Buy what you still need
Nice list.

One problem. After all that, then what? I'm happiest when I'm thinking about the next one.....

I'm completely an impulse gun buyer. I've got my collection down to quality and have sold off most of the quantity. I'm past the point of need and have completely moved to want. I've got Jagermeisters' list completely covered twice over.

I basically go in to browse about once a week at a few different LGSs and when something catches my eye and is within my new gun budget, it goes home with me.

My problem is I work myself up into believing I need a particular item then get it and am disappointed in some capacity. Then I trade or sell the item for a loss and repeat this cycle. I have some winners right now, things I won't be getting rid of, but I've lost my butt to find these items.

Examples of losers: KelTec PF9, Ruger LCP, Auto Ordnance 1911, Walther PPK/S, Century Galil, Smith .380 Bodyguard, Mossberg 30-30 lever action

Examples of winners: Glock 34, Sig P238, Ruger 22/45, Taurus PT 1911 AR in .38 Super, Remington 870 Wingmaster

Surprise of the year: Russian Makarov

On the fence: Springfield XDM 5.25 9mm

Current wants: KelTec PMR, FN Five Seven

I need to se a therapist!! According to my old lady. Bought 5 guns and 2 safes in the last 11 months. Then I see a friends new gun , or some one on here shows some gun porn, and I'm obsessively on the computer shopping around. She tells me I only have two hands! I tell her I can multitask if needed. Now I need a new revolver, Glock, a 30-06 , 308. I do t know what to get next.

One good thing about firearms is that unless you overpay quite a bit as long as you buy quality and take care of them they will always be worth just as much if not more than you paid. (feel free to use that one on your wives, doesn't always work but hey...can't hurt).

I buy what I like to shoot. I like to shoot medium to high end pistols and rifles.
