... purchasing more firearms. Picked up a Glock 34 MOS from NFA on the way home from work today. After a very long drive from NFA to the M-Casino, I had many thoughts of what else (firearms) do I need or want and came to the conclusion (or feeling) that I am pretty set for a long time (in regard to firearms). Let see how long can I stay clean this time (beside picking up the "few" NFA MS lowers group buy when available).

So tell me, anyone of you is or was in the same boat or it's never enough?

Buying guns is a disease. Ask me how I know. The last gun I purchased was a few hours ago. A Colt .45 MK IV Goverment Model Series 70. Looks like new. Bought it at Cabela's today. With my Cabela's black Visa. Black means I spent more than 25K in the last year. You want to guess on what?

I am running out of room in my six gun safes. No more room for more safes either. What happens next?

I said I was maxed out on guns months ago, but . . .

This will be my last gun. For sure. Until perhaps tomorrow!

I'm pretty much done. Over the last five or six years I've gotten rid of the stuff I never shot, picked up a few things I will, and am perfectly content now with what I have. Unless something interesting literally falls into my lap, I'm not planning on any more purchases.

I think the question is what do you do to try and stop buying guns. I mean let's admit we all suffer from this addiction lol. I recently told myself I was done but the a deal popped up and I figured I'd jump on it before the election panic....in fact I've justified every gun purchase because of an election "panic." However, how will I justify my purchases after the elections? Seriously, what do you guys think about in order to justify a firearms purchase?

I did tried to quit (a few times) buying more firearms before (similar to the multiple times I tried to consolidate calibers), but it didn't last very long. Well, I am going to try again this time (beside picking up the NFA's group buy lowers that I ordered). Wish me luck.


Liar! NFA is NOT on your way home from Chinatown. :laughingman:

It is after you received a call from them with the message of "your gun is in". Now, when you plug this message into the formula and triangulate your route, it will be on the way home. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

I have only bought 7 guns this year (one paperweight, one cheap should be a paperweight).
If I can get the three I am working on now done by Saturday I hope to unload several this weekend and maybe get some monies for some more. Why buy and keep when you can flip :thumbup: Though I think I really want to keep two of the four I might try and sell. :frown5:

I understand why it left a bad taste in your mouth on that long drive home with lots of time to think.

You do know you have to pay that thing off, right? :lol:

I'm pretty well set until laser pistols come out. I may want a couple more mos types as that evolves.

If SHTF I'll be wanting to pick up an M-1. M1 TANK that is... :)

No problem. It will have a zero balance by the end of this week. I always use the card to get the extra points. Five times the points by using the black card.

It's stupid to use cash or debit cards for large purchases. Credit cards usually have some type of rewards.

I save 5% (paid back in the points) using the Black Cabela's card and another 5% for being a vet.

I have $125.00 in Cabela's points right now that I can use on my next Cabela's gun purchase. I would never have this extra $125.00 if I used cash or a debit card.

Guns are fairly good investments. You're not really spending any money, you're saving it as a long term investment. No doubt guns keep much better value than cash.

But if you really want your guns as a short term investment, vote for Hillary. Hillary will make the values raise very fast as gun sales hit another peak!

I stopped buying firearms for a while. I am now buying magazines for several of the ones I own. I am also picking up ammo here and there too.
