1. What drives you when you buy a gun?
Mad money in the pocket if I have it
2. Is it the looks or a particular platform?
The looks (condition) go a long way and the platform? Lately I've been nuts about lever guns and side by side double barrel shotguns with exposed hammers. You can keep you ARs...
An SVT40? Krag? Now ur talkin'
3. Function or form?
See number 2
4.Does it stem from seeing a particular gun in a magazine or talk on a forum that makes you seek one out to test to see if it meets your particular needs or desires?
Rarely, I was however a little influenced by some magazine articles when I bought my Ruger LCP 380. I really don't care for that gun...
5. Are you driven by purpose or spontaneity when you see something in the gun store?
Lately its been spontaneity
6.Do you go by pure emotion or logic when buying?
If it's a really beautiful gun logic goes right out the window
