Remember, ammunition makes a great stocking stuffer



This is a holiday classic.

Good one!

I disagree. Ammo weighs too much and will smoosh chocolates and oranges (remember getting oranges in your stocking? Oranges used to be a Christmas tradition.) Ammo is better given as an actual gift below the tree.

Plus, if one is traditional, do you really want ammo hanging anywhere near the fireplace so Clutzy Uncle Bob or the cats can potentially knock the stockings into the fire?

And it's really hard to fit a drum of 5.56 in a standard stocking...

Heh...

Beans, you sound a little grinchy. ;-)

Ted, not grinchy, but the Demon Murphy is strong in me. Since I've set old time wheel mice on fire just by having them near me, I try to never underestimate what can happen.

Plus, I reiterate, there's no stocking I've ever seen that can hold a 55 gallon drum of 5.56...

Although I have to say that since ammo prices have come down and availability seems, well, normal that I don't much give ammo as gifts anymore.

Normally $4,400, down to $3,400 with mail in rebate. Dang, where can I sell a kidney?

A couple years ago I saw one of those drums of 5.56 "on sale" for $6,000 in a nearby store... there is a reason I don't buy much there; too expensive!

I wish I could buy the toys shown in that video!
