Nothing wrong with using credit wisely. I've done it a few times with guns or other large purchases and paid it off within a few months. I'm not going to let $20-$30 in interest get between me and a purchase that is $100-$200 less than the item typically goes for.

I let the bank finance my last car purchase, it would have cost me more to take the money out and pay cash.

Not something to do on a regular basis, but at times it is the smart move.

I don't know about you, but I've never had a credit card company force me to charge anything or send me a card without my consent.


Yep,CCs don't jump out of your wallet and rack up balances by themselves.

Most of that will be shot up by Christmas. I am getting out of hunting and shooting completely.

Eat your hearts out boys...somehow I have ended up with a wife who is not only highly intelligent, kind, spiritual, very gainfully employed, fit, and drop-dead beautiful, but who also whispers things in my ear like, and this is a direct quote, "Honey, you can spend all the money you want on guns and ammunition."

Did I mention she's drop-dead beautiful? Oh, by the way, she has absolutely no interest in tagging along hunting with me.

By the way the rifle I would purchase would be a kimber montana!!


I've taken out 3 or 4 BassPro shop cards for about the same purpose. They have a store wide 10% sale from time to time then offer another big discount if you take out a C/C in the store. I take out the card in the store, get instant approval and buy the big ticket item. Pay the card off and cancel it immediately.

Credit companies have never screwed anyone. Only people dumb enough to buy things they can't pay for get "screwed" because they don't stick to the terms they agreed to.
Getting a credit card to buy a rifle is stupid. Save money and pay cash. It feels good to actually own something. The borrower is slave to the lender.
The interest rate means nothing.
