Lionhart, I remember you going outside to take that picture. I wish I had known I would have said howdy. I was sitting there helping pack up the table that day. I think it was Sunday.

Now I have a face to put with a very nice guy I keep talking to over the phone, I think Mr. Richardson gets more of my "Disposable" income than the better half.

Merry Christmas to you all, and may you find that 10lb box under the tree or ariving at your FFL a couple of days later.

Well I’m kicking in a bit late in the post but it’s still pre-Christmas …

Good time of year to reflect on many things… Friends, family, bullets …

Can’t say enough about everyone on the boards; all the help, information and support extended. Frank and Nick; don’t know where a lot of us would be without this forum. Many, many thanks.

I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. Take a minute in your own way and remember what the season is really all about, I know I have need to.

(Mike, let’s start looking for those Wal-Mart after Christmas fruitcake sales, if, ya know what I mean?)

All the best,

CJR

I want to wish everyone a very Happy and Safe Christmas and New year. I hope Santa will bring you all everything you want. Frank and Nick, thanks for this excellent forum. I have learned so much since I came here and joined the Thompson ranks (well, the SA ranks).

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

HAPPY FESTIVUS TO YOU, CHRIS!

And now, the feats of Strength! (Seinfeld)


Merry Christmas to all. Does it make anyone wonder that some states ban full auto weapons but allow fruitcakes? One would think it would violate some federal law to ship them interstate through the mail.

While I too would enjoy blasting a fruitcake, I would caution everyone to look out for richochets. Some of these cakes have been passed on from year to year and may, by now, be bullet proof.



Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!

God rest ye merry, Gentlemen!

Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, everyone! I've been on this board for a few months now, "lurking" mostly, and soaking up a tremendous amount of information and moral support from you guys. Thanks again to everybody, and particularly to Nick, the moderators, and other volunteers who keep this sight going.
