    For some reason this week has been especially kind to my firearm collection.

    A guy at a range wanted to buy some body armor from me. I sold it and then see a guy selling a Sig 228. I bought it in almost LN condition with the exception of some light surface rust. I immediatly rushed it to the local ER, or gunsmith in this condition, who got it all off. The gun looks almost new now.

    THEN I see that CDNN is selling Sig 228's for $400.00 and I called to find out what they have. A guy named Neil was very cool and patient explaining what they have a LNIB blued 228 for around $400.00. Now being that these guns are the size of my beloved 229, but weigh about as much as a 239....I couldn't pass it up. I bought it and had them ship it to my FFL, same guy as my smith.

    So then this other guy named Dave wanted my Glock 17 for an Excellent PCR +$75.00.

    I got all three within 2 days of each other, since the delay to the one being smithed. I spent Sunday lovingly oiling and cleaning them up...didn't get to shoot any but will rectify that this weekend.

    So now I have only 1 Glock 17, which is okay, the gun is a workhorse...and probably will start to lose carry time to the 228, 229 and PCR. Now I just need to get another PCR to double up.

    Besides, have you guys noticed that once you learn to shoot a Glock, you have to relearn with every other pistol out there? Since I have to carry Sigs at work, I think I should stick with one grip angle and leave it at that. The Glock will be more or less my night gun due to the rails.

    Man...

    2x 229 in .40

    2x 228 in 9mm

    1 PCR and 1 Glock 17

    My to buy list?

    1 additional PCR and a couple of Sig 226's...one in 9mm one in .40.

    I got a FN Hi Power and a Kimber Aluminum Compact last week. One of those 228s is on my list but may have to wait as the Kimber purchase was rather unexpected.

    You have obviously got a problem. A major problem.

    Come, repeat after me . . . .

    My name is Alduro and I am a gun nut.

    There, feel better now?

    Go and buy yourself a couple of more guns to celebrate this wonderful self admission.

    Can't do it...in my line of work it's akin to saying I'm insane.

    Now you need a Sig P226 or P220 with a rail for night-time and you're all set. :neener:
