If you took a gig in a gun shop...

Lets say you took a gig in the largest gun shop in the world, literally 10k + guns in stock, what would be the first thing you bought? :-)

A good .22,
A good 9mm,
A good 5.56,
A good 12 gauge;

Then put my focus on a *great* supply of ammo which would be my major focus from that point forward.

I'd probably buy a bottle of Hooten & Young whiskey, as it is well known for improving your aim.

.45 AMT Hardballer Longslide. Last year I found a 1980 one in a Colorado Springs gun shop for $500. I didn't buy it.

A phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range.

I'd pick up the new stocks for my 870, then the rest of the gear I want for reloading.

Good Luck

Yeah, I was stupid. With the shop being not too far from Ft Carson, I'm sure it's long gone.

I've never been a "own a crap ton of guns" person. I'd use my employee discount for ammo - especially .300BLK.

Maybe a modern, Long Range Precision Rifle, but that's about it.

Do they sell NODs?

And for your sins, you will never see another one. Do you know the best time to buy such a gun?
