So many things I would have liked to share with you… The simple pleasure of warm sunlight on your face. The color of the sky on a cloudless, moonless night. The smell of a freshly caught fish. The intensity of what truly great music sounds like. Subtleties involved in humor.
But we will never have those — or the millions of other — opportunities.
Goodbye son. Show me around and tell me what it’s like when I get there.
I can’t tell if they are trying to do a joke or if they are serious…
This part really makes me nervous when seeing the (lack of) muzzle discipline on display…
If I had to ask right now: what gun (or guns) do you want next — would you have an answer? Maybe a list of potential firearm purchases that you’d like to make? If I had to answer, I could offer several guns that I would like to have right now. Perhaps the newly released Glock 19/17 Gen5. I’ve heard great things about the Arex Rex Zero. An autoloading shotgun such as the Benelli M4 would be amazing. I wouldn’t mind an IWI TAVOR, or a LaRue OBR… the list goes on.
Maybe you don’t have the cash on hand to buy it right now. Or maybe you do but you would face the wrath of your husband/wife if you went out and picked up another gun. There could be any number of reasons preventing you from buying another gun right now. Maybe you just bought one this week and need to space it out a bit.
You could just suck it up and suffer through, pining away for that new gun day after day. Maybe you’re one of those folks who would be able to be consistently good about forgoing a coffee and putting that money away each day until you have the requisite funds to buy that gun of your dreams.
Many major retailers offer layaway programs at the holidays to allow folks to put away a bit at a time for that special gift for someone. Did you know that there are gun stores that would allow you to get firearm financing in the same type of fashion? Doing this fashion takes away the management and self dedication aspect required if doing yourself.
Were you aware that layaway for a firearm was even possible? Most gun shops offering this type of program would require a down payment (typically in the 20 – 40% range) and then would require the balance to be paid off in full in a period of 90 – 180 days (or perhaps longer, depending on your shop’s rules/regulations). There are some shops that have another type of offering – one that lets you shoot now and pay later! For obvious reasons, NFA and/or Class 3 items would not be part of this of SNPL offering. Basically it amounts to a credit application – similar to if you were purchasing a TV from Best Buy and wanted to put it on a company credit card to space out the payments.
Now that you have some alternative ways to make some purchases, get to thinking about what gun you want next. Drop a listing in the comments for what gun (or guns) you have on your ‘buy’ list in the near future. Would love to hear what everyone has their eyes on.
Is Buying a Gun the Best Way to Protect Yourself?
If you live in an area where personal protection is an issue, you have several options. You can concentrate on securing your home and your property to keep it as burglar-proof as possible. You can join a neighborhood watch program to assist the police in monitoring your area for suspicious signs of criminal activity. There are plenty of ways to help keep your area as safe as possible from muggers, drug dealers, and home invaders. The ultimate way to protect yourself and your family from such criminal elements is to purchase a gun.
Your Decision is Purely Personal, No Other Opinions Need Apply
When it comes to deciding whether or not to purchase a gun to protect yourself and your family, there are many considerations to take into account. However, at the end of the day, the decision is purely personal. This is a choice you must make after hard thought and consultation with your family. However, it’s a choice that no one has the right to interfere with. If you decide that you do need to purchase a gun, there is no justification for anyone to stand in the way of your choice.
Buying a Gun Doesn’t Have to Be A Budget Breaking Nightmare
Perhaps the main reason why so many people put off making a decision to buy a gun is the damage they believe such an action will inflict on their budget. Many people think that guns are simply too expensive an item to be considered. It is true that, in many states, tight control laws do exist concerning the purchase of such a weapon. However, there is always a way around such well-meaning, if inconvenient, strictures. Moreover, this loophole is perfectly legal for all American citizens to make use of.
