    This is an every day struggle for me. I honestly may have posted this exact thread title in the past..

    I buy and sell a lot of stuff and have a bunch of $$$$ hanging out in my PayPal account just begging to be spent on something awesome. I'm considering buying a CZ Shadow 2 or starting another AR build (probably 6.5 Creedmoor) or buying truck parts. There can be only 1!

    What say you fine people? If truck parts is more your thing, what would you personally get, and why?

    I could also be nice and buy my wife something for her 4runner..

    Guns have better residual value, no?

    As a fellow buyer and seller of random shit... I'm pretty relaxed about buying and selling tools and firearms... They hold their value so well that if it was an impulse buy... I'm good.

    Car parts and electronics... Different story, I have a 67 camaro full of cool toys to prove that....

    Buy a gun, and with the change, buy some 3m vinyl and wrap something on your truck...

    Pass on the vinyl wrap, but I get your point. I have many, many guns.. if I go that route it has to be something bragworthy. Considering adding to the CZ family with a TS Orange or a Shadow 2...

    A little of this and a little of that.
    Go with truck parts/mods. At least that’s what I’d do if I was in your shoes.

    Naw, she's pretty reasonable and realizes that no matter the persuasiveness of those around me, I am ultimately the one who's the idiot.

    Bought the wife a roof basket for her 4runner, going to paint her OEM roof rack black and then mount this basket. Bought some thin aluminum grips for my SP-01 and some torx grips screws. If she really likes the roof rack I'll take the dive and go for a new front bumper.

    :spy:....... @caboose gotta watch the political posts per forum rules. They usually do not end well. Just a heads up. (not a mod here)

    Interesting video none the less. It will be great added evidence indicting the fools on federal conspiracy to commit terrorism charges. Goes without saying ANTIFA is on the Fed front burner right now.:thumbsup:

    Well hope I didn't violate more concerned with people being aware of potential terrorism. Thanks for the heads up though.

    I agree you can never have to many weapons but just watch out that they don't get lost in a terrible boating accident while enroute to your fishing camp on Bayou LaLoutre as mine did.:rolleyes:
