    Do 'em both now. You'll be happier that you have it done. Maybe you'll get a volume deal.

    No, I can't afford both now, and all it would save me is $12 - the return shipping price. I do not think he gives volume discounts.

    Just use some of that big lump of cash from the sale. It's only money.

    The HK sale covers the cost of the new Walther - have to pay the credit card back - that was the only reason I sold it.

    Well, OK, but I think you're being way to anal about all this. Load up that credit card, man, it's the American way. Stimulate the economy.

    Shipwreck,
    I'm very experienced in credit card dept. Remember I have two almost grown daughters and a dearly beloved that has been training them all their life. If you can avoid it, I say "Good Job". Scooter may be dead on right.

    Only $ we owe is on the house, and 1 year left on the car - we get points on our credit card and use them to get gift cards - a $50 card every 2 months - we get to pick where. Or, you can save the points. Anyway, we charge EVERYTHING - but we pay it off 100% at the end of every month. So, we really have no credit card dept, and I wanna keep it that way.

    Man, if you can do that you'll be in great shape. Start saving $50 a month for kids college and don't touch it for 18 years and you'll have plenty.

    Save for the kid's college? Man, do U know how much college is now - even that pre-paid program U can do - when the kid is a child - its like $50k.

    We live where A&M is. Wife and I decided that we'll let our future kid live at home free as a student. Other than that - he/she is on their own

    I paid off student loans. We're not rich. I'm more worried about retirement

    Good way to go, especially while you've got some years left to invest. Wished I'd started one 20 years ago.

    Wink

    Well, they got my slide earlier this week. Now the hardest part is the damn waiting. I want it now. NOW! NOOOOWWWW!

    I know we have an instant gratification society - and I am as guilty as the next guy for that.

    Doesn't change how I feel. I want it NOW!
