If you are in the market for a firearm, check out the S&W rebate programs. For many of their weapons, you get 2 clips and a $50 or $100 rebate.
I recently picked up a nice 9mm double action only SW9VE Enhanced Sigma. It is a very nice gun that has been marred by a bad rep due to early production problems (several years ago) and by a very heavy trigger pull (about 9 pounds or so). The ergonomics are great, it points well, and there are no complicated controls. The heavy trigger pull and your own precautions are the only safeties. At the range, I found it to be completely reliable and very accurate. However, with a heavy trigger, you really do have to focus on the fundamentals of the shot (sight picture, breathing control, trigger control, and follow through). This is the same pistol being issued to the Afghan National Police. At about $250 after rebate, I think it's a pretty outstanding deal. 8)

I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.
