Its hard finding that thin line between:

and "these things are costing me on average $600 every 3 months + ammo and I dont REALLY need another one"
I do feel somewhat guilty about my recent Glock purchase so close to Christmas, specially since my wife & I agreed to cut down on spending on our huge family. Im not in a financial position at 30 years old to be making any more gun purchases for a while...and need to conserve on ammo. I've had plenty of practice and I'm a great shot with all my guns....now its time to cut back big time and use them for safety. I think for those on a budget, one gun a year for $600 is a smart move....and if I can hold back and skip a year I'll have $1200 to throw down on a gun and stay WELL within my budget
