    I bought my first gun back in 1996. Received my tax return and tripped across a Colt 1991 A1 with after market night sights. Shortly there after I acquired a Mossberg 12 G and a Russian SKS from 2 different fellow soldiers, one getting married, the other getting divorced. I'm beginning to think the manner I'm which I acquired those first 2 long guns did something funky to my safe because the guns seem to have began breeding of there own accord?

    First indication was the arrival of a Kimber Pro II. This confused me because I'd never noticed the Colt gaining any weight but I figured some ladies hide thier condition better than others and after all, that Colt did spend several weeks in a Tacoma gun shop just laying around more than a few eligible bachelors.

    Next to show up were 3 different shotguns! A Remi Semi auto, a strange OU with what I'm sure is a Chec accent, and a Winchester 20 G? That original Mossy did come from a broken home and in hindsight she always did look a little slutty but I figured hey, there still cheaper than children and more fun too so why get upset, right? It was about this time that I purchased a Sig 226 and an S&W 629. This is where things went de-ja-vo all over again! That 629 must have been expecting when I brought her home because within a week I found the cutest little Ruger SP101 .357 Mag nestled into the adjacent door holster, cuddling with her .44 mag mommy...

    and I'm not sure who knocked up that Sig but 9 months later an XD .45 appeared out thin air. I've detected a very slight Chec accent on this pistol so I suspect that foreign OU 12 G had his way with my little precious Sig.

    Since all this went down I've discovered a SS CZ75B, "those damn Chec's are prolific little breeders" and a little Kahr PM 9? The XD DENIES IT but come on...Polly frame? Striker fired? The resembelance is just to much to reach any other conclusion.

    This is just the highlites of MY experience. What started with that 1 Colt some 16 years ago has multiplied into an inbred family of 18 and frankly, I'm having trouble feeding all of these hungry mouths. I've never heard of firearm contraception but know there are many here with far more knowledge than I so I thought I'd explain the situation and ask for your guys advice.

    I did have one 12G run off on me a few years ago...a pretty little Winchester Weatherby who left me for my older brother. He must give good silicone cloth wipe downs or something because the joker does not even own a safe. I mean come on, ladies don't just run of for a guy who can't keep a roof over her head unless he's giving her a little something extra...;) right?

    Anywho, it's been quite therapeutic for me to share my gun owning woes with all of you. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and would welcome any advice.


    Signed, "too many mouths to feed" Tack

    My guns are breeding too. My Remington is prego and the gunsmith said it's going to be a SKS. It's due any week now. I'm starting to think my old 16 ga sxs is pregnant too. We're hoping for a Nagant revolver. :D

    Yeah C3, I've noticed the poor "less expensive" guns tend to breed more prolifically that the rich "expensive" ones.

    Kind of like people that way...

    Oh, and I have 4 kids. Thought I'd better throw that in before being accused of snobbery.:)

    There is nothing more dangerous than an affair with a Mosin Nagant. I haven't been able to build racks fast enough for them. They are eating me out of house and home, but at least they feed cheaply.....

    Well lest see, with that lineage it would be:
    Angry
    Somewhat bulky/ugly
    Probably suffer from little mans syndrome
    ...and have self esteem issues

    I'm guessing you'd wind up with a Hi Point 9 mm...

    Better keep them two separated

    Use barrel plugs and keep the actions closed, that would help :)

    It's not just the .22's C3. I started out with a mossy 151m and a 185 d. Next thing I know I find a 200 k. Six months later, a pair of model 500s and a 185k-a. A month ago my one 91\30 (must have been expecting when the wife picked her up!) bacame 2 91\30s and a 44! On top of that, I'm begining to think that my mausers are part rabbit as well.:eek: Good thing I reload, It keeps my "food" budget reasonable.:D

    Now that's just shocking!:eek::eek::eek: I'm laughing so hard I can't keep from crying..... Or is it the pepper spray?;)

    Hey Now, that's about enough of that...;)

    I bought a Colt 1991 A1 14 years ago and a Kimber Eclipse Pro II 8 years ago. No, it's not a fair comparison with the 1991 being Colts entry level gun and the Pro II being at the upper end of the Kimber scale but it's what I've got and while both guns are GREAT shooters the fit, finish, and internal workmanship, IE tool marks of my Kimber FAR surpass the Colt.

    Admittedly it's been a decade since I've bought from either manufacturer but AT THAT TIME there was not much argument the Kimber was a builder on the rise turning out affordable quality that you could not get from Colt without adding 1K with your gunsmith.

    Refreshingly Colt seems to have Recently awakened and are once again turning out top notch 1911's at a price thats competitive but this a new development.

    Personally i like em both and am happy to see some new innovation and a recommitment to the civilian market by Colt.
