I started a new job a month ago... with alot better pay... I finally get my paycheck, and went on a buying spree...

I bought a Savage stainless bull barrel bolt action .17 HMR, accu-trigger, thumbhole ventilated laminate stock, and a BSA Sweet .17 3-12x40 scope... $500 out thedoor, 2 extra magazines and scope rings for free...

then on the way home from THAT gunshop, I stopped at another... they had a USA Shooting Team Ruger 10-22 "Ruger Race Gun"... red/white/blue laminate thumbhole "barracuda" stock... (Dad really wanted one) for $450... I called dad, and he wanted it... SO,

I got Dad's 10-22 target gun for what he paid for it... $400.00...

Volquarsten stainless bull barrel, Volquarsten cantilever scope mount, Volquarsten trigger group (adjustable), Leupold Vari-X II 3-9x40 scope, Millett rings, and Hogue Overmolded stock...

just what one should do with a brand-new job... spend 50% of ones first check on guns, eh? (or am i really crazy for real?)

36 year old single male, home and all vehicles paid for... since you mention it... (got a steady GF of about 15 years, but no kids of my own), so, yes, my income is indeed mine to keep... (or spend) as I see fit...

this would explain the walk-in closet full of guns, 3 pickup trucks, a Jeep, a motorcycle, and 4 or 5 cars...

being single does have it's benefits!

I just started a new job also but the first thing I bought was a new solar hot water heater and pump for my house. After that I bought a VZ 58 parts kit and reciever.

My house and cars are also paid for so I have some money to spend as I want.
