We hope that you managed to make the ‘nice’ list this year and found something fun under the tree with your name on it. If you were really nice, maybe Santa even left some ammo for you. We hear he’s been cracking the whip, working the elves overtime cranking out gun food as it’s been on just about every gun owner’s list this year.

But whether there was a case of 9mm FMJ under your tannenbaum or just a lump of coal, here’s hoping you have yourself a merry little Christmas as 2020 finally, mercifully draws to a close. From all of us at TTAG to all of you, thanks for reading and enjoy your holiday.

  1. Merry Christmas to all who wander here.

    Going to go bird shooting today. Got a flock of pigeons that are crapping all over a solar panel grid at a winery.

      • “Statements like this right here are what make me want to be like you when I grow up.”

        You want to tear off the door on your new truck because you forgot to set the brake?

        (I’ll never grow up, being a kid is too much fun! πŸ˜‰ )

        • I damaged a car door in much the same way. I also rolled a car once and was in a head on. Had to go to the ER once because of a motorcycle and once because of a bicycle.

          Life happens. And it is always fatal. Merry effin’ Christmas. πŸ™‚

        • “Had to go to the ER once because of a motorcycle and once because of a bicycle.”

          ER twice for kidney stones, and the combo plate of an ambulance ride, ER admittance, and a 5 days in the trauma ward, with a parting gift of a few pounds of metal rod, a stainless plate, and 6 titanium screws, thanks to my now-destroyed bike.

          But I lived, and TTAG gets to suffer my presence yet again! (SUCK ON IT, TROLLS! πŸ˜‰ )

          A Merry and safe holiday for the good people of TTAG… πŸ™‚

    • Shooting pigeons will either prove you’re an excellent shot or leave Ya shaking Yer head. They are one of the hardest of the flyers to hit. Good Luck and have a great day. To all Peace Be with You and your Loved Ones.

      • ratshot in a smoothbore 22 works on them. We used to shoot the pest in an uncles barn for him. He would pay us 10 cents for a bird or 25 cents for the squabs. Luckily he or our parents never went in the barn and saw us dangling in the rafters when we found a nest.

        • He never knew but he did not need to pay us. That was fun and we would have done it gladly for free.. These were tobacco curing barns and my cousin taught us how to roll cigars and we would smoke those nasty things. Sadly she is dead now. Breast cancer in her 30’s.

        • “These were tobacco curing barns and my cousin taught us how to roll cigars and we would smoke those nasty things.”

          Tobacco, eh? Or was it kinda like the ‘National Lampoon’ Vacation movie? πŸ™‚

          When I lived in southwest Oklahoma as a kid, I heard stories of farmers handing out free boxes of .22lr if the kids would shoot prairie dogs. Now, some pet stores are selling prairie dogs as pets…

        • In KY and WV it was pigeons and groundhogs. In CA it was jackrabbits. Farmers/ranchers would let you shoot all you wanted.

        • Ken, are you from N FL/S GA? Shade leaf tobacco is the outside leaf on a cigar. It was the cash crop around here when I was a kid. I worked from the field to the barn every summer from 12 to 16. $1.10 an hour.

        • He lived in Madison county way out in the sticks.. He had us up to help put up the poles for the shade help harvest and hang it. My cousin did not like shooting the birds so when we came up he wanted us to kill them as they crapped on the tobacco while it was being cured. I used to like the smell in those barns. Maybe the tobacco was better when aged but I remember those cigars we made left a bitter taste and were harsh. But hey we were cool. I remember being told being if you smoked one of those and spit on a grasshopper it would kill it. They knew were were doing it the breath had to give us away.

    • And to you, Deborah, and may every lint-licker DemoRat find a Covid virus to infect them in their stocking!

  2. A Merry Christmas, safe travels and a prosperous New Year to TTAG readers.

    (there wasn’t a case of ammo under our tree…there were two 2-pound kegs of Trail Boss. My spouse is amazing!)

        Sorry, both of her sisters are married to guys who compete in rifle / pistol matches and enjoy bow, center-fire rifle and dove / pheasant / quail hunting seasons (none of us are into duck / goose hunting).

  3. Isaiah 9
    New International Version
    9 [a]Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordanβ€”

    2 The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
    on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned.
    3 You have enlarged the nation
    and increased their joy;
    they rejoice before you
    as people rejoice at the harvest,
    as warriors rejoice
    when dividing the plunder.
    4 For as in the day of Midian’s defeat,
    you have shattered
    the yoke that burdens them,
    the bar across their shoulders,
    the rod of their oppressor.
    5 Every warrior’s boot used in battle
    and every garment rolled in blood
    will be destined for burning,
    will be fuel for the fire.
    6 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
    And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
    7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
    He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
    establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and forever.
    The zeal of the Lord Almighty
    will accomplish this.

  4. Merry Christmas everyone! Sorry about the day late. And a wonderful, Happy New Year in advance! I hope everyone had a healthy and happy holiday with loved ones!

  5. Hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a good one and at some point it was crystal as to why some of us take the time to remember the setting up of our one chance for immortality. I know there are a lot of peeps out there that believe Homer Simpson when he explained that it commemorates Santa Claus’s birthday.
