Go out and buy the most expensive, most impractical, highest and sexiest pair of heels I could find and a dress just as provocative to go with. Jewelry to put the whole thing together and a suit for JD.
Then I'd book us a flight (with a stop off at my parents to drop off the kiddo) and tickets to an opera somewhere far away where dress actually means something.
A honeymoon suite, room service and at least one whole no-limit weekend of spoiling my marriage and my husband.
In order to do that I would probably also have to correspond this trip with some other shooting course or class but that would be okay too (as long as the instructor wouldn't mind us making out when not on the firing line and/or flirting with each other on occasion).
Yep... that's what I'd do.

I damn sure would NOT set my alarm to get up in the morning and go to work!!!!!
The "news media" has ceased being the watch dog of the people and has become the apologist for an irresponsible government.

After taking care of parents & family, a hefty donation to "wounded warriors" and a couple other worthy and select charities I would work at getting squared away for retirement.
1) Build my custom, high security, low maintenance, fireproof, tornado proof, energy efficient home on about 25 - 30 acres of wooded land that butts up against a National Forest.
Terra-Dome Earth Sheltered Buildings
2) Get an Earth Roamer!

3) Set aside a substantial cash reserve.
4) Put remainder of money to work earning more with careful planned and diversified investments.
5) Travel the USA!

Don't have much debt, but it all gets paid off.
Help out some family members.
Buy that land out in the country, big enough for my personal rifle/pistol range. Build a very, very solid, energy efficient house on it. Not too big, the garage/shop would be at least as big as the house, and also very, very, very solidly built.
Stock up on everything, and have a big "root cellar" to put it all in.
How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual; as a trustworthy & productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised and taken care of.
Booze and broads. Spend it all in 4 months with my newest and closest best friends!
WOW... I'm adding one of those to my list... sorry, Bark'n... one question though... how do they not spill the wine?2) Get an Earth Roamer!

I'd get a bunch of land capable of setting up my 1000 yd shooting range without disturbing a neighbor. Then I'd build my dream house which would include a vault room under the master BR for my new, rather extensive gun collection and ammo supply :)

I just heard on the radio today in the Metro Detroit area, of a little five year old girl, who has a brain disorder, that causes the individual to have seizures, mostly at night, and they often cause the person to stop breathing, hence they die. The mother said its so rare only around 500 people worldwide have it.
She (the mother), was asking the radio station to advertise for her the fact they are having a garage sale to try to raise $13,000.00 for a special dog, that is trained to sense and alert when the child is having one of the seizures at night, (the mother currently sleeps with her daughter EVERY NIGHT), so she can revive her daughter, in the event she stops breathing.
I would buy one of those dogs for them.
Then I would take care of my business.
They say the children rarely make it past 10. I'm gettin' choked up again,, gotta go.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Get an Earth Roamer too! I love that thing. Of course it would be equipped with a gun safe and other advanced weapons systems.
Then a couple of H&K's, a nice jewelry gun like one of those Kimber Ultra Carrys, and some super cool gun leather to carry it with.
Then I would go blow off a whole bunch of super hot ammo. The expensive kind. Just for target practice.
Travel around in the ER to all sorts of different firearm schools.
I think that's about as far as 2.5 would go these days.
