Xmas is a common abbreviation of the word Christmas. It is sometimes pronounced /ˈɛksməs/, but Xmas, and variants such as Xtemass, originated as handwriting abbreviations for the typical pronunciation /ˈkrɪsməs/.

What would be a better take to the range or all around gun for a gift for my father inlaw? Torn between a beautiful 1951 marlin 336a. It had nice character and wear on it. Not abused looking but not brand new either. Just had that "I got plenty more life in me" look.
Or just a plain ole brand...
