Best Christmas Gifts 2013

I'm so thrilled to show you mine. Cheyenne Marie came home to her family on Christmas Eve!

My precious grand daughter came into the world two months early and weighed only 3 lbs. Today, a month later she has doubled her weight and is doing perfectly well after being in the hospital for over a month. I've been overwhelmed with emotion over the most perfect Christmas gift EVER! Here's our little princess, fast asleep...

Yours is better than mine by a long shot. There's no competition in my eyes.

My gift will be late. I get this for 16 days, but I don't get the first day until January 4th. Good things come to those who wait.

I received my best gift Christmas Eve (so far).
A 1942, all matching, Mauser made, Nazi marked, German P.08, also known as the Luger 1942 was the last year the Germans made this pistol before switching to the P-38. I finally pulled the trigger and bought me one.

Nice find pac. They are a true point and shoot pistol. Mrs B's father has her grandfather's Luger as well as his later Walther. They have been sitting in a box in the attic for years. Such a shame. Last time I saw them they had lost most of their blueing.

What a shame.
A lot of these (at least down here) have started to surface with the WWII veterans reaching their end. If you're lucky you can get one without it first reaching a dealer. Mrs B's father should do something with those.

And thanks. I hope to shoot it soon. At least a little.
Something more up your (Canadian) alley might be the Inglis Hi-Power I also have That was my birthday present

OMG You have an Inglis 9mm????
They are quite rare up here. I have an FN built Browning but would love to get my mitts on an original Inglis.
