I'm really jonesing for another gun (9mm or better), but I'm kinda short these days.

I don't do debt.

Is that a good enough excuse to get a Kel-Tec P-11?

P.S. I already have one Makarov, and yes, I know you can never have too many of them, but right now I'm diversifying my assets. :)

Do you smoke?

Quit. And you'll have a good excuse to bitch at everyone around you for a few days, and they'll actually be SUPPORTIVE.

Do you drink?

Ohmigawd... Cut back. Don't give up your Shiner, but hey, do you REALLY need to drink that whole six-pack?

Do you buy crap from vending machines at work? Don't. Put the money in your pocket, and drink iced tea or eat munchies you've brought from home...

While you're at it, don't eat as much, unless you're one of those ()*)(^*&%% skinny people.

Do you go for drives to "relax?" Go for a walk. $0.25/mile savings.

Are you planning on trading in your car for a newer/better/flashier car? Don't. $300/month will pay for a LOT of repairs.

Yeah, save up. The Kel Tecs aren't that expensive anyway...bogie has some good suggestions to help save some $$ for that new gun...maybe go used & save even more ;)

Diversifying? Bulgarian, Russian commercial, Russian milsurp, East German, Miltex commercial Mak, Norinco. Did I miss any? :D

I feel your pain. The job market here sucks. Been working on and off for the last year as a temp just to keep some kind of income coming in.

I invest in reloading components when I have the money. At least I can shoot the guns I already have.
Take a look at an FEG Hi-Power. If you are on a low budget it doesn't get much better than that.

is it really true that you can sell your other, umm, body fluids for a couple grand? (as the dialogue in 'way of the gun' indicated).

Hey, just do it the Democratic (sic) party way: steal some money from somebody.

No.

No.
Do you buy crap from vending machines at work?
Rarely, and it's company subsidized at $0.25 per item.
While you're at it, don't eat as much, unless you're one of those ()*)(^*&%% skinny people.
Hmm... there's a thought. I'm 6'0" and 210lbs. Maybe I could stop eating my beloved feta cheese and Thai food. :(
Do you go for drives to "relax?"
No. I stay home and play computer games or write code.
Go for a walk. $0.25/mile savings.

Hell, no. It's not paid for yet, but at 0%/3yrs on a 17K loan, I'm probably in the ball park. :p

Main point is... I can swing the price of a Kel-Tec. Is that the gun for someone in my monetary situation?

Or can't you guys see I'm asking for an EXCUSE HERE!!!! :neener:

Cheers!
