    well how can i start this off. since i'm in college i needed some cash fast so i sold my springer mil-spec which happens to be my only gun :banghead: i really needed the money because i met this girl i really liked and we "clicked" right away the first time i saw her. well after going on a couple of dates with her and talking to her for a 2 weeks she just says she wants to be friends. :( one mistake you can say is i sold my only gun and that i let my emotions really get to me now this is really getting painful because i really really got into this girl. well next week i'll be picking up a new springfield loaded, i thought that if i kinda spoil myself that i can get over this girl by looking forward to that well i don't think thats going to help that much. time will only be a cure. :(

    by the way one of you fellow THR'ers really knows me in person please be respectful and keep it to your self i don't want anyone else knowing thanks.

    Thus we gain wisdom.

    It's the really painful lessons that I remember best.

    All I can say is that if the mistakes I make are mostly in new areas, then I'm satisfied.

    Some advice:

    No good can ever come of publicizing your mistakes. Unless, of course, if they're really funny. Like walking outside by mistake while still wearing your girlfriend's undergarments, or farting real loud in church. If you make a funny mistake, at least others can laugh at you. Your story doesn't qualify. I'd keep it to myself.

    P.S. - Women are irritating. I wish they came with specs, like guns do. Then you could just read the sticker and decide if you wanted to buy or not. Oh, and an owner's manual would be nice, too.

    Guns are forever

    and once gone, they're gone. Women (and men for you ladies out there) come & go all the time. Unless you're married and need the money for medical expenses or for the kid, no woman is worth losing a gun over.

    I've been selling guns lately but only ones I bought from friends to keep them from going to the pawnshop.

    For every gun I sell I try to buy one I really like to replace it.

    As for selling guns for women ..only if your mother, wife or daughter needs an operation and there is no other possible way to get the money.


    A few dinners out, drinks and maybe whatever comes next
    leaves you with a fond memory or two but nothing to keep under your pillow or hang over the mantle

    Find a girl that likes to go shooting and buys her own ammo.

    :D That reminds me of a friend who set up some range time for him & his wife, and me and my wife. Once we had been shooting for about 20 minutes, the range officer called a "cease fire." My friend's wife said to him "And don't even think about asking me to pick up your brass! "

    So jsalcedo, to add to your wish list of what really makes a woman desirable, may I add "And get a girl that will even pick up your brass!"? :neener: geegee

    You're in luck. In a recent survey conducted by the NRA, AARP, and Harper's Bazarre Magazine, it was proven conclusively that picking up your man's brass will not only make you feel younger, but is less dangerous than Botox treatments! :p geegee

    You are young. There will be other guns, and other girls.

    Take your time getting cynical, and do it the old-fashioned way. Earn it.

    Earning it takes a hell of a lot more than one gun, or one girl for that matter. :p ;)

    Spend a few bucks on a Grammar class. One that teaches about periods and commas.

    It will be money well spent.

    Just maybe you will be able to communicate with the Ladies a little better.

    Sell your girlfriend and buy more guns.

    Seriously, you are obviously young and none of this really matters in the long run.

    In the future invest a little more time. 2 weeks really don't allow you to know anyone.
    Selling your pistol to impress her would only go so far. What would you do when the funds from the sale ran out?

    i just wasn't thinking

    i just wasn't really thinking when i was just focused on her. i put her in front of everything else in my life and personal hobbies (which are firearms). it's just what Happy Bob stated, "It's really the painful lessons i remember best" well i know what to do next time. i can't believe this is just 2 weeks. anyways well i'm off to pick up my Springfield Loaded Blk Stainless and maybe a Glock 21. thanks for your advice fellow THR'ers

    My aunt (RIP) bought my service gun for me and my (ex) wife bought my off duty. They`re both gone but I`ll never sell the guns. :D

    Love is a many-splintered thing...

    "A mistake I can't stop" doesn't exist. Given the time to think clearly (and a chance to come up for air when drowning in hormones), you can ALWAYS stop in time to avoid a mistake.

    A mistake you can't "undo"- now that's another story altogether. I've certainly had a few of those, and like you, most of my worst ones have have social security numbers, instead of serial numbers. Corrections to 'mistakes' with the former are infinitely more expensive, in my experience. They are also quite educational, in an unpleasant sort of way.

    Live, learn, and enjoy the passionate existence that is youth. The right girl and the right guns eventually come along, and the satisfaction of knowing that is one of life's little sweetners.

    Wish I was your age again- but only if I knew what I know now.

    Actually, the ideal woman is one who hates to go shooting, but LOVES to reload ammo. ;)

    A gun will never ask you if it looks fat.

    You can never get a gun pregnant although it is dangerous to use them without proper protection.

    You don't have to buy them anything unless you think it will make them better for you.

    They only eat ammo.

    They won't complain if you leave them at home while you shoot another gun.

    The more guns the better.

    You can't live without them, but you can live with them.

    They are quiet unless you want them to make noise.

    They don't come with emotional baggage.

    They don't come with inlaws.

    You can spend the otherwise wasted ring money on, you guessed it, more guns...

    My answer...

    Top 10 Reasons Why a Handgun Is Better Than a Woman

    In reverse order, they are:

    10. You can trade an old .44 for two new 22s

    9. You can keep one handgun at home and have another for when you're on the road.

    8. If you admire a friend's handgun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times.

    7. Your primary handgun doesn't mind if you have a backup.

    6. Your handgun will stay with you even if you're out of ammo.

    5. A handgun doesn't take up a lot of closet space.

    4. Handguns function normally every day of the month.

    3. A handgun doesn't ask "Do these new grips make me look fat?"

    2. A handgun doesn't mind if you go to sleep after you use it.

    AND.....THE NUMBER ONE REASON WHY A HANDGUN IS BETTER THAN A WOMAN....

    1. You can buy a silencer for a handgun

    There's something I don't understand. You sold a gun to get money to take this girl out. Then she gave you the friends speech. Now you have enough money not only to get a new gun, but maybe two new guns.

    Uh, so why did you have to sell the first gun? That don't make no kinda sense.
