    Maybe I was Dumb...

    Walked in to a local gun shop that I visit infrequently. I was just browsing to see what the had in the way of AR and M1-A magazines. I walked to the back of the store and saw 3 Hungarian AMD-63 rifles. I handled one for a few moments and ended up walking out of the store with a new rifle(paid for it of course). I figure might as well get stuff while I am single. There are very few women who would encourage my hobby I imagine, the exceptions being the ladies on this forum.

    Nice purchase, and of course, every gun purchase is nice.

    Stay armed...buy a lot when you're single ...stay safe!

    Most of my weapons I bought when I was single in the Marines early 80's. Don't regret any of them, all have gone up in value. Nice purchase, congrats!

    Look at the bright side of being "dumb".
    At the very least., from here on out, you will be able to resell your gun for lots more than you paid for it. Look at it as being an investment.

    A good part of my "arsenal" was gifts from my wife for major B'days or anniversaries. That P-08 Luger (numbers matching) for my five-oooh has a special place; I wouldn't have bought it myself - wouldn't consider putting that much money in a pistol - but I sure was happy to get it as a gift !!!

    Sounds good! AMD-65? You know, those have always looked appealing to me. I don't know why I don't have one. You did however forget to post pics of your new addition!

    Not dumb, smart. However, the part of you OP that is dumb is that you are entertaining the idea of marrying some woman who would attempt the restrict your hobby. DON'T DO THAT. That would be stupid IMO.

    Ramrod, someday I will have to post pictures of the "family". It is still growing, however. I am working on adopting another EBR so it won't be alone in the world.

    The only time a gun purchase is dumb is when you cant afford it. IMHO gun values have nowhere to go but UP!
