need some self control...
Years ago I didn't think I needed a gun... now that I have my first one I feel under armed and vulnerable, LOL... the G19 is nice and has a nice capacity but it is not concealable with my everyday wear or khakis, polos, and button front shirts(at least until I get an MTAC). Now I want that PM9 Asap as a pocket gun but I don't think I should be blowing all my money...
Here is my list in order to buy
Glock 19 (check)
PM9 (loved it)
Mossberg 590 (still need to try it)
USP 45 Compact (love the feel, still need to try it)
4"-6" S&W .357 (I fired a nice one during my permit class and loved it)
Am I going crazy?

Do you honestly think anyone here will think you are crazy???
Hell yes to the Mossberg 590, although for home protection I would prefer it without a stock.
.357 snubbies can hurt, haha.
I had a SW 686 .357 Pro Series for a while. I LOVED it, loved the look of it, the trigger was amazing, and being a novice and trying really hard and patient I could get 3 inch spreads at 25 meters out. That being said it was huge, and after a while I started seeing it as more of a toy and less practical in home defense so I traded for a Kimber 1911 shortly after.
With that being said, you should put a 1911 on your list =-D

Not crazy.....you just have the fever:) And the only medicine for it is a purchase of one of those you listed above. Happy shopping!

I don't want to discourage the purchase of more guns, each one on your list is a worthy goal. But, a nice holster/belt combo for your 19 will be a lot more valuable to you than adding more guns without proper provisions to carry and keep them up and running in top shape. There is no reason why you could not conceal the 19 with your manner of dress, and you will be better armed to boot.

i caught the fever about a year ago. i started with a mossberg 500 and a hipoint 995. i started a list myself. i'm making progress. my wife asked me the other day how many guns i was going to buy. i said, "as many as i can"
9mm handgun - purchased (hi point C9)
High Powered Rifle - purchased (Mosin Nagant 91/30)
Battle Rifle - purchased (AK 47)
.22lr rifle - i like the ruger but will probably get a marlin
.40 or .45 subcompact - i like the glock 27
coach gun - probably make this a project gun
.38 revolver - distant future
more AK's - as many as i can afford

Awfully short list you have there. I need to write my down, but I can guarantee it's 3-4x's longer.

I do not have a list; I just have purchased “my last” gun several times. And I am sure I will continue doing the same in the future too

It appears that you are exhibiting normal cognitive behavior.

Simple to operate, reliable and with 15+1 don't need to carry a spare mag for most situations :p

A good holster with a good belt, and slightly larger shirts...that Glock-19 can easily be concealed.

My "owned" list is very short.
My want list is longer than my arm and grows every time I go to a gun shop. The only thing wrong is that we don't all have the want list in hand.

Sir, you have an affliction for which there is no cure, but which can be controlled by periodic expenditures of moderate sums of money. You must, however, be certain to allocate enough of that money to feed your new acquisitions.
As others have said, that Glock 19 is easily concealed. Look at holsters by Brommeland, Desbiens, Sparks and Rosen, as well as K&D Holsters and others. Many good makers build holsters and belts that will allow you to conceal a 19 and an offside mag pouch under an untucked short.
BTW, I own a PM-9 and two Mossberg 590s, one of which is Vang-comped. I also own .357 snubbies and 4" and 6" .357s. Good choices, all. I'm not a fan of H&Ks, but they are good guns. I'm a huge fan of Benellis, but only the autos. I find the Super Nova to be clumsy.
