    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:

    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

    Water.

    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..........

    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.

    If Susan didn't control the money...

    That, and we buy dry goods in bulk (and I do mean bulk, to the tune of 1,200lbs every couple years), I'd be in exactly the same situation...

    And my wish list is rather huge.

    I don't have a fixation on clothes or shoes (and living up here there's no need) - so I just have to ration myself to about once a month to go to the nearest addiction center, ah, gun store.

    Coping with a $2,000 a year allowance is so very hard...

    :D

    I could easily spend 10X that much, left to my own devices (and somebody elses Platinum Card)!

    Almost as we speak like 15 mins. ago, I get a call from same store I bought from yesterday. (I kid you not) "I just took in a 4" blue mod 57", you want it?, says the voice on the phone. Fortunately I'm not into .41 mag.. I'm on the road to recovery. But you know....I never had a .41...........

    Hi. My name is Carl and I am a gun junkie. I... (bows head)... have 4 AR-15 rifles in one form or another. I'm now planning to get my 5th one soon. I'm trying to trick :evil: my wife into letting me get another one by means of devious tactics of some sort. I have it bad. Really bad! But you know what? I do NOT want to be cured. I love my addiction. I want even MORE of them. I plan to buy them ALL!!! Yes...(foam drooling from the mouth)... all of them!! Now!! I want :cuss: them all NOW!!!

    If you can still afford the canned stuff you're doing just fine. The dry Ol Roy is nasty!
