Thread: Lottery win - what would you get?

    Lottery win - what would you get?

    Hi guys, presuming the highly improbable were to happen and you dropped a sizeable lottery jackpot or got lucky with a scratch card, What would you spend some of the money on - shooting wise that is?

    PS- Just over a year ago, I purchased a £5 Christmas millionaire scratch card from my local Spar shop (not a winner) A couple of days later, someone won the £1 million pounds top prize from the same Spar shop, buying the same scratch card and from the same reel of scratch cards as the one I purchased.

    First thing I'd do is buy a house for each of my sons. The rent will then get paid into a trust fund that they can access when they are 21+. So there's £600k gone but they're set up. Then pay my mortgage off so as I can go hunting when I like for what I like. There's £770k gone. That leaves £230k to have a jolly with, so maybe some land so as I can shout at Brian May "get off my land you fuzzy haired ba$tard."
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Beyond the obvious mortgage stuff and so on, and since this is imaginary and therefore a quintuple rollover, I would book that horseback moose and caribou hunt in the Yukon. I would also take the family to Canada and join them afterwards wherever they choose to hang out. Obviously I'd have arranged childcare and so on. Whilst waiting for this, I would take a few trips to Ferlach in Austria to commission a bespoke drilling, with pine martens engraved on it. And Scenes from Pierre Bear, obviously.

    My list is too long, shooting wise,defo would get a 338 lap mag, not sure scope wise, a pair of swaro 10x42 rangers and some new stalking clothing as mine stink real bad, even after a wash that smell never goes, just a little better until topped up again.

    A custom built K-like short necked 22 Hornet and somewhere within the high timber of the Appalachian escarpments to hunt wild turkey throughout the Fall with said rifle and to be assured of ZERO contact with man.

    There's a skylark in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too damn clever, I only let him out at night sometimes when everybody's asleep. I say, I know that you're there, so don't be sad. Then I put him back, but he's singing a little in there, I haven't quite let him die and we sleep together like that with our secret pact and it's nice enough to make a man weep, but I don't weep. Do you?

    I'd employ someone to write witty posts for me for a start. Regards JCS

    Boar hunting trip, and plains game trip for me, problem is I never buy a ticket so very unlikely I'm gonna win it.

    I would follow the lead of a truly rich man I got to know.

    he did not have a large mansion, he had a series of small comfortable homes well spread across North America and the Caribbean. He also has a private plane. I would do the same.

    i once asked my son the same question, and he said he would shoot and mount a panda bear! I explained that that was quite illegal - and his response was priceless - " nothing in China is illegal if you have enough money!"
