Default Just how weird is my brother?

Lemme just say, today was an eye opener. I knew he was strange, hell all of my family is strange, myself included. But I simply never realized just how odd he is.
Let me set the picture for you: I took him to a local gun show today. All kinds of serious hardware, lots of ARs, AKs, just about every style and model of shotgun ever made. Plenty of military surplus for middlin' good prices too. And tons of accessories, parts, all the good gun show fun stuff, right down to the beef jerky booth. So what single item in the entire room of shootin' iron catches Brian'* eye hard enough for him to actually pull out his wallet? (scroll down)

I think Brian (Gonneville) is 27.

For some reason, him buying a Tonka truck doesn't surprise me

I have to agree. Those metal Tonka toys were great. Now everything is made of plastic.....even some guns.


I just bought a can of "Bear Spray"......for bears of course.

Yeah, he'* 28. It wouldn't be quite as funny if he didn't drive a semi for a living, I guess.

What can I say, it brought back wonderful childhood memories of hitting him over the head with a similar truck...
