Title: What Did You Get For Christmas?
Post by: Big58cal on January 02, 2004, 01:17:52 AM
Hey, I need ideas for next year!  What did you all get?

The wife and I decided that she would get what she wanted and I would get what I wanted.  She got herself a little video/digital camera and a portable DVD player.  I got the .17 cal.  Since hers cost more than mine, she took me tonight and I got another computer chair :D   The old one was pretty much about ready to die!  It was down to a seat and one arm and that was it! :?

So what did you all get?  I need ideas for next Christmas! :D

Bigcal58, it sounds like you was really good all year!  Which .17 did you get? I got my .17 for an early XMAS present, too. We sure would not have wanted to wait until XMAS to shoot squirrels with them,huh? My  Savage .17 Heavy  with the checkered wood stock is sudden death, just like yours performs, I'm SURE! Wife got me an 18V cordless drill and two batteries with it, plus a bunch of Dremel tools, under the tree. I told her when I picked up the .17 I didn't want anything else, but you know how wives and Christmas shopping adds to!  :D

I got some really nice stuff - but nothing related to hunting.  Hmmm.... I wonder if they're trying to tell me something.   :wink:

Hey John, mine is the Marlin 17VS.  I got the laminated wood stock, heavy barrel, and stainless satin finish.  I put a Simmons Aetec 3.8 x 12 X 44 mm scope on it.  I got the Marlin because it's the only one that I know of that you can get an after-market trigger for.  The trigger on it is decent, but it is still a factory trigger.  It's got a little bit of creep to it, which I don't like.  Haven't had time to mess with getting the other trigger for it just yet though.

C.N., pretty nice! Well-l-l-l, the watch, good, and mixed woman reasons. huh? Hey, you tried those electric socks? They work good, improvements over the years have made them pretty good. I need them on stand during cold weather, and also in the duck blind. Gutpiles, you gotta have a serious talk with that gal! Maybe she didn't catch your hints. You let us talk to her before next Christmas! Heck, We will get you set up Goo-o-o-od! What color of new 4X4 truck you want, by the way? :!:  :!:  :!: She can get a second job to pay for it, by the way! :lol:  Will that work, or will she come and shoot us?
