    You're given a C note as you enter your favorite gunshop, you can use it for anything firearm related. What do you buy? Now do you use it as a downpayment for lay-a-way, buy ammo, mags, speedloaders, powder, ammo, shot, wads, bullets, hulls, cases...etc.. What about that used 22lr rifle? Maybe buys, or goes toward CCW you've been putting off. Shooting lessons, range time, you get the idea.

    Lets not worry about taxes...there isn't any on this shopping spree. :D

    Have Fun

    Greeting's Sir,

    I probably would use the C-note gift to purchase some
    additional reloading supplies, such as powder's, primers,
    and virgin brass*.

    *FootNote- when working up MAGNUM loads, I like to
    start with virgin brass.

    Best Wishes,
    ala Dan, N.R.A. Life Member

    A c-note will get you a nicely refurbished Mosin Nagant, or one of many other milsurp firearms.

    reloading supplies, unless there was a good deal lying around. if the store had a range, perhaps the money would go towards a range membership.

    Replies are coming in as I suspected, Thanks and keep them coming.

    Like kids in a candy store...can't take us anywhere :p

    With Preacherman's Luck, he'd find another LNIB 870 for less than a C note.:D Somebody follow and him and see how he does it.

    You can never have enough ammo or components...

    I'd apply the C-note towards my CCW purchase.

    Yea, I do the impluse buy thing in candy stores, if the right candy is present.

    8 lb container of Clays powder.

    Since this is just a hypothetical, I'll have to shell out my own money this afternoon, since I'm down to just a couple boxes of 12ga shells. It looks like a weekend reloading marathon is in order to get me through the rest of summer trap league.

    following preacherman when he does not want to be followed is contraindicated by my operations manual.

    Put it towards a Florida non-resident permit. If that's not really a valid use of the gun store's Benjamin, then probably a down payment on a new lay-away!

    8 lbs of surplus 4895, with enough left over to maybe squeeze in a box of primers! Can I pay you Tuesday for the bullets today?

    If I'm walking into the local gun shop, it's probably because I'm about to buy something (usually ammo). That being the case, I'd just use it to "lesen the cost" of whatever I was about to buy.
