Well, I told myself that I wasn't going to buy any more handguns for awhile. I told myself that I had plenty to keep me busy, especially now that I have been shooting mostly .22lr. Apparently, I don't listen.

I stopped into one of my favorite shops today to look at .22 rifles. The 'pusher' behind the counter said that he had something for me to look at that they had just got in. He knows that I really like revolvers and uses this to his advantage. He wanted to show me a S&W 13-3 with a 3" bbl. I asked, "What's the price." "$275", he said. So, I put some money down on it and walked out the door shaking my head.

I was asking myself that same question as I was walking out the door shaking my head. The best that I could come up with was that I didn't have one.

You're missing half the fun.... :uhoh:

I did exactly the same thing a while back. :D

I'm envious.

Haven't seen one of those around here. In fact, I don't recall seeing a model 65 around here.

Lots of 66s but 13s, 19s and 65s are sparse. At least where I hang out.

13s are unlucky, send it to me, then I could have 2 to make them a 26.
I would give you $300 right now.

Funny how this process seems to be fairly common among gun owners...maybe if we set up some type of "round robin" whereby we all traded guns with each other for, say 2 week periods of time, after which we would rotate the guns around, and so forth....nah; that would take the fun out of "impulse buying":)

and some of you would have no guns by round 2 of that whole scenario.......

Any Smith and Wesson with a 3 inch barrel has a built in Sirens' Song.

You were doomed before you walked in the door. The "pusher" had your number and he knew it. Kizmet I say, only in a parallel universe could the outcome have come out differently.

Now where are the damn pictures. :neener:

Its terrible, and I know how bad you feel. I said the same thing, really, I've got all I want.... Picked a Colt Officers .22 tuesday :banghead: :rolleyes:. I really really don't need anything else.:scrutiny:

Now let see it!!!

I did that and then bought two .38 Specials. You can't have just one, I guess.

Don't be too hard on yourself. You never said how long your "awhile" would be.

not been in a gun shop for 172 days.

I was even in Gander Mountain the other day and didn't impulse purchase any ammo. But I meant to. Brick of .22LR.

No More Hanguns For Awhile

Yeah, me too. Hanguns are awfully depressing. They drop the guy with that rope around his neck. It hits bottom and snaps and his tongue is all hanging out.

No more hanguns for me, either.

Now, handguns, that's maybe a different story.

I fixed it. See what I mean, though? I'm was so disgusted with myself that I lost my ability to spell.:D

I just picked up a bobbed hammer 3 inch M13 for $230 two weeks ago. This week it was a near mint 17-4 with box, cleaning kit, etc. for $400.

I started talking to my daughter about pistols and she said, "Dad, you said you weren't going to buy anymore." To which I replied, "Well at least not this year." So I have something to look forward to next year!
