A few movies, a brick of .22, a few books, some clothing.

Best part, honestly, was the people I was with. There is nothing, nothing, in the world worth more to me than knowing I've got people who will cover my back, no questions asked, no second thoughts. Hopefully the bruises will heal 'fore too long. Still a bit shaken up about the whole situation, but it's nice to know you don't have to go it alone. :)

So we barbecued. :D

December 27, 2005, 02:02 AM
Black rocks of some sort, I don't know what it is? :evil:

Bottle of Jose Cuervo -- not nearly as good as a new gun, but after the first half was gone I have to admitt I didn't care ! :what:

Gift cards
George Foreman grill (so I can cook stuff when I'm done shooting:neener: )

Me? Nothing. Now that I have a 10 month old, it's all about him. He got TONS of stuff. My relatives don't even say hello to me anymore. :scrutiny:

So I guess I'll be getting myself a belated X-mas M1a SOCOM gift later on. Hmm, what's that rectangular box under the tree? Must have missed that one....:evil:

December 27, 2005, 04:54 AM
5 men in a box, all named ben franklin.

December 27, 2005, 05:00 AM
The best gift possible. I got a job...at a gun shop/indoor range. :neener: :p

$50.00 gift card from Sportsman's Warehouse. Used it to buy a new Galco leather holster for my 1911. :D

December 27, 2005, 05:47 AM

This was a strange christmas. Son ill, wife across the country helping out, me working.

Santa didn't make it to my house.

But one of the cats did bring her papa a christmas present. She brought me a shrew. I don't even know how she caught the little thing. I just wish she had not missed the class in kitten school that dealt with killing your catch. So for a while I had a shrew running loose in the house.

But the story has a good ending. When I went to bed, all 3 cats had a section of the living room staked out. I knew that shrew wouldn't make it till morning. It didn't.

Santa has said he will make a special run to our place in early Jan before he heads off the Aruba for the rest of the winter.

Knew I was getting this one:


Didn't know I was getting a drill press for the shop I'm about to get to building. My wife said that she "hoped it would give me some incentive to get the shop built"...Man I have a great wife :)


December 27, 2005, 12:57 PM
No gun stuff unfortunately, but I got a T-shirt with this on the back!


December 27, 2005, 01:02 PM
A WWII era Webley MK. IV in .38 S&W. It's a sweet gun in really good condition. Right now it's at the gunsmiths being checked out, I'll post some pics once I get it back and go range-test it.:D

December 27, 2005, 01:05 PM
Santa brought me a STG58 parts kit (http://www.fseusa.com/product_info.php?cPath=103&products_id=342). WHOO!

It would be nice if it was a full FAL though. But I can't complain.

I also got a pair of the Peltor Tactical 6S muffs. Nice :D

December 27, 2005, 01:08 PM
Nothing, firearm or otherwise. Nothing to unwrap, no envelopes to open, no cards- nothing.

I had it all by my lonesome, quiet, read and finished my book. Cleaned house, ate, did some research, made notes, emailed some folks going thru some really bad times.

It was a good day!

Only items of interest was that I got a Colt Mustang Pocketlite from Missashot and I bought her some purple AR-15 stocks for the CAR-15 that she is building. These were Xmas gifts, but she got her stocks a couple of days before Xmas (plus she knew I'd ordered them), and the Mustang was found at a local store on Friday evening, and when I was going to buy it, Missashot bought it for me as an Xmas gift. I think we will shoot the Mustang at the indoor range tomorrow, and if the upper comes in today or tomorrow, we may have to test it out for a few rounds at the range, too.

Jimmy Buffett's A Salty Piece of Land and the DVD of Serenity.

I guess I'm getting older--I don't ask for much any more. What I truely need I usually buy. Besides, as my wife will tell you I'm just too hard to please. :evil:

December 27, 2005, 01:17 PM

You too eh? Mine's 2 and my mom still pushes me out of the way to get to my daughter when we pull into town. ;) This Christmas, we gave specific instructions to not get her any large toys. She needed clothes more than anything. Last year, we had the 4Runner packed to the gills with just enough space for the three of us. We still had to pack one of those receiver hitch platforms full as well. There's no way we could've made that trip in a car.

As for my Christmas, besides money for the kitchen remodel (all my wife and I wanted), I got a copy of Elmer Keith's Gun Notes vol 1, An illustrated encyclopedia of hunting guns, a Mouse Sander, a power inverter for the truck, and a Coleman Latern.


December 27, 2005, 02:11 PM
a $50 dollar gift card to a local shop, plus enough cash from various people to get a Mossberg 500A, and 125 rounds of 12 gauge.
Also, Santa got me two books, both of which I'm sure will be excellent.
Steel Canvas, the Art of American Arms (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/078581891X/qid=1135706752/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-9130246-7612841?n=507846&s=books&v=glance)
And a very nice hard cover book called "A Pictorial History of World War II" that I can't seem to find on Amazon.

December 27, 2005, 02:38 PM
Santa brought the usual stuff,shirt,sweatshirt,etc.
I however treated myself to a couple of
Winchester Ranger lever action rifles.
One in .357,and one in .44.
They will go well with my S&W 66 and 629.:D


December 27, 2005, 02:51 PM
$25 gift card (for trap ammo)

A Savage 10FP in .223, which I will not only shoot, but turn in to my own gratuitous gun porn, which I will sling all over the web. She's a shooter.

A large Drake blind bag and an insulated Filson ShadowGrass ball hat with a wool earflap that folds up inside.

And they found a Filson hat in XXL. Wooooo...


December 27, 2005, 06:28 PM
Gift cards that turned into large amounts of ammo at Dick's.

December 27, 2005, 06:50 PM
Bottle of Jose Cuervo -- not nearly as good as a new gun, but after the first half was gone I have to admitt I didn't care ! :what:

I received a bottle of Jamesons Irish whiskey myself, nothing gun related unfortunately though I don't go in much for Xmas and I tell everyone to save their money. Just used the $40 my grandma gave me though on a box of clays and a couple of brincks of 22lr though!

Christmas season hangovers are no fun from the box of Spanish sangria wine I bought myself as a present:( (long story)

December 27, 2005, 06:55 PM
A diamond starter kit!

I'm set in about 1,000,000 years!

December 27, 2005, 07:01 PM
i didn't get any gun related gifts this year, but i did get a new leatherman (which is being mailed home since i couldn't take it on the plane), and some money which will go towards my next gun purchase.

December 27, 2005, 07:03 PM
I got my father in laws Winchester model 52. SWEET!

December 27, 2005, 07:12 PM
I got some new metric FAL magazines. Works for me. :D

December 27, 2005, 08:26 PM
A new gun cleaning case, with one drawer and racks you can put on to hold a rifle, a book, Enemies Foreign and Domestic and bunch of other stuff not gun related.

December 27, 2005, 08:34 PM

The best gifts I got this year were from my 5 1/2 year old twin grandsons. They got to shop the Santa Shop at kindergarten and they bought these with their own money, and wrapped them themselves.


Yes boys, grandpa loves them, 'scuse me, I have something in my eye. :)

December 27, 2005, 10:58 PM
I got to spend a Italian Christmas dinner with my wifes family a long way away from here.:D While scrounging aroung in the basement amonst old books I found my father in laws (whom I never had the chance to meet) Combat Infantry Badge from WW2. I don't think any of the other folks realized what it was. So I took it home with the families blessings.:)

December 28, 2005, 12:18 AM
I did not recieve any gun related gifts. I did ask for a Ruger Blackhawk, but that idea was soundly rejected by multiable family members. Not a very pro-gun family. But presants are not what christmas is about anyway. At least I did not get anymore ugly ties.

December 28, 2005, 01:14 AM
CZ 75 Compact 9mm (first gun; my choice, hope it's a good one), gun cleaning kit, mp3 player, and a new 3 bedroom house (1st time home owner). It's been a good christmas. :D

Spec ops Grunt
December 28, 2005, 01:17 AM
Some video games, clothes, and a Winchester 1300 and 250 shells.

December 28, 2005, 10:18 AM
A new Sharp Wizard organizer to replace the ancient one I've been using for far too long, clothes, a new Swiss Armt knife so I can stop abusing Dad's old one, and lots of cooking gear (cooking being my other hobby). Oh yeah, and a new leather briefcase/satchel with this nice organizer pocket on the outside. Velcro closure, and it just so happens that my Smith 649 fits perfectly inside...:D

December 28, 2005, 10:59 AM
No guns but:


December 28, 2005, 11:24 AM
A '44 M1-Garand...with zero TE and MW....:D

December 28, 2005, 12:31 PM
A couple of nice jackets, ice skates, a rifle (ok, I had to buy this one on my own).
Plenty of time with my family and dogs.
All in all, a good holiday.

December 28, 2005, 12:49 PM
A shirt and a piece of a** and they were both too big...

December 28, 2005, 12:59 PM
Santa brought the two granddaughters lots of loot! All he brought me was a big, fat, VISA bill!:mad:
No, wait, I got a DVD from AGI for my FAL.:)


December 28, 2005, 01:14 PM
My dad and I finally applied to CMP for an M1 for me and a 1903 Springfield for him.

That's it gun related.

I got real lucky this year. The wife let me pick out my first Christmas gift, which ended up being a nice set of Crimson Trace grips for my 642. They are on my pistol now. Sweet.

The second gift she gave me is even better. She got with my family and friends and they all chiped in to get me a Bose surround sound system for my TV. Oh man, the neighbors are gonna be pissed. :D
