OK, so I am tired of being a burden on my hunting team. Every year its "who gets to piggyback my butt out to where I want to be and then have to travel from there to where they want to be". That or I borrow someones truck. I hate doing that because everytime a branch scrapes down the side of it I feel so guilty, even though the same thing would happen if they were driving and they wouldn't care (doesn't matter, it's someone elses truck and I can't stand the thought of damage being done on my account). I have $2000 saved up. On Craigslist right now I could get a low miles Polaris Sportsman or Yamaha Grizzly for around $3200. I get a monthly allowance of $150. Sounds funny for a grown man to have an allowance, but we do this so that neither me or my wife feel guilty for spending family money on ourselves. Option 1: I sell my beloved HK45 with only 100 rounds through it (would break my heart), and an unfired 12ga Stoeger STF3000 (my only shotgun which I have no use for just always felt like a guy should have a shotgun in his arsenal). That should get me around $1200. I get a good atv at a low price and could save up for a carry gun for hunting next season, but probably not another HK. Option 2: I keep my babies and save until the summer just before hunting season and try to buy then. There will be more competition and probably less availability meaning the prices will be higher and I won't be able to get what I really want. Option 3: I buy as much silver as I can afford and hope the market price shoots up the way I expect it to this summer when gas and food prices skyrocket. If it works, I keep my babies and get a good machine. If it doesn't, I haven't lost anything but will have to wait until next year to stop being a burden. Need some outside perspective.
