One of those 1903s is going to be my gunnie Christmas present!

Wow. Just wow. I want a Christmas like that. Even ONE day.

Dear santa, I've been a good boy... for the most part...for me...I've been a little better than normal for me this year.

Would you please double-check that Mister Browning is indeed going to drop off those 1903s for me?

As I have been pretty bad by many peoples' standards, will you drop off my coal in the form of black powder to help me feed the 1887s?

This makes me feel all festive!

You know...when I was singing this in my head, I realized that FN sounds just like "effin'" if you don't slow down an ennunciate clearly. I wonder if anyone's ever pointed that out to them.

I think it would go better with numbers corresponding to their days: eleven 1911, ten FN-10, five Auto-5, three 1903, etc. With as prolific as JMB was, I am sure you could match a firearm by number with each day.

So what would the Visa bill look like after "The Twelve Days of Gunnie Christmas"?

Tirno said...

Now, what we need is a buncha gunnies, each of which owns one of these firearms, to take a short video of themselves: singing that short part of the song while holding the appropriate article; shooting that firearm; and singing FIIIIIIVE NINETEEN ELEVENS!

Put all those clips together, and that's YouTube gold right there.

Me and my 1911 are up for it.

Huh. I actually *have* five 1911s...

Great job!

What about the .22 Auto rifle?

Ancient Woodsman said...

That was FRICKIN' AWESOME!! Hard to read too far without starting to sing it.

Now just to get the Vienna Boy's Choir to do this.

You are the man. Merry Christmas.

I sang it. Mostly anyway. Video over at my place.
