What did you get for Christmas (gun related) [threads merged]


December 23, 2007, 10:13 PM
My new sister inlaw got me a box of Winchester self defence .38 ammo.
I am starting to like her more.:scrutiny:

My Mother inlaw got me a huge Cabelas gun cleaning kit.

So far no socks or sweaters.

Nothing gun related this year. I'm not too worried about it though, I think this country doesn't even allow guns anyway.

December 23, 2007, 10:22 PM
self bought a 22 revolver (see other posts)
Also some new reloading equipment. (got in on that great get loaded from hornady)

last year got $25 certificate for local indoor range. (haven't used yet)

will probably get alot more.

December 23, 2007, 10:23 PM
I will get, since I bought it for my wife to give me, a HK P30.

December 23, 2007, 10:23 PM
I don't see any EOtech shaped boxes under the tree :( ...I think Santa may have shafted me.

December 23, 2007, 10:23 PM
Which time zone are you in?
Not quit Christmas in Texas yet.:)

December 23, 2007, 10:23 PM
I haven't got anything yet.:mad:.. not even the socks or underwear....but hoping for something related to guns lol lol :D i got my wife brand new grips for her gun, besides the earrings, well you know. Keep the wife happy :D

December 23, 2007, 10:24 PM
Well, I swore I'd never buy the "billboard" Colt 1991A1 series 80, but it really shoots great! It's a keeper.
I was considering a Springfield G.I., but I am really glad I got a Colt instead.

It's my Christmas present to myself this year. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!


December 23, 2007, 10:24 PM
So far.....well it was actually for my B-Day (Dec 20th)...I got the Peltor Low Profile Electronic Ears.......WOW those things are great.

December 23, 2007, 10:25 PM
I dunno, ask me again in 36 hours.

December 23, 2007, 10:27 PM
Well this is kinda gun related, because its going to be part of my EDC (which includes a GLOCK 30)... Anyway, my loving wife bought me a surefire E1L outdoorsman :) Its still in the mail though, so i wont get it until after Christmas :( I cant wait!

December 23, 2007, 10:37 PM
My GF got me a norinco M14 for christmas, one for me and one for herself. Its one of the best christmas presents I have ever gotten.

In retaliation I was going to buy her a 10/22 but she doesn't have her licence yet and even though her M14 is in my name, I thought one rifle was enough for her considering she can't even really use it yet without me.
I bought her a digital camera instead, something she really needs, the model I really wanted is now hers :D

I bought myself an SKS this year for christmas, another norinco.

Well nothing yet, but $$$ to help fund the DPMS LR-308B, Burris Fulfield II 4.5x-14x42, and ~650 rds of .308 I just bought.:)

I can't wait to get it to the range.:D

December 23, 2007, 10:58 PM
Doesn't look like there is anything gun related for me this year. An M4gery is all i asked for. I guess I asked for too much :rolleyes:. I didn't see it that way considering my other choices.

December 23, 2007, 11:04 PM
Found out I'm getting a Giraud power trimmer.

December 24, 2007, 12:18 AM
Not really "Christmas related", as I just happened to order in Dec, and not really a "present", since I got it for myself, but what the heck, circumstances say its close enough. The beginnings of my furture reloading operation:

December 24, 2007, 01:48 AM
Well so far...

A Springfield Armory TRP 1911
Bushnell Trophy 6x18x40 scope
Weaver see-through rings
Butler Creek folding stock for a 10/22
2 Chip McCormick 1911 10rd power mags for above said pistol
Extended mag release for 1911
Guns and Ammo renewal
Handgunner magazine

Those were the early gifts, now I hope to see under the tree a nice new:

Ruger 10/22 Stainless

and if I have been a really good boy a 500 Mossberg 12 Guage, but the birthday is also in a few days so we will see :p

all and all I would say it's been good so far!

December 24, 2007, 01:57 AM
case tumbler, 1895 nagant, cz52, cz82, lots of ammo, bsa 3x9x50 scope, and loadmaster

December 24, 2007, 02:24 AM
I found a used, unfired Browning High Power 9mm with the case, two mags and the manual. Merry Christmas to me! ;)

December 24, 2007, 02:26 AM
I can't resist a cheap deal, so I've just bought myself a new Norinco JW-25a .22LR "Mauser trainer" from Lever Arms in Vancouver for a whole C$99 :)


December 24, 2007, 02:40 AM
Apparently I was very good this year. Santa brought me two new guns.

A custom build 98 mauser in 300 win mag. The rifle is about 20 years old in like new unfired condition. AAA walnut stock with fine checkering, deep blue barrel and fine checker metal butt plate. It's definately a high $$$$ rifle.

I also got a Smith and Wesson M&P 9mm compact.

December 24, 2007, 02:45 AM
Guys, it's not even Christmas eve yet. That can only mean one thing: you've been naughty boys and peeked at your presents. Better do something REALLY nice between today and tomorrow or Santa will take it all back.

December 24, 2007, 08:02 AM
ny32182 Congratulations, you are going to have a lot of quality time with your new hobby. And, that pile is small compared to what it is going to look like in a year or two.

I asked for some more magazines for my AR (it likes to read to pass the time when I am not shooting it), an IWB holster for my 1991A1, a rifled slug barrel for my 870, a new hunting vest. Don't know what Santa is going to leave me yet.

I also talked myself out of self gifting a Sig Revolution Compact/Nitron but that issue isn't dead and buried yet.

December 24, 2007, 08:34 AM
Well, lets say an "early surprise"~! :uhoh: :D

This beautiful 4" factory nickel Smith & Wesson model 19-3, UNFIRED in
its original factory box with all doc's. Pinned barrel, and recessed chambers
with a 7K26xxx S/N makes this a 1975 model; as per SCSW. :cool: ;)

December 24, 2007, 08:51 AM
It's been a good gun related Christmas so far....1000 rounds of 9mm(for IDPA)and my Father gave me his Ruger security six that I've coveted for years.I gues I should've made that a 1000 rounds of 38/357....plus it's not even Christmas yet.

December 24, 2007, 08:53 AM
Waiting for my Kel Tec PF-9 to hopefully arrive today. I have had good luck with Kel Tec products and know how to fix them if luck turns bad.

December 24, 2007, 09:06 AM
I got a Surefire and a Lasermax guide rod sight. Woo Hoo!

December 24, 2007, 09:08 AM
gun related: my first reloading system. Dillon 550b.

December 24, 2007, 10:25 AM
remington 870 HD from my loving wife! a couple of boxes of .12 ga Tac 8 buckshot, and remington slugs from my buddy, and a new can of Breakfree CLP from myself!

also, i overheard the inlaws asking my wife what caliber deer rifle i use, so maybe there will be a couple boxes of core locks under the tree.

oh yeah, my parents got me a gift card to my favorite local gun store so, i will stock up on some more ammo and cleaning stuff.

December 24, 2007, 01:36 PM
S&W 625JM. As soon as I've cooled off adequately, Santa will let me have it. Only 20 days to my birthday. A good time to accessorize.

December 24, 2007, 01:45 PM
Well, I ordered a correct grade H&R M1 from CMP the other day, but for Christmas I'd be shocked to get anything gun related...but ya never know. A few years ago I got an NRA T-shirt and some stuff from my wish list at MidwayUSA.


My birthday's the 26th...maybe that will be my lucky day!


December 24, 2007, 01:48 PM

I haven't gotten anything yet, but I'm giving my friends' stepson a Rossi combo in .22lr and .410.

December 24, 2007, 07:13 PM
A promissary note from my minister of finance for a gun @ tax-time. I'll take what I can get!

December 24, 2007, 07:27 PM
I got a DPMS Panther 18" LR308.

My wife loves me very much:neener:

December 24, 2007, 07:40 PM

December 24, 2007, 07:42 PM
I got an award at work this year that provided some extra Christmas cash. Bought my first S&W Model 10, 4" pencil barrel. Got out to the range with it last Thursday for an extra early Christmas present.

December 24, 2007, 07:53 PM
I finally paid off the layaway on my FNP-9 SS. I have been dry firing all afternoon. I can't wait to shoot this thing!

December 24, 2007, 08:23 PM
Nothing for me, but someone I love will be surprised soon. Well, I guess I could say, since the wife decided she didn't like the Mini-14 I got for her 6 months ago, and gave it to me, that was my early Christmas present.

December 24, 2007, 10:50 PM
M1 Garand from CMP. The check has cleared, but the brown Santa truck didn't bring it yet...maybe by new years.

December 24, 2007, 11:37 PM
I did ok on the gun front.

Mom gave me the Lee Classic Turret Press Kit from Cabela's (Press, Pro Powder Measure, Scale, Auto Prime, Rifle Charging Die, etc.) Sister-in-law gave me a value-pack of Federal 8 shot shells. A couple of hundred bucks in cash from various that will no doubt go towards gun stuff. Not a bad haul. :)

December 24, 2007, 11:39 PM
Ladies and Gentlemen, I hold in my hands a vintage 1961 printing of "Sixguns" by Keith!

it smells wonderful; and it's going right in the safe.

December 24, 2007, 11:46 PM
My wife told me to stop putting it off and literally made me buy the Hornady LNL press I've been drooling over, last year she bought me XD 45 ACP.

She's one of the only ladies I know that would get excited about getting the 1000 free bullets.

December 24, 2007, 11:52 PM
Got a Dillon XL 650 and dies for .223,.308,.454 casull,.500 S&W, .480 ruger, and 10mm auto.....and my wife got new furniture for the living room

December 25, 2007, 12:12 AM

Merry Christmas all!!

I prefer not to get gun related gifts for Christmas. Its been that way since I got a couple boxes of .45LC, for my kimber, and glock 19 mags for my 17. But I got socks that I'll wear to the range at some point. Dont get me wrong, I like socks, I even ask for them. The less money that's spent on me is more they save or spend on the kids.

Besides, I dont ask for gun stuff, gun stuff is expensive, and if its not, I already have it, and if I dont, they may get the wrong thing. Besides, if the kids in the families have a good Christmas, well that's good enough for me.

Well I've always been lucky in keeping as good friends those I've dealt with fairly in the past.
The guy I got my S&W Mod 59 brought me a huge Basket of fruit, and I mean huge, a finely woven bushel basket of apples oranges and Bannanas, and 100 rounds of Remington 9mm 115 gr Hollowpoints to feed the beast.
The guy I bought my Savage 23B in 25/20 from remembered my mentioing that it would make a great Turkey and Groundhog gun so he bought me a new Real Tree Mossy Oak winter hunting coat and matching gloves and hat.
Might be a while before I'm up to using them but I'd been thinking about getting some good commercial camo. His brother said they'd been planning to bring me a couple of boxes of 25/20 but couldn't find any locally, which is the only reason he'd parted with the gun to begin with.
I'll be getting dies and cases soon and probably a mould, I figure this sort of old dog is best fed with homegrown anyways.

Best gift of all was having five generations of the family under one roof for the holidays. With the next crop of younguns we may form our own state.

December 25, 2007, 01:43 AM
I'm getting a Fulton Armory .308 stripped lower... in Jan :)

December 25, 2007, 01:48 AM
The wife got me a Streamlight TLR-1 and a couple CMI M14 twenty round mags. Thats all I'm sure of so far because she asked what to get me and she isn't very gun savvy. She means well though. Got a few gift cards to Academy from the in-laws so I'll get some ammo.

December 25, 2007, 02:27 AM
GF got me a T/C Pro Hunter and Omega Scope to go with it. Yay!!

Of course this was for Hanukah

December 25, 2007, 03:05 AM
Picked up a Tanfoglio Witness at a gun show a few months ago. Wife got me a custom made holster for it for Christmas and ordered a 10mm conversion kit that will come in the next few weeks.
Gonna have one gun that will hold 10+1 .45s or 15+1 10mms, whichever I choose for that day. Talk about the best of both worlds!
Also, got a great surprise in mail. A spring that will make a gun that has been out of commission for months work again. Already installed it.
Hope the holster and Tanfoglio show up in the post...


December 25, 2007, 08:16 AM
I received the traditional gifts of beef jerky and .45 ACP from my inlaws, with some .223 and mixed nuts also.

And I'm being flat-fact serious when I refer to the above as 'traditional gifts'; this year marked nine years in a row that I've been so blessed.

Merry Christmas!

December 25, 2007, 08:21 AM
H&R Ultra Handirifle 223 Bull Barrel
223 Reloading dies
Caldwell ES85 Electronic Hearing Protection

All of the above from my lovely wife.

December 25, 2007, 08:37 AM
Santa put an S&W j-frame wood grip in my stocking.

And FedEx delivered the latest Graf order with three new powders in it, along
with another 5000 primers and twelve MTM ammo boxes.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

My wife gave me an airsoft Glock 19 to compliment my carry G19.

I love her.


December 25, 2007, 09:14 AM
Money for my annual after Christmas pawn and gunshop tour. I also bought my oldest son a Highpoint 9mm Carbine for him to plink with, a couple of boxes of 9MM rounds, as well as a 550 cheap .22 bulk pack for each of the boys, to use.

December 25, 2007, 09:24 AM
The only thing gun related for Christmas this year is... I'm buying myself a Firestorm .22 later this week. Should be fun.

December 25, 2007, 09:46 AM
Hmmm. A Colt Commander, a Glock 21-SF, a Ruger Mark II, a beautiful, heavy hunting turtle neck. I've had several neck surgeries, and while I love the cold but it kills me. I also got 3 hunting DVDs. I know...that's kind of cheating, because they are archery.

December 25, 2007, 10:15 AM
Just got a certificate from my wife for one of these:


That's the Sharpshooter Supply Light Varmint Tactical, ordered in Triple Brown, with adj. cheekpiece and hook. It's going on my new Savage 12LV in .243. She asked me in November what I needed for shooting, but I didn't think she would ever order one. Won't arrive until mid-January as they are about 6 weeks for delivery.

Also got one of the Firestorm Clamp Tables, although it's for my woodworking it will also work pretty well for holding rifles when I'm working on them. Hope you all had a merry Christmas.

December 25, 2007, 10:18 AM
Mike, you'll love the little Firestorm, I got one of the long barrelled models a couple of months ago for a plinker and it's a very nice shooter.

December 25, 2007, 10:20 AM
5 pmags 2 ak mags and 1 wilson combat mag for my .45

More appropriately, it was my cousin who gave me a Beretta 92F to go along with my Beretta 87 Cheetah. How nice was that?!

December 25, 2007, 10:59 AM
A NIB Saiga-12 19" and a 90% satin nickel CZ75B 9mm.

Of course, I bought both of them for my family to wrap for me. But they did a FINE job with the wrapping. :)

December 25, 2007, 11:03 AM
All of my Christmas gun stuff was AK related :evil:

December 25, 2007, 11:04 AM
Didn't get anything gun-related yet, in fact my grandparents are giving me money that's "not to be spent on guns". But yesterday, christmas eve, me and my dad took my M44 and CZ52 to a sinkhole and shot all kinds of stuff. It was a sad day for logs and bricks, but my best christmas eve ever.

December 25, 2007, 11:11 AM

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. None of that Happy Holidays crap from me! I had a pretty good Christmas:

Set of RCBS .32 Win SPl dies.
Set of RCBS 9mm dies.
9mm shell holder
Box of CCI 200 Large Rifle primers
Box of CCI 400 Small Rifle primers
"The War" by Ken Burns (book)
Also, as a belated Christmas/BDay present, Mrs White is going to buy me the parts I need to put together my 1911.

The kids each got an M-16 airsoft gun and each got a brick of .22 ammo in their stockings. (hehe - easy way for dad to kill 2 birds with one stone and replenish dwindling supply of .22 ammo and get kids stocking stuffers.)

December 25, 2007, 12:12 PM
Range membership...this range is unlimited shooting as a member, free, and an hour and a half limit if it is a busy day. Plus 10% off regular priced ammo and some other perks.

My sister got my a gift card to the same range/gun store. That plus some cash I got will get me a decent storage/security cabinet to get all my stuff organized. Maybe a .22 rifle off the used rack as well.

December 25, 2007, 12:22 PM
An Equinox P220 carry for me, and a Barrett M82A1 for hubby! (he's actually getting it after the New Year, but it still counts!):neener:

December 25, 2007, 12:25 PM
I didn't get anything gun related... but i got Doc2005 a 1911 book for being nice enough to take me shooting :P

Taurus 605 SS
Ammo from Bass Pro (rifle & revolver)

December 25, 2007, 12:25 PM
I actually got zero gun related gifts this year, but the wife DID buy me a nice set of Taylormade irons, so that more than covers it.

December 25, 2007, 12:30 PM
Gun related? A pair of dark mirror shooting glasses. I'll use those for busting clays on a sunny day. Hmm, couple sweatshirts also, probably wear one of those shooting on a cold day. Oh and "Shooter" on DVD if that counts.

December 25, 2007, 12:42 PM
I got a Bushnell Laser Rangefinder from my girlfriend and I bought myself John Ross's "Unintended Consequences."

December 25, 2007, 12:42 PM
As my wife frowns upon gun-related Christmas gifts, I got myself a SIG P6 W. German police trade-in. :neener:

December 25, 2007, 12:42 PM
Well I woke up this morning and what should apear but a American Arms 180 and a brick of 22 lr. I just love that wife of mine. She got together with a friend of mine and bought me the coolest 22lr I could have asked for. She brought it out this morning in a briefcase and laid it on my lap saying "Merry Chistmas Dear".

It is so cool the way it broke down into four pieces and fit in the case. Now I have to get to the range and shoot this puppy.


December 25, 2007, 01:15 PM

December 25, 2007, 01:23 PM
My parents got me a Taurus 4 inch 44 mag for the farm. My lovely wife put an SA XD-9 in layaway for me to retrieve tomorrow. Great Christmas this year.

December 25, 2007, 01:23 PM
"Self-bought" big present this year was the attached unissued Finn 1944 dated VKT M39. Basically a brand new 63 year old rifle :D

Accessories include a repro bayonet (original ones being scarce as hen's teeth and priced to match), original leather sling, the book "Finland at War" and a copy of "The Winter War" on DVD.

Got a couple other books and movies as well... for my winter vacation reading and viewing pleasure!

December 25, 2007, 01:24 PM
Nil,nothing,O,but I did get some great hand cream to deal with my very badly chapped hands which always suffer when shooting in the cold.
What's wrong with happy holidays Mr White,is the THR a Christian only site,

Sorry I did get a book on Anzio (WW2) and one on The Great British Naval Battles,Brittania rules the waves and all that..

Almost forgot about a double rifle/shotgun case - nothing inside of it this year but my wife knows what I have my eye on.

A ruger single six and 20.00 gc for the range.

They're not here yet but:

Mossberg 500 12, Field Grade; w/28" vent rib barrel

Used Mossberg 500 12, Appears to be a Pre-68 model with 30" plain barrel and jeweled bolt. This ones needs some work but I'd really like to restore it to new condition.

December 25, 2007, 03:31 PM
No doubt, Mr. White

What are we reading a Christmas thread for if we have the intention of feigning offense?

Merry Christmas to you, Mr. White.

My girlfriend (oops, now she's a fiance) has ordered me the Lee Anniversary kit so I can learn to reload.

My dad got me a... stick for hunting (to rest the gun for shooting- someone who knows more than I will be able to tell you what it's really called)

My parents bought me a Makarov (East German)

And my Dad got me a Marlin 1895SS 45-70. I can't wait to try that one out.

Also my girlfriend got me the book Beginning Reloading from the NRA.

wife got me a 1847 Walker (Uberti) a book on Black Powder and a new lead dipper. sis in law got me books on 'small arms' and got 1000 CCI large pistol primers from kids. Grand daughter got me a set of spurs(actually my daughter did, grand baby is only 4). Other various sportsman/outdoor related stuff. They all faired well. They always do!. But one of the best things was taking my nephew (18) to the gun range today(christmas day). He had never fired a gun. He really loved it. Took an old 12 gauge pump and a lever 30/30 for him to try out. It was a great day for all in our family and I do hope all had and have a safe and happy holiday. Bob

December 25, 2007, 06:37 PM

PF-9 from my bride of 18 years.

December 25, 2007, 08:00 PM
Well My mom never got me 22 plinking ammo. She said "She didn't want my kid to kill himself with one of my guns accidentally, and have it be the ammo she purchased".
Yeah....cause I leave loaded guns laying around. And my kid is gonna find a way to get into my safe, load the gun, and somehow shoot himself with a 22 long rifle? He's 4! The rifle's taller than him!

BUT....I was given a handgun hard case (useless since the only handgun I own has it's own case) BUT it was a thoughtful gift from the brother in law. AND....It may be an excuse to buy 4 more handguns! hahaha

December 25, 2007, 08:01 PM

December 25, 2007, 11:01 PM
My Christmas has been fairly gun-friendly this year. I had the pleasure of visiting with Tuner and family which is always a treat, especially so at Christmas. I was pleased to make a new friend this time too. The TurboCoffee and conversation were refreshing and stimulating, a great Christmas present.

While there I retrieved what has not-so-affectionately become known as the “Rehab Nork.” It was Bubba’d before I got it and took a bit of Tuner-style persuasion to become reliable. Fortunately it became accurate too, and all with a stock Nork (but not original) barrel. It was like getting a new pistol to have it back, a great Christmas present.

While there Tuner also adhered (with JB Weld) new grip bushings to a Kimber, which allowed me to remove the grips it had when I bought it and install the ones I prefer. It finally feels like shooting my pistol, and not someone else’s, a great Christmas present.

A friend gave a Wally-world gift card. It’ll go for .22LR, brake cleaner, and targets. Might even get a case of clays to pop with the .22, a great Christmas present.

Another friend gave a proven reliable 8 round 1911 magazine. A special friend indeed, and a great Christmas present.

Another friend gave a box of Remington 9mm 124g ammo, also a great Christmas present.

I’ve been very fortunate this year to have been blessed and enjoyed family and friends! Merry Christmas to All!

My larger xmas list was posted earlier but the one I was waiting for was under the tree for me!

Got me another Ruger 10/22 to build out under the tree all stainless n purdy, now to go and put on all the accessories that I prepurchased for it :D

December 26, 2007, 01:24 AM
I am so pleased and blessed. I had a wonderful time with my family this Christmas. Yesterday (X-mas eve) I went to visit my grandparents and rec'd my all-time favorite gift. My grandfather, who is now 75 yrs old, handcrafted me a gun cabinet made of cherry wood. It is gorgeous. My long guns don't need to go in the closet any more!

December 26, 2007, 01:36 AM

My first Browning Rimfire.


December 26, 2007, 03:00 AM
What was I given?
A Filson Leather Belt (http://www.filson.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2092378) - 1-1/2" double-width bridle leather. It's like wearing a hula hoop around my waist. I now know what it's all about.

What did I buy, that I may or may not yet have let my fiancee in on?
-Speed Strips
-Pocket Holster
-Elk Leather
(the last two are destined to be merged into a holster)

December 26, 2007, 01:37 PM
I got a years subscription to Guns & Ammo magazine and a box of ammo.

December 26, 2007, 01:47 PM

A 1945 Remington Rand with a Colt slide from my wife. She thought my Garand and my Carbine needed a companion. :D

Unbeknownst to me, my younger brother has been searching for the right deal for three years.

December 26, 2007, 03:21 PM
The wife got me a Konus 80 spotting scope, a Garrity handheld LED light, a Goldenrod and the "Armed America" coffee table book. WooHoo!

My wife gave me a $50 gift card to our semi-local Caswell's Shooting Range :)

December 26, 2007, 06:36 PM
This year my wife gave me 192 rnds of Greek .30-06 ammo. :cool:

She also, (along with several of my family), gave me a service grade M1 Garand! :D :what: :D

I haven't stopped grinning yet!


December 26, 2007, 07:26 PM
The Ruger 10/22 Race Rifle. :)

December 26, 2007, 07:45 PM
.380 version. Got it from my brother. Really nice shape.

December 26, 2007, 08:01 PM
Well it was a stainless steel Christmas here in the Plinker household. :D

I got an early Christmas present in the form of permission from Mrs. Plinker to buy a nice find at the local gun show.


But then, my mother-in-law decided it was too much work to go shopping (a blessing in disguise!) and just handed me a check. Perusing the offerings at the local gunshop the very next day yielded this little bit of Teutonic temptation.


Both of these are as close as I will probably ever get to a "BBQ" gun, but they are certainly good enough for those rare occasions when I am strapped into a suit of some sort. They are classy enough for dispatching bad guys in the best of style. :evil:

Both are "older", as in not new, and both in exceptionally good condition. The Colt was built in 1986, an the Sig, while I do not have a build date yet, was made in West Germany, so that puts it in the late 80s at the latest.

December 26, 2007, 08:37 PM
Gander Mt. gift cards!

December 26, 2007, 08:42 PM
I'm going to get myself a Glock 22...after X-mas.

December 26, 2007, 08:57 PM
Well, tourist season has passed, so the restaurant I work at is pretty empty, and the wife's hours at the hospital have been cut down to one day a week, so I couldn't afford to spend much of anything on myself.

But my three year old son had an awesome Christmas! He made out like a bandit! Besides, aren't Christmas presents more for the kids, anyway?

To keep it gun related, I did get a pair of 5.11 cargos. Tacticool black. (Where am I gonna wear these things?)

December 26, 2007, 08:57 PM
I was going to say not a thing, but then I remembered my son's girlfriend gave me a goft card for Dick's Sporting Goods, and my mom gave me a check for $250. So I am pretty certain both of those gifts will wind up being gun 'related'.;)

All the best,
Glenn B

Christmas was very, very merry for me this year.:)


I'm not sure how that old flashlight made it into the picture.:confused:

Anyone get any new firearms for Christmas? I got a lump of coal shaped like a P99.

December 27, 2007, 10:03 AM
I traded for a Python and have just bought myself a Taurus 651 snub

December 27, 2007, 10:10 AM

So I said "screw that" and bought myself a Mossberg 590A 12 ga pump :evil:. Should be here by new years! I'm sure that pisses my wife off to no end, so I'll probably get the same thing from Santa next year ;).

For Christmas, my father got a Remington SPR 220 12 ga SxS and my sister got a S&W 681-3 357 Mag.

December 27, 2007, 10:11 AM
I like to give and receive guns as Christmas gifts, but some people just think I am strange. I bught my wife a Kimber stainless compact for Christmas this year and an Uzi carbine last year a Sig P226 the year before and a Taurus PT99 the year before that. Some of my friends think it is strange. My sister thought is was strange, but is used to it now.

My wife bought me a Sig GSR last year. My dad has given me some of his guns over the years. Those gifts mean a lot to me.

Do you have friends and family that don't understand?

December 27, 2007, 10:15 AM
I got a Beretta 92fs Inox for Christmas from myself and I bought a Beretta 8045f the day after.

I also bought my wife a Kimber stainless compact that she has been wanting.

Intrepid Dad
December 27, 2007, 10:24 AM
I bought a Bushmaster AR-15 M4A3 for myself. I was pretty sure my wife wasn't going to buy one for me.

On a lighter note, I did get some camo pajamas, so if I have to bug out in the middle of the night I'm good. :)

December 27, 2007, 10:30 AM
No new guns on Christmas for me. My wife and I agreed that I could get a certain gun, but I am holding off until I have the money from available cash flow funds. Christmas was just fine.

December 27, 2007, 10:30 AM
I also enjoy it. I don't have a large budget, but the last two gifts to my brother were an SKS and a Mosin Nagant and ammo for each. He LOVED these gifts and I would rather spend the money on a piece of functioning historic weaponry than the trinkets you pick up at Walmart.

I also obviously like getting anything gun related and useful (ammo, cleaning agents, magazines, whatever), but most people drop the ball on this and still end up getting me nongun stuff.

December 27, 2007, 10:34 AM
I got two handguns, some smallbore rifle targets, a cleaning kit, and a scope lens cleaner for xmas. My family and friends know what its all about, haha. Likewise, I bought my friend a mosin nagant and my woman a galco CCW purse. I think those were all the gun-related gifts this year involving me giving or receiving.

This goes back to the whole thing of giving functional gifts that will be around FOREVER if taken care of and can be used for a lot of activities.

December 27, 2007, 10:35 AM
My wife and I have given each other firearms for Valentine's Day. :evil:

December 27, 2007, 10:35 AM
After returning home from a visit to Cabela's in Reno (170 miles from home) back in early November, I mentioned to my wife that I'd seen a 1950-production Marlin in .35 Remington that interested me.

That very rifle was under the tree on Christmas morning, along with the correct loading dies.

This is just the latest in a LONG string of wonderful guns from her, over the last forty years. Others included a Shiloh Sharps, my Ruger #1 in .416 Rigby, a 6" Combat Magnum, a grade three Browning .22 autoloader, and MANY others.

Fortunate, that's me.

December 27, 2007, 11:07 AM
For Christmas I gave my two daughters Spring Field XD9’s since they carry and shot with me I wanted to give them some thing dependable.

December 27, 2007, 11:32 AM

December 27, 2007, 11:43 AM
I didn't get any guns for Christmas..B/f didnt want to take that big of chance yet. But then I have told him when he buys me a gun it is considered a wedding proposal.. i dont want a shiny ring i want a shiny revolver instead. And if I dont shoot him then the answer is yes. However my kids got very lucky..son got a M1 garand (springfield) and my girl got glenfield 22 thats semi automatic.. and all i got was new hunting camo and some socks... be glad when kids are working and can afford to treat me like i treat them!!!!

December 27, 2007, 12:01 PM
I'll be getting a .30-40 Krag carbine when my family comes back from the beach vacation I didn't get to go on.

A buddy told my wife about it (the last category in my 20thC US military rifle collection) and she got it for me.

I'll still act tickled when I get it (cause I will be:D)

December 27, 2007, 12:06 PM
I got some VZ grips, a Saiga 12 and permission to buy another handgun.

I was a good boy.

December 27, 2007, 12:08 PM
I got a pistol/rifle bench rest, a box of .45 Colt ammo, and there's another mystery gift on its way that Amazon boogered the shipping on.

I also got a Kershaw Ken Onion folding knife. It was a good Christmas.

Six O'clock Tactical
December 27, 2007, 12:15 PM
for my plinking rifles. Not so much for me but so my nephew wont see my guns, just in case he ever gets into the bedroom, and then into my closet, and then into my locker... all with locked doors... whatever. (I think if he managed all that without someone noticing, a zipper isnt going to stop him)

December 27, 2007, 01:08 PM
My first shotgun. A mossberg persuader 12g.

December 27, 2007, 01:57 PM
knowing I wouldn't get anything gun related from my wife, I put a new m2 on layaway at cabelas and asked for gift cards.
I also got a new air compressor to start spraying guns with.

December 27, 2007, 02:18 PM
My wife acquired (I don't know how...) some Super Comp Match .50 BMG ammo (for my competitions). She then proceeded to paint the tips pink, blue, purple... etc. Sigh... great ammo now preturbed. Oh well, at least its the though that counts.


December 27, 2007, 04:43 PM
My inlaws gave me $200, which I immediately converted into an excellent-condition Yugo SKS. (Regular $199, but the good folks at ClassicArms.com were having a $20-off-any-SKS sale, so I got it for $179... sweet!)

December 27, 2007, 05:43 PM
I got a marlin 1895 GS .45/70. Its a blast to shoot but i may go broke doing so

December 27, 2007, 06:07 PM
My fiance bought me a six-month membership to one of the local ranges! Total surprise, didn't see it coming.

Oh, and a 100 count box of WWB .45.:D

Plus she agreed to take a CCW course with me.
Good gun year.

December 27, 2007, 09:05 PM
I got a Marlin 917v and a set of leupold rings for christmas, now to find a scope.... Also went to dinner at the wifes parents and picked up a nice little glenfield model 75 off of my brother in law for $40.

December 28, 2007, 01:16 AM
Nice minty S&W 17-4, target hammer, trigger and stocks. Box and papers, from a mom & pop shop in Iowa.


December 28, 2007, 01:49 AM
Here are some pictures that I said I'd upload from my previous post in here.

Norinco M14S
Norinco SKS
Glock shoulder stock (not sure of make) the glock I had already owned, just got the stock for christmas. Can't wait to try it out at 20yards
My girlfriend also got me this coat for my dog, good for a laugh. Me and my dad laughed at my dog for a good half hour, was pretty funny. His name is 'kilo' so we were making up names, commander kilo, sargeant kilo, lol etc. Too much fun.

December 28, 2007, 03:04 AM
My brother got me a magazine for my AR and an ERGO Suregrip that I'd been wanting.

My Mom bought me the YHM Free-floating forearm that I wanted too, now I'm AR-less until my upper gets back.

Oh and I bought myself a Sg P226 .40S&W for a birthday/Christmas present.

Best gun year yet.

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year

December 28, 2007, 08:08 AM
A book on gunsmithing. Good, basic information.

December 29, 2007, 02:44 AM
Nothing gun related.

Got some money though. Probably spend it on an ar lower or somethin like that.

December 29, 2007, 04:05 PM
Got me this new 627-4 in .38 Super; -- it's a 8 shooter !!!!!

December 29, 2007, 04:19 PM
What are those red things? and the little silver loop?
Belt holders for cylinders?

heh.. at first I thought they were cartridges! wondering how in the hell they would fit into that cylinder...

December 29, 2007, 04:57 PM
picked up another old El Paso Weaver V4.5 20mm scope, and my wife bought me a new Bushnell elite 4200 3X9 scope.
I also was gifted with 1000 rounds of IGMAN M855 5.56, and 1000 rounds of Lithuanian 7.62 NATO.

December 29, 2007, 08:31 PM
Red things are moon clip holders. The little silver loop is a detachable factory muzzle break/compinsator. Look close at the end of the revolvers brl. and you can see that there is a removeable thread/muzzle protector installed ---- revolver came with both --- moon clip holders are aftermarket.

December 29, 2007, 09:06 PM
My gun related gift from my wife was that she let me go to Cabelas and buy some rainier bullets for my .45. It's just better for both of us that I do the buying instead of having her drive there to get it.

December 29, 2007, 10:12 PM
1. Enough $ to buy the 1911 I've always wanted
2. Family member (widow of a hunter) let me borrow her Ruger mk II hunter, and Browning A-bolt for an indeterminate period of time.

so I'll be going home with 3 guns this Christmas...

December 30, 2007, 09:48 AM
i got a les baer premier II and the wife got a fully tricked out ruger 10/22 rifle and david yurman ring (anniversary/christmas gift) :p

December 30, 2007, 12:05 PM
My wife, who isn't a "gun-person" but thinks if you want you should be allowed to own a weapon, surprised the heck out of me by getting me a M-1D Garand in June and kept it hid from til Christmas. I think I'll keep her.

December 30, 2007, 12:18 PM
1944 remington rand from dad, 50 rd box of self defence 45 from a friend and 100 rounds of 45 from a co worker. i dont know if this would be considered gun related but dad also gave me a complete ww2 helmet.

December 30, 2007, 07:49 PM
I was fortunate enough to acquire my Christmas / Birthday present a month early. Took me until just before Christmas to finish it.

Lyman GPR kit, 50 Cal Perc. Shoots pretty well also :)



December 30, 2007, 08:58 PM
Nice smokepole!
Well, I did surprise the wife, and with a lot of help from anincredible thrid party, this was her Christmas present.


I got the flu. The gift that keeps on giving. Good thing I am on vacation until January...maybe I'll be able to breathe then...
