    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! :p

    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.
    (Yes, I know that I am no fun.)

    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).

    I would save it until I found a gun I absolutely had to have. If you're not sure, then don't spend it yet.

    Get the best of both worlds: KelTec PLR-16 long range pistol. Shoots .223 and is HELLA fun at the range!

    Purchase a Bigfoot hunting kit. It does not come with a gun but, I would suggest getting another $500 and purchasing a Marlin 45-70 "Scout" to add to the kit.
    1. Fun for the family (hunting together, being in nature together).
    2. You get a thermal camera (do I need to say more)? The only thing better than a thermal camera would be a camera that you can look at women with (or a man- ladies)... That show them without cloths!
    3. You can spend more money on a very nice gun that is good for hunting in South Africa?
    4. If you get a Bigfoot, you will be forever famous! Not like reality TV famous, but like Bear Grills famous!

    What do you guys think about a Beretta PX4, or maybe a makarov?

    An AK-47 maybe? Can they still be found at that price?

    He is right, buy 500 dollars worth of toliet paper. You will need it and the money you spent on it will be making you the cost of inflation about 3.5%.
