My son approached me today. Seems he is a bit concerned about being able to buy an AK-74 and all the accoutraments before a ban goes into effect. He is only 18 and does not have enough money to buy everything, so first he asked me to give him the money. (After all, it is a noble cause.) When that didn't work, he asked if he could borrow the money.
Let me see, $1000 at 1.5%/month for a year.....

1K? That's a pricey AK.
I live for others and I answer to God and sometimes to my wife too.
can you financially do it? if you can why not? Not like he's some stranger off the street. sit down and write a little thing up about the payments, sign it and tell him to go get it.
While you're at it, can I have some too?

Only 1.5% per month? I thought your name was "Armando the Hulk", and it was 15% per month......
$1,000 probably a nice set-up! You're a good Dad!

Don't do it... let him wait 4 years. Then he is the right age to own one, and the political storm will have blown over ;-)

I loaned my dad $6k at no interest. In retrospect I should have charged him since he's been dragging his feet paying me back.

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
Oh, just do it! This may be his only chance, when you think about it. The Obama administration can be quoted saying that they intend to make the ban permanent. That would mean NEVER AGAIN could we buy these things....GOD....

Something to think about...
When I was a kid, I remember seeing old Enfield rifles stuck in a wooden pickle barrel, any which way they fit. At that time, they were 12 dollars a piece.
Me and one of my buddies even got tossed out of a Woolworths store because we each picked up a rifle,stuck a rather long bayonet on it, and started sword fighting each other. Lucky for us, they weren't very sharp.
I remember reading the Shotgun News, and seeing pages full of Mosins for 19.00, Enfields for 20 and any kind of Mauser you can imagine, back then they could barely give them away. British Webley .455's and Nagant pistols were so cheap that no one wanted them.
AR's stayed at 269, no one much cared for them. My first Chinese SKS, which I still have was 69 bucks. A dealer at work bought a case of them for 49.00 each and made a killing selling them to us.
AK's started coming in then, you could have one in a box, with the cleaning kit, sling, oil bottle and 3 30 round mags...priced to compete with the AR at 269.00.
I bought a pristine Jap War trophy, a bring back from a vet, for a whopping 25 bucks. It had the aircraft sights, the Imperial Mum was perfect, the rifle was very tight. I bought a rifle like the one that shot JFK, an Italian Carcano in 6.5, for 19.00. The first box of ammo I bought for it was Norma, a box of 20 for 20 bucks...the ammo cost more than the rifle. My wife threw a fit.
I said all of that, to say this...
Guns will never be cheaper than they are now. Every time some communistic,socialistic, anti-American heathen passes a law that hinders your ability to own or operate a firearm in any way, it will result in an increase in price somehow. If they cant figure out a way to eliminate ownership of guns, they will hit the next best thing....the ammo in which they use.
Your kid is a cut above the rest. If he is aware enough to understand that he may not ever get a chance to own a piece of History, if he understands the rocky road that we are all about to travel whether we want to or not, then he is deserving of that rifle.
Get it for him. He will cherish it, always remember it, and may someday be fortunate enough to at least show it to your grandson and explain to him how things used to be.
If my boy came to me with the same question, I'd not tell his mother and would buy it for him as a Christmas gift. No interest no strings, but two:
1) Do not make me regret this or get me in trouble with mom., If you do and you don't kill yourself, I will kill you. And if you do kill yourself I will bring you back if it means sticking my hand up your ars and moving your lips around puppet style. Then I'll kill you, again.
2) When ever I ask I get to borrow it to play with.
It would be a handshake deal, old man to newly minted man.
