    I might be cured!

    Today I went to my local gun shop because they were running a sale on several models: Beretta, Ruger, Sig and one or two Glock models. I went there with every intention of buying a Ruger p345, but when I got there, I started thinking: "how much do I really need this gun?". The gun felt excellent ergonomically, solid like a Ruger, and something I'd be proud to own but I realized, I have guns for carry, and because of its size and weight, the p 345 would probably end up as a "safe queen". So reason prevailed, and I passed on it.

    Does this mean I'm cured???

    You might be sick. I would go to a doctor.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    The disease is incurable, only periods of remission.

    Forget the Dr., go to your closest Gunsmith and have him examine you.

    Common sense does get in the way sometimes, it kept me from buying a Springfield 1911 once for a mere $350 plus my upgrades.

    Just means you will probably spend more money on something else later and rationalize it because "hey...I didnt buy that Ruger." LOL

    Take 2 aspirin and call the gun store to see if they still have the Ruger.

    Getting there. The next step on the way to recovery is to start to divest, to get down to "what you really need",

    The proper treatment for this is for him to send me the money, so that I can buy the Ruger.

    Yup, you're sick alright. Your prescription is for 3,1 hour long Obama speeches and 30 minutes of still photo therapy using Nancy Pelois. If that don't cure ya, I'm at a loss.

    It's not a matter of needing the gun, it's a matter of wanting the gun, just buy it man, treat yourself. Make yourself feel better then you will be happy and cured for a while anyway.

    And once you get down to what you really need... You start all over again buying those guns you want... it's a vicious cycle...
