A pair of mint shootin' shell Fanner 50's in a double holster would set you back more than a lot of real nice guns these days.
Lucky you! I have a wood coal kitchen stove. That stuff got expensive over the years. BTW, got a whole ham with potatoes cooking in that stove right now that I Should check.
And don't feel bad, I never get gun stuff on Christmas. With us that's a birthday thing.
I live vicariously through youguys - I have never been given a firearms for any holiday be it Christmas or birthday I have given guns as presents, but never received one for any "special occasion". Always cool when someone does!!
Just gave 100 rounds each of .380 to my twin grandkids (age 28) to go with the new pocket pistols (Ruger LCP & Remington RM380) I gIfted them.
Gave 200 rounds of 9mm to one of my sons to go with the new Ruger SR9 I gifted him today.
Also gave 50 rounds of 9mm each to my other son & his wife for the pistols they were gifted several years ago (Ruger Sr9 & S&W Shield).
I think they were all more excited about the ammo than the guns.
Gifted two nice old Winchester Model 67 single shot .22 rifles to my youngest grandkids (17 and 10) today. Those are worthy of a picture.
.. Grips & scope added about a year later.
The original grips were long gone , the gun wore some big , nasty looking - but great shooting FITZ targets. I took a step in the right direction and reshaped a set of inexpensive wooden target grips to fit my hands , preserving the great handling characteristics of the FITZ grips.
What a great target revolver that simple old Colt is.
Merry Christmas folks.
This was last Christmas...
Please inform your father that I am available for adoption.
but I was one happy camper when he did!
Have gifted a lot of guns at Christmas to the kids.
Looks like a KelTec.
Oh how I wanted that but the PX at Clark AFB did not have it. And they converted a hanger into toyland. Did get a GIJoe w M1
I’m starting this as well. Started this year by giving my grandson of 10 weeks old a Henry Youth lever action .22. Probably look at giving him a different gun every Christmas and birthday as long as I’m above the dirt.
Got ammo (way more important than a new gun to a kid trying to feed a serious shooting habit), socks, and school clothes......other stuff also, but no guns.
Politely took it from him. You’d have thought I shot his dog. Went to the tree and got the other one, with the package modified before wrapping so they didn’t appear to be the same thing. Let him open and keep that one....
Funniest thing was, the folks had bought me a Remington speedmaster that year as sort of a “congratulations on the real job” present.
We still refer to that as the Firearm Christmas.
My only other Christmas gift came this year when my wife saw a Facebook comment I made on a S&W 686, thank you Facebook algorithms. She said she didn’t know what to get me this year and told me she’d like me to buy the gun I commented on. Well you don’t have to tell me twice.
Then in about 1968 when I was 13, Dad gave me a Savage 24 22/20. He bought himself a Winchester 1400 16 gauge. We lived in Kentucky and he had a friend with a large farm. We made some great memories walking fence rows hunting cottontails.
I’ve still got it.
