    One week ago today, I was at a gunshop buying a 10 long gun capacity safe. Currently, I have 6 long guns. I was swearing up and down: "No more long guns until I'm 18". I was done, I didn't need anymore rifles, all my niches were filled.

    Of course, all my gunnie friends said, "You'll be back", or "That's what they all say".

    Today, I just finished my CMP paperwork for a Rack Grade H&R Greek M-1 Garand.

    I guess there's always a Garand shaped hole in every gunsafe.

    Suggestions & Observations if I may:

    Lower the age limit . I suggest age 6 months years of age. " I will not buy [ enter firearm here] until I reach age 6 months. ( This covers parents buying for new arrivals....work with me here).

    Raise your age limititations. I suggest age 150. " I will stop buying firearms at age 150. ( still working with me here?)

    Build a walk-in safe , design a house around it. That is what a couple of folks I know did. One one : The Blue prints "said" two guest rooms, two bathrooms and whatever. There is a gun safe, a bathroom and a pool table.

    This covers any "shapes" that might follow you home...for a few years anyway.

    :D

    If God would have wanted us to stop buying rifles, He wouldn't have invented walk in closets.

    You just have to take it one day at a time ... just wake up every morning and say "I will not buy a gun today" ... you will be successfull more often then you fail (but when you do fail, don't worry we'll be here for you).


    Just remember pictures next time :neener:

    I wake up and tell myself, "I will not buy a new gun before noon."

    Natedog, You just filled out paperwork for the CMP and you say you're trying to QUIT????

    Man, you've got to get to a group fast.


    SM, If I'm reading you right, you're saying that it might be a bit strange for someone to buy a rifle (or two) for their son BEFORE he's born.
    Does this mean that if a...friend I know, um has a friend who did that that I should tell them not to admit doing that in public for fear of ridicule? Of course the rifles are still in the box 4 years later so they really weren't bought for me--I mean, my friend's friend.

    If you're going to buy a 10 long gun safe, go to Costco. You know, they sell in bulk - so you can get like six of those at a time. That should cover you for a few months.
    (I got a 14 'cuz I only had 6 and now I have 18 only 9 months later - learn from my mistake, buy in bulk)
