    My wife was kind enough to get me a new Browning A-Bolt in .270 Win. And topped it off with a Leupold VX-II

    The good folks at Bushmaster are shipping my NM 20" A3 upper out tomorrow, and it should get here about the same time as the completed Bushy lower I'm waiting on my FFL to take delivery of.

    I picked up the first part of my Christmas present on the 23rd, a Chinese SKS in great condition.

    Matching serial number, incredible wood, metal in very good condition, and the bbl is in very good shape. Looks like someone was setting this one up as a collection piece, since it is in such good shape. Doesn't even look like anyone had ever fired it.

    Ofcourse, i think if anyone did fire it without inspecting it, it probably would have slam fired non stop, considering that the bolt was pack with new grease (lightyellowish), and the firing pin would barely move with all the grease inside. I soaked the bolt in solvent for an hour or so, and got it to be nice and smooth again.

    The second part of my present is 500 rounds of ammo and stripper clips, and we will be ordering those tommarow. :D

    Now i just need to find a place to go shoot.

    I bought myself a birch stock M1A for Xmas. Of course, I'm going to have to sell my DPMS AR to absorb some cost of it.

    I guess the birch stock is not as desireable as a walnut, but I think it's pretty.

    My dad gave me a rilfe he picked up from a friend. Its from Sears, back in they day when they sold guns, a JC Higgins 51L in 30-06. Apparently this is an HVA product. It seems in pretty good shape since he refinished the stock--hope to try it out this weekend!

    Thanks SantaDad

    Bought myself my own Christmas gift a few weeks ago. Couldn't pass it up. It's a Colt Match Target Lightweight. 16 inch barrel, red dot sight, 5 mags, carrying case with 5 mag holders on case. Brand new weapon never fired bought from an individual. An Army SF buddy and I dialed her in last weekend. What a tack driver!!!! I absolutely love it. MERRY CHRISTMAS to me!!!!!!

    It's more accurate through the irons or the red dot than my Browning .22. Would highly recommend one to anyone that doesn't have one yet. And BTW the 16 inch is more than enough for anything I'll ever need it for. :D

    M1 Carbine. Inland. Nice stock, decent finish. Good gun. Goes with the Kabar in D2 tool steel and SOE thigh holster I also got. It was a tactical Christmas. Life is good. Now if I can just get orders to the sandbox before the war kicks off..... S/F...Ken M

    We're not having our Christmas til this morning for logistical reasons. I already know I'm getting an M48 Mauser since I'm the one who had to order it. I also plan on getting a Garand to celebrate graduating PLDC in January or Febuary.

    Wow just picked up the pre 64 Mod 70 "westerner" 264 win mag with unertl Vulture 10x scope with 3 dots of smallersizes looks spaced for long distance. I got this and a .358 Norma Mag with 4x unertl post in an estate sale a week ago. They look good. I gave away 4 guns to 4 sons for Christmas worth $4000. Took daughter and granddaughters to 2 days in Disney land for Christmas. Wife said I deserved $1000 in new guns for Christmas, well I guess she wasn't countin the 629 Mountain Gun I got last week as last Kali handgun before 2003 fiasco.:)

    I got two.
    Of course I bought them myself.
    My dog just couldn't find time in his day to buy me anything.
    I returned the favor to him.

    I got an AR15 SP1 circa 1968 and a Colt Lightweight Sporter AR15 in 9mm Nato which was manufactured in 1978 but was new in the box in Dec. 2002. Worked a 48 hour shift for the last two days and a 24 hour shift tomorrow to pay for them. I shot the 9mm today. Didn't shoot for crap. Hopefully some better handloads will help that. The aftermarket mags that I bought in anticipation of this event also wouldn't feed a single round. Maybe longer roundnosed bullets will solve that problem but I am not holding my breath. The SP1 runs great thankfully.
