My deepest condolences on your loss. Maybe you can use the psychological distress suffered at the loss of a cherished heirloom as leverage with the wife to go out and get yourself something new? :sarcastic:
I already got something to replace it. My daughter's Police department traded in all their Glock Md.22 in .40 cal. and I was able to buy her gun back. This is the weapon that she was issued 6 year's ago when she joind the department. I told her that I will leave it to her in my will.
