Just Spent About $650!
« on: September 10, 2010, 08:09:24 PM »
Not that I really "wanted" to do it, but figured it would be best..........

Just spent $599 for the Garmin Astro 220 with a DC40 collar for the Mongo man plus about $45 for a protective case and a memory card for the Garmin. O0  Man!  I didn't want to part with that money!  :'(  But if it'll help me keep track of the little bugger and not lose him, then so be it.  O0

There went my gun money for the next few months!  >:( :tickedoff

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.

Well it's cheaper than a new pup and quicker than waiting another year to get it in the woods. Good investment over all. You can even use it on the kid when he strikes out by himself LOL.
 Now that you done laid down the cash, the pup probaly won't leave your side, or at least that would be my luck.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Yeah, Mongo will hunt nice and close since you spent all that money! I think it was a really good investment.

By the time you figure out a gun you don't already own, you will be trying to find room to squeeze it into your safes.  O0  Any gun you don't already own will be on a really short list.

I have had my 220 with the dc30 for a year now and if you turn a dog loose, it is worth it!! I have read plenty of reports saying the dc40 isn't near the quality as the dc30. I have not had a lick of trouble with mine. It has been coverd in muud 20 times over, in plenty of creeks and ponds.  I love the whole idea and am thankfull I spent the money. I can't say enough good about mine!!

That's funny, the stuff I've read says that the 40 is the same quality as the 30, but they fixed alot of the stuff that people were griping about with the 30's.

Quite a few people on the ukc coonhound board have voiced disdain for the 40. Go have a read for details.

Read the reports and did the research before I got it.  That's the reason I got the 40 instead of the 30.  The 220 & the 30 was $100 cheaper than the 220 & the 40.  As I said, the quality is the same, but complaints with the 30 were addressed & fixed.

People are going to gripe whenever anything "new & improved" comes out and they aren't going to like the change.  That's never going to change.

With that much money, you could have bought me a chihuahua!

To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I saw a girl in a local 5-Star gas station yesterday that had a chihuahua puppy she was holding as she was checking out.  I told her and the cashier, "I've seen squirrels bigger than that thing."   ;D ;D ;D

Last weekend at the boy's football game, I saw another little chihuahua puppy.  I pointed in the direction of the dog and told the wife to look at it.  She said, "Where?".   :roll:  "See the man & woman over there?"  "Yeah."  "See the leash on the man's leg?  Well follow it down and look hard.  You'll see something about the size of a rat down at the bottom."  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
