Violate your rule and it is not a rule. Your principles go out the window. While your initial commitment does have some validity. If you do it, then change your name. You'll be just another suck-up firearm friend like the rest of us. No loyalty. Just wheel & deal as we strive to obtain what we want even though we may not need it at the time. Then down the road exchange it for another firearm or the money to get something else.
I guess if I can't depend on you to adhere to your own rule, then there's no point in believing in anything.
