MERRY CHRISTMAS! — 44 Comments

  1. Merry Christmas to you and the “PrEditor” as well, and a blessed New Year. Thanks for all you do to preserve the 2nd Amendment.

  2. Mas,

    Thank you so much for your blog, and allowing us to comment on it. I am pretty low-tech, want to have a small digital footprint, and want to use computers as little as possible. However, I find blogs like yours, and, to be very educational. I also own “In the Gravest Extreme” of course.

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and best wishes to you and yours in the new year! And that goes for everyone who reads this!

  3. Mass, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year, to you, the Evil Princess, and all of your readers as well.

    Hope each, and everyone of you all get weapon, Electronic toy, or gadget, you have been coveting all year now!

  4. Merry Christmas to you and you family, Mr. Ayoob! Thank you for what you do and for your service! God Bless you and your Princess!

  5. As I reflect on God’s love, I stand in awe of His plan for the salvation of this world, His creation. Sending His only begotten Son, who showed us the way we should live our lives, taught us God’s ways, died the death we deserve for our sinful ways, and rose from the grave, showing His victory over Satan and his followers.

    Tomorrow I will celebrate the birth of that Son, Jesus, the Christ. I will praise God the Father for His sacrificial love for someone as lowly as me.

    I will also thank Him for y’all, my good friends. Thank you Mas, for your imparting your knowledge to all of us.

    Thanks to all of you for your enlightening comments. It’s an education.

    I wish you all a safe, happy, and Merry Christmas!

  6. Thank You, Merry Christmas!

  9. Mas , Merry Christmas to you and your family and THANK YOU for your blog and trying to educate everyone on our rights and right way to handle some very difficult situations that may arise in our daily lives.

  10. A Merry Christmas to you, Mas, and your spousal unit and your entire extended family, as well as to all the folks who read and post here.

  11. From a student in your MAG-40 class in Bonnfield, IL on Oct 1st – 4th.
    Merry Christmas to you and your Princess.
    Hope everyone’s Holliday is a happy, healthy and a safe one.
    May everyone get all the goodies and toys you’d ever want.

    Just make sure if anyone ask you about Arsenal, be sure tell them that sadly you lost them all in a boating accident.

  12. Thanks Mas…We very much appreciate your contribution to the gun community. Thanks for all your contributions over the years to educate us.

    Merry Christmas to you, the evil princes and the rest of the family.

    May you find a nice new gun under the tree Christmas morning.

  13. May this Christmas remind us it’s not about commercialism, but about the birth of our Saviour who would conquer death through His resurrection.

    And, hope that the new year will bring us further training to make our hands strong for war and yet never see a need for that strength, though some ultimately will. And God bless them.

    Mas thanks for your continued posts and work in the education of self-preservation.

  14. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year. God Bless!

  15. Merry Christmas to the two of you, too, Mas!

    I think the regular e-mail I look most forward to is the notification of a new entry on your blog. It’s always entertaining and informative to read what you write, whether in the periodicals, the books you write, or here on this blog.

    Best wishes,

  16. From a fellow Geezer, may this holiday season be filled with love, joy & peace for both of you! Mas, you can drop the Evil part for your Princess; the word is out! Thanks to you both for sharing your knowledge and being so generous with your time helping so many to be better prepared for this dangerous world. I always enjoy your articles & share them with friends & family.

  17. I purchased my first handgun about seven years ago. I did not think the minimum required CPL class would be enough for me so I looked for a class where I could learn a little more. I found a class (LFI-I) offered by a guy that I had never heard of (you) that was far more expensive than anything else offered. However when I looked at what the course covered I realized that it was what I was looking for. By sheer luck (providence?) the course was offered in Augusta MI, not far from my home. The kicker came from my wife, who at the time was not a shooter. She said “You paid over $750 for that Smith&Wesson. You should pay at least that much to learn how and when to use it”. (Did I marry well or what?)

    Fast forward to today. My wife and I go out shooting together on a regular basis. I compete in IDPA and recently taught an Intro to IDPA class for the student Firearms Club at a college where I am a professor. For Christmas I took her Glock 19 to the local gunsmith and got it coated in pink camo. I just gave it to her a few minutes ago and she loves it.

    One of the most rewarding things for me as a teacher is when I hear from one of “my kids” who has gone on to a successful career. I hope this note conveys that same feeling to you. I have taken some excellent firearms related classes and in retrospect your class set the standard. I hope to have the good fortune to attend another of your classes in the future; perhaps with my wife.

    Merry Christmas, Mas to you and yours.

  18. Merry Christmas Mas! Look forward to seeing you at the Tac Conference in Memphis in March.

  19. Thanks to all for sharing.
    Mousegun Mike, I’m glad you were able to take that ball and run with it!

  20. Mas,

    Merry Christmas to you and EP. Our local indoor range was filled with Christmas Eve shooters, including one little guy who looked to be about eight years old… donned in a Santa hat… shooting a .22 rifle. Judging by the look on his father’s face I’m guessing it was an early Christmas present. Then, there’s a good friend of mine who bought his two boys their first “black” gun this Christmas… an M&P 15 .22. Warms the heart.

    Thanks for doing more than your fair share over the years to fight for our Second Amendment rights and to keep us “good guys” safe out there!

  21. Well I hope everyone here enjoyed a Happy Christmas and is now looking forward to a Peaceful & Prosperous 2016.

  22. And to you and the rest of the contributors and those that just lurk, read and learn.

    My middle son gave me great gift. Information about a new range in his city that will allow you the use (for a fee of course) of a full auto Thompson or even a WWII issue BAR, among other weapons. THAT is on my list for a visit in the very near future. My dad was a life long Browning enthusiast having been introduced to the genius of John Browning through the BAR during his WWII service. I heard a lot about that weapon and now I get the chance to experience it first hand.

  23. Mas & Gail – Merry Christmas and I wish you a very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!

    Many thanks for the time you have taken with me. The joy and gratitude for family of the Christmas season is with me every day having the privilege to continue training with you.

    BTW…speaking of Aftermath…got any good suggestions after a 4 day self imposed house-arrest preparing for The Feast…

  24. I was not able to read this forum until today and want to wish all belated Christmas wishes. Would that it be possible – celebrating the birthday of the Savior would awaken the humanity that is in all of us. God save us all!

    Dennis – I have never met you, but I so appreciate your postings here – they are heartfelt and always “get” me. Thank you.
