    They're putting me in the poorhouse. I won an auction on a S&W on gunbroker. So today I go to my FFL/shopowner to pick up a copy of the FFL to send to the guy I'm buying from. Low and behold,,,,he has a 97% Colt Mustang PlusII for $300. Now I'm out for 2 guns. Fortunately Alpo is cheap and doesn't taste too bad with hot sause.

    popeye -- Alpo may be good but there's nothing like Fancy Feast & a little Cilantro Pace Picante Sauce. :uhoh:

    iamhistory -- I just picked up a "24 Pak" of the creamy chicken Ramen noodles. Guess what's for supper for the next month. :what:

    Yeah, but who could afford premium picante sauce AND popeye's gun buying spree?

    Ramen.......I'm an old fart with high blood pressure. Check the sodium on Ramen. 2400 grams = 1 teaspoon. Thanks for the thought though. For those who can indulge.

    The complete gun-nut's meal


    Lettuce or cabbage.

    Little packets of ketchup.

    Enough energy left to walk to the gunstore and buy ammo.

    I (unexpectedly) bought my USP 45 Compact and my Bushmaster XM-15 on the same day. Later that week I resorted to putting packets of Taco Bell hot sauce on my spaghetti! :(

    Hey, I think most of us could cut back drastically on the amount of food we ingest, and still live happily.

    "...you might be a gun nut"

    If the tires are nearly bald on your pickup, you put-off getting your teeth cleaned, yet you think nothing of buying an extra 1,000 rounds of ammo each month "just in case", you MIGHT be a gun nut.:neener:

    I think my problem is the classic Smiths n Colts are going up in price and while they're out there, they're being snapped up pretty quick. So when I run across a nice one I buy it. I justify it by saying it's an advance birthday present to myself. I'm up to year 4031 now.

    I'm off to my gunsaholic anonomoose meeting now, see youn's later.

    We need to start a fund for malnourished firearm junkies. Maybe a rehab center with a range with rentals all with bad triggers and poor sights. Someone needs to help these junkies...I guess I'm included, too.

    HI! My name is PATH and I'm a gunaholic. I know it may sound facetious but for some of us gun buying becomes an addiction. I have to be very careful or I'll spend money on guns that I should not be spending. The wife then gets really........well you know....

    It can be cured I am told. I really don't want to cured and still sneak gun goodies into the house. I just can't help myself! I guess there are worse things..........

    I eat a LOT of game. And when I say a LOT, I mean a LOT. :D

    Gwinn: "Eat a lot of game" ... I tried that years ago, but the cardboard kept getting stuck in my teeth! :rolleyes:

    Gun rich, cash strapped and after years of it, still at the same place (except there's more guns now). Anybody want a new forum: Gunaholics? We can run it like an AA meeting.

    "Hi, I'm Gary!" "Hi Gary!" "I'm a gunaholic. I buy too many guns."
    At that point, we get into 9mm v. 40 v. 45 acp (or semis v. revolvers or pump v. semi-auto shotguns or whatever) and it goes downhill as we adjourn to shoot at the range.
