    Exclamation What a time to be broke !

    I have found a BRAND NEW Kahr arms CW9, extra mag, box, etc.
    for $299.00. I did a double take and put my peepers against the glass. I asked to see it and started asking questions, especially about "was it new or used ?".
    Asked him what would he take for it OTD. $300.00 !!!!
    O man ! what a time to be broke !

    Say brother.....being so close to Christmas and all........I post a challenge to the membership here. Some may be in the same boat, others may be doing well. If you can find 30 members to send you a Christmas card with a $10 bill or money order, I'll send you $10 toward the cause! Find 20 members willing to go $15, and I'll put in for that as well. Find 15 members willing to go $20 for your Christmas gift this year, and I'll even do that. That's my limit, and I'm serious! How about working as a team folks? Make artz's Christmas one to remember....a group forum Christmas present, and I'm sure the next time this member has extra, it will go to support the forum.
    C'mon folks. No joke. It's family.
    artz Christmas card mass mailing apply here:

    Well, the reason there are good deals out there right now is because just about everybody is broke, and if they're not, they have at least cut way back on splurging on the extras.

    Thats a neat idea RamRod. I'll take the number 29 slot. I think artz himself should take number 30, since God helps those who help themselves and all.

    Gee, thanks. You're working on me, I can tell. May the Good Lord smile upon you as well this holiday season. I have the Christmas spirit....I truly feel for you, and I'll pray nonetheless.

    I actually know Artz and about some of his troubles. So RamRod, I'll sign on. This is a short on funds time of year, but I'm sure I can come up with $10 more for a friend and DC member.

    Arthur, this is just crazy enough to work. I hope it does.

    I gotta spend this Baghdad money on something, right?

    I'm in for number...what the heck number are we on, anyway?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
