Hello from Knoxville

Here is my story of how I arrived at this forum. I was in the market for a Hydrohoist boat lift once my tax refund arrived in June. After consideration the wife decided 8K for a boat lift was a little too much for our budget, so the plans were scrapped. Since the tax refund was still intact, I was able to convince my wife after the recent gun control crap regarding the Orlando nightclub shooting it was time instead for us to get an AR-15. I got mine at Buds Gun Shop in Sevierville, and while we there picked up a S&W 60 revolver for my wife.

At this point you might be thinking, why didn't this guy join a Smith and Wesson forum? Well, while we were waiting for the background check to complete, my wife wandered over to a "East TN Friends of the NRA" table where they were selling raffle tickets at $20 a pop for a 1 in 200 chance to win not one, not two, but three spanking new Kimber semi-autos. My wife (who I'll forever love for doing this) bought a ticket, and damn a week later she gets a call that she won! So I (I mean we), are now the proud owners of a Micro Carry, an Ultra Carry II, and a Gold Match II! I always compared Kimber firearms to Mercedes Benz cars, luxury models that I won't get to shoot or drive. To own three of them now is awesome! Great to be here!

Oh, my. That is one lucky young lady you have there. You'd better send her out for some Powerball tickets.

Congrats on all the new firearms and welcome to KT

Welcome from Northeast, Pa. The S&W 60 was the first gun I bought and I still have it. Congratulations on your new Kimber's.
