should have stuck with it! House music is where the big money is at. Im just a lowly Radio/club dj that gets little recognition compared to those guys...Hope those monitors are good i just ordered them, decided it was time to upgrade myself.

I'd consider myself a semi pro. It's not my primary job but I do make money from it (weddings, car events, individual photo shoots). Tamron lens cap > Canon. It's easier to take off the cap when the lens hood is on because of the center release. Canon's is tough because of the side releases with a 4" lens hood attached.

I'm going to get a used 5D to replace the 20D then I'm going to get a 1D MKIII to replace the MKII. I should be done with most of my car mods soon, so I can start buying camera gear again.

Lots of firearms (Ruger P90 and XD40 to name a few...still waiting on my Beret .416)...and electronic equipment (I have a $1300 "webcam" that used to be a security cam, 40" LCD, dozen computers and laptops, wifi stuff out the ***, and excessive amounts of HD home theatre stuff)...but honestly...most of my money goes straight into my girlfriend (I think she eats it!?!?) A few weeks ago I was sick and just lounging about for a week...then the next week she was sick and I was out partying every night...I spent less money that whole week, than the weekend I saw her (after that).

My money pit...is Jennifer.

How do you like that P90? I've never really cared for the shape and feel of the rugers myself, but they are dead reliable and most are really accurate.

Imagine that? An rx7 with a broken motor? Nahh... Can't be true.

Lets see, aside from the Miata (and the other cars in the driveway), primary drain on the finances include:

Wife, two teenaged daughters, the house and the gun collection. (Select items from DPMS, Kimber, Ruger, S&W, Remington and Winchester...)
