The catch is that I want some acreage. I'm going to be doing firearms instruction as a sideline, so ideally I'd get a plot of land that's big and out in the boonies enough that I can put up a berm or two and have my own range. Every gun nut's dream! Right now, I'd have to do the classroom stuff one place, then go to the range for the rest. This is a pretty good time to buy, so I'm looking around for something. I saw a twenty-acre place with a house that had a plot next door perfect for a gun shop, but the guy was asking for too much money, alas. Good deal, probably, but still too pricey for me right now. So I'm still looking, and today I found some nice possibilities. Though I would have to build on them, which would be a further expense, but I could do a relatively small cabin for the short term.
The best place I spied out? O.M.G. Over a hundred acres. *Two quarries.* Gorgeous views. Very close to the town I'll be counting on for a lot of my firearms instruction clientele. Absolutely insanely wonderful.
Um, anybody care to lend me two million dollars?
(The smaller plots are surprisingly reasonable; I can actually afford twenty acres of Florida land. So that's a real possibility.)
