Idiot Scratch No More

Those that have been around on KT for a few years will remember the story of GiGi buying her first UCII and after the first range session a good cleaning was needed and as I was putting it back together the worst thing that could have happened did happen. Marshall created an idiot scratch on her new gun. Now I had never done that on any gun before or since. She wasn't happy one bit, but she also didn't kick my ass which I really deserved.

Fast forward 4 years and I still hadn't taken care of that scratch for her and a few weeks ago she decided that she wanted a Micro 9 so that she could carry it on her hip and not in her purse like she did with her UCII. I threw out a possible trade, my Micro 9 for her UCII....She agreed and we made the trade happen.

Since I already had a UCII Raptor, I now owned two black guns that were the same and I really didn't want to carry a gun with an idiot scratch {like she did for 4 years}, so I decided to have it Cerakoted and went with a Satin Aluminum color..

Here are the results.....

So let me get this straight....I bought a brand new gun to which you defaced with the first cleaning. Now after recently trading your Micro with me, you somehow find it within you to get the gross defect corrected for a couple of hundred dollars??!! Wow...now I guess I know how unimportant you thought the Idiot Scratch was when I owned the gun. But oh no, Marshall can't keep a gun in his safe with the IDIOT SCRATCH he made?!!! Wow.....just wow....

LMAO....The deal in the trade was that I would keep the gun and have it Cerakoted and I would keep it in the safe until she's ready to resume ownership. I wasn't about to let her sell her first Kimber after all....

Luck of the Irish Grips

Maybe the cloverleaf will keep the idiot scratch from returning....

Marshall,Marshall,Marshall,
They do not say woman are like elephants because of their size it is because they never forget anything and I do mean anything! Do not ask me how I know this. Also no offense to you Gigi you are welcome here in sunny southern CA. anytime just be sure to bring your Micro Kimber with you we cannot get those here in CA. maybe we can work out a trade.
