My retirement Gift to myself

I have decided that when I retire I get to sell my leave I have saved up so I think I'm going to buy myself a gift. I want a GA Precision rifle so bad I cant see straight. Don't know what caliber I want yet but I want to use it to harvest large game at 600-800 yards So I think its going to be a short action short magnum caliber. I have a custom .308 and plan to use it prairie dog hunting 600-800 but large game would be a max of 500 yards with a .308. Here is the model I want. Don't drop your Jaw at the price...When you get a guarantee accuracy rifle your going to pay for it cause if it don't shoot what they claim you send it back no questions asked.

Very nice Henry. I think you've earned it and then some.

LOL I wish you were my wife because mine doesnt see it the same way you do. She was like HOW MUCH? She was like then you have to buy a scope for it too. Thats going to be another $2000. I explained I would buy another $1000 scope and her response was ok....Give me the credit card cause I am going to buy $5000 in manolo blanix shoes. And of course she suggests that I sell one rifle to get the other. I explained that it would never happen.

She has me figured out already after only being married since May....She came back about an hour later and was like one more thing...You know you are going to spend another $300 on developing bullets for it with all the powders and bullets you will have to try out.

Man she knows me like a book.

Man...You Need to MAN UP.....Tell that wife you are going to do whatever......she wants you to do....

You know I have been married for a long time....I know how to play the game...

Go out and buy her 1 pair of nice shoes and have flowers delivered to her at work....Not At Home....At Work...then you are a hero and go buy the rifle....Works Every Time.....
(Well...Almost Every Time)

Good luck with the new toy...It is a nice one, and you will enjoy it forever...hey...you only live once.

Tell your wife when she retires, she can buy whatever she wants...as long as it costs the same...LOL...

I agree with Steve. I've only been married for 4 years but I've learned that a happy wife = a happy life. When I buy a toy I make sure to butter up the wife with a new purse or shoes, and it's worked so far. Now for that amount you are going to need a lot of butter.

I, for one, wouldn't much appreciate shoes, handbags or flowers,
especially if he was providing them for brown nosing purposes. I think she'd probably prefer cash and a no questions asked or eyebrows raised attitude.
The husbeast and I had a working dollar-for-dollar arrangement that financed quite a few fun toys, like my 104 year old treadle sewing machine, fabric, and Yarn. Lots of yarn.

We have an arrangement...equal parts jewelry and guns.I buy a gun she gets a jewel and vice versa. When we die, the Daughter gets the Jewels and the Son gets the guns. They can trade back and forth as desired. My wife's Dad did that and it worked well.

If I told my wife I was buying a $5,000 gun she would be pissed off that it wasn't full auto.

When I retired from the USAF a few years back my wife gave me an XD45 bi-tone tactical. Yesterday for my birthday she gave me the final part for my M4 build, the barrel. I don't have to "butter her up" for anyhing since she gets me what I need as I need it.

nice toy, congrats.
my wife hasn't said a thing about my gun purchases, which have been over 350 in the past 35 years. but I'm such a cheap skate I couldn't bring myself to spend over 4k on any rifle. the most I ever spent was $2500 in the mid ninetys for a barrett single shot 50bmg. fired 10 rds thru it and sold it within 2 weeks. Damn thing made my brain bounce around in my head.
