We certainly hope you found some ballistic baubles in your stocking or under the tree this morning. So whether it was accessories, optics, magazines, ammo, or maybe even a new shootin’ iron, share. Tell us what you got for Christmas.

  1. Mantis laser dry fire training setup, ‘To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak the Truth’ by Jeff Cooper, Widow Jane 10yr bourbon, box of 5.56, and some smaller stuff. No coal this year.

  2. Ruger American Go Wild, savage 93 FV .22 mag, Vortex Sonora, CZ 527 .22 Horhet, a ton of ammo!! Merry Christmas to all and God bless!

  3. Big Christmas around here. House full of relatives and kids, our turn to host Christmas this year. I got a bunch a stuff, but for gun related…

    Leupold Deltapoint Pro Red Dot Sight

    Ghost Firearms 9mm upper with bcg

    Sig P320

    Pelixan V730 tactical rifle case

    A couple Anderson lowers.

    Monstrum G3 1-6×24 FFP scope

    Rothco concealed carry soft shell tactical jacket

    Bunch of magazines

    • “No, but God was.”

      A man who knows his priorities… 🙂

  4. Mossberg 940 JM on the way from KY gun co. $866.01 including Ky state tax

    This will be my first 4473 since 2019. I’ve been doing what I can on my end of supply and demand to help out all the first time gun owners.

  5. I like this thread. A good point from above: we shouldn’t require TTAG to be the sole reviewers. We’ve got some good commenters here. We should each send TTAG a quick review of whatever we’ve gotten after a good test period, whether it be ammo, accessories, scopes, parts or guns. Want to review your Glock 19? Do it! Your Taurus GC2? 1 review from this community probably beats 100 reviews from the various websites.
    I’d appreciate a short review about your experiences with something.

    • “A good point from above: we shouldn’t require TTAG to be the sole reviewers.”

      It isn’t.

      Matter of fact, the folks keeping TTAG running were originally commenters and reviewers from Dan Z. on down. Nick Leghorn, Jeremy S. (who is reputedly known to talk in class today), and a bunch of others.

      TTAG will happily publish a review if you write one up and submit it…

  6. Merry Christmas To All…Well call me as proud Second Hand Rose because a close friend who was moving gave us a king size double pillow top mattress for Christmas. They used it one night and into storage it went, it is as close to new as new can get and it cost them $2500.00. They knew we had a king size so we were selected and they even delivered it. It’s a monster mattress to move around and now stands in the hallway.
    There are never ending projects going on here…Wednesday night the dryer went out so Thursday it came apart and the two sensors on the heater box were replaced, timing could not have been better because Friday the supply house was closed. If it breaks around here we fix it which is why we stay away from complicated vehicles and equipment we may not be able to fix. The extra money saved is mostly shooting related.
    Since firearms are part of our daily lives during the holidays attention goes to other things like the great people we are very blessed to have in our lives.

    • Guessing you aren’t using it to clear rooms or in a Broken Arrow holding off hordes of slopes/ragheads position….probably more for long range precision plinking/hunting, so….consider building it as a straight pull bolt action using a side charge BCG and ON-OFF gas block. OFF = bolt action’ ON = semi. Build as a bolt only version and eliminate the gas block (buy a custom barrel sans gas port), gas tube, buffer, buffer spring, ….. for maximum accuracy, reduced weight, and elimination of the action noise/movement.

  7. A little gunsmithing gear, P220 10 round mag, SKS book, gift card to my local pew palace, and some model kits for my OTHER hobby, plus a vast array of treats and a VERY cool picture my daughter painted. Merry Christmas!

    • Winchester stopped producing the Black Talon round in 2000, not 20 years ago.

      The “Ranger SXT” sold by Winchester is very similar to the Black Talon but without the black Lubalox coating on the bullet. There are some differences in the bullet though but its close enough to the Talon.

      I still have about 10,000 rounds of the Black Talon

  8. A few weeks back I got an early present, a Berretta A400 12ga and 300 shells. Today it was complemented by snap caps, a bore snake and gift cert for 3 rounds of sporting clays.

  9. Not even Santa could find any .38 special or .30-30 this year, but I did get a little bit of something to feed the other firearms, so the ammo-under-the-tree tradition continues.

    A spread of holiday treats and food on the table — Bourbon and scotch (for me’n the son), Dry Fly vodka (for the wife) and sparkling sugarplum beverage (for the daughter, still under 21). Panettone, nuts, cookies, lots of chocolate, and those old-fashioned hard candies your grandma always used to have in a dish on the coffee table.

    Last night the daughter ran a Christmas Special one-shot for our Madoka Magica tabletop RPG campaign, and we had a ton of fun saving Christmas with anime magic and the power of friendship.

    Noon today, everyone else is still asleep. For the first time in this little family’s history, father is the first one up, waiting for everybody else to wake up so we can open what’s under the tree. I restored a 1957 Remington Quiet-Riter typewriter for the daughter, so she can take it back to college and impress her friends with it. Can’t wait for her to see it.

  10. Taurus tx22 so I would leave the wife’s alone. Some more .223 for the stash and some fishing stuff. Will relay how the tx works out. Her’s runs pretty good, a few hiccups but seems ammo related when it happens, typical .22 Merry Christmas everyone!!

  11. Sometimes the best gifts can be an experience. With all the kids out of school and sports now is a fine time to offer to let them join you for an afternoon shooting cans. Be “THAT Uncle!” in some kids life who gave them a formative experience and showed that you knew they could be trusted with great responsibility.

  12. Ruger LCP Max, Glock 19, case of Eagle Eye 6.5, Wheeler fat wrench (lost my other one), Scotch, scotch glasses (more the A part of ATF), and an Olight tac pen.

    The best gift is salvation, but getting guns is still great!

  13. BROWNING 1911 THREADED BARREL . ENJOY THE WEAPON . THANKS SANTA .
    HOWEVER TALK WITH THE ELVES THE MAGAZINE BASE CAN NOT BE TAKEN DOWN , ACT OF GOD ,
    CHEAP MAGAZINE BUTTON . SHAME SHAME .

    BEWARE , BEWARE OF BOBCAT 21A BERETTA COVERT , HINGE AREA BREAKS , NEED FULL STEEL FRAME

    STILL HAVE FAIR HEALTH , AND MAKE THE RANGE , SO MERRY CHRISTMAS .
    THANK THE LORD AND JESUS FOR WHAT GIVEN AND WHAT NOT GIVEN . NO VIRUS .

    MAY THE BLESSINGS IN LIFE ALWAYS BE IN Y’ALLS FAVOR . AMEN

  14. My son dropped off a case of 7.62 ammo, Eldest grandson got his first single shot .22 and youngest got his first air rifle/BB gun. Daisy lever action. Same as the Red Ryder without the branding. Even spent a couple hours with the boys teaching basic safety and proper handling.
    Was very happy to get the 7.62 jacketed soft point. Damn hard to find around here. He came down from Georgia.

    • oldmaninAL,

      Nice job scoring that 7.62 ammo, especially in jacketed soft point bullets–that is a serious manstopper. By the way, was it 7.62x39mm or 7.62x51mm NATO ???

  15. Santa did not give me any firearms, ammunition, nor firearm accessories.

    Earlier in the week, I purchased a Heritage Rough Rider single-action revolver chambered in .22 LR on sale for $115. I already have two of them so I am going to give it to a cousin, niece, or nephew as a gift. (I have not yet decide which one.)

    And some of my family simply gave me money for Christmas. I am thinking about how I might spend that on a new firearm or firearm accessory such as a suppressor!

  16. I got the wife a Henry side loading case hardened walnut 357 lever octagon that I had a gunsmith chop down to 16″ and threaded. Probably the only one of its kind…for now. Also decided to dive into black powder with an 1860 Army. She got me a Vickers book of WW2 German guns with plenty of coffe table sized gun pron images.
