Default How often do you buy?

How often are you guys purchasing firearms? After purchasing my first handgun 4 months ago I have been going gun crazy and want every gun I see. But I don't have the funds to do so, so I was wondering how often do you guys but a new firearm?

I started last October and I have 5 so far. Mostly layaways with maybe 2 of them being an outright purchase. I'm experiencing that "buy" everything itch as well.

Picked up my Glock 19 Gen4 yesterday and laid the groundwork for an AR purchase at the same time....apparently there are no brakes on this ride.

Atleast 1 every 2 months. I started at a very young age.

Know what you're getting into with lawaway. While it is good if you are certain you're going to be able to purchase the firearm, it's nasty for you if you pay on it then fall short on the 'drop dead' date, and they restock it.
Also make sure that the store you buy from removes your firearm from their shelf and puts it away, and doesn't leave it out there for a demo on the floor while you're paying it off.

Well, to put it simply, my last gun wasn't even out of the box before I started thinking about my next one.

I average about 1 every 3 years for the past 67 years when I got my first one.

My LGS will work with you as long as you give him at least 25 bucks a week and show effort, he'll let you have as long as you need. If you have zero patience, such as myself, it can be hard waiting all that time for a nice gun.

It took everyone I know YEARS to acquire their gun collection so don't go out and put yourself in debt in a hurry.
