Probably been asked before but I cant find it, Although I spend a good amount of money on my gun collection my other money pit seems to be competing for first place. Here is a picture, I'll be glad when it's done. So, what do you put off a gun purchase for??? [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/pf44c9dc5b1b3cd777522e46969b4d88c/fe5e1ee4.jpg[/img]

Stupid little things called "Bills" for things that I thought I "needed" a long time ago.

Since I have discovered the NFA world all of my money that doesn't go to bills either goes to guns and ammo or to my wife to keep her happy when I buy more guns and ammo...... Michael

Food, fuel, housing, transportation, and taxes. If I didn't have all those bills to pay, I could have some really nice shooters. [>Q]

A weakness for military binoculars. Found a pair of Fujinon M22's on Ebay week before last. Snapped them up for $500.

Everything else in life. Ex, daughter, car, computer, rent, bills, etc. I really don't have much of a life when all is said and done. But, unfortuatly, I have more life than I have money. In best Cartman voice, "That sucks."

Vet bills. Surgery cancelled my order for my Bushy DCM. Post operative care cancelled my order for my Thompson Contender. Thank god, I still have my job, unlike so many others here.

As a matter of fact, she has the same "habits" as me.

Food! If I could make myself eat cheese sandwiches for two meals a day rather than just one, I would have about an extra $3 per day. That doesn't sound like much, but $3 * 365 is almost $1100 per year! I can buy a lot of ammo with that! At $8 per 550 for 22LR, that's 75,000 rounds! I guess the worst thing competing for my gun/ammo money is gun accessories! $5 for a sling, $6 for CLP, $10 for cleaning patches, $10 hollow-ground screwdriver, $15 for a case, $20 nice cleaning rod, $35 spare pin & spring set, $20 punch set, $? magazines, etc., etc. really adds-up! I keep-up with every single penny I spend, and I've spent more on junk to go with and clean my guns that I've actually spent on guns (a Marlin 22LR rifle & 1/4 of a home-built Oly). Everything gun-related seems to be expensive!

Link Posted: 7/8/2001 4:03:16 PM EDT
Everything! Basically starting over again and am now back to buying a fixer upper , getting a reliable vehicle etc. Was pretty angry about it for a while, but am actually enjoying it all again. I was lucky, a great lady found me, and decided to keep me. She has kids, they keep things interesting, and I don't have time to dwell on the negative. Thank God I built up and kept, a pretty fair collection beforehand. For my firearms, I am in the "I don't really need anything else" stage and am only on the prowl for a good deal or something very interesting.

Damn, you guys, I've got all those bills and misc. expenses also, A House, three expensive kids, a wife that CANT save money. But life is what you make it. so, come on, what is it? Are you really that poor? I dont believe so. Hell, show us your Barbie collection or something, I know a guy that collects old condom tins, another: Marbles, another: match books from the past, just humor us and lets see your Beanie baby collection that you are saving for your retirement

Car repairs are a killer. Had all three (two trucks, and a Camry) in the shop in the last month. Only got three guns this year. Had to slow down because I'm leaving the Army and don't have a SOLID job lined up yet. Thought things were going good, until I read someone else's post who quoted "but my life is good.. really, really good" I wonder what medication could make life "really really good" ?????

1) Tuition 2) Rent 3) Food 4) Gasoline 5) Ammunition 6) Firearms 7) Gun Accessories 8) Computer Parts Damn, I hope that student loan check arrives soon, the gun show is next weekend, and I have my eye on an AK-47, to supplement my 12 Gauge Shotgun. Wish I had $600 to buy the parts (Olympic Arms Kit: $479 + Olympic Arms Lower: $82 = $561) for an AR-15. Also, I installed XP and now need a new motherboard just to run this resource sucking system. I'll have to spend the money to get a new motherboard since my current one is maxed out at 256 MB of RAM. An Asus A7A266 MB ($143), 1.4 GHz Athlon CPU ($172), and 1.5 GB of SDRAM ($150) = $465.

Nothing right now. I have a budget for my hobbies (includes guns and shooting) and I still have quite a bit of money left for this year but I just don't see anything I really want. I'm still waiting for my LEGP so I'll spend some on Aimpoint ands mounts later and more .223 ammo. Life has been good to me and my wife.
