    LOL...I got the same sickness.
    I learn to either look at really good deals that don't cost $100 (which there aren't any) or look at something thats outta my price range (the only thing that bothers me there is SA's operator...).

    nahh not untill you start bringing home loricans and ravens LOL
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    It is an addiction, and that's why my New Year's resolution was to not purchase any firearms this year.





    So far, I've only bought a Remington 870 Police shotgun (in February), and handled a few Kahrs at the gunshop...

    Nah - it ain't deadly at all - just a simple addiction which can - if not careful - lead to very empty coffers

    I don't leave with a gun every time but doubt I ever leave without buying at least some ammo, or powder etc!

    So..... let's not start a "GA" Chapter here - I really don't want to see THAT "12 Step Program"!

    I think it's like casinos pumping in extra oxygen to keep you awake - only the gunstores use Hoppe's No. 9 and fresh gunpowder.

    Au Contraire. It's completely normal, sane behaviour!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
