    Scored a hundred and twenty rounds of 5.56 the other day. I'm taking half and giving half to my pops so that we can go shoot our AR-15's together.

    Think I'm gonna go with a Big Skinny wallet (he suffers from Costanza syndrome) and a nice bottle of wine.

    My pops likes to tinker with wood. So, I think I might get him a book on chip carving and a second carving knife. He has a leatherman and knife already that he really likes. Fixed blade Browning is still on his belt if I remember correctly. Might look into a flashlight, though. I doubt he carries one.

    I got mine a JetBeam BC20 and some rechargable CR123's: So he can throw out all those dang $2 flashlights he leaves everywhere!

    I really like the JetBeam UI though, I want one for myself now too.

    My parents just moved and my dad got rid of an entire pickup truck load of books. I thought it would be funny to give him this...

    But when he opens it up, it holds a surprise...

    Gave my dad the Vic Spirit today. He was totally fooled by the romance novel hiding place. I think he was a little disappointed he didn't get to read the book. It looked pretty steamy.

    I got my dad one of those big green barrels for brush and grass trimmings. It was on the top of his list.

    Aren't dad's weird? How come you can't get mom gifts like that and have her be happy?

    My dad got a Sipik SK68, two 14500 batteries, and a charger. Now he can chase the cat out of the tree at night with something other than a Maglite AA. :)

    My daughter got me an extra poopy diaper for father's day. :p
