    The R8 Professional kit comes with Zeiss glass. And a sling and Pelikan case.

    LOL

    I'd spend it on a private detective to find out why she is being so nice

    +2

    Who needs a hunting rifle that expensive anyway?

    I'd spend it on the biggest, best safe I could get. Because I need a safe, I don't need any more rifles. Honestly.

    I'd put it towards a Mod 1941 Johnson rifle, correct matching parts of course.

    A military rifle that went up against the Garand in the 1930's military trials for a new service rifle. A semi 30-06 with a rotary internal magazine you loaded from the right side, 10 rounds. The Marines tried a few in the Pacific Theater, many went to Canada and the Dutch. Google it for pics.

    I'm starting to think a LaRue "suitcase" Rifle...the PredatOBR...
    ...can get it and a nice scope for about $3500.

    you my friend, need a lever gun or 2. a model 94? what about a 336? i personally would buy an 1895 winchester in .405.

    are you limited to one gun? if not then an 1895, CMR-30, k-31 and an enfield

    or.... an 1895 and a luger.... but then again those of just 2 of the guns on the top of my dream list

    assuming I had a perfect wife like that, I would get me a Seekins Precision CBR(top tier AR15 variant). since the CBR itself only costs about $2200 after tax but only comes in 223-wylde, I would likely frankenstien it with another AR15 of mine, converting the caliber to 6.5 grendel and replacing the handguard with a diamondheadUSA VRS-T and trading the pistol grip for a hogue. that would leave me little over $1300 on optics. I would likely get a Nightforce SHV 5-2x56 scope and a one piece weaver base. not a bad 3500 setup if I do say so. it would also have the side effect of greatly improving the value of my other AR15 as well as it would have a very expensive seekins handguard and would be chambered in 223 wylde.

    Only one rifle? A Model 70 in .458 Win Mag. A pre '64 is probably a few bucks more than $3,500, so I'll take an FNH built one instead.

    That situation is like "Fine, go, have fun" to the 10th power...

    On second thought, I have wanted a M1A Scout for a few years...

    FN SCAR17S.

    Although if my wife did hand me that kind of money just to blow on guns, I would be highly suspicious:p

    I would finish the 338LM that I've been building for the last 3 years... but if I didn't have that going on, I'd get a lathe and related tools.

    Just looked u0 their pistol and rifle class. Combined they run around 3300 so I guess I'd only be there two weeks. I think I'd still be able to crack a smile.
