    Can't stop buying firearms, LOL

    SWMBO and I agreed we were done for a little while... That is until a local forum had a P22 for a good price. We agreed on a better price. He claimed it probably had less then 400 rounds through, uh huh, sure. I actually believe it! This thing looks NIB :)

    It's going to be her's so maybe I can start working on an AR15 :)

    The real question, will I highlight the engravings?

    Seek immediate medical and psychological treatment from qualified professionals.

    You've taken the first step by admitting you have a disease.

    Catch it early, treat it often.

    Good God man...DO IT...do it now before it's too late!

    i'm sorry to inform you, there is no known cure for the addiction! as long as there are guns for sale, you will always have the addiction. maybe we could start a support group. wait, that's what this forum is, a support group!

    Yeah probably not the best. But last week she told me if I came home with the Springfield micro compact .45 acp before Christmas she was gonna use it on me. But she let's me usually buy new toys when I have the money without any questions. Also she is now wanting me to start buying her guns to instead of just bigger framed stuff so she can go to the range with me

    let the bullets do the talking!

    I don't have any money either... but this was a deal too good to pass up.

    Funny story, we have to get permits to purchase from the local PD. After the first two purchases, I told the secretary that was it for awhile. She started laughing. After the 2nd two, told her we're done. She said, "if I could have a dollar for everytime I hear that". I let SWMBO turn in the registration on the new one :)

    I guess people are all the same. I bought my first rifle, a cheap Savage .22 bolt, last January thinking "this'll be enough for me for a while." Less than a month later I bought a shotgun. Here it is 9 months later and I have 2 pistols, 3 shotguns, and 4 rifles. I just weighed the box I keep my ammo in and I have 80 pounds of bang in there.

    there is no known cure for this addiction! there is no known treatment, all you can do is suffer through it. i have this addiction for over forty years, and it gets worse. when i buy another gun, the high soon wears off, and i need another fix! like many, my checkbook is the limiting factor, but am very fortunate to have a very understanding and loving wife. she even enjoys shooting some of them with me. she told me the other day, that she would like to have a 357 magnum revolver like she had years ago. she doesn't know a lot about guns, but best i can tell, she had an older Smith with a 4" barrel. well i guess she has the addiction also now, just not as bad as me!

    my wife doesnt shoot better than me, but i'm glad she does enjoy it. my first two wives didn't have any interest and couldn't understand why i had to have so many guns. i told both of them in the past, when they stopped shopping for clothes all the time, i would stop buying guns. plus i explained, clothes wear out and lose money and have to be replaced, guns don't wear out and can increase in value!
