Im in the military and I manage my money really well and I was able to basically use the interest I get off of a CD to cover the payments on a loan I got to buy an AR-15. Yes, its pretty much free. Anyways, question is will girls think its weird that I now own an assault rifle? I'm not like a paranoid redneck or anything. Its just an awesome gun <3
I grew up in the country, surrounded by flea, disease infested rats --- so that being said, my family and all of my neighbors owned either shotguns or handguns to kill the flea/disease infested rats who frequently traversed our dwellings. That said, my ancestory knows much about pulling triggers. . . .
nah your good at least this girl don't think so, I happen to think men in the military are quite sexy especially when the hold guns ha ha I don't know maybe its cus I grew up around guns. its really w.e if you ask me
No comment on the girl part, but if you think that is "managing your money really well" I'd be a little worried.
The highest percents I've seen recently for CDs are pretty terrible. Under 3% for a 5-year is about the best I've seen. Keep in mind the average inflation rate for the US is a little over 3% per year. So your account goes higher, but you can buy less with it every year.
More importantly, if you got a loan (not being given money from your parents, but a real loan) your interest rate on the loan is higher than that of the CD. So it really makes no sense to give the bank money at 3%.
If you like it, and some girl doesn't, tell her to eff off if it's that big of a deal to her. Don't be afraid to exercise your right to bear arms! Guns are probably one of the most enjoying hobbies you can have, and the skills you learn with them could save yours or someone else's life one day. Thank you for you service!
