Big purchases for me are few and far between.
2001 - bought a 99 grizzly runs great and hauls out the deer fine!
If I can I will by a gun every year if reasonably priced and used.
This year I have bought a lot of russell apx gear and I am highly impressed. I have found this stuff cheaper than most wal-mart gear and the quality is way better. I shouldn't need anything for many years! I would like some muck boots but I am pretty much spent out on gear this year.
