Default I've lost that feeling....

As with any of the people here, buying another firearm is is total joy.....

Or it use to be. Lately, when considering purchasing another firearm, I end up thinking the purchase over and walk out empty handed. I don't seem to have any "holes that need to be filled" in my safes. I don't have that "I need that gun to make my life complete" feeling anymore.

Am I losing it or are the little voices starting to take over?

I'm in the same boat. I have multiples of everything I could possibly need and much of the excitement is gone. Right now I have 3-4 that I haven't even shot yet and in days past that would never have happened...

The only problem I have is the wallet doesn't hold enough funds to fill the needs. I need another AR, 6 more Mosins, an LCR in 357, another 1911, another AK, an M&P(can't decide on caliber), and 2 more Sigmas

I'm sure there is always something, so if anyone wants to donate, I will give you my paypal info.

I think I only have one hole, which I have addressed (have fun with that one). But, after I fill that hole, I still think another one will appear.

Yup. A few I want to upgrade, but the rack is full with a few standing in the corner.

I've actually considered---just for a moment---S--S-S-S-Selling some. Is
this a treatable condition?

I think what I need to do is broaden my horizons. Most of my stuff is
Practical Pistol/3 gun/GSSF/ ICORE/Steel Challenge. I think I'll get
interested in Sporting Clays or maybe F Class--that should take care of
the stagnant cash outflow and stimulate the economy!

I've told myself I will not buy another gun until I get an upper for my AR-in-progress... although I really really really want a Mosin right now..

I still have many voids to fill in my gun collection, but I do have one that *gasp* I haven't shot yet, my little NAA mini revolver.

It's a terrible feeling..... Don't blame yourself... Blame the few absolute FAVORITE guns you own. They get way too much attention! They are like huntin' dogs. You gotta feed all of them
