My buddy bought all of the guns and I got to pick a few out for a sweet price.I have sold some stuff to fund my night vision gear and will probably sell a few more toys to free up safe space and to go into the sailboat fund.
Wish when I was single I would have bought every Colt,H&K and NFA items I could.

Re: Financial/Investments

My oldest son has been pestering me about buying a Crypto currency called Shib inu.I have been getting material for the house,working on boats and when I get time ride the bikes.
Evidently I snoozed too long.He is up thousands and the wife almost into the thousand dollar area.
Maybe they will buy me a nice Sushi dinner with the spoils.

Coal miners have been beaten down merciless as of late while the price of coal has been going higher. I'm eyeing up BTU for an entry point.

Re: Financial/Investments

Bought some FSR (Fisker)about a month ago.The other electric car stock was too rich for me.
Still dribbling money into SWPPX.It was up around 25%YTD last time I checked.

If you think EV vehicles will actually make it, you might want to take a look at RIDE...especially right now.
I might take a position in BTU on Monday. Manipulation for options expiry drove it down. Expecting a turn around on Monday.
Took a position in SIGA. So far so good.

My kids friend made about 70k on FSR and said it was under valued.He made stupid money on Tesla and sold most of it.I dont have his kind of money to drop.
I followed a friend of mine today that bought a Tesla with my bike.He was GONE in a few seconds.I was hitting 85-90 and he was gone.I doubt I would ever buy a electric bike.I like the rumble.
Im looking at a few 30 ft boats to fix up and flip.I do better with boats than the market.Lots of sweat equity but I dont worry as much.

So far so good. Jumped in yesterday morning. ARCH is moving up as well.

TGB. I'm looking for a double from here. As always, do your own research.

Re: Financial/Investments

A buddy of mine that is pretty well off said I should get a loan against my house and put it in the market because rates are so low.After losing my log home after the Obunghole years Im not financing so some bankster can profit from my loss.Peace of mind has its rewards too.
I am pondering buying some more land and building under a LLC.Im just not the gambling type or a fan of instant gratification.Set a goal and keep chipping away and when you get it you did something.Might not be the biggest,fastest or the next in thing but you earned and own it.

Yes...yes, it does. Haven't had any debt for 32 years...don't plan on ever having any ever again. Peace of mind is priceless.

Got a relative thats up to his eyeballs in debt on a few houses,new vehicles and a crap load of credit cards.He was pretty cocky a few months ago.Not so much now.Around 10k a month in payments.IF you make 15-20 k a month on a regular basis it should not be an issue.When you get loans to live the crap you see on TV and dont have enough income to cover loans that come due things go to shit quick.
Told him about Dave Ramsey.Got an attitude.An attitude from someone that has put several homes up his nose and burned a marriage and few long term relationships from lack of self control.
Not my Circus and not my Monkey as I tell the wife now.Not my kid and not my son.Not my problem.
