I guess it's still "in the mail".
When that comes, I guess I'ma buy me about 2,000 rounds of .22 and if any's left... a cheeseburger. Assuming food prices haven't skyrocketed by then.
Real nice! How large of a hunting/fishing/camping rig are are you getting? Our old (1965 I think) 15' Shasta camp trailer is worn out, and we've been looking at some that look like those in the pictures.
Like I said though, part of our 2nd and 3rd stimulus payments will probably go towards a new .257 Weatherby. We've been saving for a new hunting trailer for a couple of years now, and having a new .257 Weatherby along when we're using it will be extra nice.
I'm torn between that or being adult and responsible. I could pay off a debt. I could put it in my IRA. I feel like this isn't the time (politically) to be a responsible adult. I feel like now is the time to make hay while the sun shines. I'm reading the other thread about guns we regretted buying, and I'm thinking about that. I'm not much for the AR/AK world, but what is going to be permanently unavailable in the near future?
So far the checks have bought me a Kel-Tec RDB, a PSA AK-P, and now this last one will pay for most of a Desert Tech MDRX that I just ordered.
Well, a stimulus is supposed to be spent, to stimulate the economy.
But we'll put most of this new one into savings, much like the last few. We have kids and for some unGodly reason the stimulus gives them just as much so ...
Yeah, if you qualify. It was what ... $600, $1200, now $1400. This being the third one.
Not upset, just glad I’ve been fortunate enough not to get pounded financially like many others have.
I did do a good job with my tax withholding in 2020...after downing a few hours this afternoon with Turbo Tax I only owe the Feds $63.00 and the State owes me a bit of money.
Since I’m not going to be in a tax hole I think I may raise my high bid again to be sure I win my next gun auction... or the other guy pays more for it than he should .
Spend wisely and stay safe.
Actually, since I used the stimulus checks to buy wish list items, I was able to divert more regular funds into maxing out my Roth IRA last year. So they did help me save.
I think we are in the same position. It really sucks too. If I can say that. Hey, Uncle Joe, I need some help too, please!
I view it as them giving some of my money back that the govt thieves have stolen from me. So ol Chuckie and Nancy still haven't purchased my vote--because they will never get it.
I agree-but I'm not giving my checks back to the government. So far, we're fortunate enough financially to be able to give our stimulus money to our daughters. My wife and I are retired and live on fixed incomes but I told her we might visit DisneyLand with the next checks.
Anyone remember the WIN (Whip Inflation Now) buttons sponsored by (I believe) President Ford's administration? Inflation is the biggest economic enemy of the middle class.
Still, regarding stuff, I've lusted for a Winchester Model 71 rifle for a very long time...
I’ll be saving mine. FPURX, FSKAX, & FTIHX.
It kinda hurts tho... PE ratio is high. But today’s highs will be amazing pricing years from now. I can’t time the market. So... in it goes.

I prefer SnugTop to Leer, not familiar with the other. My 06 Tacoma showing off it's new shoes, ordered in May 2005 and got it September of 2005. Toytec lift and custom drive shaft and other stuff. The SnugTop was an order option and has served well. I had a Leer on my previous Toyota and it was a good top but not as strong as the SnugTop.
I kind of look at it like this, the stimulus money I received was scary close to what I was penalized at the end of the year, 2 years in a row, for the great sin of not being able to afford health insurance, all the while paying out of pocket for appoinments and prescriptions, thanks BHO. I typically don't look favorably at government dole outs, but I basically feel as though I was just getting back what was mine in the first place.
Remind Nancy it was your money to start with.
I've been very happy with my Leer. 8 years and 90k miles. Only minor issues. Paint looks as good as the day I bought it.
Oh a cop out to fit the Euro market eh? Makes sense. Not a big fan of compromise designs made to fit each and every draconian nation on Earth. I’m hoping Ian and Karl decide to offer the 14.5 upper at some point in the future as it was perfect. In the meantime, I’ll have to get by with this old school lightweight carbine:
