Business is picking back up. And my boss told me (I don't know if it's true, we'll see) that if I stay at the shop, he'll make sure to give me enough hours to where I won't have to find another job. Fine by me. He told me at the minimum, he was going to work me 10 hours a week (which is all i really have to have). That's $70, enough to cover my gas, tithe, and put a little up for emergencies (and ammo). Now, we'll see if he sticks to his word. Well, might not be a new job like I was praying for, but it is good enough (if the boss don't back out of it).

    I'm gonna do some math, but if I could save $70 a week till I turn 21, I could buy a lot of pistols after splitting the savings in half. I'll have a number in a bit lol

    I made $1.65 per hour at my first job.

    When I went out on my own I was making $5 an hour and felt rich.

    IF I saved $70 a week, till I was 21, and then split the total in half so that some remained in savings, I could buy $4550 worth of pistols. That would be something, the guys at the gun store would flip.

    I'm getting $7 an hour. Cash. I don't make enough in a year to have to report it on taxes. I'm a mechanic, if it shows how to do it on alldata, or I know how to do it, I can and will do it. Usually I do brake jobs and oil changes, clean the shop, all that stuff. I added it up on day, my boss makes about $70 per brake job I do, after paying me.[:(]

    Divide that by 2 you need ammo,, divide by 3 if you chose a pricey ammo gun..

    I think I will stay away from the pricier ammo. Ammo is something that is always in my head when choosing a gun, and it can be a deal breaker or a deal maker for me.

    It pays off. I know that when all worldly riches are gone, that is one investment I cannot lose.
