I got a bigger tax return than I expected and went a little nuts. Which of these was the dumbest thing to buy?

Benelli M4 Super 90 (11707):



PVS-14:

Hell, I like all of them.............not dumb at all

I dunno if I'd call any "stupid"......

I'm not all that hype to buy night vision though.

I'm also satisfied with one shotgun platform.....

I'd've used that money on a Paraclete vest and plates.

Nice carbine

I don't currently own a shotgun, so I would have bought that.


I also don't own night vision, so I would have bought that.


I like the look of that LW, so I probably would have bought that too.



Good on ya.

Swap out night vision for a 1911, Glock, Beretta, etc......

Fuck that! I got to play with some PVS-7D's and they were easily more kickass than my entire gun collection... but don't tell my guns I said that!

That must have been a hell of a tax return! Those are some spendy toys.

Am I stupid or what?


What.

Ummmmm.


Your Sir are Fucking Brilliant!




Not Dumb at all!

Hmmm.... I like all of them,

but I would have gotten an 870 instead of the bennelli and used the extra $ for forend light, and saved some money and bought a normal AR and used extra money for optics and mags.

You're not stupid.. you just suck.

Trade your gun collection for one, and you can see an intruder in the dark, and then throw the PVS at him....


I imagine if you were to varment hunt at night..? it may warrant having. Otherwise it is alot of money for a "toy". I do have some expensive "toys" myself.

Get Both?

There are no real bad choices here. Just hard choices,Good Luck!
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 4:49:15 PM EDT
Looks pretty kickass to me.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 4:54:33 PM EDT
the NVG is the BEST buy.
Soon as I get the fookin' degree, I'll be dropping major $$ for some NVG.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 5:07:11 PM EDT
All really nice stuff, nothing there I don't want to have. I'd only say you were stupid if you were allready riding heavy CC debt or similar and bought the stuff instead of paying it down.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 5:14:38 PM EDT
I wanted a Benelli M4 but than found out they arent making extensions anymore, havinga cool looking gun just isnt worth it if it doesnt have the performance
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 5:17:00 PM EDT
Not stuipid at all, but I hate you nonetheless.
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 5:20:38 PM EDT
No hookers No blow?
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 5:26:56 PM EDT
the real question is, how much did you spend?
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 5:31:36 PM EDT
I was SO ready to vote stupid.

I was hoping for stupid like wanting to know if ARFCOM likes you stupid, or stripping electrical wires while the cord is plugged in stupid.

You so disappointed me

Cool toys!
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 6:12:15 PM EDT
I vote PVS-14, but that's dependant on how much you paid for it. May be a better unit (or Gen 4?) out there for that $$.

This looks VERY nice, but is significantly more expensive. Thermal monocular, useable on Elcan mount as a riflescope

I already have a Glock and a 1911. I like my SIGs a lot better than either of those, and I don't theink there's anything that a Beretta can do that a SIG P226 can't do at least as well. Now a suppressor for a SIG....

That's where the "went a little nuts" part came in. The tax return didn't cover half of it; it just got me in a buying mood.

Bingo. A whole bunch, but it's budgeted to be paid off in 10/07. This little spending spree didn't change the payoff date, but I could have knocked a couple or three months off the repayment schedule by being more responsible.
