    So, I thought it might be a good thread this time of year.

    Basic idea, is; Did you ask for a gun, or gun related for christmas?

    If you got it already, share.

    If you got something for someone else, also please share.


    I already got one of my christmas presents.. (All I wanted actually)

    A shotgun. New England Firearms Pardner Protector. So far, I love everything about it, the feel, the look, ect. Planning to go out and shoot it today for the first time.

    I requested a Weihrauch HW97K... not a powder-burner, but still a gun. :p

    I have asked for and expect to get a set of VZ Alien grips for one of my 1911's. Also expect to get a Choate mag extension for my 870 and possibly a Wilson Combat flat checkered mainspring housing for a 1911.

    I already have my "from me to me" Christmas present. A Milt Sparks Axiom holster for my CBOB and a Milt Sparks PMK for my SP101.

    I find my home life less strenuous and much more peaceful if I leave my better half totally out of the picture when it comes to firearm Christmas presents.

    I'm ordering my Christmas present from Joe at Crossroad Arms this year; a CZ 550 American Safari Magnum in .375 H&H.

    As is the case every year, I’m told that a firearm is not an appropriate Christmas present. Her opinion is that they’re OK for birthday presents though. I, of course, disagree wholeheartedly, I believe – and I think all here would agree - that a firearm is an appropriate present at any time of the year. Evidently I need to change my present request tactics.

    No guns this year but I am expecting a very exciting package of tube socks.

    little brother is getting me a gun, told him i wanted him to choose. I'm gettin him a 10/22 (his first gun ever!). Plus I ordered myself a nice custom leather holster from a fellow member on the forum.
    Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and yours!

    She obviously hasn't read this ;)
    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me - a gun

    My daughter is getting the rifle she asked for and was thrilled with the handgun she got the year before.

    Guns for Christmas are great.

    I got my son (22 months) a cricket for his present. I am asking for an MP5, or an AK. I don't think i am getting them though.

    Other than that,asked for a red dot for one of the AR's,if so cool,if not i will get it for myself anyway.
    To me the whole year is like Christmas,recently in one week alone i added 6 new firearms to the safe.

    My wife gave me a Christmas card and told me to go buy a gun. Since we always open presents, there will also be some tube socks, some M&M Peanuts, a couple of shirts and maybe a jacket.

    Her? She wants diamonds of course. What's new? :laugh: :laugh:

    She has now! ;)

    Thanks for the link! I got my five year old a Henry Youth bolt action. I suppose I should tell my wife that I've done that at some point. :D

    Asked for and got a Weatherby 12ga Pump. 3" chamber, beautiful finish. She does not know it yet, but I got her a 410 pump too, to try and get her interested in shooting shotguns. Did not want to start her off with a 12ga!
    Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

    I gave my best friends dad, who was like my own father growing up, a MAK 90 that has the slant back, so modifications are kind of screwed. Put a Draganov style stock on it and it covered the rear slant and has a great LOP that fits him.

    I gave it to him early so I can refinish it and do a few other little tricks to it. Going to teach him how to load magazines, shoot and maintain the AK style rifle. He has been hunting all his life so I am not teaching him much.
