    I told Santa not to believe those lyin’ scoundrels – I HAVE BEEN A GOOD BOY THIS YEAR. We’ll see if he fell for it..

    I have everything I wanted, firearms wise but did renew my range membership.

  9. avatar Bloving says:

    Just finished a breakfast of homemade chocolate donuts with whiskey glaze – wifey wanted a donut pan for Christmas and Santa made good on it.
    Merry Christmas, y’all. I’m off to cut some leather now and work on another holster.
    As for those of you who got coal – just remember: coal is flammable.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    1. avatar Ed Rogers says:

      Sorry if I’ve missed it but do you have a good news update for us?

      1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

        Doing well. Doc was amazed.
        The sensations on the back of my right hand are different. But Iā€™m back to work, using tweezers and other small instruments.
        Currently wearing a small heart monitor to see if something like atrial fibrillation is the culprit.
        I am very thankful for the well wishes and that I have pretty good insurance.

        1. avatar Ed Rogers says:


        2. avatar Jim Bullock says:

          Well, there’s a gift right there. Thank you for telling us.

        3. avatar Garrison Hall says:

          Good news. Good docs are definitely worth the money they charge.

        4. avatar MyName says:

          That’s fantastic.

          Merry Christmas to all.

  13. avatar Elaine D. says:

    Merry Chimus yawl. Hope it’s a sweet one. Like sugah!


    1. OMG! Chaka Khan! I though she was retired from the music industry! Cool tune: post modern retro-funk. Fired it though JBL Charge 3 to get some Bass bump…Merry X-mas ! Mostly like Psy-Trance, Neuro-funk, Ambient, Bass & Drum, etc…

      1. avatar Elaine D. says:


        I am all about that video. I just want to be the woman in the orange suit for ONE DAY. How can any human being be that cool. I wanted to embed the damn video, but apparently Iā€™m a technidiot.

        1. avatar ACP_armed says:

          Video links will automatically embed if you just put a basic link in the post.

          Marry Christmas!

  14. avatar Manse Jolly says:

    Thanks for the Bull Belt Tip Dan. It is working out great!

    Merry Christmas to all.

  15. avatar Scooter says:

    I was good enough for a shooting table, rifle rest, and AR500 target!

  16. avatar uncommon_sense says:

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    I did not get any firearms related gifts this year — which is fine because I probably have enough of that stuff. (And before anyone says that you can never have too many firearms and ammunition, I am at the point where I would not know where to put additional firearms or ammunition!)

    As a consolation prize I did get a bottle of premium vodka and a jar of home-made tomato/vegetable juice for out-of-this-world Bloody Mary cocktails. I will be quite happy with that!

      “As a consolation prize I did get a bottle of premium vodka and a jar of home-made tomato/vegetable juice”

      Borrowing from Redd Foxx, I bought a magnum of Ripple, and a cheap champagne. Mixed together it forms Champipple. Wow. Great Stuff. Makes you forget where you put your house.

        Makes you forget where you put your house.

        I’ll bet!

        And probably causes a horrific hangover to boot!

    Merry Christmas y’all!

    And TTAG remains on the naughty list until it returns the edit function and navigation buttons.

  19. Merry Christmas to all.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    This guy could use some help this Christmas:

    1. avatar M1Lou says:

      Merry Christmas.

      I did my part! What a crock the laws are in NY.

  22. avatar Bob'syouruncle says:

    Merry Christmas to all. The misses got me a lee reloading kit and some carbide die kits.

  23. avatar Michael Buley says:

    Merry Christmas, TTAG! I appreciate all you do. I’ve learned a great deal from the articles, and from everything that others generously share here. On to 2019 — here’s to guns and the good people who own them and fight to keep the right — and all of our rights!

  24. avatar Mikial says:

    Merry Christmas everyone!

  25. avatar The Rookie says:

    Merry Christmas!

  26. avatar Buff cousin Elroy says:

    Happy Thanksgiving mofos!

  27. avatar Toni says:

    I am going to be getting a book i read about in the Australia, New Zealand Handgunner magazine on pistol manufacturing. It was released about 4 years ago in German and has only just been released in English after extensive translation work. It probably wont be here for a few months but we are a little on the broke side this Christmas due to getting married in November. Other than that i will begetting some of the tools i need to get to work on my shed which will contain my reloading bench and hopefully a manual lathe/mill

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:


      I see where you are going and commend you for it.

      I wish you could be more open about your details and process: it would make for a fantastic series of articles! Unfortunately, given the political and legal landscape with respect to firearms down under, I don’t think it is wise to say anything more than you already have.

      1. avatar Toni says:

        thankyou. cant afford to buy lathe mill etc so will also be building my own to get me started on the path. It will be a while before i could produce a production level item but nothing bar death will dissuade me

  28. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    Merry Christmas to everyone and especially to Elaine D, Piper Smith and the rest of the Liberal gun owners.

    1. avatar Piper Smith says:

      I’m an ancap/libertarian/anti-federalist tyvm.

  29. avatar Angry 365 says:

    Merry Christmas to everyone EXCEPT active combatants opposing the US Military. Know this: our brave warriors will soon arrange a face-to-face meeting for you with whatever being you worship.
    From my family to your hoard of smelly wretched bastards: a heartfelt wish that you not only rot in hell, but writhe in eternal pain for the evil you have foisted on innocents, Americans, and the world. Puck you!
    The words I really wanted to use were omitted because it’s Christmas. But they are sailor approved.

  30. avatar Craig in IA says:

    Merry Christmas to everyone who can read this. I hope you could take a moment or two alone to ponder the true significance of Christmas to all of the people of world.

    Interesting to see nearly everyone here united in a common cause, that’s a good start. Personally, I will pray that God reveals himself to that “hoard of smelly wretched bastards” and changes their hearts as forgiveness to all is the reason for Christ’s coming. (Read about Saul/Paul if you have any questions… ) I know it’s easier to kill than to save. Just a thought.

    Bought myself a very nice Model 21 20 ga skeet for Christmas present, early model in superb condition, dealer pal is buying some property and needed to raise some quick cash so I obliged him. We are both happy and I took a couple close-in pheasants with it on the 23rd with my pointer.

    Anyway, All the best and I hope this year is even better for everyone than the one we’re closing out,

  31. Merry Christmas to you Dan Zimmerman and Merry Christmas to all. and have a safe and Happy New Year.
