Obviously you don't know much about guns. Guns not only retain their value, but also increase depending on the firearms you own. You don't lose money with guns, you lose money by not having guns to protect yourself.
Buy a new Glock, keep it a few months, even a few years. You won't recover your money unless you find someone ignorant on value. Not picking on the Glock. The same would be true for most other common guns.

For the most part I won't look at a firearm less than 30 years old. My last purchase was a Colt 1911 manufactured in 1918. The value will continue to increase.

<quoted text>39.6%, I max out Social Security contributions every year anyway so wouldn't be hit with that and Florida doesn't tax income.

I'm sure there's an island or two that can be purchased for just a few million. Why would you want that? Always with the boat to do anything.
I have no aversion to boats. I have an aversion to the government taking on the roll of Robin Hood, and butchering or ignoring our constitution.

I figure if I buy a private island, start my own country, word its constitution to negate the issues the US has seen over the years, and leave political correctness behind, I can live in a way that would make the US Founding Fathers proud, even if its not on US soil.

I have no aversion to boats either, just don’t want to deal with one every time I need to leave my home.

It’s probably nearly impossible to start your own country on an island. Though if you could forget a constitution you could be emperor.

Lol. I hear ya. I was kinda hoping to get an island big enough to be mostly self sufficient. I realize there would have to be a few trips for initially stocking meat animals and garden/farm supplies, then the occasional supply run after that. But for the most part, day to day life would be on dry ground.

It would be a very small country. But I don't think being Emperor would be for me, or accomplish anything long term. A working model legacy would be much more important. I guess if I wanted to take out my frustrations in some way, I could adopt a national flag depicting a middle finger saluting Obama.

I have to win the powerball first. The odds aren't great, but I can fantasize about it.

It sounds perfectly normal.

I think this concept is something almost all Americans have thought of even if it were just a passing fancy.

It is regulation and urbanization that brings it to mind.

And there it is. If you are against robbing from the rich, to give to the poor, you are mentally ill, greedy, and emotionally retarded, according to Spocko. Spocko is not alone in that mentality unfortunately.
Imagine someone like Spocko making determinations on background checks for a firearms purchase. Will you be deemed mentally ill?
1. I don’t know what Topix did to my post. Here‘s how it appeared:
<quoted text>Robin Hood is a hero to people who arenÂ’t mentally ill, or have criminal mentalities. If youÂ’re not institutionalized in one of those places, then you should be.
People: Those sickos are so hooked on greed and are overgrown children, going through life screaming,‘ME-ME-ME!’, and ‘NOBODY matters except ME-ME!’

and here’s how I typed it:

No, you're only a loser making unfounded claims about something you know little about. Instead of taking your computer to somebody that knows something about it, you jump to paranoid conclusions. I've used Norton for years. Never had a problem with them. If on a rare occasion my computer acts up, I take it to the Apple store and they fix it right up for me. They explain what was causing the problem and give me advice to avoid problems in the future.
See, that's the smart thing to do.
So, explain how a company contacted me, telling me that I should send them one of my files, WHICH THEY NAMED, so they can check it for security reasons!
HOW WOULD THEY KNOW THE NAME OF THE FILE UNLESS NORTON LET THEM GET THAT INFORMATION OR SENT IT TO THEM?
It's one of my most important files, containing information which I use for Topix.
INTELLIGENT PEOPLE know that what used to be paranoia is now a legitimate warning, as the traitors in the Federal Reserve Corp. prepare to make the U.S. a part of the New World Order.
YOU are the FOOL, living in a fantasy world where nothing is wrong and we should all ignore all warnings.

I seriously think you need the help of a professional. I've been talking with black helicopter people for over 30 years, but have never seen a case like yours.

Did you ever ask yourself that if Norton is in your computer looking at your files, that they would have a way to make copies of your folders?

There are 315 million people in this country. Do you really think you were selected by Norton or some government agency to spy on? That's about as ridiculous as George Bush listening to your phone calls.

I'm the parasite? Lmao! I work for a living and pay taxes that feed, clothe, house, and transport the parasites.
Do you really want to go there with the criminal mentality? Statistics show Democrats to be over represented in the criminal department. I am not a Democrat.

Call your psychiatrist now! Those are voices from your head. He will likely up your meds.
If they have access to your files, why would they call to ask you to send it to them?

American politicians don't send jobs anywhere--American companies do. Why? To make products for less money. Why? Because the American consumer won't support their fellow American workers. We would rather throw them under the bus to get the same products only for less money.
That's why Wal-Mart is number one. They not only have a wide selection of merchandise, but they have the cheapest priced merchandise as well. If the tide ever turns where the American consumes number one priority is to buy American, that's when you'll see more jobs coming to the US.
It has little to do with policy. When we have a government that forces corporations to stay in the US and isolates us from foreign imports, that's when we've become a communist or dictator state. We don't do that in the free world.
My Gawd you’re ignorant, and a true parasite. I knew it was a waste of time to try and explain anything to you.
I wrote:
“Jobs have been sent overseas ever since REPUBLICAN PARASITE NIXON ‘OPENED’ CHINA TO THE WEST…
And it was REPUBLICAN TRAITOR RONALD REAGAN who opened the floodgates to Mexico, and there go more of our jobs.”

People:
Conservatives keep defending the wealthy, big corporations, and traitors, and at the same time, attacking their own classes and families.
If you’re out of a job or home, and your parents are conservatives, then they’re your worst enemies. They chose to side with the Elite and sabotage your future.
Have the guts to stop blaming liberals for your skrood-up family.

You sicko conservatives just idolize them, and want to make sure they can afford gold faucets and designer drugs so you vote for those who give them tax breaks, while people in your own neighborhood are slowly starving to death.
Don't worry, people. Scumbags like this poster will get what's coming to them. After all, they also make deals with the devil.
Your warped perception of reality indicates that you need psychiatric attention immediately. Guess we know at least one poster that is not going to pass a background check for a gun purchase.
Your jealousy of people who are successful has gone way overboard. You really should work on taking responsibility for your own success and actions. Spend less time worrying about how other people utilize their freedom.
You are obviously an unhappy person. I see the socialist mindset is working out well for you.
