    Which classic hunting rifle would like to see under your tree in the morning? Perhaps it doesn't qualify as "classic" but it's my post so I'm asking Santa for a stainless Sako AV fiberclass chambered in 338 win mag. If that's not classic enough maybe a JC Higgins model 50 chambered in 270 win. I even took down my stocking and hung up a rifle scabbard.... I guess we'll see what the morning brings. Have very blessed and Merry Christmas.

    I asked for a suppressor but Uncle Sam is still thinking about whether I was Naughty or Nice...

    Lol, you and me both... Apparently the cookies and milk I sent in with my Form 4 didn't do much to grease the skids.

    Not a rifle but I have it on good authority that I’m getting a GPS range bag.

    Oh yea, he already brought the stripped lowers!

    I'd like to see a Winchester Model 70 with a medium heavy barrel chambered in 30-06. Complete of course, with a walnut stock, deep glossy bluing, and a matching Leupold optic.

    My Browning M71 converted to a .50-110 will be coming in from Turnbull sometime next week. So not quite in time for Christmas, but quite the present!

    I want an official Red Ryder, carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.

    Wouldn't mind a well preserved, little used Winchester Model 94 (in .30-30 of course), under the old Christmas tree. Probably not going to happen but a guy can dream...

    A pre '64 of course. This is exactly what I'd like to see under the tree. Except in .308 win. I believe under 3000 pre '64's were chambered in .308 win., so Santa would have to do some searching.

    A MRC X2 in .308, Leupold 3.5x10 VXi and Leupold 2 piece bases with medium rings. Santa gave me the blessing to make the purchase - I will wait until after the holidays and see if the prices drop to pre-holiday levels. HO! HO! HO!

    Told my son the last couple years to go dig around in the back of one of the gun cabinets and find something he hasn't seen me shoot. Darn it if he didn't find something I forgot I had! I was surprised and it was as cheap as it gets.:thumbup:

    I asked Santa for S&W 686 Delux but know it wont happen so settle for an extra day off.

    Goodies for my new ar. Having just gotten into the ar game, I need it all . Hopefully Santa's bringing me a new carry case, a front sling sivel stud, a scope mount high enough to clear my front sight and maybe a new red dot sight. A new trigger would be nice too.

    Not a classic, but couldn't resist the deal on a T/C Compass in 204 Ruger for an extra rifle for the UTV. Merry Christmas to me.

    I didn't ask for anything, but did buy myself a scope and a range finder, both of which were on sale. The wife and I don't buy each other Christmas presents anymore, we buy for the kids, nephew/nieces/grand kids.

    I didn't ask for anything either as we had a tough year with a lot of unplanned expenses. So the wife and I are going without to make sure that Santa can take care of our son this year.

    Merry Christmas to everyone!

    I didn't ask Santa for anything for me but playing Santa for the gf I made sure that he brings her two extra mags for her SIG P320, a Crimson Trace laser for her SIG and a nice Hogue rifle bag since she's always using mine. :D If I had asked Santa for anything it would be a Daniel Defense 11.5" 5.56 upper and a CZ Scorpion SBR.

    I'd love a Ruger #1 in .300 H&H...but I doubt Santa could fit that under the tree ... so I'll settle for smiles on the kids' faces instead. :)

    Merry Christmas to you all. :thumbup:
