    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.

    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 for Christmas though. Does that count? :)

    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:

    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.

    I gave my son a bare-bones Remington Model 700 BDL 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.

    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

    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.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS

    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.

    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

    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.
