Snooze you lose.

Whoa. I checked on GunBroker to see if the other two Royal IIs were still there and they were gone. Late last week there were four, which I thought was surprising because they have been so hard to find. And description on one of the four said it took two years to get!

That thread about Custom II vs. Royal II lit a fire under my butt and I decided to quit waiting and pull the trigger. Now, my Royal II is in a brown truck heading to me but if I had waited another day I'd be sitting here knowing I missed out and that obnoxious voice in my head would be saying "Snooze you lose!"

Sometimes you just have say "let's do this" and then get 'er done.

Hanging around here isn't very good for the wallet.

I'm hoping Her Majesty will arrive tomorrow at my nearby LGS. "Usually takes a couple of days." the guy said. Tomorrow will be two days. Not that I'm antsy...I just can't wait!

Pics will follow, of course.
