    Hello:
    A local radio station asked if you won the lottery, what would be your first purchase?

    So far, some of the answers were:
    Pay my mother in-law to move out of town.
    Stock up my bar with the most expensive booze I could find.

    Mine would be to purchase a large gun club. Hire one of the all American's to run the club. Every weekend hold a big money shoot with an expensive car as a prize and charge normal entrance fees. I can foresee attendance like the grand every weekend.

    I'd complete the purchase of my house from the bank, which currently owns a significant portion of it.

    Not tell anyone, then Buy (2) sections of contiguous undeveloped wooded, pines, oaks and cabbage hammocks, land with natural creek or river through it, preferably creek. Put a game fence all the way around it, put in full generation system for electricity, (gen set fuel would be what is cost effective for the area), build a home in the middle of the property.

    Then build a "WTSHTF" underground shelter with provisions for 3 years.

    Then Tell the world to KMA.

    Hmmm, I was thinking about buying the Bunny Ranch or maybe a bar in the PI but on second thought, I like 391's idea better.

    Ctreay, you beat me to that LOL

    I would go to a fat farm as I would have a reason to live longer LOL

    Actually, I am not sure what I would buy, I have everything that I could possibly want, but I might buy some land in Montana or Wyoming so I could get out of Texas during the heat

    Pay off all debts, donate to local childrens hospital, pull my youngest from local school system and home school, buy new trap guns for family, purchase private lessons, and then retire with a hotel/RV and travel around as a shooting family. Sounds like fun.

    Walk out of the house and into a brand new custom diesel pusher, hit the road, see the sights, make the team, ride until I get tired of travel.

    I would pay off all my debt, and buy a 300+ acre ranch and build a sports clay range and charge affordable prices.

    Depending how big it is, I'd pay off some or most of my debt.

    Pay off the house. See to the education of my daughter, and my son if he wants a career change. Donate to some worthy causes. Buy a new truck and a few firearms. Probably continue to work until I can figure out what I want to do. All too many winners blow all their money, so I'd rather take it slow.
