You are going to buy yet another handgun at 26? I only recently bought one...What you doin with all that ammo anyway? I buy a few rounds when it is on sale (and don't be so short sighted) it will be again and go out plink a few rounds and go home.
If you think it is bad now if you are prepping for revolution or a civil war then you will BEG! For these so called Rough times! This country has no memory of the horror that will bring.
Not to sound curmudgeony but my wife and I worked our arses off!
At 26 we were eating hand to mouth, we rented crappy places and worked 2 (EACH) minimum wage jobs all while going to and paying for college! We NEVER went to movies and bought a beat up TV and used VCR for entertainment and if lucky saved up that week to RENT A MOVIE!!!!
This was the 90's when I hear times were good! They talk about making that minimum wage $9 an hour? I thought I was making good money when I finally started making that! LOL
I think if you need "STUFF" like x-boxes, video games, Cable TV, new cars, smart phones, blah blah blah that stuff owns you!...no surprises on how broke you are.
We have more perceived "NEED" than our parents and our parents, parents...edit on 1-3-2013 by abeverage because: (no reason given)

The key is to not live beyond your means, improve your skillset, and continually look for better jobs.
Does somebody really need a new car when they could take the bus, can you live without that cellphone, do you really need credit cards?
Ammo is a good means of bartering. Being in California, any future ammo purchases in the state you will have to have a background check and be limited to a few boxes at a time. The price of ammo has incresed faster then the price of gold and silver in the last 10 years. Ammo is good for hunting and defending your property and life. There are alot of good needs for ammo. Why i need another hand gun? I never said i needed one, I need to get one for my wife. I have my own .45 and she will have her own. I cant be with her all the time. She needs her own gun.
Im not asking for SHTF, Im prepping for it just in case. I dont want the S to hit the fan but me wishing for it to not come wont stop it.
