Default I cant stop buying 1911s

Aside from the Colt Python I just purchased, I cannot stop buying 1911s. It's truly and addiction. I've sold off all my polymer guns (except my G23) and picking up these fine weapons. The newest one today :

Default Buying 1911's

No such thing as addiction to buying guns.

My wife ask me years ago, why do you have some many guns.

My reply was, the same reason you have so many shoes!!

She has never said anything about my guns since!!

Im only lucky that my wife enjoys guns as much as I do. She doesn't really say much when i buy a new gun. if she does complain, I just the her to the range and let her shoot it. All the complaints seem to disappear.

So far, aside from the Colts (which you can't beat) I really like my Sig scorpion.

This "addiction" can have serious consequences.

I heard rumor that one of our Senior Members (or was it a Moderator?) tried to offer the 7 step program.
It didn't work, and the poor soul was sent to Kalifornya for the remainder of his living days.
