    No shinola! I got mine a 1974 Model 94 in .30-.30. Also got her a cute little bracelet, but the Winchester just stole her heart.

    I got my wife a Galco Metropolitan gun purse and a Dallas Cowboys Jersey.

    I got my bride a new broom,
    couple of pots & pans,
    can opener,
    some cleaning supplies.
    You know, the stuff she can really use, and use well.

    Seriously,
    she's getting a 230 lumen Ultra Fire
    tix to a Hurricanes Game
    magazines for her M&P40c
    folding knife
    DVD's
    CD's
    wool hat
    and new furniture for the bonus room.

    Not too much (some clothes mostly). Times are tough this year.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I got my wife a 40" Flat Screen HDTV.

    Before anyone says I got it for me, let me just say that we don't watch a lot of TV.

    My wife wanted it for the same reason she wanted Direct TV: so she can watch as many football games as she can!!

    No kidding. As big a football fan as I am, she watches more than I do. She goes through withdrawal when football season is over.

    . . . and she practices with her Spyderco Delica and likes to shoot my guns, too. She's a keeper!!!

    Well, we found out a few weeks ago that we are pregnant(our first), so I got her a weekend spa package that has prenatal massages and a pregnancy full body pillow. She also got roses and a trip to her favorite restaurant.

    I'm pretty sure I got an AK and a GPS system for the car.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I guess, except that I picked out this vacuum cleaner myself. Evidently she had looked at the checking account online and she met me in the driveway when I got home and said "I have a question for you" in a very perturbed tone. I guess it didn't help that I started laughing.

    Well, our water heater (which we've had problems with for a long time) went out last Thursday night. Installed a new 50 gallon (with no leaks first time)Saturday. What a difference ! Wife is so happy with abundant hot (!) water that she said we could put a red ribbon on it and call it good.

    And, yes, I didn't forget the stocking stuffers.

    I got my lady a house. We close on the 29th. Buying a house around Christmas sure has made it a crazy time of year.

    At first I was thinking Geckomobiles...
