Less than a month after buying my very first gun, the Kahr cw9 on March 19th, I put a deposit on a Springfield XD service in 9mm. I thought about the 40 cal, but 9mm is a round I'm comfortable with. Curse this stupid indoor range that conveniently sells guns, curse their nice sales associates who I can't refuse!
The entire time I was in the shop waiting for my credit card slip to print, I felt this dreadful buyers remorse and cursed myself as I walked out with the receipt in my hand, but I just couldn't stop myself. I just had to have another gun! It's only another $541, I guess. I still have enough of my tax return back to pay off some credit card debt. or.. wait..
Just last night, I ordered a Surefire E1b backup LED light, and.. a Surefire G2 LED, and.. a Desantis IWB holster for my Kahr CW9. Not to mention this CCW permit app. cost me $200+ for the prints, photos, notary, filing and NRA basic pistol training. All the above along with the 150 rounds of ammo I just bought, and ran through today. As I was in Walmart getting the ammo, I picked up a Buck knife for $20.
I'm really in over my head. I blame it all on the forum. $1500 in less than a month, but no, I'm not done.. I'm still itching to have a 1911, but that's not the worst part.. Next week is my GF's birthday.

The XD is great, but isn't about time you got a keltec and belt clip for those times you just need to throw something in the pocket. Hey, it's only $300.
(nobody tell him that he'll also spend $200 in range fees and ammo)
Darnit cupcake, you just reminded me I really want the Kahr 380 when it comes out. Do I have to start stocking .380 ammo? ... can't I just shave off some brass from my 9mm? It'll work.. I need to cut corners somehow.
Why do I even need all this ninja gear.. who spends $110 on a flashlight? what's wrong with me?
Sorry, I guess since your so uncontrollably hooked I'll keep it to myself that you'd really benefit from a good .22 pistol. I won't mention how much you'd save in a single range session...
Don't feel bad about your ninja gear gear collection. It doesn't get much better than having a $110 flashlight, except maybe having a $140 flashlight...
Ahhh.....the .22 another on the want list.
What about a resolver?
No collection is complete until you have one!!!
Well good for you. Its cool to find a new hobby you love, but be carful no sense going to far into debt.
I hear ya, no gun yet but I paid $200 for my class, and another $135 for the permit application. Now I just need a snubbie, holster, belt, IWB holster, and a Sig....
Don't worry, Freedom. It's only money. I have faith you'll make more.
And you're nowhere close to the damage I did in the last 8 months.
I would have to say "wise investment"
It doesn't get any better, it's a curse, welcome.

You need more self discipline, do not buy another gun for 1 full week, then you can reward yourself for your self control by treating your self to another gun.

Well, you are just getting started my friend. Enjoy, it is ONLY money and you can't take it with you.
maybe this is why the Brady Campaign wants to limit you to 1 handgun a month. They have been looking out for your wallet all these years...isn't that nice of them.
