I think I have a problem!!

In the last 4 days I have bought 3 handguns. Saturday I got a Beretta 92FS and a used Sig P220. I was pretty happy with that but yesterday I got an itch to buy another one so today I bought a Ruger P89. So what do ya think? Is this a problem or what?

You only have a problem if...

1. Your wife finds out. Girlfriend can stand in as default.
2. You spent your grocery money to do this. Hope you like ramen noodles.
3. You don't have the money left to buy something of equal or greater value to compensate above mentioned wife of girlfriend.
4. You don't have money left for ammo.

Otherwise I give you a clean bill of health, until your water bill is due that is.

Good Shooting

It's all good If you have the cash to do it and you're not hurting anyone's self esteem I don't see a problem. BTW if you want to give to the "Help Modifiedbrowning buy more Firearms charity" just let me know.

It's only a problem if your gunstore won't accept your wife or kids in trade.

Red forgot one thing-

Only a problem if you spent money allocated for the following:

a) rent, or house payment
b) utilities- light's, water, or sewage
c) gas

If none of this was spent, I don't think you have a problem,
cuz you can always replace and old-lady; and a girl friend.


Best Wishes,

Thanks for shairing that!

*Heh* I can identify with the problem
Fortunately, the state of California has wisely moved in to save me from myself by limiting my acquisition of these expensive little luxury items (The cheap ones are illegal) to one a month. My creditors applaud this move
I just bought a rifle yesterday which somewhat sooths my craving,
kinda like substituting Morphine for Heroin
Thank You Gray Davis, and the Liberal Californis legislature form saving me form myself.....You know what's Best

That's the problem.

You keep spending all that cash and you'll end up like another member here "living in a Van down by the river".

Enjoy your new additions and be safe.

Well you could have bought a Browning Hi Power

and spoiled all the others. But, then what would you do with the extra money?

Hi.......My name is Sam and I am a gun crank. I am so pleased to see so many of my fellow gun cranks at this meeting...........

"2. You spent your grocery money to do this. Hope you like ramen noodles. "

If you really need to cut the food bill to the bone, Ramen is way too expensive. Get bulk noodles and dumpster dive at McDonalds etc.

I think the real problem is ammo. If you go order some bulk stuff to go practice, it's going to be almost a week before you can go to the range. I really feel sorry for you. I HATE waiting for ammo.

Whatever ya do..avoid the Pager Pal, also known to me as the "Pain Pal"

It was terrible trying to hide a G27 in one. Not to mention I looked EXTREMELY happy all day long. Very bad at the library.

Good Shooting
