Fun Spot: Interview with a Gun Owner

Lady Interviewer: Do you shoot often?

Man: Yes.

Lady Interviewer: How much do you shoot at the target range?

Man: Around 3 boxes of ammo give or take.

Lady Interviewer: How much does a box cost?

Man: Roughly $30.00 at a sporting goods store

Lady Interviewer: And how long have you been target shooting?

Man: 35 years.

Lady Interviewer: You are shooting about four times a month at a cost of about $150.00, so that’s $600 each month and you’re spending about $7,200 per year, right?

Man: Correct.

Lady Interviewer: If in 1 year you spend $7,200 on ammo, not accounting for inflation, 35 years puts your spending roughly $252,000; correct?

Man: Correct.

Lady Interviewer: Did it ever occur to you that if you never shot guns for the past 35 years you’d have enough money for a brand new Ferrari?

Man: Do you shoot?

Lady Interviewer: No.

Man: So, where’s your Ferrari?
