I keep saying this, but good bits are an useable savings account.
I agree with you on the useable savings account to a point. I think alot depends on where you are at. You in the Buckaroo capital area would have no problem recouping some of your money out of your bits if need be. Around here you just don't see many couple hundred dollar bits floating around. It just doesn't seem like people around here really go all out on tack except in a few small cases. Just my observations around here. Now I go to montana to visit the In-Laws and I'm in the promised land of cool tack.
I just like the idea of having my girls using my stuff someday and having some pride in the tack they have and having a story to go with it. If I had boys I would probably keep buying guns but Im kind of switching gears here now that I have two little horse nuts at the house.
The first thing I need to decide is what mouth piece to get first. I really like a Mona Lisa with a santa barbara cheek. I'm deffinately not to the spade level yet, if ever. However I could just go with a pain old curb mouth or a frog mouth. Decisions decisions.
