Yes I know exactly what you mean. I had not bought a new gun in years, hadn't even shot the ones I had. Then about a year ago my son gets me to go to the range with him. That got me started I have bought 12 guns in this last year. And I don't know how much ammo, holsters, extra mags, and a bunch of other gear. I just don't seem able to even go into any store and not look for something to go along with shooting. And I think my wife wanted me out of the kitchen for gun cleaning. We have a small room that we really don't use for anything, she put me a drop leaf table, cabinets, and better lighting so I could clean and work on them better.

Now thats a good woman. My wife was watching me grab some cash out of the safe this morning......... she rolled her eyes ...... she knew. I have a 4 year old daughter though so extra cash is hard to come by. Im thinkig that buying another one today would not be in my best interest

Poor soul!
Time has a way of reducing the urges, but it still is not a cure.

I've had times where I missed the thrill of buying something firearms related.
(Then I think of Obama, Pelosi, and others, and wonder what they may be scheming. Brings me back to reality.)

Its almost like a high. Buy a new firearm and take it home, tear it down, clean it and inspect it! !!

It's a disease known as "Gun Fever". A very rare with unique side effects. The only disease known that can save your life rather than end it.
