UPS says delivery tomorrow. Dropped a hint tonight to son-in-law that something was in shipment, but didn't say what!

Got it today. Overall first impression is, not TC quality, but very cool looking and should be perfect for son-in-law. I'll put a picture of it over the weekend.

not yet got to head to work so I looked it over for any shippment damage and put back into the box. Son-in-law won't know a good trigger from a bad one. I will however, do a good once through tomorrow and see how the trigger is and everything else. It does look nice with all matching camo and the nickel finish barrel/receiver. When we get some decent weather we'll see how it shoots. I'll have to figure out the best hunting bullet/powder combination. I don't like pellets, however, to keep things very simple for someone's first ML, this may be the the case.

Hopefully the picture comes through. Has a pretty good light trigger pull!
