Hi all, Here's the deal: we live on 5 acres in the country. I've been on the property for 8 years, my wife for the past 2. In the past I had a tractor that I used to mow the field, grade the driveways and move stuff around. It went away in the divorce, and I've been tractorless for the past 4 years. I've been able to get by (the fields haven't been mowed since 2008), but my present wife is into gardening and homesteading in a way that my previous wife wasn't. We're getting by, but a tractor with a front end loader and a brush mower would sure come in handy. There are a few used tractors out there in the $3-5,000 range that would fit the bill and help us out with everything. The question is, should I sell off part of my firearms collection to buy a tractor? I'd be selling 6 guns and a couple stripped lowers; that plus the money I was going to use to buy a suppressor next month plus a little extra from the budget would get us a nice little 2wd diesel tractor. I'd still have a minimum complement of firearms once I sold off the "extras" in my collection. The tractor would, of course, get us closer to being self-sufficient on our little patch of ground. What would you do? Sell the guns and buy a tractor, or keep the guns and save up for a year to buy a tractor?
