>**Excitedly looks at bank account**
Nope, still poor..
I shoulda had it 2 years ago then 😂😂
How the heck did you get this so fast?! The che...I mean the am...I mean both!!!
Way to out OP as a poor with that information. /s
He’s all good lol.. I am doing more than alright lol. I’m actually pretty lucky since all the stimulus from both state and fed the last 2 years go off 2020 tax returns, that was the year i finished college and started as a new grad RN and didn’t start working FT until april/may of that year so I barely made under the threshold for the 75k lmao… had they gone of 21 returns I wouldn’t have qualified.. but hey im not complaining, I just consider this them giving me my tax money back… well some of it lol
Cool. My first thought was if you qualified for the stimulus, spending it on ammo isn’t the wisest choice. Clearly I was wrong and nicely done.
I’m an individual 26 year old who makes 72.5k/year. You would consider me poor and unwise to spend it on ammo? The stimulus doesn’t even cover half the taxes I already paid to california this year anyway.
Well I don’t know what your expenses are and what your financial goals are in life. Without knowing that, what you make is a somewhat meaningless number. For me personally, yes, if I made that it would be unwise to spend a lot on ammo.
Yeah I just think it’s funny you consider an individual income over the median and mean of the entire country to be poor.
The entire country doesn’t matter, this is California. It also matters where in California. If that’s Bay Area it’s one thing as opposed to somewhere in the I.E.

You might be out of touch.
There is nothing wrong with that
Gotcha - so those that don't want their bank account info hacked (thanks AG....) have to wait further. I shouldn't be surprised at this point.
I hate you...
LOL, good choice. I used my stimulus check to buy my Benelli M4.
Nice! Can I ask how much your Benelli came out to?
Should have bought the dip…
Cheapest I've seen it is about 1900 but that's was close to the beginning of the year didn't get it since I built my first AR and got a 1911 along with a 22lr sport rifle to teach my cousins how to shoot to up their confidence
Checks going out right after the voter guides went out? “Remember who paid you when you fill out your ballot!”
Newsom gave me money for ammo but also votes for me not to have ammo…. So that cancels out. Guess I’m still voting red.
It already came in?
Lucky you, I never received anything this entire pandemic.
i mean its prob better to be at a tax bracket where you don't qualify for stimulus checks?
Agreed, I got pretty lucky wity this tbh.. 2020 is the year they’ve gone off the stimulus the entire time for both fed and state, and that year I was a fresh graduate RN and only worked FT starting in april/may so I barely make the threshold of 75k, had they gone off 2021 income I wouldn’t get anything 🤷🏽♂️
Sorry you make too much money
Nope, just over the threshold
Midwest rich, California poor
I am moving to Texas for a few years since I’m working remote. I guess I can’t complain anymore. Now I can buy whatever I want.
California poor, Texas lower middle class? Moving on up! /s
I get to live in Texas for free and renting out my house here. So I would say at least middle class finally.
Shit with that kind of economic opportunity next thing you know you’ll be riding some of that HK dick all the way to the bank!
Actually the first thing I’m getting when I get there is a sig p365 xl spectre comp.
This is what always gets me about the stimulus checks. If there's a threshold, there is someone just over that is getting fucked, and if you live in a state like CA (which we do), you know that six figures doesn't go far. It should be decided by state / COL, not tax bracket.
Same with financial aid. My household income was just over the threshold to receive aid so everything was out of pocket + loans
The threshhold is way too low. Household making 200k is still paycheck to paycheck status if you have kids, pets, or other dependents. I got two kids and two inlaws living with me. 6 mouths to feed and we’re too rich with just two working people?
I think it matters how you spend your money too.
no one’s considered rich in cali unless your above $150k per person lol.
That’s not rich, that’s just not stressed.
$150k it’s barely middle class in LA and just above poverty in SF
It’s those houses and cars
That means you’re getting a pretty good salary and you don’t need any stimulus.
It's not a stimulus check, it's a tax refund. They are giving you your own money back.
Why tf we get stimmys instead of just reducing taxes?
Because the state is ran by a bunch of crooks, Sneaky snake Gavin and his sacramento pals will actually be raising the marginal tax rate in 2024 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️
If I get a stimulus I’m honor bound to buy arms right?
In fact it is your duty to buy arms with it!
I’ve got the og stimulus set aside for a beretta 1301
How much can a single person can expect? 26
Then I’ll buy a box 📦 of ammunition then
You should thank Us, not this clown Newsom.
Enjoy and buy more
Damn thanks for the reminder about the CA checks. Will be on the lookout for getting some of my tax dollars back
I did this with the last CA stimulus check, too. Feels good!
Stimy check? Feels more like a bribe in guise.
essentially what it is. Couldn’t pay me to vote for him tho.
Yup you even used his money for his absolute favorite thing. Well technically it’s our money (the tax payer) but still.
How did u get your check so early?
I completely forgot about this round
What I don't understand about all this malarkey is how a $200 check is going to provide any relief to someone making $250k/yr? Thats pay for 2 hours of work.
> Lmao….you’re not eligible if you make 250k a year
Yes, you are. You aren't if it's $250,001.. but $250k pays $200 for an individual.
Yea that was my original point. It's pretty stupid. Not to mention the fact that someone making $75,001 only gets $50 more... We got some real smart people at the helm here in CA.
I'm right there with ya bud. I'll still take the check though lol
It depends where you live. $100k in San Francisco isn’t a lot of money, even if you don’t have kids.
A sense of community is a real thing. Some people even save it’s the fabric of our society. Expecting someone to move out of the community where they were raised and their family is located because prices have increased and they can no longer afford does not create a healthy society
Ammo and gun relief like what you guys getting?
The 150 grain with my SP01 is a favorite to shoot with but $25+ a box make it hard to keep shooting.
Yeah, rather expensive, I usually don’t buy until they go on sale at turners, which lucky for us is pretty frequent
I've noticed Sportsman's Warehouse usually has ammo a few dollars cheaper per box than Turners. I always cross shop those two for ammo.
Last week Sportsman’s Warehouse did have the 130 Grain Syntech for $18.99. Haven’t checked if it’s still going on.
I jumped on that. With how much basic 9mm is, it’s a killer price.
The Turner's in El cajon will price match Sportsman's prices of you ask
Buy online sir
Yes, it’s my usual go to at the range for my glock 26. I think it’s a good round overall. My buddy whos a cop says federal is the brand they usually go with so thats why I started getting it.. figured it must be decent 🤷🏽♂️
Just remember that the guy buying rounds for the police department is just a dude and probably just goes with who gives them a good deal. I’d look at independent reviews online, but that being said, I’ve had no issues with federal.
They go with whoever buys them the most steak dinners
i got fuck all. i never do when it comes to these damn stimies. congrats to you tho.
and before anyone gives me the "boohoo youre rich" treatment, living in the south bay of nor cal has a ridiculous cost of living. so in a vacuum, tho it may appear i make a decent chunk of change, in my neighborhood my salary puts me in the low income bracket yet simultaneously out of the threshold according to the state.
Yeah, my apt complex is on the cusp of being "low income" and I pay half my monthly income on rent, yet I'm ineligible because I would be rich in the middle of nowhere. That shit does not compute at all.
Lol we got ours and bought a Ruger PCC. I absolutely love the irony of this move.
You have fulfilled your duty.. congrats to ya 😎
Did you get them from the weak a** gun show they had in SAC?
No Turners, on sale right now
I must have got it early because i’m brown lmao 🤣🤷🏽♂️
This one actually targets most people since the salary range is 500k and under per household.
I guess sarcasm is dead... my bad to the softy's that got hurt.
It’s ok he’s getting it back and more with taxes and audits 😂
Gonna use mine for ccw
Nice Gonna use my stimmy to get me a holosun pistol dot.
Got a 507k on my p01. I recommend it
Got a Daniel Defense thanks to new some and I ain't even mad
Make sure you spend that money out of state people
Just picked up and shot those federal 130grain today. Nicee
Newsome bucks ftw! nice grab
Throw desiccants in there!
What you got you’re stimy already I’m waiting on mine
How much did this ammo cost?
The whole stimmy
CA is getting a stimulus??? Why and when👀👀
Don’t lie, that was more that $400
You got it already ?
I'm still waiting on last year's tax refund. I would rather have that.
So long as you bought from a local business, that check is doing exactly what he wants you to do with it
Pfft I never get free money.
personally i was gonna yolo my check gas futures calls but i'm not so sure i'm gonna get any monies.
Im not old enough for my parents to not claim me on their taxes. I never have and never will get a stimulus. Also I work and go to college at the same time but hey they get a tax break am I right.
