    I'm in so much debt, got another gun.

    Before you read, pictures coming next week. I'll update when I get the gear, but for those of you who just need something to look at:

    surefire E1b - E1B Backup™ - SureFire
    surefire g2 - G2 Small LED
    for my Kahr cw9 - OfficerStore.com: DeSantis Cozy Partner Holster
    the XD - Springfield Armory XD 9mm service

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    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.

    AH !

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
