    In the last few months I have gone from being primarily a handgun shooter w/ a couple of shotguns for trap & home defense to adding on an M1A and an AR project gun...I'm even thinking of adding a bolt action gun into the mix and round out the group! :cool:

    Sooo many guns, so little money :D

    Wow. None of the rest of us have ever had that problem.:evil:

    You might be able to console yourself by understanding that rifles are engineering/art/protection/fun/history combined with an investment in something that will be priceless if/whenever our society ever completely breaks down.

    Yup, those things happen. In 2001 I had 5 rifles...now I have 28...a little thing called a C&R happend in between there. (Oh, nobody get excited, the G36C is my one and only airsoft)

    Same thing happened to me. In 2003 i bought an M1 Garand from CMP. Neat rifle but it still didn't sway me away from my first love, handguns. A couple of years ago i bought a Ruger Mini 30 with a scope. Nice rifle but it just didn't do anything for me. Last year my buddy gave me a German Mauser M48 as a birthday presant. Hmmm....nice shooter...

    Then in March of this year my friend decided he wanted my Mini 30 more than i did. I took a Yugo SKS, a Russian Mosan-Nagant M44 and a handfull of cash for the Mini 30. Loved the SKS.I really liked the way the M44 handled and it was a joy to shoot (except it's about 6" high @ 100yds). I figured with a synthetic stock (AT) and the bayo removed it would make a neat little carbine to carry in my Jeep. It did.

    Then in March i bought a i bought a Turkish Mauser...then in April i bought a British Enfield No1 Mk. 3...then a few days ago i bought another German M44.
    Tomorrow i'm picking up an Enfield No 5 Mk 1 jungle carbine that' been converted to .308 (by Gibbs) and fitted with synthetic stock.

    And i've applied for my C&R....

    It hasnt happened with me yet. I am not going to go on a major spending spree unless the 86 ban goes away or I become super rich (which isnt likely for the next few years).

    Lately I have taken a liking to suppressors. Have one on the way for my AK, and am about to buy a suppressed pistol caliber bolt action as well.

    Wow, where the hell did you get a G36C?

    Funny tho, for the last year or so I've been on the "I'm done buying guns" side of the fence :banghead: Then I stumbled on a great deal for a NIB M1A for less than a grand OTD and then the ever so progressive state I live in legalized "off list" ar lowers and that project began...Let's see, I guess I've got cowboy guns & blackpowder in my future!
    Once a gun nut, always a gun nut :rolleyes:
