I bought a gun!

Sort of.  It's a pellet gun.  Technically it's not a firearm but this thing would give you a hurtin!  It's a
Remington Summit and I got it at Dicks Sporting Goods.  Also, it looks the price went back up already so get yours soon before it goes up again!

Why did I get one?  Well, I really want a gun, and I've always wanted a "bb gun" and since my wife gave me half of her shopping spree winnings and told me to blow it on whatever, I did!

It's a really nice one without getting too too expensive and it's super cheap to shoot and you can even shoot it indoors (be mindful of doors).  I saw a guy online kill a turkey with one!

Shooting is just a blast (no pun intended) but it really is fun.  And this thing is accurate.  I haven't really gotten the scope sighted in 100% but it's very close.  I need a good gun rest (which I'll just build with random stuff) to really test it out.

It's really hefty too.  It's about 8 pounds and feels comfortable.  Also feels very "quality."  I'm not worried about it having problems.  It's a break barrel and single shot at a time but that's fine with me.  Also, with it being a one pumper, it's super fast and keeps good velocity, up to 1,000 feet per second!  Real guns, .22 cal zoom by at just about 1280 fps. 

So anyway, that was a little gift to myself, courtesy of my wife really.  I love it!  Now if she'll only let me hang it over the fireplace...
