What firearms related gifts did you get for Christmas?

Lets see what you found under your tree

I was nuked by a drunk driver a few months back and have been going through some major recovery, but I survived, so that was the best gift. That said, everyone felt sorry for me so I made out like a bandit this year

My wife found me another NIB Timberwolf 357 to add to the collection, she also bought me a pair of Canon IS binoculars as an early gift while I was stuck in bed.

Family pitched in as a group and I received a new 3" King Cobra as well as a NIB Ruger Old Army, stainless, fixed sight, 5.5" barrel. Ive been looking for one for ages as they were the least produced, never thought I would have one NIB but here she is.

TBM glad to hear you're ok. That Old Army looks SWEET.

We were pretty broke for Christmas this year so I'm just continuing to save for a small 9mm like the Sig P365.

I got a couple small wedge shaped bags to try out with the TC Contender I'm playing around with right now. Still trying to figure out a good setup for shooting this thing off the bench.

Well, I didn't get any firearms related presents this year.

BUT, my step daughter's boyfriend and I went out Christmas Eve morning and did some shooting. He had a freshly built AR in .300 Blackout. It was sweet, with very little recoil.

I want an AR but one that shoots 7.62 x 39 and accepts AK mags. Shooting his rifle has reignited my interest.

I got some cash and gift cards. So I've used it to order up a Ruger American standard model in 308Win, paired with the Vortex Crossfire II 3-9x40. Cannot wait for it to arrive!

A rifle stock from Richards Microfit. Best specimen as far as well inletted and nice shape I have gotten from that place. My loving spouse knows that I get ringy duringJanuary through March from being housebound due to weather. So this gift is a deterrent to the drag a** wintertime blues and will keep me busy. Also got gift cards to Cabela's--don't look a gift horse in the mouth--so bullets and powder will be forthcoming. Best gift of all was from the youngest daughter. She's really strapped for cash this winter, but gave me a Christmas tree ornament made out of shotgun shells. Knowing they are struggling but still gave me something made it really special.

Eggleston Bullets makes coated bullets in a bunch of colors. I told my daughter to let each
grand daughter pick out a color in 9mm 147s for me. Now I can load them up (for the girls to shoot with me). Best gift ever!!!

I bought myself a few things:

*3-Wilson mags in God's Caliber
*3-Tripp mags, also in God's Caliber
*2-Amazon Alexas so I can have stereo sound in my reloading room while I am reloading ammo in God's caliber.
*10k lead bullets in (you guessed it) God's caliber for next year's range practice.

P12: I got the 3X version. I got it dialed in today. Seems to be a solid acquisition.

A few days before Christmas I asked my wife if she got me anything firearms-related and she replied, "No, you need a 12-step group more than another gun". Outrageous!

I went to my dependable fall-back guy - Santa. He came through for me with a Smith and Wesson pre-rail model 3953 TSW. He couldn't deliver to my house but left instructions to pick it up at my local FFL on New Year Eve Day. A nice way to close out the year.
