    Here's what I got for Christmas from my wife...

    [​IMG]

    Yes, the one, the only, the (almost) authentic Thompson M1.

    No, it doesn't have the fun switch..can't have them in the great State of Warshington, dont'cha know...Nor can I enjoy an SBR...

    but who cares!?! Now, y'all excuse me--I need to heat this thing up!

    What did you get?

    My wife-in-five-months got me:
    Kimber .22 conversion kit for my 1911s,
    Spare magazine for above,
    Chrony Master,
    Roy Dunlap's "Gunsmithing."

    Powderman, your wife and mine should get together for coffee!!!!

    This year Deb'll have her permit, so maybe Santa will bring a S&W M&P next Christmas!

    Well, the fiance got me the ABCs of Reloading and Handloader's Digest. For a gal on a limited budget she did alright. Can't wait until we are married and the budget grows a bit :neener: ! Till then, the joys of the college life.

    I got a spotting scope and a couple boxes of '06. Looks like you had one heck of a Christmas though.

    Christmas Goodies.....

    I got a Glock 26 that I've already done the trigger job on. Grip reduction in progress as we speak. :what: Daughter got me ammo componets and Mom got me a new CCU for a G-20. They got what they wanted and then some but I got the better end of that deal... :eek:


    ..wandering off to look for a G-20 in good shape.... :neener:

    I got all kinds of stuff but the only firearm related item came from my dad. This little .22 was made sometime in the 20's the last number in the date had an "R" stamped over it and as close as I can figure it was made by Domingo Acha y Cia. (Spain) but I'm not sure. Anyone got ideas?

    Nice Thomson you got there, great Christmas present especially from the wife. Mine says I have too many guns already so I know I'll never get one from her.

    I got lucky, ammo, a new shot timer and a spoting scope.

    Pretty good haul.

    My major gift!

    My major gift was the birth of our miracle baby, and the gun related is our Cannon 32 gun safe the wife snuck in on me. She's a pretty good ole gal. Never complains about my purchases, but frequently tries to claim ownership on newly acquired 1911 purchases. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from TN.

    Well, I got a factory nickel 1976 COLT Lawman MK-III .357 magnum with
    original walnut grips and a 2" barrel.

    I think your Thompson trumps the case of .45 target ammo I got. *envy* : )

    Underware!!!

    Dang man, I'm going to have to get my future ex-wife to start reading this forum. Once again it's been confirmed. If my washing machine broke tomorrow I'd have clean underware for 6 months.

    Anybody want to trade for some ties ???

    I finally got the family trained. Wife, mother, mother in law, sister in law, and brother in law (in law? [Wife's sister's husband. Don't much care, other than the fact that the second appellation is humorous; they're just family to me. :)]) all got me gift certificates to my favorite gun store.

    With which I went and bought myself some good old Browning designed shotgun-ness. :)

    My lady wife gave me a very generous gift card to buy power tools at Home Depot.

    I see a table saw and a router in my future... and clamps...
