Default What to do with $500?

Should I save it, or spend it?

I want something in 9mm or .223.
I kinda want to save up for a USP, but that's about $300 off.

Any ideas?

What do you want more a pistol or rifle? Or I should be asking what do you have now?

Rock Island Armory 9mm 1911? You should have enough leftover for some ammo too.

I like this idea, I don't have a 1911 yet, I'm just getting into the handguns.

I don't have a preference to handgun or rifle, I need more of both desprately... But for someone who has to deal with school, graduation, and doesnt have a real job, I'm pretty well off!

I would keep the $500 until I found an outstanding deal. When a motivated seller is ready to sell cash is king.

hey that's my token answer!

in all seriousness, i picked mine up for $400. absolutely love it, accurate & so far flawless.

$500 could get you a nice savage bolt action in .223 but make sure you have some coin left over for a decent scope

Save it! Put it into a mutual fund, or any other type of savings you have.

For what a savings will draw 1/2% percent. To me not worth the bank using ur money and I don't think u can even start a mutual fund or IRA with less than $1000

Don't know what you should do but if it was me, I'd try to come up with another $100 and get a Glock 17 and a couple of extra hi-cap mags to go with it. And I wouldn't wait too long to do it, either (especially the mags).
