My reaction is...

....That it is an "affliction". It should be treated as a medical condition is treated.

Medication - another rifle or revolver

Therapy -to be administered either on the range, at your work bench, or on this forum.

I have long passed the addicted stage and progressed to the afflicted. Not by accident that there is always room in my safe, for one more SideCocker. ...

I just remembered that I don't have a .40. ....

Don't blow down the barrel and;
Be Safe !!!

I feel ya, I was solidly a pistolero, until I experienced shooting percussion and flintlock rifles. I now am the proud owner of a springfield Hawken .50, and we got the antique .38 rifle I inherited to fire. Now I'm hooked on rifles too!
