We decided that it was time for the Oldest Island Boy to have his
own shotgun so we planned to get him one for Christmas.
The Island King was in charge of finding the right gun and within
a few days he found the one he wanted to give him.
The Rossi Trifecta.
The Trifecta is named such because it comes with 3 barrels instead
of 1. A 20 gauge shotgun barrel, a 22 long rifle barrel and a 243
center fire rifle.
I thought we were just getting him a 20 gauge shotgun but the
Island King insists this is better because he basically got 3 guns
for the price of 1 AND the Oldest can use the 22 to plink targets all
Once we had the gun in hand we got to talking about how the best
hunting weather is between now and Christmas and that after Christmas
it's usually colder and rains more.
So, we gave it to him early.
He had no idea it was coming and I wish I had a picture of the
look on his face when his dad handed him the box.
They spent a long time, learning about the gun and it's different
barrel and then the next day we went to Tower Camp, where he spent
the entire day shooting.
And then gave me a nice review
I'm glad we gave it to him early but I told him that on Christmas
Eve I'm going to wrap it and on Christmas morning I want a big
surprise face smile for the camera when he opens it.
