I bought another gun today, a Ruger Mini-14. Thanks to employee discounts, at $533, I couldn't pass it up. When I mentioned it to a relative, she questioned my sanity. "What do you need with another gun?"
I went on the defensive. "It's an investment. I can always get my money back."
"I buy quality stuff. The truth is, the worse the economy gets..the more chaoctic the world gets, I'm betting that I can convert my guns into cash quicker than you can convert gold coins."
