    I buy NEW guns because good quality older ones are getting harder to find every day. People are snapping them up as soon as they hit the market.

    Here are mine.

    1. Because you want one...
    2. It matches mags you already own...
    3. It matches your belt...
    4. It would look great as a BQ gun...
    5. Fill out your collection of X, Y or Z (you fill in)...
    6. It is the compact version of your full size IDPA gun...
    7. Because it is there and you just have to have it...
    8. It would make people go what the heck!!!...
    9. Because you need it for a holster form (my favorite!)...
    10. You want to continue your obsession with buying leather holsters...

    What others do you have? With more reasons we can all have Christmas more often...

    You need a reason? Doesn't you have some extra cash and space in the safe count for anything any more these days?

    I just bought a Springfield XD 45C and it's just not enough!
    By the way a wonderful gun to shoot. Very manageable recoil.
