  • How was Christmas?

    All the kids were home this year, possibly the last time for a while as they are all headed in different directions in their lives. It was a great Christmas for the family. No drama, as a couple of in-laws were specifically excluded.

    Did anyone get anything gun related for Christmas?

    My kids gave me a HoloSun HS403GL red dot sight and some different sized range ammo bags.

    That is a NICE looking bunch of meat!

    I can still find a use for my thumb, even though it no longer has a hole to finger.

    I could have been enjoying his nuts.

      My daughter and my brother came over for food and adult beverages, otherwise just another day in the life.

      Didn't get any gun stuff but I did buy myself some nice new riding gear.

      I joined a support group to help me deal with my social anxiety but I just can't seem to work up the nerve to go to a meeting......

        The new Klim Carlsbad jacket, Scorpion EXO helmet, and Alpinestars Corozal off-road boots.

        I've got a Klim Latitude but it's a bit too big for me now (know anybody looking for a barely used XXL?) and the Alpinestars touring boots are nice but wanted something with some real support for my occasional attempts at pretending a 600lb pig is a dirt bike.

        It seems that the case neck gets thin after being stretched a number of times like in a Wylde chamber
        Perhaps Meke has some input here

      Christmas, as always, was exhausting. My wife's parents are divorced, so we have a minimum of 4 Christmases every year; one with each of the grandparents, and one at home by ourselves. Needless to say, I don't look forward to Christmas much anymore.

      Closest to gun stuff I got was a gun mount for my "GoPro".

        Iโ€™m happy itโ€™s over. My wife did get me a rifle bag I wanted. Also some warm clothes. My daughter got me a Pew Pew Pew shirt.

          I got 2500 LC .223 cases. That was the only shooting related gift. I ended up getting a small camera drone suitable for indoor flying from my parents. The in-laws got me a larger outdoor camera drone. Both are way nicer than the cheap little quadcopters I have been playing with for the past couple years, but neither are so nice I'll be afraid to fly it for fear of wrecking. I have zero interest in one of 4 figure camera drones. They take beautiful photos and videos, but I'd be sick to my stomach if I ever crashed one.

            So you think my new barrel will be easier on the brass than my old barrel?
