    I got this awhile back and thought I'd share it.

    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 Nosler's 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 New York, from Clinton's cavorting!

    I eased off the safety, to press-check my auto

    With 230 hardball I'd knock em all blotto.

    Were these rogue Federal Agents?

    Or a staggering Ted Kennedy in bad need of vino?

    My question was answered with a knock, and some sneezing,

    "It's Santa, you moron, lemme in there I'm freezing"!

    I flipped off the deadbolt and threw the door wide,

    To find St. Nick a shivering, Rudolph by his side

    He eyeballed my Thompson, with a nod of approval

    "You're all set", he said "for dirtball removal".

    "But this is no raid, we're 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.

    "It's okay," he assured me, with a hint of frustration.

    "I'm enrolled in the National Rifle Association".

    He showed me his card, was a Life Member rating

    "I've had this since me and the missus were dating!"

    "And you see, ole buddy, I've gotten real nervous

    Since Hillary was elected, with a promise to serve us".

    So henceforth as I'm out there, my presents a'stackin,

    "I want to assure you, I'm legally packin".

    And my gift for you this year should give you a hoot

    I've told the DNC to give Kerry and Hillary the boot!

    May you all have a great Christmas and I hope you folks get the best gift of all. Great times with family and friends.

    Take care Be safe Poacher.
