    My brother is stupid!

    My brother was in town from the Army yesterday. We hadn't been to the range in a while. And he was talking about how well he liked my new P99 AS. he kept going on and on about how he would like to to have one for carry when he's not on post. At the end of the range session I told him he could have it as a gift. I never got him a gift for graduating from West Point or getting married. I figured that this would be a good opportunity to make up for not giving him any gifts. I even had the box and paperwork and 4 mags for him to take home. I like my p99 a lot, I just figured that I would buy another one for myself in a month or two.

    The moron flat out would not take the gun. He said he wanted to buy his own, even though he wanted one just like mine. Maybe if next time I put it in wrapping paper and put a bow on it, it will seem more like a gift and he will take it.

    Seriously though, what kind of idiot turns down a free gun? Much less a free P99?

    Maybe he knows how much you like the gun and is being honorable. He can probably afford his own and just wanted to make you feel good about yours. Don

    He's a man of honor and you should be very proud of him, I am. Please thank him for his service to our great country.

    Yes, I will thank him.

    If anybody I know deserves the stinken free gun, it is him. He just got back from a really rough tour, he was in one of the worst areas in Baghdad. He is a 1st Lieutenant and a tank commander. And a few months back his Abrams tank was destroyed by an IED. Thank God him and his crew got out OK. Next time I offer him a free gun he had better take it. I'm not going to let him get away with that again.

    that was a really nice thing for you to do by offering him your gun. i think its a pride thing, because i know i don't like getting things of such value for free. i have to feel like I've earned it or something. but still that was a real nice thing for you to do...

    Same here. Plus there's a bond that comes with picking out your own gun...for me anyway.

    Give him a gift certificate for the price of the gun. He keeps his pride you have again given the offer of the pistol and you get to keep yours.

    I'll be honest with you, I don't think he was trying to be nasty or anything like that. I wouldn't take a gun that I knew was someone's pride and joy either unless they were about to die or something and they just wanted to know it would be in good hands after they were gone.

    Sounds alot like my little brother. When he got back from Desert Storm I thanked him for his service and told him how happy I was that he was back and only with minor injuries (we never got along as kids and got into some pretty bad fights) but he told me, "It was just a job, no big deal, I'm home now." Later, my sister in law showed me all of the medals and citations he received for bravery. He won't take anything I offer him either. I think the Army did it to him cause he would definitely take anything I had before he went in, whether I offered it to him or not.

    Why don't you drive him to your local gun store and have him pick the gun he wants. You buy it as a gift for him. For his personal service in the military. Tell him it's your way of saying, thanks brother.

    Give him a big salute for all of us.. Hug your brother tell him you love him then drive him to the local shop and offer to buy him one.. If he still won't take it leave it be..

    Pride is a funny thing.
