    I guess it depends, this being a gun board I would assume you are ready to hear the short answer witch is "yes, why are you asking this question?". However if the XBox is going to entertain you more, and you feel you will get more out of it in the long run, then don't sell it.

    In my case I have a PS2. I have literally used it 4 days out of the last 5 years. I have guns that I use every weekend.

    Now you have me thinking. Gamefellas get ready for my PS2. :)

    Hell yeah, dump that xbox. When the xbox 360 comes out, you might not be able to unload it.

    If it is indeed a "spare" Xbox, then I know I would get a gun for it if I could.

    Personally I would trade an X Box for just about anything. Certainly for a rifle of any description.

    Do you use the spare X-Box? If not, then get the rifle. The other good point was that the new X-Box will be coming out soon and you can expect the going price for that X-Box to drop significantly. Do the trade.

    That is not a tough choice. Why would you even consider keeping the X-box. I have an X-box myself and love it but I would give it up in a second for another gun.

    X-Box (or any video console) is just mental masturbation anyway so yes, trade it for the rifle. You can always use another gun, right?

    The proper question here is "Why haven't you already swapped the surplus Xbox for a rifle?"


    Come to think of it, WHY HAVEN'T YOU ALREADY MADE THE TRADE ? ? ? ?

    I've never had a rifle give me the BSOD. I have done that with an Xbox (just while playing a game, the box was not modded).

    Rifle or microsoft product...I choose the rifle when possible.

    I'll echo DSRUPTV on this thread; of your post, "spare" is the key word.

    A 'spare' XBox that will soon be dropping in value vs. a scoped .270 that will probably always be worth as much or more than it is now......do the math. :scrutiny:

    How about....trade it for another gun you do want! It's a much more marketable commodity than a (soon to be outdated) XBox.
    Go do it,

    Trade the spare XBox for the rifle, then use the rifle to shoot the primary XBox. Perfect solution!

    :D

    Unless there's something incredibly rare about your spare xbox, or you think you might want to give it as a gift to someone, trade it!

    (Anyone want to trade a gun for my Atari? :rolleyes: :D :D )

    Lol I don't really know anyone who would want that rifle, where could I trade it off to? When I posted this, I was tryin to get some feedback on the rifle :) What's the .270 caliber like? You guys think this gun will be accurate? How much do you think it's worth? I could sell the Xbox right now for $150-$175.

    Single shot rifles and single shot anythings are surprisingly fun. There's something about manually working and action and placing in a new cartridge after each shot that is fun. I am not too familiar with the .270, but from what I can tell it's a popular hunting cartridge. It's always fun to have an "oddball" rifle and I would think it would be a very good rifle to really practice your accuracy with (assuming it's an accurate rifle.) I have no experience with NEF rifles, just a shotgun, and it seemed to be well built.

    X-Box? What's an X-Box?

    Sell anything electronic that has the term "game" associated with it in order to buy a rifle. No brainer.

    And thanks for that link. I had no clue Wal-Mart sold so many different long guns. I have my eye on the Marlin .410 Lever action for pest control ....

    IMHO, I would sell the x-box but I would do more shopping. Probably check with a *reputable* local gun shop for a decent bolt-action. I picked up a used .30-06 for $275 with scope and have not had a single issue with it over the 3 years I've owned it.

    Just a thought.
