    I don't know about you guys but I have had my eye on a Sig Sauer P238 for a while and I thought the price tag was pretty high for a small .380 but you can't deny that the gun looks very sleek and sexy.
    Now all of a sudden I here about the Sig Sauer P938 that is pretty much the same thing but in 9mm, I was so excited until I saw the price tag...Does this ever happen to you?

    Did you buy all the cheaper cool ones first? Cause that would do it.

    Still happens when you get older, but the results are even more traumatic.

    Ohhh man! Anyone need your yard mowed?

    I donno what it is, maybe it's just all the buzz around new toys, or the high-pressure subliminal sales tactics, lol, but it certainly happens to the best of us. Heck, I hate Kimber. I've never had an enjoyable shooting experience with one of their pistols in my hand, but they make this little thing look like it just has to be my next purchase or I might as well donate all my other firearms to charity, and the more I read about it, the more I think "Heck, they're right!" I try to hold off and keep a level head, though, 'cause I know it'll pass, at least until Taurus introduces another new magnum-sized paper weight for me to drool over.

    Yeah the 938 is almost as buzz-worthy as the Kimber Solo.

    Yep, I have a feeling getting my hands on a P938 might be kind of hard this year. I will be turning 21 soon and would like to get my CC permit.. would make a pretty good B-day present to myself :rolleyes:

    Everything I have even the slightest interest in starts at around $700 with the more expensive ones coming in around $3,000. Yes the expensive one comes from Les Baer, no it's NOT a 1911.

    All the time. I have been staring at a Knighthawk GRP Recon for almost 8 months now. And it looks like I will continue to stare at it until I win the lotery becuase I can't really affor a $3200 gun right now.

    What until you think you already have every handgun you ever lusted after.

    And then the 2012 Les Baer catalog arrives in the mail.
    And you see this!

    My next "cool" gun was the Walther PPQ. Luckly for me it came in under $500.

    I feel your pain. Just when I start really wanting a keltec sub 2k 9mm/.40 that takes Glock mags the price is up $100.00 over a year or two ago and is nowhere to be found around here.

    p.s. if anyone can help me let me know

    S&W Governor. Three calibers. Scandium. Tritium. Laser (if you want). A bit over $500.

    Sounds cool, and cheap.

    Yeah, I know the feeling too. I have been lusting over a few things lately. A Sig P226 Elite Stainless, a Nighthawk T3, and a nice Over/Under for sporting clays. None of them will happen any time soon.:banghead:
