So I have my eye on a rifle. I’m getting it in .308. Cheaper ammo and slightly less recoil then the .300wm or .338 lapua brethren. I can get the rifle for $1200, sans glass. The glass will probably be a cheapy to start with at about $500. Cabela’s has some good glass that looks very tempting. Primarily, the stuff with a built in rangefinder. Will I buy that? God no, I’d have to sell my firstborn for one!
This week has me working 11 hours of overtime in the office and probably another 10-11 hours this weekend doing database maintenance. I’m guessing about $500 in extra pay going straight to my rifle. Combined with the fact that one of our vehicles is 100% paid off, we have an extra $240 a month! I feel like a little kid at Christmas.
