    My Last Gun...

    I just did it again; I bought another 'last gun'! I have been told before that there is no such thing as a last gun.

    My first last gun, after many others, was my Beretta 9000s. I really grew to like it and it handled and carried well...that was all I needed.

    The next last gun was my Kimber Pro CDP II; it was a beauty. Shot flawlessly right out of the box. Yep, that was all I needed!

    Then the next last gun was my Kimber Ultra CDP II...ahhhh...just like the bigger Kimber, only a little easier to hide.


    My real last gun was supposed to be a KelTec P-11 to easily tuck away on my Harley. A BUG for my other last guns!

    Today...
    I just bought ANOTHER last gun...a Glock 36! Hadn't really been thinking about it, but I made the mistake of stopping in the gun shop for a 'look see'...as the shop just recently doubled its size.


    Well there it was...like a new puppy wanting a home...a Glock 36. I thought I would just pet it a few times and then set it down. Wow! It really fit my hand, single stack, .45cal...I couldn't say no...

    Help...anyone out there...is there any such thing as the "last gun?"

    The ''last gun'' to me will always be the one I last aquired before flipping this mortal coil.

    My Obit' will read - ''Chris, the well know gun addict bought his last gun not two weeks ago - it was *insert make and model* ''

    ''He will be missed but the gun goes to *enter recipient here*

    May I make it to heaven 1/2 hr before the devil misses me at the gun counter.

    I gave most of my guns to the boys so I don't have to clean them, but that only makes it easier to fill the holes with another "last" gun.

    Been at two gunstores all day considering my last gun...again. It's down to a collectible and Kimber; I need neither. I have 12 pistols on my carry permit, and as for the collectible, it is a Winchester 52 with an old Leichert(?) scope. My decision is maybe both should come home with me...

    I have bought many last guns to replace my first one. Still though it is that old workhorse that I carry. but I have a nice safe full of pretty pistols.

    I agree there is no such thing as the last gun, although there is always next time. I only hope that I have enough ammo on hand for all of the last guns that I have.

    I figured long ago that there would never be a "last gun". They have all been "latest gun". It's a horrible cycle, isn't it? :)

    I may have to give all of the people who posted on this thread an "oxymoron infraction". Well, everybody but P95Carry, I don't rank high enough to give a Lead Moderator an infraction. I can do it to the rest of you. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves using the word "last" in conjunction with the word "gun". That is a worse oxymoron than "military intelligence."

    So just remove the phrase "last gun" from your vocabulary and no one will get hurt.
