Christkind ’08


KN: Nill-Grips on My Wadder

I don’t know how Christkind got into my gun safe last night after making the long trek from Germany (via Battleboro Vermont) — maybe Santa was there to supervise — but regardless, these new grips sure dress up my otherwise “functional” wad gun.

“The Christkind is a sprite-like child, usually depicted with blond hair and angelic wings. Martin Luther intended it to be a reference to the incarnation of Jesus as an infant. It is presumed by some to be so, but seems to be rooted in the Alsatian-born myth of a child bringing gifts to the baby Jesus.”

On the plane home from Dallas a week ago, I sat two rows in front of someone with a bad cough and apparently I’ve brought their cold home for the Holidays. Because of that and the fact that it’s rainy and chilly in Phoenix on Christmas Day, live-fire with the new grips will have to wait.

Wonder how many Xs were included?

  1. Glad to see Santa stopped by. It’s amazing what a little bit of magic dust can do; the ol’ boy can go down chimneys, through pet doors and into gun vaults.

    About a week and a half ago, Ed M finally released my wadgun from jail. And with childlike haste, ordered-up a set of Nill grips. Since the rake is at a different angle, I never gave thought about ordering a shorter trigger.

    If they’re anything, they’re certainly very cool.
