QUESTION: After your first full time job, what would be the first thing that you buy for yourself?

    1. pumps are cheap and only 'cool' cause of the movies. Autoloaders are more fun, high end etc. Or a nice break-action if into trap / upland

    2. 3 here - But aren't you limited to three in the magazine and one chambered, taking some of the fun out of semi-auto shotgun? I wasn't thinking of the cool factor as much as price and mechanical simplicity. But I guess price isn't something we're concerned about in this fantasy thread. And now that you mention it, a snazzy over-under could be pretty sweet.

    3. no, five in mag, one in chamber. Most can't even hold that unless you get an extension. 2 in mag if hunting though (for pump and auto).

      I'm waiting for the day I can afford to buy a high end over under - they point so well and the quality level can be amazing.

  8. A car. Model and make do not matter. Would be nice not to be out in the blistering cold waiting for a bus that's usually late, for a change.

    1. this is why middle class is kept stupid and under control by ads, propaganda, public relations. you're willing to buy something you "can't afford" and will get tired of in few months AND will depreciate in value when the next season comes. Have fun spending your money on designers, made through exploitation of human lives, just to feel good. Please learn to think.

    2. 15a, you sound ..pretty insufferable. Almost anything on this page could qualify as overpriced, heavily marketed and causes some damage to the world somehow. What's your big beef with handbags in particular? Girlfriend crush your nuts in one?

    3. 15a hits it on the fuckin head, although i wouldn't say that just because 15 wants a designer handbag that they're addicted to designer handbags
