2006 Christmas Thread


December 23, 2006, 08:14 PM
I guess it's close enough to go ahead and start a "what I got for xmas" thread.

Santa is bringing me a CZ452 Trainer. It was $100 cheaper than the Lux, and the walnut just wasn't worth the price. I'll post pics once the jolly guy in the suit delivers it. Mom asked for a nice flashlight so she's getting a Streamlight Scion with both chargers, and Dad is getting a range membership.

So, what are you receiving, and what are you giving?

I purchased a SureFire A2 Aviator for my father who is an elevator mechanic and will make good use of the high beam and LED lights.

I also purchased a SureFire E2E flashlight for my best friend serving in the Army at Ft. Carson, CO. He wont be home for Christmas so I mailed him the package and he loves it. I am proud of him.

Besides that, I am looking forward to returning to CA next friday, my Kimber will be coming back from the shop and I will be back at the range with my 45 ACP. Cant wait, oh how I miss it so.

I got myself a used 870P.

December 23, 2006, 10:36 PM
Well, I don't think anyone's getting me any gun related stuff this year, but you never know..

While the Visa was warmed up, I did just buy my FAL a Para folder (http://www.falconarms.com/xcartNEW/product.php?productid=16317&cat=0&page=1&featured) for Christmas though. Does that count? :)

December 23, 2006, 10:44 PM
Got my daughter a MEC 650 in 20ga. My son is getting a 600 Jr in .410. Mrs. Scout is getting a digital camera so that she can take pictures of us hunting and at the range for her scrapbooks.

I'm getting a gift card to go buy my own socks and underwear. :D :neener:

December 23, 2006, 11:49 PM
Magpul Precision stock, Streamlight TLR-2 and M-3, a few Swiss Army knives, and a rifle I have yet to see because it is still a suprise.

The Stoeger Cougar was my Christmas present to myself. Nothing else coming my way that I know of.

I got myself a case tumbler, 500 cast lead bullets, and 1000 small
pistol primers. :D

That should keep me busy for a while...

Lyman digital trigger pull gauge, .30 cal. bore snake, RedHead bench shooting bag.

I gave my son a bare-bones Remington Model 700 BDL (http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/centerfire_rifles/model_700/model_700_BDL.asp) in .30-06. I have never hunted with a scope and I felt that if he should want one, he should have the opportunity to select it rather than putting up with one he may not have wanted. My knowledge of the available optics is limited and with such a wonderful firearm, I didn't want to mess it up for him.

December 24, 2006, 08:38 AM
In order to save time during his busy season, Santa managed to pick the lock on my safe a few weeks back and secretly deposited a new Colt 6920 EBR therein. It supplements the slightly less evil Bushmaster (which lacks a telescoping stock, flash hider, and bayonet lug) already in residence.

But seriously, as the saying goes, it's better to give than to receive. So even more exciting to me this Christmas is the Savage Cub I bought for my 8 year old granddaughter. This diminutive .22 single shot makes an excellent first "real" gun. She knows it's coming, and can't wait to go with grandpa to the range sometime over Christmas break.

Note the rifle will stay in my safe, and she will only have access to it under strict supervision. She's a bright and very attentive little girl, and has already memorized the four rules. It'll be an honor to bring another shooter into the fold :D

December 24, 2006, 08:45 AM
I was a bad boy this year, Santa is going to pass on by. I bought a house and just moved in. I'm not getting any toys for christmas. Im broke as can be.

December 24, 2006, 08:57 AM
New holster from Alessi Leather from my mother-in-law. Very excited to open it up and actually see it!

Well, really I did not ask for one single thing :uhoh:, but old "HO-HO" is going
to deliver too me a really nice factory nickel 2" barrel Colt Lawman MK-III
(made between 1969-1978)*. I will be more definitive as to the extact year
once this "crown jewel" is in my hands. He says its about a 96 per center,
with the letter "L" prefix serial number. Santa didn't have too rob a bank
too get this one either; as the "price was right" at $225. Pics will be forth
coming shortly after Christmas Day~!;) :cool: :D

Actually, I cheated and peaked into Old Saint Nick's bag just to get
the serial number; and found out that this fine old Colt was made
in 1976 (birth year of my daughter), as per ProofHouse.com. The
S/N is L 37xxx.


December 24, 2006, 09:14 AM
Bought myself some wood grips for my Sig 226. Thinkng about buying a CZ52.

December 24, 2006, 09:25 AM
Santa (and VISA), brought me a new gun safe and he also brought my son a new SA XD 40......guess where he and I will be on Christmas day....:neener:

December 24, 2006, 09:36 AM
Dad had no idea, so sent a check. Got myself a pound of IMR 4895 and a new range bag, saving some for an 1851 Navy revolver, and a few other things.

December 24, 2006, 10:48 AM
No guns this holiday season for me. The wife got me a new compressor since I burned up my last one while porting and polishing cylinder heads.

After the holidays though I plan on purchasing a G29:D

December 24, 2006, 11:52 AM
Marvel .22 conversion for 1911s. XS tritium front sight for AR15

Finally got my gun club membership up and running after two months of trying.

Ammo, of course.

I really want a Remington 700 CDL in .308, but i got a longbow.

December 24, 2006, 12:06 PM
Put some peep sights and a Truglo front on a Marlin 336. That's Christmas, pretty much.

Been meaning to do it for years; haven't tried them out yet but I'm already happy.

December 25, 2006, 03:12 AM
Savage Enfield No 4 Mk1, CZ52, field grade M1 garand from CMP (on order), blackpowder pistol,misc. ammo and supplies for new guns, 4 large army surplus metal ammo boxes (3'x1.5'x4' or so), and a leather holster for my Redhawk .44 mag.

December 25, 2006, 09:36 AM
I got a chick flick DVD from my wife. :D I already have "enough" gun stuff.

Oh, and peanut M&M's! :crunch: :crunch:

December 25, 2006, 09:42 AM
I got the new Wilson Combat thin grips for my Colt Defender and the book (already had the other toys in the picture):

December 25, 2006, 09:53 AM
Tru-Glo TFO's, a double mag pouch and the surefire case that holds six batteries and a spare lamp assembly.

December 25, 2006, 10:09 AM
I just opened my Bushmaster AR-15 A2!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I named it after my best (somewhat anti) friend, and she is FLIPPING OUT!!!:D

Came with 2 30 round mags, one steel one plastic.

I dont know if all AR's are like this, but the trigger breaks like GLASS. And the upper seems heavier than other ones I've handled, so I'm guessing it has some sort of match barrel.

I've been playing with the action all day-- my fingers hurt...

Thanks Mom/Dad/Santa, and merry Christmas THR!!!!!!!:D :D :D :D

Turns out dad/santa was at the range and met a fellow hard up on his luck with a few choice pieces to offer :) :)

So when I tiptoed down the stairs this morning I found this clumsily prepared package:


Shoulda bought a gun sock, that stocking was a little too short.

Given christmas tradition, I had to shake it and guess what's inside.



I also got like nine pounds of pasta. Why? I don't know, my family is weird. But the pasta pretty much sealed the deal.... this year gets MY vote for best christmas ever.

Happy holidays all :rolleyes:

December 25, 2006, 10:28 AM
Sounds like Santa (and Visa/MC/Discover) was busy last night! No gun stuff for me right now,but I got permission to make use of the Dan Wesson Custom Shop if and when it's up and running soon. Schweet.

BamBam,that's awesome! Personally I'm holding out for the PS3's price to drop,but I've played my share of Xbox. I did manage to wrangle Final Fantasy XII as an early Christmas gift back in October.

December 25, 2006, 10:30 AM
I got 2 shirts and a shot of leg and all 3 were two sizes too big.:cuss:

December 25, 2006, 10:37 AM
My Army soldier son home on leave from Iraq (THAT was the first blessing for us this Christmas) gave me a brand new Browning High Power Practical 9mm:what: . I have always wanted a High Power, and he found it necessary to buy it for me this Christmas.:D

December 25, 2006, 10:44 AM
My patrol Partner set me up with a RRA 6 position stock and CQC Sling.

This year my Dad got me The Illustrated Directory of Guns by David Miller. My brother got me a set of Lee Precision 7.5 Schmidt Rubin reloading dies along with Lee case trimming gauges for both 7.5 Schmidt Rubin and 7.62 X 54R.

December 25, 2006, 12:12 PM
I was a bad boy and got my presents before christmas - but when your beautiful wife gives you a Gift Card to Cabela's, what can you do? I got a Springfield XD-9SC, a boatload of 9mm ammo, and an itchy trigger finger.

I gave my Dad my Taurus 605 as an early present along with holster, ammo, and some quality time at the range with it. He's never been an Anti, but he has also never owned his own handgun - we're having fun learning about our new guns together!

December 25, 2006, 12:58 PM
Santa has arrived and left the building.

I got 1,000 rounds of Thunderbolt .22LR. A CED7000 shot timer W/ accessories. A RCBS electronic scale and a S&W M66-5 W/ 3.25" barrel. It'll go great W/ my P&R'ed 2.5- 66.


December 25, 2006, 01:26 PM
What I thought was a pistol of some kind turned out to be a XM raido. She did come through with bulk lake city .308 for my G3.

Mr White
December 25, 2006, 03:37 PM
No guns for me today.
But I did get my boys a Heritage Rough Rider .22 pistol, and I'll be getting some reloading stuff for my B-day in January.

December 25, 2006, 06:04 PM
My father sent me a check for 250 bucks and said "Spend it on a gun."

So now I have to find one I like.

December 25, 2006, 06:29 PM
Had a great Christmas my wife got me a dvc camcorder. Been wanting to tape
our hunting trips (maybe the kids and furballs too:neener: ). Got myself a Ruger
.45LC SS 7 1/2" Blackhawk. :D Funny thing, I hadn't planned on getting it, but
was at Cabela's with a buddy and we seen it in the showcase...... all alone:( ,
whats a guy to do? Now its with a family that will give it a happy home!

Brought the wifea peach colored male Chihuahua, she about fell over:what: :D , she was so

Best to all for the holidays............ Mike

Crimson lazer grips. Evertime I pick it up the laser goes on and startles me

Take it outside in the dark and play with it. You'll scare everyone else as well.:evil: You'll be surprised how far you can see that thing.

December 25, 2006, 07:28 PM
My stepdad gave me the first firearm he's ever gotten me, a Savage Mark II .22 bolt action. It's very nicely balanced with the synthetic stock. I really love this thing. I've wanted a basic .22 bolt action for a while now, especially with some irons, and this fills the bill nicely. I was utterly shocked, as this was way out of left field.

I've just found out that the buttpad can be removed and the inside is hollow (instead of filled with the support structure, etc that they often are). It's not empty any more! Little sheath with band-aids, neosporin ointment, spare ammo, matches and dryer lint are now inside. Also a AAA mini-mag and some light cord. Handy dandy backpacking rifle now!

Merry Christmas all!

December 25, 2006, 08:35 PM
Pop got me a Remington 700 in .270 with a Leopold Rifleman scope.

Wooha! Can't wait for the range.

December 25, 2006, 10:31 PM
Santa left a nice little Remington 597 in my favorite color Olive Drab with a 3X9 VARIABLE Scope. Run Squirrel Run, whilst you have the chance!:evil:

Redneck with a 40
December 25, 2006, 10:34 PM
Here's my Marlin 22 magnum bolt action courtesy of Santa.:D I also got a bushnell 4X scope and 100 rounds of ammo to go with it.:D This should be a fun rifle to just go out and mess around with, who knows, might even cap some prarie dogs.:D

I've always wanted a 22 magnum, I think its a neat little cartridge, accurate and flat shooting too.

December 25, 2006, 11:07 PM
I got a Colt WWI repro and a side opening automatic knife made by a custom knife guy somewhere in Pensacola. Thats all the gun related stuff.

December 25, 2006, 11:13 PM
My Grand Daughter bought me a gift certificate for a range membership. Now I get to take her shooting..

I bought myself a RRA CAR 15....And Santa brought me an Eotech 512, he was nice and sent it a couple days early, via UPS.:evil:


December 25, 2006, 11:55 PM
Marlin 1894C (in .357 / .38), checkered walnut.

* Sniff *

She's so bootiful.

Santa also left some Federal red box .38 FMJ and .357 JSP so she won't go hungry.

Oh, and all of us (the kids and I) got a cute little box with the Founder's Edition Buck 112 folder. Well, you can't have too many knives.

Got 100 rounds of .223, a gift card to Academy for more, and bought myself a Soft Air pistol to practice drawing and cat annoyance techniques.

Gave a holster to a friend, and 2 BB guns to cousin's kids (I am going to be held responsible for broken windows, apparently):eek:

Off the gun topic, I got a nice big LCD moniter that I'm using right now. Quite nice, too.

Wesson Smith
December 26, 2006, 12:18 AM
I'm just a simple guy, in some respects. I wanted a S & W 642 for Christmas, and Santa brought me a gift certificate to take care of that. Out to visit my friendly dealer tomorrow morning. :)

December 26, 2006, 12:44 AM
A .45 SAA 7.5" revolver from USFA and a Randall Model 1, both with stag grips. Santa, where are you?
