    Are You Addicted, Too?

    It should be against the rules for me to visit GunBroker on a weekend after 9pm. Yes, yet another P229 is on its way to Indianapolis. I'm addicted. I need help. Is there a Guns Anonymous?

    OMG, just don't call any hotlines! The last thing we need is for libs to start talking about "fighting gun addiction."

    So gunbroker is good? Been curious about online sales. You have to have it shipped to a dealer and pay them a fee, right?

    GunBroker is good, indeed, and yes, for nearly all purchases you have to have the gun shipped to an FFL in your home state.

    Hello, I'm NoName and I haven't bought a gun for 42 months.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    12-step process: For each of the next 12 weeks, send me one of your prime pistols or rifles. I'll take 'em through their paces and let you know what I think. Rinse, repeat, until your collection is toast. That'll cure you, if nothing else will. PM me, for address where to send them ...

    That's brave of you, taking on his addiction yourself! You should share the load with us, too much for just one to handle.

    We are all friends here and we can all help each other with our obsession/addiction. I too have a obsession. I bought a pistol last Monday and a shotgun the next day. On top of that I have been buying ammo left and right. What you have is very common. It is called gun addiction syndrome. GSA is something that you don't want a cure for. The only downside is trying to hide your new lead spreaders from your significant other. The best remedy I have learned is buying one for her! Don't be alarmed!! There are many Americans with this posotive obsession.

    The wife announced about an hour ago that there will be NO more gun purchases without prior approval. She suggested that I'd have to choose between her and the guns. I replied to ask if she was 100% sure she wanted to issue that ultimatum? She hasn't spoken since. I think I'm headed to a time out soon......

    Hi, I'm ginzo and I have a problem. Bought my 1st M&P, a 40FS in Dec 2012, and just ordered a 40c 2 weeks ago. Where does it end?

    IndianaSig........... I haven't told my wife yet. Better to ask forgiveness? My wife hates guns! (she's knows of the 1st one).

    She hasn't seen the FS yet, I don't flash it around. So long as she doesn't see them both at once, I think I'm golden.
    Criminals don't register guns.
    I carry a gun because a policeman is to heavy.

    It's the least I could do. I'm ready. Bring it on, baby. Your stuff, too, Max. A nice stash of ammo wouldn't hurt, either.

    Ah, newlyweds, huh?

    You will learn the craft of stealth and sleight of hand.

    I'd be quick about it. They get pretty mad.
