What would you buy if you had an extra 3 grand laying around?

Just unsure of which caliber. I've fondled a few, hands down sweetest revolvers made.

Stock in any company involved in virtual reality (HTC, Google, etc.). It's the next big thing.

I'd buy myself an additional $3,000 worth of financial security by keeping it in my checking account and using it for some future necessity.

I am not much into consumerism.

Oh play the game. :lol: Assume you were already completely financially secure.

Well, it would end up in the college fund. But, assuming all things are more or less paid for...I guess I would go with a TKO600 5 speed manual transmission for the corvette. I do that, and I would no longer want a newer corvette so badly...

An intelligently acquired coin collection adds to one's financial security. I do recommend insurance if you want to keep your coins around to view and study.

don't know the year of that les paul '59 reissue
just searched for an image using that term
if i had the spare $ to fund such a purchase, i would have to play it first to make sure it sounded and played great ... would then likely replace the pickups with OX4s if there was enough from the windfall still unspent


i'm guessing you're a VH fan
admire his abilities. unfortunately, my 'skills' tend to be more aligned with slowhand ... emphasis on the 'slow'
i do happen to own a shredder guitar. a san dimas charvel model 5A. it sports the autographs of most of the shredder era guitarists except VH and Guthrie Govan. had no idea it would become an extremely collectible instrument when i started asking guys to sign it
if i were able to play that style, i would contact Scott Splawn at Splawn amplification (Dallas, NC) and ask him to craft THE amp for that style. he loves and plays that music style and began building amps from scratch after becoming known for modifying marshalls to mimic VH's amp

I'd invest it in equipment for one of my two businesses. I'm in need of a dry ice machine for shipping of my perishables for one thing. Tired of purchasing the dry ice and the nearest vendor is 40 minutes away.

Also wouldn't mind a silent air compressor in the shop. I'm tired of the Sears upright that vibrates the walls when it kicks on.

Actually will be getting these two items very soon regardless of an influx of cash. But an influx of cash would be nice.

New golf clubs...from the driver down to the sand wedge. (I'd keep my putter.)

Some of my old ones actually have tape on the end near the hosel...because of fraying oin the graphite shafts.

Probably a new bag also.

And something real nice for Nancy, too...for putting up with me.

Eh, I dunno. Strippers and cocaine? I'm pretty full up on toys right now. Maybe one of those smart televisions.
