    There are so many things I want. More reloading gadgets. More guns. More powder. More guns. More bullets. More guns. More primers. More defensive ammo. More guns. More land. More guns. My own range. Gun safes. Did I mention more guns? A CCW permit here. NRA certification for instructing.

    I wish I had more money......

    What kinds of things do you guys want, that you just can't afford right now (but might actually be a possibility in the future)?

    McIntosh sound system... Then maybe a home worthy of putting it into on at least 50 acres with water rights.

    I just want more handguns. I live in Komifornia and they are thinking about finally implementing the micro stamping B.S on all handguns. I want a few more before that crap happens.

    Cheaper ammo, and a place in the country where I can carry my rifle around and shoot my dinner (squirrel) when I want to.

    My list is a bit weird I guess.
    I've lived a pretty good life and had a lot of things. But it seems I tend to either leave stuff behind, sell it off or just give it away.

    What I'd really like is to make sure my kids and grandkids are reasonably taken care of. (both are doing pretty well on their own but I'd like to give them more)

    For myself, I'd like to have a good car every couple of years and enough to travel the country staying in nice hotels.

    Maybe a condo somewhere between Atlantic Beach, NC and St. Augustine, Fl.

    I've reached a point that I realize I don't want stuff. I want the freedom to travel and I like living in hotels or short term rentals. Houses, condos, cabins, boats, hotels, I don't care.

    I agree, I want so very many things and often get frustrated that I work my a$$ off and can't afford everything right now. Then I remind myself that I have happy healthy kids and money can't buy that. Want more guns though LOL



    Afterthought, at least our problems are not real problems "I want to be cancer free" or "I want to get a job"
    I am not religious, yet I believe most of us are blessed to have the disposable income for firearms.
    Sorry for ruining the thread with my rant.

    I want enough money in the bank for my daughters education througout her life. I feel like that would be a giant weight off of my shoulders.

    I just want to retire. I will get a pension. and I put a heck of a lot into my 401 (k) program. I dream of getting social security and Medicare forever after retirement?
    I don't worry much about my children's college tuition. I keep hoping they will either be smart enough to get scholarships or too dumb to go to college. Two down, three to go. So far so good! :D
    I don't think the average degree is worth the expense. Most graduates don't even work in their fields. I dropped out in tenth grade, took the GED test, and went to work. I did go to community college for maybe six years (the company pays tuition) and never got a degree.
