Uncle Reminded Me How Fun Pins Are

I started playing Atari when I was a kid and created my own pattern to beat Pacman.  Never had a gaming system of my own, but I played it at my Dad's house when I was there.  Used to play the stand-up arcade games and the occassional pinball machine thru my teens.  I currently have a mancave with Joust and a table with multi-game.  My Aunt & Uncle came over to visit this past week.  My Uncle had no desire to play the arcade games, and when asked, he said "I'm a pinball guy and maybe you'll have one when I'm able to make it over next year".  I've been thinking about that since.  I used to love pinball, but played the arcade games more as a kid since I could make a quarter last much longer.  I really want my boys to see how much fun pinball is.  Also, my Uncle is also going blind in the only eye he has left and he has to do injections every couple of weeks.  It's only a matter of time.  So, I'm in the hunt to find a pin.
