    In 16 months have purchased LCR, LCP, GP 100, SR9c and CT laser, 22/45, 10/22, about 6 holsters, speed loaders, ammo, sights, accessories, books, ccl, magazines, gun clubs, etc. I would say about $4000. I also discovered Spyderco and already have 4 with one on the way.

    I also sent one of three kids to college with other two in Catholic school. This has been an expensive year.

    Don't ask me about my Apple purchases this year!

    I havent bought much this year for myself.

    I think I have added two pistols.

    If you count rifles, barrels, trigger assemblies, stocks, scopes,mounts,suppressors,parts and tools relating to such, I'm well into 5 figures.

    Its only money though. Its not good for much if you dont use it.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    So far this year I've purchased 6 firearms and have arrangement's to purchase two in January...plus thousands of rounds of ammo.
    And so when man and horse go down beneath a saber keen, or in a roaring charge of fierce melee you stop a bullet clean, and the hostiles come to get your scalp, just empty your canteen, put your pistol to your head and go to Fiddlers green. U.S Army Cavalry

    My answer to my wife is, this old gun, I have had it forever
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!

    OK, so my firearms and ammo purchases force me to live in a hovel, eat roadkill, and do my shopping from the dumpster behind WalMart, my hovel is well protected and I'm enjoying the hell out of all the shooting I get to do

    Thankfully, I don't have to keep up.

    Besides, quality time shooting can't be measured by spending. I get to shoot more because I handload. If I acquire a fairly expensive handgun or two per year and only feed my shooting hobby with factory ammunition I'm not doing much shooting at all.

    As it is I may add a handgun or so in any given year but I consume a lot of handloads and .22 ammunition.

    I had quite a year. A 380 turned into a 229, a 226, an XDm, an M&P, a Kimber, and within the next two weeks, a J-frame will join them. Alessi, Sparks, TT Gunleather, AG Gunleather, and Kramer all got a slice of a pie that I got carried away with. This is not accounting for ammo, either hardball or carry. I spent a little money this year.

    From op

    I'm starting to feel like a tightwad as I read these. Keep it up. Soon I'll feel required to start shopping.

    (Speaking of money, by the way, did you see that new Dan Wesson 10mm Titan? $4500!)

    Right now, under $1K....

    However, if you asked how much I've spent so far in guns, ammo, and equipment--that number would be much higher. Not to mention if you throw in money for training, you're talking $10K plus

    This has been a lean year so it's less than $1000. Most years it's between $1000 and $2000. It's amazing how quickly you can spend a ton of money.

    I did go through a couple of years where I worked a part time job just to support my gun habit. I can't even begin to calculate what I spent during that span of time.

    I spend between 2-3 per year.. I got a 12 and 14 year old son.. They can shoot up $40 in .22 ammo a weekend!! This is a cheap hobby compared to my son's motocross racing though! We spend about 8-10K a year on that for a just a trophy! The gun hobby could save our life and that my friends is priceless!
