Merry Christmas 2005 To All-

Well, I t'was just wondering what my THR family received from Old St. Nick?:uhoh:

I didn't really need anything, but I received one of the first Springfield
Armory XD-45 ACP's to hit Alabama. It comes NIB, unfired with
all the GEAR and two 13 round magazines~! Can't wait too get it to
the range.

Wow , an XD 45. Congrats!!!! Please post a pic, if you can. 13rd mags, that sounds awesome.
Nothing Gun related for X-mas. But I did get a 21" LCD monitor for visits to THR!

December 25, 2005, 10:11 AM
I had ordered a Milt Sparks VM-2 for my Glock 23 from Top Gun Supply and it arrived on Christmas eve. My wife and I decided that we would make the holster "from her", along with the other non gun related things like the Family Guy seasons 1 & 2 on DVD and some new undies.

I'd be having a very merry Christmas if it weren't for this cold from hell I'm dealing with right now. I hope you all have a happy, healthy and Merry Christmas!

December 25, 2005, 10:13 AM
I bought myself some bullets and primers, and a new bore brush. A guy is sending me a holster he doesn't use for my pistol, so I guess that's a gun-related Christmas present!

December 25, 2005, 10:15 AM
I got gift certificates to Midway USA and some .40 S&W ammo.

December 25, 2005, 10:18 AM
I received a NIB Colt 1991A1 for Christmas.

OK, OK.....I bought it for myself after receiving the blessing of SWMBO. She won't plunk down the money for a gift gun for me for fear of getting the wrong thing.

When Nebraska gets CCW passed this year (hopa, hopa, hopa!) it will be my carry gun.

Also the first gun with a pony on it for me.

December 25, 2005, 10:27 AM
dad passed on his 03 springfield rebarreled to 358 winchester. its a great gift and one that ill always treasure!

December 25, 2005, 10:34 AM
My wife bought me a Dillon Precision shooting mat...she said it pained her to look through "that catalog with all the girls with guns on it"

Kids got me 1st season of The Sopranos (sort of gun related)

My mom bought me a beer stein (for after shooting)

Bought myself an XD40 (although would love to have one of those XD45ACPs like ala dan)

Bought my wife diamond earrings (which allows me to keep buying guns)

December 25, 2005, 10:55 AM
Don't know since I'm at work. But I think there's a case trimmer and a tumbler under the tree somewhere.:cool:

edit: Yep! One Dillon case tumbler and one RCBS CasePro trimmer. Yeehaw!

December 25, 2005, 10:58 AM
With the help of a gift card (sister) and a $20 off coupon I ordered a Leupold 4X28MM handgun scope for one of my 629 Classics from Cabelas. Won't be here until late in the week so I guess I'll have a second Christmas this year. :)

December 25, 2005, 11:09 AM
I think the coolest thing I got was a CZ-52 Armorers kit to go with my two CZ-52s (http://home.mchsi.com/~davidkoch/myarms/CZ52s.JPG). It had all the parts except for only one magazine and everything is brand new (except that's it's from 1953).

Yea I know, kinda geeky. You'd have to be a Cruffler to understand. ;)


December 25, 2005, 11:11 AM
A book how to invade Fort Knox, how to disable an ICBM et cetera ;) "Don't try it yourself".

December 25, 2005, 11:51 AM
Guns and Ammo magazine subscription
Handgunner magazine subscription
And enough cash from the reclusive inlaws to make a chunk down on my next 1911... :D :evil: Muahahahahaha

December 25, 2005, 12:02 PM
No gun stuff,... I got 2 shirts and a shot of leg and all 3 were 2 sizes too big.

December 25, 2005, 12:02 PM
Well, for Christmas my family sent me a few war movies (Saving Private Ryan, Tae Guk Gi, Das Boot, Last of the Mohicans).

And my THR family is sending me some books (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=171620).

December 25, 2005, 12:11 PM
Well I did pretty good this year. One Daughter got me "Steel Canvas" by RL Wilson and the other got me "Winchester" by Wilson, excellent photographs in both. Sousal unit got me a Ruger NRA commemorative .22 pistol and a Caldwell Steady Rest. Hope every one else made out as well.

December 25, 2005, 12:12 PM
1 box of ammo. The Wolf Gold 7.62x54R 150 gr. FMJ.

December 25, 2005, 12:14 PM
I got a Cylinder & Slide Extreme Duty Sight for my M66-6. The sight picture for me is much better with the Hi-Viz front sight than the original V notch adjustable. Can't wait to get to the rang to check the POI.:)

December 25, 2005, 12:20 PM

December 25, 2005, 12:26 PM
I got the S&W 642 I asked for. Some ammo to go with it.

December 25, 2005, 12:30 PM
I got the big bottle of Johnny Walker Black Label. WOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Not that I'm implying it's firearm related :evil:

December 25, 2005, 12:48 PM

December 25, 2005, 12:48 PM
No gun stuff for me, but my 7 yr. old daughter got a preban AR with a .22 upper on it. And in her favorite colors to boot.

December 25, 2005, 01:12 PM
Savage Lee-Enfield and one of the last CMP '03A3's. Excellent Christmas, I would say.

December 25, 2005, 01:27 PM

two movies; A BRIDGE TOO FAR and ZULU

I haven't seen ZULU in many years. I hope it's as good as my memory says it is.

December 25, 2005, 01:38 PM
My wife and sister went in on an Insight X2 subcompact for my PT145 (only handgun I own with a rail). When I meet up with my sister in a little while, she'll be unwrapping a like-new CZ52 w/ammo.

December 25, 2005, 02:01 PM
About 600 rounds of ammo (1000 rounds in various calibers, rifle and handgun, and a case, (10 bricks) of good Remington Standard Velocity Target .22 LR.

a nice GPS unit, with color display, PC interface, and lotsa downloadable mapping memory.

a leather shoulder holster that is about 50 years old and very well used, that originally went with the old High Standard Longhorn Double-Nine, dad gave me the gun about 3 years ago, and now the holster... he got the gun and holster when he turned 18, (he's now 63) and i learned handgun safety and accuracy with this gun... and i'd far rather have this old beaten up holster for this gun, than anything new...

a nice shepherd scope for my .300 H&H magnum,

various gift cards to sporting goods stores (and wal-mart) to get accessories, guns and or ammo.

December 25, 2005, 02:28 PM
no gun stuff for me :(

Bunch of kitchen stuff and computer games.

December 25, 2005, 02:57 PM
I got the PC game Brothers In Arms: Earned in Blood. It's a WWII combat simulator. Got a problem, though. You have to use the middle mouse button to aim the weapons and my laptop touch pad only has left & right buttons. Guess I'll call tech support on Monday to see if there's any way to work around this.

December 25, 2005, 03:03 PM

The hubster got a Springfield 1911, the GI style, stainless steel with wooden grips. He's going to upgrade the sights, I think, but he was extremely surprised (I had put it on layaway several months ago and have been paying it off in little bits so it didn't raise his interest when he saw the bank statements). I am S-N-E-A-K-Y. ;)

I did get a bore snake for my .243. And I got two sets of binoculars, one small set of Bushnells from Oldest Son and one REALLY nice set of Nikon Action EX 8 X 40 binoculars from the hubster. I can watch the birds now while the deer are all carefully skirting my blind by, oh, 50 miles or so. :banghead:

Merry Christmas!!!


December 25, 2005, 03:15 PM
Liberty gun safe, he stopped at Gander Mountain a few days ago and some real big guys brought it in. :)

December 25, 2005, 03:34 PM

2 Boxes 12ga AA Low Recoil #8's (let the wife use those)

Cleaning kit for the 45.

Capital Punishment
December 25, 2005, 03:35 PM
I bought myself a Bushy. :)


December 25, 2005, 03:40 PM
I got a box of Remington FMJ .38 spl for my SP101 and a package of remoil wipes. Kinda surprising since it came from my brother and his new wife. Little brother usually thinks I'm nuts when it comes to guns. :rolleyes:

But I think he was happy that he managed to pleasantly surprise me.

Got some cash from my parents that I hope to put down on a certified pre-owned P220. :D


December 25, 2005, 03:43 PM

December 25, 2005, 03:43 PM
Merry Christmas all! I got an EGW firing pin stop and an Ed Brown Hardcore hammer. The firing pin stop is already riding in a Colt slide which sits atop an Ithaca frame. The hammer is waiting a loving embrace and engagement to a sear of comparable pedigree. Thankee Santy Claus!

December 25, 2005, 04:34 PM
Dad bought me a CZ-52. I was going to order one after Christmas, now I'll just buy more ammo. :D

December 25, 2005, 05:01 PM
I see most had a very nice surprise this morning. Congrats.

I just got little stuff like a mag, tfo nightsights, a rom ak kit, some cheap hand tools. But I am a little disappointed, I ordered a pocket holster for my peashooter and it was shipped fedex on the 9th from ny. I'm in fl, it got to orlando on the 13th. I'm thinking, damn, I should get this any day. Doesn't happen, no go, forgetit fidel. I keep checking the shipping status and on the 19th it shows arrived....now get this????......scaramento, ca. ***???? I email fedex, They won't acknowledge me...go figure!! If they only knew who I was....they would be part of the revolution ...the revolution to siberia, that is..So, it leaves siberia, I mean sacramento on the 21st..it took them two damn days to figure?? ...wth is this doing here.????.... So, it's on the slow boat to communist china now?????...fedex blalalalalalalala.:cuss:

December 25, 2005, 05:09 PM
I bought my dad an H&R Model 12 .22 target rifle. I may post a pic later.

December 25, 2005, 05:10 PM
I got some homemade deer jerky. =o
That's SORT of gun related...
I mean, how awesome are guns?
A 10/10 of awesome?
And deer jerky is at least a 10.
So they're very similar. >_>
And the deer was shot first. =o

Standing Wolf
December 25, 2005, 05:11 PM
The "Manage Attachments" button wouldn't work, so I put a snap shot of my newest Python in the Revolvers section.

December 25, 2005, 05:11 PM
Parents bought me a membership to the local range. No more range fees for the next year:)

December 25, 2005, 05:25 PM
I got a rain check for 45 ammo because Dick's was out of it 9.98 a box when it comes in
other than that spent time with Family

December 25, 2005, 05:28 PM
A Cabelas gift certificate and a Leupold Zero-Point boresighter.

December 25, 2005, 05:59 PM
My early Christmas present from my wife, in time for elk season, was a Savage 7mm Rem Mag. My dad got me an MTM Predator Shooting Rest, which I'll test this week, since I'm on vacation.

December 25, 2005, 06:02 PM
Trueblue, I am jealous. Good stuff there. Everyone my age drinks the cheap crap.

Not exactly gun related but I did get the Streamlight Ultra Stinger I asked santa for. That and some gift cards, one of which will go towards a new stock for my 870.

Oh, and the movie 'Shawn of the Dead" :D

December 25, 2005, 06:04 PM
Ak47 bayonette with bakelite handle
Glock 78 Field knife in Olive Drab
3 graphite 30 rnd mags for my mini-14

Other than that i got a nice CD player, a wireless router and internet card (which im using right now on my upstairs comp), "American Soldier", "Retreat, Hell!" A nice pool stick, and a very nice wind up pocket watch.

BTW- have to recommend those glock knives. Sharper than plato's wits and nice and thick, but also slim. very good deal for 25$.

December 25, 2005, 06:10 PM
My SO was very nice to me. She got me a box full of 1911 parts I've been craving.

Nowlin Speedemon Trigger Kit
S&A Arched MSH with magwell
Pachmayr American Legend Grips
Ed Brown Slide Stop
and a ten-pack of recoil springs


December 25, 2005, 06:11 PM
I know it ain't much but it's what I wanted.
I finally got rid of those POS thumb rest grips that were on my Arsenal Makarov!!


December 25, 2005, 06:39 PM
I guess they are gun relatedif only because I'll probably only wear them when I go hunting. I got a set of UnderArmor thermal undies in RealTree Hardwoods green! They are about two sizes too big for me but what the heck I love em anyhow. One heck of a great present from my new hunting partner, my son who just turned 16 and can now big game hunt with me. :cool:

I also got a gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods, that will probably go towardf ammo, some .35 Remington.:)

Merry Christmas to all.:)


December 25, 2005, 06:50 PM
I bought myself a Bushy. :)


That's cool, I bought myself a Shorty for the big "four- five" birthday a few years ago but I couldn't get a flash hider.

December 25, 2005, 08:02 PM
A great day of trap shooting with friends capped off by shooting my M38. First time I ever saw anyone else shoot it, the fireball was HUGE!!!!!!

December 25, 2005, 08:05 PM
I bought myself 2 - Glock 23's and a FN Forty-Nine 9mm. :D

December 25, 2005, 08:35 PM
My wife got me a CZ Kadet top end for my 75B.

Yeah! :D

December 25, 2005, 08:53 PM
my wife gave me a deactivated artillery shell ill try to post a pic off im still trying to id it.diameter is 6"or 155mm length 19"weight 47lbs

if i had to guess id say ww1 land or naval he shell. it has a large cavity for the explosive filler.

if i can id like to restore it to the proper color.

Loose Cannon,

I hate to tell you that is not a "deactivated artillery shell".

It is an elephant suppository - the kind they use at the circus when the elephant is stopped up and can't go #2. :eek:


December 25, 2005, 09:03 PM
Might be gun related, a neighbor gave me a beautiful hunting knife. He's an old guy and I'd helped him out over the past couple of years, and the other day he shows up on the porch with this knife all wrapped up.

December 25, 2005, 09:29 PM
I laughed so hard when I read this:

It is an elephant suppository that my rear end started to hurt. man the thought of putting something that size where the sun does not shine, even into an elephant - ROTFLMAO.:neener:

December 25, 2005, 09:51 PM
Is a Ruger Blackhawk in .45LC gun related?

Also, got my snowshoes, so I can go shooting and hunting in the winter :)

Only thing I wanted and didn't get was my Ka-Bar :(

But I do have enough money to pick it up when I go to Cabelas next week :)

December 25, 2005, 09:56 PM
Nothing gun related for me but my son sure enjoyed getting his 1st .45 ACP pistol. :D

lee n. field
December 25, 2005, 10:04 PM
Nothing in particular gun related. I intend to use some gift certificate money to get a portable workbench to attempt to clean up my reloading setup.

Oh, yeah, and my brother and I loaded up 50 rounds of .45ACP with Pyrodex, to see the flame and see if it would crud up an autoloader to the point on inoperability (no it did not).

December 25, 2005, 10:25 PM
My wife got me a Ruger SP-101, 5 shot, .357 snubbie.

I can't stop grinning!



December 25, 2005, 10:35 PM
I got 2 bulk boxes (1,100rds total) of .22 RF ammo. Plus some 12ga Buckshot, but its on backorder at Sportsmanguide. I also got some odd and ends gunsmithing tools.

Merry Christmas,

December 25, 2005, 10:41 PM
Hello all,
Wife got me a Galco IWB for my Para P12.
My folks got me a Streamlight M3.
I bought my son(3yoa) a 1st gen. G17.
Inlaws got me a gift cert. to WalMart = ammo
I'm gonna try to find a Sig Mosquito for my son.

Having kids is wonderful. Everytime I buy a gun I tell my wife "It's not for me, I'm doing it for the kids!"

Merry Christmas

December 25, 2005, 10:44 PM

December 25, 2005, 10:45 PM
Got a Burris 2X handgun scope to put in the S&K mount on my K-31, and a pair of Realtree gloves. And the "Land of the Dead" DVD, which is sorta gun related.

Dad's gift was still the coolest though, a shiny new Poulan chainsaw, with bar oil, two cycle oil, and gallon gas can. Big zombie medicine! :evil:



December 25, 2005, 10:51 PM
A Beamhit 190-3 (w/internal laser) practice system, yet another XD (.40 Service), both of which were used...and a mag pouch from the young'un. I musta been REAL good this year.

December 25, 2005, 10:54 PM
just a box of winchester 7.62x39 ammo in the stocking. i didnt really need it, but my dad thought it would b funny

December 25, 2005, 10:56 PM
Dear Hubby surprised me with a 9mm UltraStar! Way cool. I already have one but it is really worn. This one looks like new!

And I bought him a back massager. Which he needs after carrying a Hi-Power in a shoulder rig all through a ten-hour workday.


December 25, 2005, 10:58 PM
I guess you could say I bought myself a GP-100 4" for Christmas, as I picked it up on the 20th...

Santa brought me 500 rounds of .38 special, a speed loader, and some snap caps... oh yes, and a Kleen Bore "gun sock!"

December 25, 2005, 11:10 PM
Got a box of Aguila IQ 45ACP from a friend and a gift certificate from Dick's sporting goods that'll probably go toward a Mossberg 590 I've had my eye on.

Now if I can just convince my wife that I really need a CZ52 for my birthday that's coming up in three weeks.

December 26, 2005, 12:02 AM
my dad built me a rifle rack for Christmas. totally surprised me. I'll have to pick up a stud finder tomorrow, because with 5 rifles on it, this thing is *heavy*. he thoughtfully didn't drill any nail holes, since I live in such an old house that the studs probably aren't centered at 16". it'll get mounted tomorrow. now, of course, I need more milsurps, since the AK and PSL look out of place. :-P

LOL but if it is a pachyderm laxitive i aint volunteering to emplace it.

December 26, 2005, 01:04 AM
I received a Remington 700 adl in 30-06 from my parents for christmas. My dad found it for a really good deal at Wal-Mart for $279 clearance. Tommorow I will take some of my christmas money and equip it with some optics.

December 26, 2005, 01:18 AM
Glock 27 for me

My brother and I (we live very near each other) got a MEC shotshell reloader.
$50 gift card from Gander Mtn. from the in-laws.

December 26, 2005, 01:18 AM
Santa stiffed me on gun stuff. Thats what I get for being naughty I guess. Since I am the only gunnie in the family on the 20th I ordered myself a FN P35 from CDNN. Glad I did, I read in another thread that they sold out shortly after that. Happy new year every one!

That's a very good book.

December 26, 2005, 06:11 AM
Everything I got was gun or knife related. My wife is the greatest :D

I got my Rock River AR15 Lower NM receiver Friday because I had found one I was going to go buy Saturday :rolleyes:
My wife got me everything to replace the locking mainspring housing on my Springfield
I got "The Colt 45 Automatic" Shop Manual by Jerry Kuhnhausen

December 26, 2005, 08:10 AM
A Lump of Coal. :cuss:


December 26, 2005, 11:02 AM
Short list but some of the kinda' stuff I'd never get around to buying for myself: (#1) hands-free head set magnifying glasses for "funsmithing," etc., (#2) large (24" X 13") aluminum hard-case with double combination locks for my one .22rf Fiala 3-barrel set with shoulder stock that didn't have an original carrying case, and finally, (#3) small, soft, portable, 3-gun pistol stand for display or range use (instead of laying guns on a pistol rug). Love the big hard-case. Makes a nice home for the old Fiala but also handy for carrying a number of handguns, ammo, binocs, etc. to the range. BUT THE BEST PRESENT, was that our youngest daughter graduated a few days before Christmas as an Aerospace Engineer from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University here in Daytona. I hope EVERYONE'S Christmas was as good as ours!!! Have a Prosperous and Happy New Year! 45Broomhandle


December 26, 2005, 02:22 PM
Good wife.:D


December 26, 2005, 02:50 PM
You guys are something lucky, let me tell ya!

After years of silly stuff, I made out a Christmas list for my parents - just like when I was a kid.

I rec'd a box of 9mm FMJ, 45acp FMJ, and a box of .223 FMJ. The list plainly stated, "One box or MORE"

They opted for the former rather than the latter. That's my folks. :rolleyes:

I did get an authentic Steelers t-shirt bought in Pittsburgh, though. That makes up for a lot!!

December 26, 2005, 02:52 PM
I didn't recieve anything, however, my 7yr old son recieved a 22cal Cricket rifle, and a pair of binoculers!!!:what:
He has been good all year and Santa was generous!:D

Livin in Texas

December 26, 2005, 03:08 PM
I'm suprised no one has done this yet. Its time to brag about what gun or gun related items you got for Christmas. Me? My SO doesnt do the gun thing. So it was a complete suprise to get a M3 streamlight. Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.:)

December 26, 2005, 03:33 PM
Para P-16.

For myself? Nothing. However... dear old dad was treated to a Marlin 917VSF in .17HMR, Millet rings (for a Tasco EXP we had laying around NIB) four boxes of assorted brands of ammunition, (Winchester, Remington, Hornady and Federal) a shooting bench, hard case and a promised road trip for ground squirrels/prarie dogs.

Gotta get it mounted and boresighted this week, range tested soon and ready to zap varmints by mid January.

I bought my Dad the complete TV series "Combat" on DVD. I remembered it was his favorite show when I was a kid.

The better half gave me a Geiselle trigger for my Service Rifle and permission to order a 04 takedown carbine from Wild West Guns when they become available.

Oh....almost forgot, socks and underwear:rolleyes:

Santa brought me a new KD holster for my Seecamp...I love it, and a bottle of Hoppes #9.
My brother who visited for Chrismas brought his Glock 17 and about 600 rounds of ammo for us to use cause "He doesn't shoot much anymore".

Everyone have a safe new years :)
