    Well I finally bought the Walther P22 I wanted. While waiting on my paperwork to call in I wandered the gunshop and checked out the racks of cheapie .22 rifles and single shot shotguns they have out there....

    And I discoverd a Winchester 270 pump action .22 with a little 4x15 scope on it.

    Man, I haven't seen one of those for like 20-25 years since I was in Boy Scouts. That is nostalgia!

    Anybody else have one of those moments?

    (PS: I am still strongly considering going back to buy that Win270 just for sentimentality and to teach my kids to shoot their first rifle)

    yup walked in once and found a colt Matchtarget woodsman 4 inch NIB sitting on the shelf, looked at it and said wow, then put it down and looked at the shottie i was buying and got it and walked out the door...stopped on the sidewalk and said to myself " When am i ever going to see one of those again,?" walked back in and put money down on it. Now it sits next to its 6 inch brother in the safe...NOT ONCE have i ever thought gee i shouldn't have...In reference to those types of purchases.

    Same thing happened when i found my Model 71 winchester. I walked in to buy another gun I had talked the owner about, but when I saw the 71 all of a sudden there were no other guns in the shop. I just had to have it. (how can you see a gun that looks like this and now want it.)

    A couple months ago I was in a local gunshop where I say a mint condition .44 Automag. That took me back to my early teenage years (almost 20 years ago) when hobby shops used to carry plastic model gun kits. I built one of those kits in .44 Automag when I was around 12 and was convienced at the time I would buy a real one when I was old enogh.

    I have noted that, whenever I see something I want and have to debate with myself about whether or not to buy it. If I don't buy it, I often then later decide I want it (Happens often), when I go back for it, it's gone (also happens often.)
