    Can't help it... went "old-school" again! Do I need to get professional help?

    It was bad enough when I stumbled across a 2.5 inch M65 .357 Taurus revolver with original wood grips and took it home. I wasn't looking for it, but once I saw it and had a chance to put it in my hands, feel how smooth the action was, noticed the deep, rich blueing, the excellent fit and finish that went with Taurus 15 years ago... I had to have it!

    I just re-lapsed with this 15-yr old M82 Taurus 3-inch .38 revolver, also with original wood grips. Even ordered a black paddle holster from Wild Bill's Concealment that will fit both of them, so they have nice place to ride on my hip.

    I don't know if I need to seek help or not, but having "6-for-sure" in a well-proven platform just makes me feel a little bit better when circumstance has me in places that make one being armed a good decision to have made.

    Old-school? ehh... I can live with that!

    Nothing wrong with old school, what counts is it go bang when you want it to.

    Tell me if there's a cure it's happened to me three times in the last month! ruger 380 for summer carry, Remington 700 223 with bull barell,decent scope and bipod and last, you can laugh your asses off, all you want;
    but after a year of hunting and promises from several gun dealers in Maine I finally got a HiCap Carbine with a lazer site.This is one of the cheapest rifles I've ever purchased with a lifetime warranty.I would not buy
    a hi-point pistol but Ican see why so many officers purchased these on their own.Anyway, Adam I went to visit my son on his day off and visited the new Cabela store ended up buying 165 dollars worth of ammo.I think it's time
    to purchase a dillion reloader and take some classes on reloading.I found a S&W model 29 in stainless with 4 inch barell for $650 had my name on it until I asked how much the ammo cost,a buck everytime you pulled the trigger!

    Very classic. Not sure you can ever have too many. The help is needed when you no longer need another.
    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    I dont see it as a problem at all.
    When a man sees something that he wants he gets it..one way or the other.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    Get help soon. You're obviously a very unstable individual.
