Every year of my life, from 18-25, I bought a gun with my tax return. I never made dick for money (still don’t. Can’t find someone willing to pay me $14 an hour as an experienced machinist) so I can only thank those of you who made decent wages and paid much higher tax rates for buying my guns for me.
I first read about BAG Day on Kim du Toit’s blog (no longer active) and IIRC he promoted the original idea but did not claim credit for originating it. This post made me interested enough to google the origins of it. If the link above is not correct, please let me know.
I suspect BAG Day has been going on a lot longer than blogs, but on a more individualized basis.
