I try to buy a new gun every month or two months. Something different that I dont have or something i do have that i "need" another! Earlier this past year, I got into reloading and now i can shoot everything i own to my hearts content and make a thousand rounds a month of something i might need. This is an expensive hobby, but its also an investment and as long as you understand that and it gives you joy youll be fine. However, if youre trying to "prep" for something, youll go broke quickly.. guns are a part of my life, not my life! just my 2 cents worth.
