    Now that its spring time, I want to buy a bicycle! My brand new one was stolen from the side of my house. Stupid me.

    EDC related though. I would buy a Lightning OTF knife and some Atwood type 1 paracord (smaller diameter than 550).

    Well as you can imagine, this wasn't just a hypothetical question. I did indeed have $50 and I ended up getting my first automatic watch.

    They are nice watches. Great choice.

    I'd spend it on a rare ribeye steak, two dirty vodka 3 olive martinis, and a tip for the bartender.

    I'd go for 2 ribeyes and an ice water, got whiskey in the flask anyway. :) still tip the bartender though.

    Tagged because I do in fact have $50 to spend, a gift voucher, though it's for a local mall so I won't be able to get everything.

    I'd get my wife a present; 3 years of unemployment has meant I've not got her a birthday or Xmas present for that long.

    I'm in the same boat as a few other guys here, unemployed and Seriously BROKE this month. :(:cry:

    $50 right now would be half a tank of gas for the truck.
    OR a night out to eat for us, with a beer or two for me thrown in.
    Depending on whether I had to be practical or not about it. ;)

    EDC related? that would be the gasoline... without that I can't leave the house, and thus have no reason to EDC anything :p :D

    Nice!

    I guess I gotta give Seiko 5s another look, didn't know they could be had that cheap!

    EDC/preparedness related, I'd spend it on consumable/expendable stuff - caffeine products, meds, quality firestarter tinder, maybe some NiteIze fastener thingies... definitely not on buying another knife, multitool or light.
    Frankly, I have most every EDC-related tools/things I need, and keep getting better at making those I don't have ;)
    Otherwise (well, anyhow) I'd get my wife a present, a writer she follows online soon has a new book out, two volumes will take a good bite out of $50.

    I would get new shoes. Been walking whole winter with broken ones. Other might be new work trousers.
