I got a 30+ year old, used Pachmayr butt pad.
Doesn't sound all that great... but it's the last puzzle piece for a $13 "parts gun" shotgun I've been bringing back from the dead.

My family decided not to exchange gifts this year, so we all just went out and got ourselves a present. Got myself a Henry 30-30 Brass Reciever, been wanting one forever.

My folks got me this, which I thought was cool.

My present to myself was to get this old girl back together. It's been floating around the shop in pieces since '98 or '99. I got the needed screws from Numerich Monday and got her back together. Now I need enbloc clips and ammo. It's a Steyr M95 in 8x56R.

Well I had to buy mine myself, but I got a Cougar in .40 s&w ... my first .40. Tough choice as there are always so many you want.

Nice set up there Kappe, that looks like it's going to be a lot of fun!
597 VTR, because there's so many cans and so little time!

Received a gun cleaning kit from my nephew that I desperately needed, got a Jack Daniels bullet pen from my brother. I gave both of them cleaning kits and Tekmats.

High Noon Rock Steady gun belt, and this beauty.

The sharp eyed will see it is for a Glock 19. The really sharp ones will remember I said I don't own a Glock. See, this one is for work, since I cannot STAND Fobus holsters - yes, that IS what they issue us for daily use. Blecch.

Here is with a little polish added.

Hey, that looks good. Let me know how it works for you---I'm looking for a good clip-on holster.

My oldest son bought me a combo red dot and flashlight for my pump shotgun. he has laughed at my rubber banded led flashlight for the past couple of years. the opossums I have assasinated on my property didn't laugh, but now I can light them up and red dot them before I say something prophetic like "Say hello to my little friend!"

I also got a Gamo Silent Cat .177 caliber pellet rifle. Silent death to the infidel smaller garden pests!

From my number 2 son I got a a boxed set of books called "America's Premier Gunmakers." The set covers Colt, Browning, Remington, and Winchester. Lots of histry and some very interesting pictures.

Not directly gun related but it may come in handy for some gun work I received an entire set of acessory bits for my Dremel tool.

I also got a JawHorse portable vice that has possibilities to be adapted to a gun rest for siting in rifles.

Santa was good to my grand daughter and managed to bring her a 525 round box of Federal .22lr. She is an avid shooter and owns one of the Cricket .22lr rifles.

I hope you all had great Christmases with lots of family and friends and good times!

I found a S&W 19-3 RB snub Christmas Eve at a great price - my gift to myself. Wife will get even in the gift shop on our next cruise though!
