    Thumbs up This is unbelievable!

    I am on another gun forum and they had a raffle. The prize was a $1000 gift certificate to Shoot Straight (the largest gun dealer in the SE and the largest S&W dealer in the world). They sold 15 tickets for $100 a ticket. The way they determined the winner was by the Florida Lotto drawing. The Florida Mega Millions has 5 white balls and one red ball. There are only 15 numbers for the red ball. When all tickets are sold for the raffle the number on the red ball in the next drawing is the winner.

    Anyway, there was only one raffle ticket left so I bought it... yup, you guessed it, I won the gift certificate! Now for the rest of the story....

    I was in the Winn Dixie this morning picking up some cold cuts and on the way out I saw a "Goldrush" $20 scratch off ticket in the lottery ticket vending machine. I had a $20 bill I had just received in my change so I bought the ticket.... I got home, scratched off the ticket and won $500 DOLLARS!

    I guess I need to think about what I want to buy!

    So, with $1500... are you going to go for 1 S&W or 5 Taurus? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Well, I don't think I need any Taurus handguns... right now I am thinking I'll add a few more dollars and maybe I'll start with a CZ Scorpion Carbine. Then maybe something in 10 MM... S&W just announced it is offering the 500 S&W with a two and a 1/2 inch barrel. No, I don't think that is a good idea.

    I suppose I'm going to think about this for a while. So many choices, what is a fellow to do?

    You know luck, both good and bad, supposedly runs in 3's... I'd go out right now and head for the nearest casino. (Try boxing 26 on the Roulette wheel...)

    I think I am glad to admit I have NO IDEA what you are saying there... boxing 26 on the Roulette wheel. ... that mean I need to work on my right? This like American Gladiator from back in the day?
