New kind of "gun play"

Like most of us, I have a gun dream that is out of my financial means. Mine would be a Ruger Precision bolt action rifle with a Leupold scope, and a nice bipod. This would total about $3000.00, and a divorce. (300 Win mag, or a 338 Lapua mag)

So, this year, I am playing a game just for fun. Every week, I buy a $2 scratch off. Top prise for the ticket I play is $15,000. If I win $2000 or more, I buy my rifle. any less and it goes for a payment of whatever I have on layaway at Buds at the time.

No, I really don't expect to win a few thousand dollars, but it is fun to play and it is about the only way, I could bring home that rifle without getting a divorce. Until then, I'll keep a $500 or less gun on layaway.

Nice way of Thinking and Hope the Best for You.
Your chances of the Jackpot Just might be Slim.
Thought I read somewhere that Your Chances of Getting Hit By Lightning just might be Better than getting a Jackpot on the Lottery.

I think it's a great plan. Two bucks a week to keep the dream gun a possibility seems reasonable. Good luck!
