    kyfarmer, I have recently been struck with the same affliction from which you suffer. Like an alcoholic eyeing up a bottle of vodka at the liquor store, I find myself lusting after the few remaining boxes of ammo at the sports shop. If I try to reason with myself that I have enough, I break out in a cold sweat and worry about someone coming along and buying up those last boxes...and...I can't...help...myself. When I should be working, or doing something productive at home, I find myself on gunbroker.org, dreaming, scheming, plotting. Who will notice if I buy another one? I tell myself I can stop this obsession any time I choose, but I know, and maybe you do too, that the attraction is too powerful....and I am a slave to the weapons :cry:

    LOL. I had that same addiction 5-6 years ago, but mine was guitars. In a year and a half I bought 9 of them. Didn't really need them, I had four to begin with. I just liked them. :rolleyes:

    I made the mistake of stopping at the "puppy store" last night.
    Walked out with:
    Les Bear 1911
    TC 30.06 bolt-action rifle
    .223 single shot rifle with scope and bipod
    Ruger GP100 (stainless with 6" barrel).

    lol, I am not alone!

    I try to limit myself to one or two a year.... I am not always successful. Now am trying to force myself to part with one every time I bring a new one home. The trouble is that there are really none that I want to get rid of....

    That's what I got as well. The price he was asking was too sweet to pass on. New in box drum roll please... $299.

    Found a Nikon Monarch scope on the shelf to put on it. :)

    Nice Thread Title

    I just wanted to stop by and say that there are many out there who have the same affliction and not to worry too much. There is a newer blog out there for people who suffer as we do at Firearms Anonymous if you want to check it out.
