Almost too many stupid things to mention (nod to JD on the exercise equipment), but the dumbest FIREARMS related purchase....was my former Taurus Judge.

On the bright side, I did get pretty good trade value towards a nice rifle....so I got that goin' for me.

DIRTY SOB. I tried to dry my dog off 35# of very short coat dog. I think she was more wet when I got done with the dam thing than when she was getting bathed. Not sure how that works but I swear she was more wet when I was done. She hated them so bad she ran down stairs and pissed on the couch. So Vince you owe me for the stupid shamwow's and a couch cleaning. I am just a little pissed about them.

I just paid $50 for a pillow too. We will see how that turns out. Yes I bought a sobakowa air bead pillow. It says $19.95 yeah that is for the kiddy size one If you are like me and have a KING size bed your going to be dropping $49.95 but wait you get a FREE pillow sham as well............
Makes you wonder how bad Billy Mayes screwed someone over huh?

High point 9MM. Would have had better luck throwing it at something than shooting at something with it.

Back in the late 80's I bought a "portable" CD player that came with 2 external speakers from QVC or someone on TV. It showed people jogging with it and supposedly had some new "no skip" technology. I way over paid for it.

The external speakers were crap and crackled if the volume was turned up over level 3. In a soft breeze, the CD would skip and then the player would stop. I guess that was the "no skip" technology. It should have been called "no play" technology.

Other than that, I would say the engagement and wedding ring for the ex-wife.

Man, I've burned through so many electronic crap things I can't even tell you. I'm a real sucker for electronics.

The first Dell laptop I bought in 1996. I called Dell and had it built. It had the best of everything, the fastest processor (300 hz or something really puny, but it was the fastest back then), the biggest hard drive (of course, like 300 megabytes, which was HUGE at the time....not even gigabytes), the works. A 13.3-inch monitor...huge at the time.

I paid $3,300 for it.

A LiveStrong treadmill built by Johnson Tech. $1200.00 used twice and it broke, and has been broken for a month with no tech support other than the company shipping a box full of components to the house.

Damned thing isn't even big enough to hang clothes on like my BowFlex!!
