addiction is baaaad Mkayyy?

got a .44 cal navy Brasser (I think) on GB for with the holster AND shipping for $100.00!! just could NOT pass that up! I call her ugly betty

Then today at work I just happened to notice this little gem with no bids and picked her up for $125.00+shipping+tax I figure just short of $150.00.

I am now in a self imposed exhile until after the holidays. Two pistols in 4 days? A record for me for sure.

nice for the price.
I want a square triggerguard but haven't found one resonable enough yet.

....and you can quit anytime you want to, you just don't want to.

My wife doesn't view it as an "addiction" . . . . she thinks it's more of an "affliction"! Whatever the diagnosis . . . . you're not alone . . . we all suffer from it! There is no cure . . . .

Congrats on your new additions! Keep 'em separated though or they'll multiply . . . they seem to be fertie little critters . . . sort of like rabbits! Enjoy!
If a pair of '51 Navies were good enough for Billy Hickok, then a single Navy on my right hip is good enough for me . . . besides . . . I'm probably only half as good as he was anyways. Hiram's Rangers Badge #63

There ya go Brushy, now you got a Schneider & Glassick, more or less. I gotta lay off new purchases for a little while too. Got my daughter coming for Christmas and such, so I best enjoy the ones I have now.

I first got addicted as a teen with a .75 cannon and then a single shot .44 kit gun, managed to fight it with the help of the USAF for 20 yrs, now I've got 2 gun cabinets full and counting...they just keep calling my name...

Trust me, you don't want a Dragoon trigger guard on anything. Guaranteed to draw blood from your knuckles. Looks cool but hurts.
