This is a discussion on After winning the lottery within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; One of my first purchases...
If I won the lottery my first action (after hiring a financial consultant and figuring out how to protect all that money) would be to set up a fund with the purpose of fighting gun control and furthering gun rights.
My second action would be to hire a private investigator to find good people who are struggling through a financial bad spot in their lives and anonymously pay off their bills. No fanfare, no contact, just their bills paid to give them a chance to restart.
Then I would start looking at building a house complete with an indoor range and an entire room as a gun safe and see if I could fill it with many gun purchases.
Unfortunately there are many gun owners who will still shop at Wal Mart even though they know Wal Mart partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety just because it is convenient and they can save a few bucks.

I'd setup a fund for people with Cystic Fibrosis that struggle with the cost of that disease. I'd also setup a fund for people that have CF and need a lung transplant.

Unfortunately, in order to win the lottery you have to buy tickets.
So we keep on keepin' on as we are, thanking God for all of our many blessings.
BUT: If we DID buy tickets and if we DID win, Gramps says we would have to disappear and then could decide what to do with the money. The disappearance part is to save your sanity from the hundreds of contacts you get then and forever after from people who try to get that money from you in one way or another.
But it's fun to play Let's Pretend!
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
My first gun purchase would be a 3” Combat Python.

If I won the Lotto, they would find me dead in the gutter about a week later with a smile on my face.
If I won the lottery, my wife and I would invest wisely in income funds and disappear from public view. Remember what my Uncle always said: "Where there is a will, there is a relative!"

I am content with my life style. Vast sums of money would be nettlesome at this point. I would find worthwhile charities to donate too.
