Howdy again...

OK I know this is going to generate some funny replies and that's expected. Now that being said, I just sold a motorcycle I wasn't riding much and now I have $4300 I didn't have. Needless to say I doubt I will do the mature/adult thing like pay off bills or save it.

So here is where you guys come in.....I'm just going to post this here and not in the rifles or rimfire sections. I got $$$ and I want new guns. Maybe you'll suggest something I had not even though of. The two I was thinking about: M1 Garand and FN 5.7 pistol

What would you guys do/buy with the extra cash?

Looking forward to your replies....Steve

I like your choices but I would get something with ammo a little more common than the 5.7. Like a 9mm.

CMP Service Grade M1, 1,000 rounds of ammo. ~1,200

CZ-75B & 1,000 rounds. ~700 before shipping, tax, fees

That leaves you with a fair amount left over to customize your guns.. Buy a new stock set, get more mags, kadet conversion, etc.

It would make me sad to turn a motorcycle into an FN57.

Obviously, a custom 1911 is high on the list of possibilities considered.

Personally, I'd look at a Walther P88, BHP or Sig P210. The Garand is nice choice. Perhaps also a Sako with nice optics? It would be nice to the turn motorcyle into something timeless.

Personally...... Well, I would pay down a credit card, but bills be damned, I would start probably with an FN F2000 or a .416 bolt gun. Pistols, that's actually a tough one, maybe a 5.7 or maybe wait to see what they come out with in the .22 TCP, that's gonna be a fun round :D

Get the FN 57 AND the FN PS90 -- you'll be the only kid on your block who can share ammo between pistol and carbine

http://www.fnhusa.com/support/images/dynamic/m/FNM0016mb.png

But for that kind of money, you could spend a tenth of it to set up an NFA trust, and then get yourself some seriously cool stuff...

Forget the garand and FN. Just get yourself a Ruger Mark III Hunter 22LR pistol and couple thousand rounds to blast away the " gun itch ".

You will be left with over $3,000.00. Now, take a nice Carribean cruise with your wife/girlfriend. She will love you for it, you will both have a grand time, it will be an experience of a lifetime something you will fondly remember for years and years.

I am going to be the responsible one here (boo, hiss). Is all of your consumer debt paid off? If not, you have no business blowing this money on toys, you should pay off all consumer debt as quickly as possible. If your consumer debt is all paid off, do you have kids? Is their college paid for?

If all of the above is paid off, you have at least 6-9 months of savings to live on if you lose your job, then I say go for it, blow it on guns/ammo/toys.

Everyone knows you can't own an M1 Garand without having a 1911 to go with it. As for the CZ, get the SP01. As for anything left over, I'll PM you my account info, I have a standing agreement with the bank that anyone is allowed to deposit money into my account. :)

Yeah, one like this:

With $1500 to spare on the significant other, if you can't convince her this is "investment grade."

Just sold for $2800 on GB (in Simi Valley, no less).

All gun-lust aside though, pay off your bills first.

Pay off a bill or two and that will free up extra monthly cash for you to still go out and buy toys, you can have the best of both worlds.

Let's assume all bills are paid (LOL!!)

I think the reloading equipment is a good idea. At least keep $500 of the 4300 for that purpose. That is an "investment".

Then ... buy some uber sweet over/under shotgun with fancy shmancy engraving and stuff. And some Grey Poupon.

Do an cheapo reverse IPO then give a bunch of shares to attorneys, accountants, marketing people, top influencers, and some down-and-out fx guy with an obsolete patent. Build a glossy website, get grandiose and map out a global media empire, all while withholding the rent on your 500 square foot office in an industrial zone in Van Nuys. Suck up a few million dollars in cash from investors, and then file your last "unable to timely file" with the SEC. Pivot to a whole new industry and explain to everyone that well, things would have gone better in a different economy. Spend a modest amount of your windfall on guns and ammo... anything more than $75k would be overdoing it.

Alternatively, get an insurance brokerage license and buy 43000 leads for senior care facilities, get your relatives to cold-call them using a drawl, for instance, if they're calling places in the south, or all snappy-like if they're calling the east coast. Set up meetings where you share your special techniques with them on how to reduce their insurance costs by 50%. Hire a bunch of agents to really get things moving, and then fire them and take their commissions once they've built up a good book of business. Buy a few facilities yourself and run it on cash to help launder drug money for some friends. Take a photo with the ex-insurance commissioner and post it on your website. Spend a humble chunk of the revenues on guns. More than 100K or so would probably be overdoing it. Keep telling people that your hair really is blonde, but that you dye it brown to be taken more seriously in business.

I'd either have a custom 1911 built for me starting from a brand new frame and slide and go from there, get a Wilson Supergrade on the secondary market or (what I would personally do) Order a custom tricked out M14 from LRB and put some nice glass on it!

Ammo.

I never seem to run out of guns, the the dang ammo just seems to disappear.

I vote the bills/savings route. But if you're gonna buy a new gat, any of these should suffice: http://www.fulton-armory.com/M14-Rifles.aspx

A M1 Garand and FN 5.7 pistol would be nice but you have $4,300. Think about a SVT-40 and a Les Bear 1911.

$4300 will buy you 86,000 nickels. Stockpile those little coins and in a few years your money will triple or quadruple. Saw it on the internet; it must be true (http://www.survivalblog.com/nickels.html)!
