    We are up to six in the last month. I think we'd better slow down. The credit card bills are starting to look scary. Four of the six were C&R, though.

    Never more than three in one day. :)

    And that has happened only once.
    I was in uniform that day. Postal service uniform. :D

    I bought three in one day from different sources. A SKS, AR-7, and a rare bent bolt 91/30. I did have seven transactions in July 2002. But three in one day is the most in the shortest time.

    Two in one day. The day I got my SKS I stopped by a friend's house to show it to him and bought a Lorcin 380 from him. I don't know why. I guess I was still excited over getting the SKS.:rolleyes:

    4 over the course of 2 months (a ruger 10/22, a Mossberg 12 Ga, a Yugo SKS and a Kel-Tec P-11, from middle of Nov 2002 through middle of Jan 2003)

    of course, I only own 6 guns total, and only starting buying them early last year.

    Two in one day: my first six-inch Python and a pre-agreement Smith & Wesson model 41—and that was the very week Colt announced it was abandoning the civilian firearms market.

    7 C&R rifles at once. (a 5fer and two individuals)

    3 S&W revolvers at once.

    I've bought 2 in the same day several other times. I think that is why they invented gun shows : )

    I've lost count... I think I've bought three in one day. And probably six or seven in a month.

    Hmmm...about 2 years ago I traded 3 for one. Then got 8 for 2. I also got a kevlar vest somewhere in there. All in one month and all trading, no money involved.

    Sheslinger, your point is don't buy more than what you have money for. I have been guilty of buying impulsively, and I am as bad as anyone here. But I find myself disciplining myself to wait for when a REALLY good deal comes along - and they will.
