When I got married a few years ago, we didnt have much. But I bought one thing at a time.....slowly as I was able to afford weapons and gear.
I bought every rifle I would ever need. Now, I am upgrading those rifles.....from a really good AK47 to a really awesome AR15.
Just because you have very little, doesnt mean you always will have crap. Start off slow, and build on top of what you have.

I never would have thought I would have the stuff I got today.

I have champagne tastes just like everybody else, but I cant afford beer tastes this month! I guess I have to settle for a soda budget ....maybe even water for too long

I'm in the exact same boat, but with the way the world's turning, I hope everyday I don't lose what took me so long to get.

Living within ones paycheck is not a bad thing and overtime your check should grow.

A lot of folks think you have to have certain stuff to get by. It takes very little to actually get by.

It takes a bit more to get by comfortably.

If starting over an ak that is reliable would be cheap and easy to find and a 6 shot 357 mag revolver would be similar. And until you get some other stuff caught up that would be good enough to get things done that need to be done.

Quality firearms are always a good investment...

Good point!!!

I got married back in 2006 and had a few (and I mean a few) Mini-14's, five Ishapore .308's, one Polytec M-14 and a few (7) NHM-90's. Well my wife is a southpaw and could not shoot the Mini-14 so I decided to change the families primary platform..

I sold most right after the 2008 election (prices were high) and was able to save and buy much better quality rifles. I was able to sell my Ak's for the same price as what I ended up paiding for my M&P15's..

OP, just take your time, you will get there!!! And YES it does feel good to update!!!!!!

Our goal is actually to live off one income and save or invest the rest. Here lately we bought a house and havent really saved a lot
My goal in the next few months is to buy some ammo and try to get 6 months income back in the bank, we want to get started off good. We put 20% down on a home, in no debt (except now mortgage.) We are trying to lay the groundwork where we dont have to work so hard in the future. If both of us got fired from work and got minimum wage jobs, we can pay the bills. Thats how I want it. We dont live paycheck to paycheck, but we are frugal and not spend all our money. Shoot, I never would have thought I would have spent the money I have on firearms. Especially this last upgrade!
I just wanted to write to others and encourage them that sure money is tight, but you can work your way up to something you really wanted.
