for my birthday, my wife gave me 200 rounds and a $50.00 gift certificate to the store where I bought my M&P.



Since I don't need ammo, what should I spend my $50 on? (or what should I apply it towards).



They're a pretty big store and have quite a good selection.



Thoughts?





Edit - MODS: I just realized this thread might be better under "Accessories" feel free to move it.

Targets, hearing protection, shooting glasses?

I vote ammo cause you can never have too much - and 200 definitely ain't enough.

I agree, when I am down to 200 rnds I feel hollow. Then again there is so much accessories out there, who knows what I would do.....lol

I agree that ammo is a good idea.



to clarify, I did already have a couple hundred round and she just doubled my supply. So I guess I am still a little low but I think my train of thought is...



... like mad212 said, I want to put it towards something I wouldn't buy on my own.



Maybe I'll look into some better eye protection or maybe a shooting glove? or save up and get a cool light attachment or extra magazines.

Silly question, but do you have the cleaning accessories that you need?





1 more magazine and some more ammo would be my choice.

+1 on the extra mag and ammo. . . . assuming you already have eyes, ears, a decent holster, spare mag holder, belt, range bag, cleaning supplies, and a legitimate safe or lockbox for when you're done using all the aforementioned.
How much was the gift certificate for again???

I vote for more ammo or a Burwell trigger job. You might not want the full boat job if you carry. YMMV

My wife got tired of listening to me biotch about the high cost of ammo all the time. She bought me a Dillon 550. I'm gonna keep her!



$50 would buy some great accessories!! Holster, mag pouches, muffs, shooting glasses, etc., etc., etc..

Since it's a gift, i'd apply to something that will last, new earmuffs, glasses, somthing the wife will see you using and enjoying for a while vs something that's expendable like ammo.
