Okay so I just sent off my taxes and am getting a little over 800 back. I've narrowed it down to 3 things I need ( I really just want them)

1) a new scope for my Model 10 .308

2) a new handgun. I really want to branch my collection back out and love the M&P series

3) a performance chip for my car ( 2008 Audi S4)

What would you choose and why?

The chip or handgun wouldn't take up all of the refund and would leave my some play money but the scope would take it all

I'd be in for #2. I can't see myself spending $800 on a scope. #3 wouldn't even be an option for me. I'm just fine with driving my cars stock.

What's on your .308 now? Could you sell it off and raise enough money to buy a lower priced better scope and the pistol?

It's some crappy 16x42 that with rings, I could get maybe 125 out of. It's not in the best shape

Follow your instincts my friend and get an M&P. I have several and love them.

Part is going to my IRA. The other part is going for some glass on my AR10.

Just make sure you invest in something that will have value, long after it's lost some value in your eyes.

The price of a firearm or scope ( in good condition) will never go to zero.
