Ain't that the truth. I plan to depress the economy by using it to pay for stuff I already bought.
I'm currently "stimulating" the economy by getting my truck painted so I'll be getting a car cover for it. I could always use more ammo though.
By caressing it gently and whispering in its ear, "Oh, economy... you're so beautiful."
Use it to finish paying off the Mossberg 590 I have on layaway, and then put either a compact 9mm or AR-15 back on the same layaway shelf .
$600 should *just* pay for a Glock 20
Will you be telling it about inflation...
Had hopes for drilling a water well this spring, kitchen stove crapped out, haven't finished the deck, credit cards need paying. Ah, the joys of being a homeowner. Only stimulation I might get out of this package is getting a new Ed Brown magwell on my single stack.
There are always consequences to stimulation... lol
I'm going to buy myself a P228. Then maybe I can open carry it to "stimulate" the locals.
As soon as I heard about the relief package I started to think it would be great for firearms sales. Any gun shop owners care to comment?
For me it will be a first AK purchase.
i'm well the wife is buying a liberator!
I will have to start reloading more, primers, bullets and powder. Hope that helps.
I'm looking at a repro of a Colt Model 1860.
I love it. I work 80 hours a week and will likely top out just over 150k, so people who are too poor to pay taxes can go buy an i-pod. If by some chance I sneak in under the mark, I'll be paying off the 120k student loan I incurred so I could become part of the socialized medical system we are about to have.
Bread and circuses.
Ammo, lots and lots of ammo
Rem, lighten up a little, its the weekend. have a nice day
I'm still kinda fuzzy on the details and I don't even know if I qualify, but if I do, I just sent in the forms for my C&R license. CZ 82 perhaps?
Unfortunately I come in over the cut-off. But it's nice to know the deserving poor will benefit.
Goes towards the New Car Fund, probably. I'm in a static or downsizing trend in my collection right now. Which just means I haven't found a deal or something new I want recently.
He may be giving you, he is not giving me.
This whole scheme is such a fraud. I think I'll go withdraw $600 from my ATM and then deposit it tomorrow.
However, if I had $600 to spend, I'd buy four AR-15 lowers.
I wish I could be excited. I would be...if we had a surplus.
What we're doing now is giving ourselves $600 dollars on credit. That money doesn't come from "thin air". We're running a huge deficit and already borrowing heavily from other countries while simultaneously printing more money in arbitrary quantities because the US spends way beyond it's means. The US dollar is worth less than a Canadian loon ($1 coin)
That $600 check is probably worth $500 from the amount it just devalued the dollar I ain't going to spend mine on traditional goods; I'm going to save it, or put it into precious metals. Continuously dropping interest rates only artificially prolongs a waning economy. Gold has jumped from the high $700s back in November to over $900 in just a month, and its usually a very good inverse indicator on how well the economy is doing.
If you and your wife had combined income of $75,000 ($37,500 each) then Uncle Sam gives you a big bag of nothin'.
So please do not take alarm if I am not jumping up and down because I and my wife work and are not gettin a dime. I should just be happy I paid taxes and not complain.
My guess is that with my wife and I both working we're over the AGI limit . .anyone know what the latest scheme is?
It kind of pisses me off that they basically are just taking from one group and giving it to another, but that's just me. I guess if everyone spent their rebate on firearms I'd be happy.
Ok forgive me if I am now jumping up and down.
I'm single and my adjusted gross income is just enough I probably won't get anything, but being single, my tax rate is so high that I don't get to keep as much of my income as a lot folks who will get something.
