Default Sometimes good things do happen to people

I was worried for the last few months about getting a dreaded assault weapons, possible a good CAR-15, Cetme, or AK-47, before the election comes around. Sense I believe that obama/bidem if elected will ban them and having little to no money it makes it hard to get one by that time frame.

2 days ago my mother who is living with me now sent me over to get $20 in scratch off lottery tickets. I scratched them and got about $8 back so I went to cash them in yesterday and instead of getting the money I got 5 more lottery ticks brought them home and scratched them off and won $19. I had to go to the store for milk so I cashed them and added a $ and got 10 scratch off BINGO tickets.

Scratching them off the first two were no wins, then I got 2 $2 wins on the next two, the 5th one was a no win so I started in on the 6th one and lo and behold I hit for $15,000. Now my son and I will be able to get the Assault Rifles we want. Monday my son and I will go pick up the winnings, come back and deposit it, then head to the range where we will buy the guns.

Awesome news opaww - I know times have been a bit tight for you and yours for awhile now. This has to help relieve some stress under your roof I am sure.

Congratulations on the winnings and please post pics of your new additions when you get them.

I'm thinking just as much about the human refuse that showed up at the RNC and were attacking the LEO's. Of course, this is the Right Coast and we don't have many hippies here, but you never know.
