    No wonder Santa can deliver all those gifts on Christmas, he’s got a high-speed, low-drag tactical squad at his command!

    I’ve been checking this blog for nearly a year now I think, and I appreciate your work and your adherence to the credo “Firearms, Not Politics”.

    May Santa and his fireteam bring you many presents and no coal…or hot lead…in your stockings!

    Merry Christmas to you Steve. I don’t know what I’ll do without your blog for two weeks. Maybe actually go outside and do something. 😉

    • Yogsothoth, maybe try some shooting. I hear its fun 😉 Merry Christmas.

    Have a cool Yule Steve!

    And to all the other readers of the Firearm Blog, keep it safe and happy this Christmas especially if you are –

    Evacuating foreign nationals from the landing zone (picking up relatives from the airport)

    Securing valuable assets from the TRU (going to Toys R Us)

    Or conducting covert night time operations to avoid highly sensitive LP / OPs (doing ya Santa thing for the kids)

    Whatever you do or however you celebrate, have a great holiday!

  • Martn (M)

    This picture speaks volumes about the US Military’s camo programs and their development.

    Thanks for the blog, Steve. It’s the gift that keeps on givin’.

    Well Steve, thanks for the blog. It has been an important source of information about developments in the field of firearms technology.

    Martin (M): US camo programs? That’s weird, to me those look a lot like Finnish peacekeepers in Afghanistan (link confirms that the photo is taken there).

  • Enjoy your break and the holidays.

  • Aurelien

    Merry Christmas to all of you.

    Steve i’ll be thinking of you when i’ll do some rifle shooting in 2 days.

    To all, be safe on the roads. I don’t know how the conditions are elsewhere, but here it’s pretty much frozen hell. So stay frosty and don’t take chances, better be late than dead.

  • Andrew

    Have a good holiday and break Steve. Merry Christmas to you, your family, and the Firearm Blog community. Gonna miss the read on your break.

  • Jamie

    Cool pic. Being a resident of ND I love guns & snow pics.

  • Dakota

    Those aren’t Americans, that is Finnish camouflage and to further my point they are carrying Rk 62 assault rifles the standard issue combat rifle in Finland.

  • Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to you, Steve. May there be peace and happiness and a lot of guns and shooting in the years to come!

  • Rattlesnake

    Sako RK 95 TP, not RK62.

  • Sven

    Thanks Steve,

    Marry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. As a regular lurker I find your website informative and balanced. Enjoy your break and keep up and good work.

  • I’m absolutely sure, you will like it:
    RB-12, russian “anti-pump” shotgun. Was produced something about 50 of them.
    Guys joking – that when you shooting it – you will use only foul language. Like they do.
    If you have any question – mail me, i’ll try to translate.
