    1st post on THR....Merry Christmas:What-ja-get

    Being this will be my first post on THR......Merry Christmas to all.

    I didn't get anything firearms related for Chrismas (yet...got a gift card) except a new forum to post on (Thanks OLEG!!!!!). anyway, I got a new coffee cup (#1 Dad) and some new house slippers. The kids got everything on their lists of course, but I should mention that their list were quite modest. My wife and I will get ourselves something after the post-Christmas sales start.

    Our first duty will be to get the Kia back on the road. It started acting stupid on the 23rd. Can't do anything for it till I can get hold of a diagnostic scanner for it. Without the Kia, all I have is my patrol car to drive so it's a priority. I refuse to let bad luck ruin my Christmas though.

    Anyway the point of this post is to say Merry Chrismas and to ask the question, What-ja-get??????

    Hi. I was smithz on TFL.

    Although I received some precious loot this year, I was lucky enough to be able to give loved ones some nice gear: a CZ-75 Compact for my SO, and a Surefire E2E + extras for my brother.

    holiday best,
    Zak

    Erik's family finally got it through their heads that yes, I really do want gun-stuff. So, under my tree I found:

    An Alessi Ankle Rig
    4 Wilson 47D magazines
    A Rafters gunbelt

    And a bunch of clothes. BUT... They mostly said Carhartt on their labels. One label even said Royal Robins.

    Merry Christmas, indeed!

    :)

    Well I got a gun vise, a cleaning kit witch I didnn't need but one of the things you can never have to much of. I also got some ammo for one of my rifles, a custom shooting table for benchrest shooting and what I think is going to be a nice carry belt along with cash for the gun fund :D

    I got a heavy-duty field knife (TOPS "Smoke Jumper"), "Band of Brothers" on DVD, and a book called "The Marine Corps:Three Centuries of Glory". No firearms, but I already got a Benelli Nova for my birthday two months ago.

    Wow, I can't wait till i have family members who accept my hobby and get me gun related stuff for christmas. Nobody I know will accept my passion for self- preservation. My wife thinks I'm a nut because i read a couple of gun mags and post on a gun forum. Go figure.

    Sounds like a nice Christmas all around. If I have anything left after the car repairs I'll consider a digital camera or a DVD player.
    Jeff, can you hit those clays (in air) with the 7.62X54R???????????

    Greeting's All,

    I really needed!

    Best Wishes,

    First post----Yeee-haaaa!

    Hi again, friends!

    Got myself a nicely customized Colt 1917 Army, in .45 LC. Boy, it looks sweet---and a bargain at $325! :)

    Now, can't wait to shoot it! One question, though, for all:

    Are there any aftermarket grips that I can buy that will fit on this revolver? I'm not too sure if I could just get a pair that would fit Anacondas, or what.

    Thanks for the forum, Oleg! :cool:
