    Okay - saw on the news this morning that President Bush was pushing for $ 800 in tax rebates for individuals and $ 1600 for families as part of a stimulus package.

    Ignoring the politics for awhile, and indeed the likelihood of this passing, what would YOU do with your rebate to act on your patriotic duty to help stumulate the economy - from a 2A perspective of course?

    A new 1911? Maybe Rugers new Redhawk in .45LC? Decisions...decisions. As for myself, I've been looking over this :

    Plus maybe a case or two of ammo! :D

    They can give all of the rebates they want. I always wind up paying on Illegal Tax Day.

    Probably put it in the bank to help pay 2007 taxes in April. Also probably be 1.00 over whatever income is set as max for the "free money". Guess govt. will borrow from China to make this payment available.

    Use it to make up for the plunging stock market?

    Although a T/C G2 would be nice to have.

    Hopefully, if my local .GOV gets their act together, I will be able to renew my Alien Firearms License...

    A Ruger Hawkeye walnut/blued, probably in .30-06.

    And a Leupold 4X FXII to go on top.

    Would save the rest.

    I bought an M1A (standard walnut, steel barrel), a 1911 (GI), and an XD (.45ACP 4" barrel) in anticipation. I'm getting a lot of tax money back this year, Bush's ideas on economic stimulation aside.

    I'm putting it with the rest of the money I'm saving for my first AR. Easily should put me over the top.

    Well, ours will sit in the bank for emergencies until fall. Barring emergencies, in the fall, to celebrate Thain finishing school, we will use some of it to get our first 1911, probably an STI Spartan.

    A small amount of it will be used right away for ammo, components, and reloading gear.

    Since I'm getting ready to move...

    I probably won't buy anything more to pack and carry around.

    Presuming no emergencies and the Bride doesn't already have an idea, I may just up my membership in the NRA from 'life' to whatever. Or spread it out among a few of the Second Amendment groups.

    Or, I may keep it and buy gas to move from People's Democratic Socialist Republic of California to somewhere in the United States. That would be a pro Second Amendment thing, huh?

    He could buy M-16 parts, they'll never catch him.

    I would buy a S&W 686+ and plenty of ammo for both that gun and my other guns. I really need to stock up on .223 and 9mm.

    I'm using my refund to get a good AK while I still can. One or two more pistols and a good battle rifle is about all my safe can hold :D If I get a rebate on top of that, I need to invest in some reloading equipment so I can afford to shoot more than rimfire...

    52" flat screen plasma I have had my eye on, and if anythings left, probably a new to me revolver.
