COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Governor Nikki Haley tweeted Thursday morning she received a gun for Christmas.

"Our family had a wonderful Christmas together!," posted Haley on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. "I must have been good Santa gave me a Beretta PX4 Storm."

The handgun is listed on the Beretta website for $575.

The company describes the gun as "well-suited for concealed carry yet perfectly at home in a duty holster. Its compact and controllable design accommodates plainclothes operations, home defense, or a day at the range … The 16 round capacity (15+1 in 9mm) provides for true combat effectiveness, while still remaining compact. Equipped with an accessory rail, new ambidextrous slide stop and new integral/retractable lanyard loop, the Px4 Compact is highly flexible and mission ready."

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