So, i just got a small and unexpected Christmas bonus. What should i get; i want it all: .308 bolt gun, VZ58 rifle, glock 20c, some 1911 in 10mm (can't afford the STI), a crapload of ammo, even more pistol mags, veggie MRE's, or get my CZ75 & GP100 cerakoted in OD green? Maybe a remote-controlled deer decoy for weekend fun? What's a redneck to do?

I haven't had a gokart in a while, but i don't think i could get in one anymore.

Instead of panicking and blaming sporting firearms, I wonder if people will ever take a realistic look at the mental health issue in this country. Better yet, how about analyzing the pathetic attitudes and unrealistic expectations that we as a culture seem to suffer from. It seems to me that we as a nation have a juvenile attitude towards these issues and behave even more childishly by blaming a symptoms of the problem rather than the actual problem itself. This is a sad state of affairs indeed since we as a nation cannot act like adults and really discuss these issues head on, but instead prefer to politicize a tragdey by placing the blame on something that isn't really the problem at all in the first place.

If you could afford all that I wouldn't call that a "small" Christmas bonus.

Is your GP100 stainless? If so, please leave it in all it's natural beauty.

The VZ58 gets my vote. You are doing yourself a disservice by not getting it.

Nah, it's enough for one of those items, maybe a little left for ammo.
The GP100 is the 6" blued model.

Major, i like the way you think.



Of course, i could wrangle that Ruger Redhawk from my nephew...
