Need verus want
I can't really say I "need" any more guns, which almost makes me feel guilty when I start thinking about buying another one. But as a I get older, I feel more entitled to treat myself to what I want, even if I don't need it. And to make sure I can rationalize that what I am doing is practical, I have never bought a second copy of the same gun. I used to say to myself that I should have enough handguns to leave one each to each of my children (five), then it was to have one each for my siblings as well, and now I think I should make sure I can also leave at least one to each of my nine (so far) grandchildren. This way the "want" can become a "need", just as I think I will soon "need" a bigger safe.
