”. Not only did he get the exact gun but he went ahead and got it with the Trijicon tritium night sights and 250 rounds for me to shoot. Yesterday was a good day.

    That's awesome! I don't know why, but talking guns and church in the same conversation always seems odd to me. Very cool for you.
