COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Santa was apparently right on target for Christmas for South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

Haley posted on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on Thursday a picture of the Beretta PX4 Storm she got as a present, saying she must have been good to have received such a nice present from Santa Claus.

Haley's spokesman confirmed that the gift was from Haley's husband and that she cannot wait to get on the range and fire the pistol.

The governor is no stranger to firearms. She has a concealed weapons permit, and she got plenty of attention in July when her office posted a video of her firing a machine gun while touring a gun manufacturer in Columbia.
