OK, so whatcha get for Christmas?

Postby Hoot » Mon Dec 25, 2017 8:49 pm

I got me a factory refurbished Gamo Bone Hunter air rifle to keep in practice during the sub-zero months. (10 yd range in basement) Looked brand new in the box. Already having fun with that! The Budget got me a pair of new sneakers with the wide lasts for my wide feet, 4) CarHartt tee shirts with the pocket and 3) pair of sweats. I wear a uniform 5 days a week. After hours and on weekends I look like the guy at the top of the freeway exit. My Daughter and her Husband got me a tin of H&N "Crow Magnum" pellets, 2) 40-count packs of Duracell AA batteries, so that I don't have to keep stealing them from work. Thank goodness they are rated for 10 years in storage. They also got me a pair of Bluetooth wireless ear buds for my daily, evening walk. No more waiving at a passing neighbor and yanking one of my corded ones out. Lastly, my wife surprised me with a $100 Harbor Freight gift card. Quite a fruitful Christmas.

How about you?

My mom has dementia real bad so I don’t want to talk about what mom actually bought me. But she did tell me to buy myself a good gift so I bought myself a Fisher Space Pen and Star Trek the complete Original TV series. (1960s-1970s).

i got some tools to replace my aging bosch 12v stuff. i probably could have gotten away with just a new set of batteries, but my old set has had a pretty rough 5 or 6 years, so some fresh motors are going to feel awfully nice to go with a fresh set of batteries.


my cool present - the family got me a couple nice cow horns to make into drinking horns. just need to be sealed, they wernt sure what finish to have put on the (paraffin, etc) came with a nice leather sling with my name engraved into it.

and somehow my brother managed to get one of those mini Super Nintendo retro systems with all the games loaded on it. i was pretty tickled about that - however i'm probably gonna end up with carpel tunnel for the next month playing mario kart, yoshi's island and super mario world lol

Those pens are way cool! Sorry about your mom. I went through that 10 years ago with my mom before she passed from it. I pray that I got my dad's genes on that one.

A much needed new trail cam since I had a couple of ash trees come down on two of mine this fall, and a third just quit after 7 years.

Felt 21 again so we had a early xmas this past August.

Well my family got me a couple Carhartt work jackets, $100 gas card, Husky tool bag/box.....I was tired of carrying my tools in a 5gal. bucket. The mail lady just delivered a First Gen 18" TC Katahdin barrel in 450 Marlin w/56 loaded rounds and 20 empty cases. Pretty good Christmas I'm thinking!
