    ...handed you $3,500. of her "mad money", and she said;
    " your such a great husband, go buy a special Rifle..."
    What would you get?

    I have a Merkel Semi-auto, a bunch of nice bolt action rifles,
    Rugers, Browinings, Win. Model 70's, Sako's, none quite $3.500. "nice"...
    ...and a bunch of AR15 Rifles, nice ones, KAC SR15, LWRC, D.D. /Ambush,
    Colt, SIG, Ruger... none at that price point.

    I'm torn between a nice semi-custom JP AR15 in .300AAC, i've been building
    ( on their site...with their Rifle-Builder tool )...
    ...or a nicer Bolt action hunting rifle than any I have?

    If you have similar already, or anything close...
    ...what would you get?

    I would definitely get a custom long range hunting rig. I even have one in mind just in case.

    I would get a GAP Non-Typical in .260 Rem.

    I'd wonder what she was up to...nothing comes for "free".

    Depends on where the "hole" in my collection was. I'm jonesing for a custom bolt action build in either 7mm Magnum or 300 Win Mag (can't decide between the two) to host a suppressor for "reach out and touch" distances for hunting/precision. I know that if I went for both uses some compromises would have to be made, but I do the best I could with $3500.

    A Shiloh Sharps 1874 in 45/70 with enough extras and fancy wood to spend all $3,500.

    I'd set aside $1000 for an awesome gift for an amazing woman, then spend the $2500 remaining on a few guns I've always wanted.

    I'd be busy making a tough decision between a Cooper 52 Jackson Hunter, and a NULA... Jackal's right though, it would be a wise investment to launder some of the $3500 into a surprise gift for the wife.

    sounds like you already have the rifles covered... i'd spend $2500-3000 on glass and spend the rest on returning the favor
