    Your wife did very good indeed, YAY WIFE!! As for the pictures, Its kind of like the photos EVERYONE from my era has of a bare bottomed kid with them peeking from under a blanket. Try that now and it is kiddie porn.

    Why do people have to be so anal when it comes to other peoples lives? Possibly it started when a family no longer consisted of a working husband and a stay at home mom like back in the day when a family was a family!

    This world has become such a jealous place of keeping up with the Jones' that people got so overextended they have to look for things to gripe about.

    I myself see nothing wrong with your pictures, But you know someone somewhere is saying look at that kid playing with a gun! If that is wrong I too am guilty as I had my nephew shooting at the age of 6. By the way nice looking son you have. He will grow up to be a good looking young man that will know respect for a gun instead of just stuffing one in his waste band for kicks.

    Cycloneman said, "teach your boy well. I see the archery stuff in the backgroun and take him fishing. Instill in him what you need to now before all the evil sucks him in. Enjoy your time with him." I whole heartedly agree. WTG Cycloneman!!!

    Nice RIA! I've only had experience with the commander length and have found these to be be reliable and very fun firearms. Those are the same grips I would have chosen :D

    Nice Christmas present. Also, if firearms are in the house with kids, then kids should be taught firearm safety, for everyones protection. Nothing wrong with that, and everything right with that process.

    40caljoe, Yep. I let my son(6 years old) handle(unloaded) all my guns when I'm with him. I teach him all the safe stuff. He never touches any of my guns unless I'm right there. I kind of bore him so he doesn't WANT to mess with any guns. Plus Max is more into playing with his DS games and playing on the computer...go figure.;)

    Yours looks from the picture to be a government model with 5" barrel. Commander is 4" or 4.25" I believe.

    Nice pistol! I like those new grips. Get yourself a Gunvault, had mine 2 years, works flawless every time. I let my son (at the time 8) shoot my Firestar M45 with me holding on to his hands from behind of course. Had everyone at the range watching us. He yelled "Holy Crap I never want to do that again!" Never seen so many old guys laugh so hard. If you want to get rid of those smoothies, I have a new set of checkered double diamond grips I would trade for them.
