    I had my appendix removed last July. Unfortunately I'm still paying for it. But with taxes this year I was barely able to get my first handgun. Hope your finances bounce back and you can get the gun you want!!

    You could always do like one of my dad's buddies. Get stinkin' drunk, clamp on a vice-grips, and pull it yourself. Then, wake up the next morning to find you pulled the wrong one. :eek:

    I'm so glad my health insurance covers dental and vision with no co-pays.

    Well, hope I don't disappoint you guys, but my tooth ache is subsiding. It got so bad the whole side of my head was piercing with pain, couldn't really tell if it was the tooth or something more serious. This morning it had come down a little, and I am sure it's the tooth. Been getting better all day. So if it's better tomorrow, I'll cancel my $400 appointment, get some insurance for $10/mth, and see if they can save it for $400!

    Get some cheap fish antibiotics to deal with the abscess, then have them do a simple extraction for $75. lol

    I know what you mean. I think the head gasket let go on my old truck tonight. There goes my 995ts and a few other things.

    I think that $400 IS a simple extraction. The dentist doesn't pull nothing, I have to go to a surgeon.

    Didn't barbers pull teeth out until the 19th century?

    Damn. That's not much of a dentist. I go to a place that does everything. I had my kids getting their 6 month check-up and cleaning with one dentist while I was getting a refit on my dentures a couple of chairs down. They have their own labs and everything. I'm arguing with my insurance company to get the dental implants done there so I don't have to f*ck with this upper plate anymore.

    I'm in Florida, f***ing the old people is the name of the game down here. Maybe there is a one stop shop here somewhere, but it might be hard to find. I called a dentist to pull my tooth, they referred me to an oral surgeon, no discussion.

    Florida has a pretty good pill mill. Use the pain from the abscess to get a scrip for pain meds, pill mill it, sell the pills, and use the profits to pay for the dental procedure AND have enough left over for gun money. Problem solved. :D
