    Am I a gun nut?

    Am I a gun nut? I bought my first 1911 yesterday. She is a cute slightly used S/S S&W. I got my second today. a damn near virgin Charles Daly 1911. She was to cheap to pass up. Maybe another tomorrow. I saw 2 little Kimber 1911's giving me the eye. Also there was a DW 1911 that got my attention.

    Is there something wrong with this behavior? Or is it a phase we all go through?

    The only problem is that they're 1911's

    1911’s are like the old Lay’s potato chips commercial “You can’t have just one”.

    Guns (especially used ones) generally don't loose their value.

    I suppose once you have a full collection, you stop buying, but i don't know anyone whose collection is yet complete!

    Why not?!?

    Only gun nuts look at forums like this so you must surely be one. I'm sure no one anywhere near sane would read this or post on here.

    Do you go to meetings for that affliction? I know I should.

    I bought 3 pistols in 2 weeks in November. I really want another 1911, but it will have to wait.

    Well, then I must be one too. I won't say how many guns I own, but no matter how many I have there's always a few more I want.

    I've noticed that people have two lists. A list of guns they want, and a list of guns they can afford. Seldom are they the same length.

    hmmm...

    guess i'm the one who is nuts. I only own one gun, glock 23 - guess I figure I can only use one at a time. (I also can't afford another one right away).
