    Yesterday i drove up to Showlow AZ to see my lovely fiance' and take advantage of her 25% off deal she got as an incentive at Walmart for working Thanksgiving weekend. We bought new tires for my truck and camaro, all our christmas gifts, decor for our wedding as well as some of the groomsman clothing, groceries and of course I had to swing by the gun counter....turned out their 9mm ammo is on sale. 200 rounds of federal brass case ammo for $20....- my fiance's discount made it $15. Same thing with 555 round Winchester 22Lr, and 100 round cases of 12 gauge ended up being about $16 Then I saw the Henry's. I have been wanting a 22 golden boy for a while...$399...came out to $299. Then I got to thinking, I really want a 357 magnum lever action, and a 45/70 and have been for a long time...and there were two more beautiful blue and brass Big Boy rifles on the rack. $729 and $769 respectively. 25% off...and that brought all three rifles down to $1422. My fiance actually supported the craziness and now I have 3 pretty new Henry's. She said she's not going to be working there next year so this was my big chance. I love that woman.

    All we bought was toilet paper and some laundry soap. Sounds like you had a better time with your discount.

    My dad used to tell me " A fellow can go broke trying to save money". Pretty sure this was what he had in mind.

    Wow when you and your fiance go big, you go big!!! Sounds like you should bought a wheelbarrow while you were at it if only for hauling all of your merchandise out to your truck!

    Oh yeah, your fiance is most definitely a keeper!

    I would have told her "the hell you're not, you're gonna work here forever". Just kidding. Sounds like a great start to a long marriage. Pictures would be nice. Some pictures of the guns too.:D
