This is a bit of an eye opener when you sit down and work it out. I have spent 4k on guns and 3.5k on projectiles powder and primers this year alone. If I add in what I spend on hunting ducks and quail and various reloading equipment new brass and optics it is not something I wish to write down.

exwife thought house was supposed to be a show case. I look at a house as resonable secure shelter. Now that she is gone I have just bought a RRA A4 and a Trijicon TR23-2 for it. Don't miss her at all.....:)

You should have included a 3-5k option.

I agree, or more.

Typically, I spend (blow) better than 10K on arms related stuff... That includes long guns, pistols and match pistols plus optics. Not included is the cost of hunting trips or the thousands of rounds of various calibers I squirrel away via handloads or factory ammo........

All a good investment.

I don't have a Cabelas Signature Black for no reason......:)

My wife cares less. She gets her jewelry, her Persian rugs and stuff and I get firearms.

BEEN THERE!!! I bought a 111LRH and built myself an extremely nice fly rod in celebration of mine going away.

.....being a 3 time looser, I can't afford another loss. Thank goodness I found one who appreciates me for what I am and it's reciprocal.

She has her draft horses, her hunting dogs, her cats, all her Persian rugs a new ride every 2 years and property and I have my guns, motorcycles, a large pickup truck and a Caddy to drive (when my butt hurts).....

Great trade off's. Besides she told me a long time ago that I would be the one leaving and I could have a pillow, with no pillowcase of course......:)

I've got a whole room full of things that go bang so it's all good here.

She's not into guns at all other than her pistol she keeps in the drawer in the kitchen, ,loaded of course. I sometimes wonder if its for the anticipated intruder or for me if I get out of line....

and yes, she's reading this over my shoulder.......:D

I have nothing to hide, not that I could anyway. I'm a terrible liar......

I've casually mentioned a Barrett 50 with the Leupy and BORS. She made no comment.

Probably more than I should. But, justification of expenses should be left to
congress. Being a conservative, I will cut corners where ever possible to get the job done. I will definately stay within my budget. Which is not much.

Which means, I plan on going spring bear hunting and spring turkey hunting
on the same trip, in state. If any big cats ( tag), coyotes or other nastys get in the way, oh well. SSS.

The rest of the year will include several fishing trips to some of our productive kokanee lakes. (land locked Atlantic salmon).

A split in Big game season between Archery and LDH Rifle.
Archery for deer and Ldh Rifle for Elk.

Keep your shots in the middle.

Probably not a whole lot more than I have already spent this year.

My budget is about 1/3 gone already. So with Spring Bear hunting and
Turkey hunting on the same trip, in state. (Long week end.)

Then some Club shoots.

A few Kokanee fishing trips. (Atlantic Salmon).

Archery Deer hunt in Sept., and an LDH hunt for Elk in October.

Some more club shoots til the snow flys.

$2000.00 more or less.


Keep them in the middle.
