    I never watch TV now so it would be no sacrifice.

    Go to the library and check out a book. Use the computer and get on hulu or stream via netflix. There are lots of options for entertainment. So the TV would be a good choice.

    Heck, our family would probably be better for not having it anyway!

    I would get rid of the TV and keep the gun.

    The old CRT's maybe, they could do some serious damage if you smash the screen over their head, New TV's not so much

    Yep. I'd sell the TV first in a heartbeat, but I couldn't survive without a computer. Of course, I have numerous computers which have no monetary value that I obtained for free from people who didn't want them anymore. The largest unavoidable cost of computing is paying for internet access.

    Would I give up internet access or my last gun first? The gun.

    Since I got clipped last year this is a no brainer. Take the TV and spend more time with my wife in the bedroom

    TV's are a cheap commodity. It's more expensive to replace my Glock than a TV.
