I will spend over $2500.00 on one gun and scope. As soon as I get smart enough to choose between the three I want.

I moved close to $30K out of my 401K and into firearms in 2008. No regrets. The only benefit I've found of getting old is no early withdrawal penalty. 2009 looks ripe for a repeat. Some prices are high because of the stampede but there are some also some good deals on used guns. None of it is for hunting. I prefer watching woodland critters to killing them. I have deer in my yard nearly every day.

Answering this kind of poll tends to make me sick. It kind of makes you put the numbers together and be somewhat accountable for you spend on this sort of stuff.
Last week I bought two new ARs and 5 Rock River lowers. That kind of threw me right out of this one. The week before I customized a Buckmark with trigger parts, barrel and other odds and ends. I am planning to follow Jerry's outline and build a Savage this year. Just geting into hand loading, so I'l probably hit your top number again there.

Geeze, my wife is going to kill me.

2 CMMG lowers $420
1 Spikes $145
Uppers $900
.308 Savage(soon) $350
500rds .223 $140
Mueller Tactical $125

Then the "wants" start. Want to get the Savage cleaned up and accurized while I am out of the country. No idea on price or time, so add that to the list. Leapers scope($60) and rings($30?) for the airgun to leave at grandma's house. Want some more .223($200), and .308($200) ammo. Also want to do a .243 barrel for the Savage($100), and then ammo for it($200). A mag extension for the Savage would be $90. 10-22 to 10-17 conversion at $2-300, and then maybe a 77/22 mag($4-500) with a 17 barrel($150?), and then ammo for those three calibers($500?)

and I am above $2500 easily. Have never spent this kind of money, even when we were REALLY into guns. I can blame it on the fear of not having the ability to do it after this year.
