    I know how people feel about thier tax dollars being spent.I live on Social Security.I have worked and paid my fair share like all.I became ill and no longer can work.It can happen to anyone here.I dont feel guilty as it is something I earned.I even purchased extra protection through disability insurance which I highly advise you to do.

    I want you to know I put a snub nosed Taurus CIA model .357 on layaway today.I went to burn some rounds for some stress relief and hang out with the old guys and gals.It is suprising sometimes to see who is armed.I been wanting a new pistol but it is hard sometimes to come up for the extra money.I put down half and they ordered it and I get it next month when I get paid.At least you know your tax dollars were spent on arming an old man who will protect the innocent.I know Taurus aint a S&W but it meets my requirements.I love a small wheelgun and own another snub .357 but I love the versatility of the platform

    Good way to see it spent. Beats the hell out of going to some welfare case illegal obama lover.

    The difference between you and the leaches, you worked and earned your SS while contributing to society. Leaches don’t work OR contribute to society. Buy what fancies you, you've earned it ;).

    first.. SSI is not our tax dollars..its yours and your former employers..at least thats the way it was set up to be...

    second....CUDOS for YOU!!! living on SSI is really living on a tight budget! the fact you were still able to squeeze out the funds for the purchace says a lot for you!!

    third..did I mention CUDOS for you??

    Same here. Hit 63, life caught up to me. SS and disability. Like you, I purchased supplemental insurance, so it helps until I turn 65. (BTW skullfr, love your avatar!) But still, looking at at least one more gun purchase before then. Don't get to shoot often, but love it when I do.

    Thanks guys.and Carver I looked at them but mounting a holster has One drawback.If you are thrown from the chair you are defenseless.It has happened alot and punks are known for sneaking up and throwing a person out of thier char.I use a CCW fanny pack.At least it stays with me.I have a bag on back of my chair I carry a mini draco in.I need to get a underneath bag to move it closer.

    Sew a holster, or rivit it, to the bottom of the seat. And remember, there are lots of us out here that have no income other than what we get from the government. I am a retired Postal Worker, and past 63, so I get a SS check as well. When I retired I was able to keep my Blue Cross/Blue Shield medical Ins, and I was allowed to keep my Life Ins also. That was back in '97 when I first retired. Paying for both only took about 1/3 of my retirement check. Now my retirement check is only $100 a month, after payments for medical, and life! The Medical Ins, and Life Ins, just keep going up!

    If you're on SSI be careful about assets. I'm on SSI too and had to keep my assets under $2000 (for singles) so when I get something new I have to sell off the old. Car and house doesn't count as assets.
