Not using ANY excuse to buy another rifle is moronic. Repeat after me. ANY excuse to buy another rifle is a good excuse. No crisis should be allowed to go to waste. Honey, I can't find any .22 LR ammo I NEED to go buy a .17 Hornet.
Agreed, but using it as an excuse for the wife or even just a general excuse to one's own self is one thing, actually believing it is a completely different matter.
