    What did you ask "Santa", Mrs. Claus or the "elves" to bring you for Christmas? How likely is it that it will happen?

    I asked Santa for a Remington 870 Wingmaster 12 gauge.

    I asked Mrs. Claus for an Upland Hunting textbook.

    I asked the elf for a pheasant hunting book or magazine, and a box of 12 gauge shells with #4 shot.

    How likely to happen? Santa delivered!! :D Not that I would peek in the package. :eek:

    By the way, Merry Christmas all! May your New Year be safe, and the beginnings of the best year yet of your life.

    I requested reloading components. For those in my family who are afraid they'll buy the wrong things, I asked for gift cards to Cabela's, where I may redeem them for reloading components. :D

    Great idea!

    I didn't think of the gift card concept. Still time left to "plant some seeds".

    A safe return of our heroes (Troops) back to their families and loved ones.
    That would make me very very happy.

    All I asked for was my wife to stop complaining how much I've been spending on reloading supplies. We'll see what happens.:uhoh:

    I didn't ask for anything for Christmas. I'm still mad at Santa Claus since he didn't bring me that Sears&Roebuck .410 SxS when I was 8 or 9. :cuss: No wonder kids quit believing in him.:scrutiny: :uhoh: :fire:

    I asked Santa for a Leupold VX-1 3-9X40 for me .30-06, if I get it the scope will be my first piece of good glass(well relatively good anyway)

    I also am getting a Gander Mtn gift card which will probably go towards ammo.

    I got a EOTech 512, a Tipton "best gun vise", 2 lbs of elk jerky, and a membership to the NRA from my folks.

    I got myself a CZ P-01, 10 30rd AR-15 mags, enhanced Magpul-followers for all mags, Magpulls for all mags, 500 rounds of british 5.56, and a RRA Dominator mount for the EOTech.

    My AR is now complete. Utah coyotes beware.

    Not my holiday, but for Saturnalia I'm asking for a debauched orgy on a Later Roman Empire scale complete with exotic slave girls with large breasts, rare foods, fine wines, and depravity that would shame demons from the Pit.

    I'll settle for the new Buddy Guy album, roasted duck and a new router :)

    I asked Santa for the day off from work After Christmas to drive down to Four Seasons to blow what's left of my Christmas bonus .... He came through.

    As for the Big Xmas itself : It'll just be surprise day , I didn't ask for anything.

    I did not ask. I have 2 presents & both are WAY to big & heavy for conceal carry.
    Might should have asked. It might be tools that you have to WORK with.:barf:

    Just a pair of millenium pro 40 magazines, they're $35 each, it'll save me $70. If I get them for christmas and I think I will, that will give me a total of 5.:D

    Marlin 1895GS, but think the budget is going to dictate that as a B-day present rather than Christmas.

    I asked for an m1a...sadly there are no boxes of that size near or under the tree. Perhaps the taxman will bring it with him.

    I asked santa for a MN Laminate M44. But since he dosn;t have a FFL or C&R i will have to settle for some $ and order it myself after christmas.

    Merry Christmas

    I asked "Santa" for a CZ 550 American Magnum in .458 Lott but she said I hadn't been that good this year. So we will see what happens Monday. :fire:

    Same here...

    Zero chances:

    The same for me, an early Christmas. My Wingmaster arrived early. "Santa" must have believed me to have been real good to have delivered it early. That doesn't sound right, does it? It was that, or because Mrs. Claus really likes pheasant and it is pheasant season!

    I can hardly wait to open the gifts from Mrs. Claus. She usually brings me some really cool hunting, shooting or collecting books about firearms, or as I call them, "Eye candy" books.

    Reloading equipment! I'd say chances are pretty good (100% in fact).
