Christmas NRA style!

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, cold, dark and foreboding,
As I sat at the workbench, quite busy reloading,
The empties from autumn were polished so clear,
For primers and powder, and bullets from Speer.
And Sierra boat-tails, and Noslers Partitions
(My bench aint no place for brand name omissions!)
All sat in their boxes, right next to the press,
With dies from Midway, and RCBS.
When all of a sudden there came such a jolt,
I grabbed for my Mossberg, and whipped out my Colt.
As I spilled Hodgdon's powder all over the shelf,
I scrambled for cover, just to protect myself
From up on the rooftop, came hoofbeats and snorting,
Like the noise out of Lil Rock, from Clintons cavorting!
I eased off the safety, to press-check my auto
With 230-hardball, Id knock em all blotto.
Were these rogue federal agents, sent by Schumer and Reno?
Or a staggering Ted Kennedy, in bad need of vino?
My question was answered with a knock, and some sneezing,
"Its Santa, you moron, lemme in there, I'm freezing!"
I flipped off the dead-bolt and threw the door wide,
To find St. Nick a'shivering, Rudolph by his side
He eyeballed my Thompson, with a nod of approval
"Youre all set," he said, "for dirtball removal."
"But this is no raid, were not here to harm you
Or persecute, prosecute, or even disarm you."
Instead, said dear Santa, he needed to borrow
My .357, 'till day after tomorrow.
"Its okay," he assured me, with a hint of frustration.
"Im enrolled in the National Rifle Association."
He showed me his card, 'twas a Life Member rating
"Ive had this since me and the missus were dating!"
"And you see, ol' buddy, Ive gotten real nervous
Since Hillary was elected, with a promise to serve us."
So henceforth as Im out there, my presents a'stackin'
"I want to assure you, Im legally packin'."
"And my gift for you this year, should give you a hoot
"Ive told the Supreme Court to give Brady the boot!
"Now, Rudy and I must be on our way."
He said, as he climbed back on the seat of his sleigh.
With the reins in his hand, and my Smith in his pocket
He jingled the sleighbells and was off like a rocket.
With a pair of speedloaders, and ammo to spare
I knew hed be safe, he was loaded for bear.
As he faded from view,
I could still hear him calling,
"From DC, where 'PC' is already falling,
"To bad guys in LA, Detroit and Atlanta:
"Im licensed to carry. Dont be messin' with Santa!"

Re: Christmas NRA style!

That was great. It does seem that Jeep people are also gun people. Now I have a small problem with that. My wife bought me an Armalite AR-50 for christmas and with 50BMG rounds going at $1.50 a pop for surplus I won't be able to buy as many jeep parts as I'd like. Oh well, another habit to support. All isn't lost though, I did see a large box from 4WD Hardware go under the tree. Merry Christmas everybody!

Man that's a good post. Reminds, me, almost time to buy another pistol. Looking for something in the 380 category, like a Walther, easy to conceal (legally) and carry. Then again, my brother's HK USP .45 is a damn nice pistol, amazingly accurate.

Re: Christmas NRA style!

Gary, you are already in Ky.
Go to the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot.
They have it twice a year, and buy some "Sunday" ammo.
I can get .50 BMG for $1 to $1.10 a round on Sunday afternoon, 'cause no one wants to load it up and pack it home.

Boy, you think this post isn't going to light up the ATF 'Snoop' stations!
With them looking for key words like .50 BMG and Machine Gun....
All I need to have them kicking the door in is to mention fertilizer, diesel fuel and Rider trucks!!

Here they are now!!

Merry Christmas!!

Re: Christmas NRA style!

Hey Team Rush, I went to Knob Creek in October and can't wait until April 6,7,8th. I live about 3 hours away. I usually go on friday, less of a crowd, but I think I'll have to try sunday this time around. I got some good prices on 5.56, 30-06, and 45acp. For people who haven't been, Machineguns, flamethrowers, cannons, dynamite...God, ain't Kentucky great! Maybe I'll see you there.
