Default Anybody else have a hard time choosing a new gun?

I will literally change my mind about 4-5 times when I'm looking for a new firearm to add to the collection. As it grows it gets easier, but I am a very indecisive firearm purchaser. So far though I have had very few regrets.

Ex: around December I will start thinking about what I want with my tax return, last year a literally went from deciding on a marlin 30-30 lever action to a Springfield Xdm. Not even in the same league

Let's cover the basics:
1. Full size pistol dedicated for the home
2. Bolt action rifle for long distance/hunting
3. Semi-auto rifle for medium range
4. Shotgun for close distance dedicated for home defense
5. Shotgun for hunting
6. Pistol dedicated for EDC
7. Handgun as backup while hunting-larger caliber
8. .22 Conversion kits or .22 in a handgun and semi-auto rifle
Buy what you still need

I don't need any more firearms, no more! Then I am walking along and boom I got another one. No angst, wife thinks it's just fine, no problem. Then I go buy all the stuff for the new caliber. It's so easy!

When you have nothing it is very easy My first was a Glock G22 gen4 - well everybody should have a Glock, right. My next which I will pick up in about two weeks thanks to the OGAM law in NJ is a Kimber Eclipse Custom II - as everybody should have a 1911. The third will be a wheel gun, know nothing about them so that might take some time. The fourth - now it gets hard, have not a clue

No more. I know what I want.

I just have the problem of getting the money for it.

I went to one of the lgs in my area last week the guy behind the counter said to me ,"Just yell if anything jumps out at ya.", it took a minutes to look around and I said back ,"No fear everything jumps out at me",.But on that note I've been looking around for a Sig P220 and am now going to end up with a 1911.

Right now trying to decide between a DA .44 Revolver, already have one in SA and another .40 semi auto, already have three in various sized frames.
When you first start what you NEED dictates what you purchase after a while it becomes more about what you WANT.
