Help the Economy

If the stimulus comes through, I'm thinking about helping to jump start the economy by picking up a SS Convertible Single Six in 5.5" or 6.5".

As a liberal taxpayer, I say go for it. I would lean more towards the new PC Charger myself.

Maybe I can afford that new Ruger Five Seven after all.

The same thought has crossed my mind... In my current situation though, the stimulus money will pay for one month mortgage, and a tank of oil... Right now that is more important to me- having a backup plan... I have plenty of guns for now, I will wait till things loosen up a little, then buy more

But trust me, If I got the money and the wife didn't know about it... I would probably do the same at least with some of it... I mean "NO HONEY, I WOULD NEVER WASTE MONEY on Guns!" (it's not wasting!) LOL

Youll have money but will there be anything to buy? Or anybody open to sell and ship?

FWIW I spent mine as soon as they started talking about it.

The idea of a PC Charger is interesting but I think it would be easier to get a unicorn right now.

A stainless steel Single-six sounds like and excellent place for some of that stimulus money to go! That's what I wanted when I found my used blued steel Super Single-six convertible. I used some paint remover on the grip frame and now I have what appears to be a half stainless steel revolver. I like it.

I'm all for adding new guns to the collection. But new guns isn't exactly what the relief money is intended for.

I live 2 miles from the factory where they are made, and 2 LGS are on a direct delivery setup, so it is certainly not an issue of availability, just one of resolve. I don't NEED one, I just WANT one. I think practical concerns will win out.

I know all of you know this, but I expect to see a large number of scam and fraud attempts once the checks hit the streets. Tread carefully and use your head.
