    Best Christmas Present Ever!

    Okay, other than an actual gun (or two, in case my wife reads this thread - I know, I know, fat chance), what is the best gun-related Christmas present you ever received?

    Book? Video? Accessories? Ammo? Certificate to training?

    I gave my wife a certificate for her CC class and she completed it and received her permit last year (after many, many years of coaxing). Even though I gave her the certificate, I still think it ended up being one of the best gifts that I ever received.

    I got a 40 some odd piece cleaning kit that I use every time I shoot now. It's great!

    No more using the old lunchbox (50's model) with Penzoil to clean my pretties.

    Have to be my Fort Knox gun safe that I got about 10 years ago. So nice not to ever have to worry about my collection while I'm away. Oh, and those Reese Christmas Trees they have this time of year... I do LOVE my chocolate!

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    "Permission"...to buy another gun?

    Actually, just a couple of weeks ago, my wife suggested I buy some 'extra' ammo...I assume it had Christmas intentions attached...fine with me. I got tons...

    My daughter actually tried very hard to find a particular holster that I was wanting. She didn't end up being able to find & get it, but I found out that she worked very hard in her attempt.

    That she tried so hard to get it, meant a lot to me.
