    I have no desire to look at, hold, buy, go shooting, or even talk about guns and gun accessories.

    The one remaining thing I look forward too is my holster from Brandon. I can't wait any longer!! It's gonna rock.

    I put out the word I had some money burning a hole in my pocket and nothing came of it. I banked the cash instead.

    IDK, to much of a good thing?

    It happens. Just wait, sooner or later you will see some gun that is so cool, that you'll have to have it. :D

    Take a hiatus from it, I sometimes do.

    I'll not look at my stuff for a few months then I come back with a vengeance! :)

    I take that time to enjoy other hobbies and when I return I appreciate the things I have even more.

    Yea, I know what ya mean about losing interest in guns. I had a female shooting partner who started complaining about getting her boots too dirty, it's too cold, it's too hot, it kicks too hard, and it takes all day. I finally said forget it and put the guns in the gun room and closed the door. I kept that door closed until I could not stand it any more. I regenerated interest by mixing up my target selection. Rather than shooting at paper I decided to hang pots and pans. I now shoot alone and shoot in peace.

    It's probably a very healthy thing NOT to sit around thinking about guns all the time. It's good to cultivate lots of hobbies and be well-rounded and well-balanced. As long as you don't turn into some liberal, birkenstock-wearing, Volvo-driving, latte sipping, anti, I think you are gonna be o.k. ;)

    I take a gun with me everywhere i go so i dont ever go any period of time without touching one. BUT i do get wrapped up in doing other things sometimes and tend not to play with them very much. It is good to take a break from things every once in a while.

    If guns are a hobby, you will eventually tire of them. If guns are a part of your way of life, well.

    Well I hate to say this and I don't want to hurt your feelings but it sounds like you have FD, I think you should visit your FD doctor and get something akin to Viagra to renew your FA, Firearms Attraction.:rolleyes:

    I have not lost interest in guns and shooting but it is getting hard for me to find someone to go with. Recently i asked a guy I have shot with a lot if he wanted to go out for some target practice. He said, "Well, that is the day I usually go to the grocery store." Some of the gun owners I know mostly just talk about guns now and don't actually shoot them very much. I know some other folks who bought guns because of Obama but they don't shoot them. I wish I knew someone here who was enthusiastic about shooting.

    +1 GatorDude,

    If all a man has is one hobby then he really does not have much. I got the same way after working for a small race team for 15 years. I love my guns and working on them, playing with them, practicing, cleaning them. But I have a lot of other hobbies too.

    I love to fish, ski, girl watch and do stuff with the family. Just don't do something crazy like sell off all of your collection, take a breather and see what else you find a passion for.

    I have a friend that bought his first 1911 a few weeks ago, but whenever i ask him to go shoot,he never wants to. He said that he isnt gonna shoot it cause he will use ammo, so basically he wants to hoard ammo and not ever shoot...

    Time to start adding blades.

    The good news is that a few hundred bucks will buy more blade instant gratification than if it were spent on firearms.

    Exactly, i thought that he bought it to shoot it but if your scared to use ammo it kinda defeats the purpose of having it. I think that he is trying to see if he can accumilate a couple of thousand rounds,but still.. Shoot the damn thing!!!

    Start collecting bad ass knives. I'm fond of the battle axe, and my KA-BAR is my favorite in the way it's simple and strong, reminding me of the men I've looked up to as father fugues. End of sentimental BS.
