I hate these kinds of decisions
« on: August 26, 2016, 07:07:10 AM »
It really sucks sometimes when you have more than one hobby :bangheadonwall:, on one hand do I buy new exhaust for the Mustang or do I buy a new gun or do I get parts for the AR build :scream3:. If it were left up to me I'd do all three but seeing as my b@lls are in my wife's purse right next to my wallet I only get one choice :icon_redface:. Oh well I still have till the beginning of October when I'm back home for vacation to make the big decision :th_thicon_lol:.

Sounds like you're assuming (only) 1 out of 3 is a hard choice.  You have a month to negotiate / work the price or wife.  I wouldn't take that as a fait accompli. Keep working it.
Good luck!

Been there.  The household budget.  Car parts or fishing gear?  Bullets or "butter"?  Submitted for your consideration: car parts will always be available, at fairly stable prices. Firearms, ammo, related parts and accessories, in very near future may not be.  If Hillary returns to the White House, and/or the Dems take House and Senate, along with SCOTUS, you can anticipate a repeat of the great ammo famine of 2009.  ARs and related parts will vanish.  Prices on shotguns, rifles, and handguns will skyrocket, and then they too will vanish.  "Invest" in your future.

Personally, I'm not a car guy because they suck. So, my vote goes for gun parts, which like Af said are going to become like hen's teeth here in a month or two.

Accordingly, that narrows down your decision to two items. Depending on what gun it is you want and how cool it is, your decision should already be made for you!

Mustang will run with factory exhaust, but an AR build is useless till completed ;)

So to re-visit this question, now that the present administration is in place and the threat of mass confiscation is off the table and it seems AR parts are still plentiful, the dilemma remains..........

Asking for forgiveness is easier than asking for permission, get both.
I call my AR-15 Anne; she's pretty and likes to accessorize. My AK-47 is known as Frank, he won't stop no matter how dirty he is. Oh and when the gov't comes look'n for 'em, they be hid'n in the attic!

Take up a new more expensive hobby.
Then she'll beg you to go back to the Mustang/AR.

I doubt we were close to mass confiscation.
Not enough political will to do that.

Like most the rest of his presidency, Obama talked a good anti-gun game,
but in reality, accomplished very little,

except convince people to buy.
In Texas, "He needed killin' " is a defense to prosecution.

Heck, I broke down and bought my wife her own GT Mustang back in November so now she doesn't complain about mine or the guns as much.

Beside screwing us and helping muzzies, Thats pretty much ALL he did was talk.

The ammo, and Ar stuff   around here has dropped in price considerably on 16 inch carbines.
It seems the LGS's all stocked up thinking the hildabeast was going to win, and they could gouge the crap outta everyone.
Now they are overstocked and trying to sell, but the hoarders have all calmed down.
There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".
