    Congratulations on getting the gun bug. I'm new here also and can't over emphasize the great help found at this forum. To truly enjoy "GAS" infect your wife w/ it, and see where that takes you. (Buy a bigger gun safe, my wife shops guns like others shop cloths.)

    Hi Mike. I am glad you have finally seen the light!!! Just like the intro says....we are the good guys.....and as one of the resident doctors here....I am sorry to tell you there is no cure for the bug that bit you and G.A.S (as Mike_1 put it...) is a life sentence...just pray the 1911 virus doesn't attack....because that is exceptionally contagious.
    welcome... and read, read, read.

    Mike, embrace the disease and enjoy. I am putting new grips on my Kimber as we speak. My need to buy more guns has been temporarily appeased, since my best friend left for the Philippines tonight, and gave me 9 pistols. Life is rough, the disease incurable, so welcome aboard!

    I had to give in to the deep desire and came home with a new XD45 compact today.

    Hi Mike, My name is also Mike, and I have GAS (both varieties, both just as deadly). I do work in the healthcare field, and I can tell you that a GAS (Gun Acquisition Syndrome) is indeed a syndrome. Syndrome's are not diseases but a collection of symptoms that are not defined into a specific disease. Syndroms can take a variety of forms and subspecialties. Let me give some examples, GAS-XD, GAS-Gxx (insert more specific diagnoses such as 19, 23), GAS-Sig, GAS-AR. GAS - 1911, There are many others, some syndromes are more predominiate than others. Such as the GAS 1911, or the GAS SIG, seem to be more predominate than GAS-KT. The problem with subtyping syndroms is that the syndrom never goes away, but it may change subtypes over time.

    There is no cure for this syndrome - take it from a healthcare professional. Once one has this syndrome, going shooting is just as important as a drinking water, or eating. It becames life sustaining.

    Why would you want "help"?

    Yield to it. Resistance is futile.

    Enjoy, and good shooting!
