    Someone stop me.

    I was on my way to the gun shop. I was going to look at a gun for my wife. Drove a half an hour in the snow in my 350z just to look because I'm so excited. On the way, I stopped in to the police station to see if my CCW permit showed up early, and it had. Then I got really excited because I could pick up the M&P compact 9mm that I had paid for on Wednesday. I walked into the shop and he said, "Hey, I just got your approval." I said I'll also take the .38 for my wife. Oh, and some Speer HP's. Oh and some .38 target ammo. Oh, and a new Galco holster. I think I may be addicted.

    I entered this forum a year ago and approached it like a 12 step program after the excitement from my first purchase. My 12th gun is coming in on the 26th the month, a 95+% Ruger Security Six 6" Bicentennial edition from 1976. This should mean I'm cured right?!?!?!

    What, did you join the Gun of the Month club? If so, uhh..where do I sign up? Also, I'm obviously in the the wrong line of work, since I can't afford to buy at the rate of some of you guys.

    Mine was a pretty irresponsible purchase, honestly. That's why I blame it on "the sickness".

    Addiction is a disease. You can't let a little thing like funds, or lack thereof, get in the way. Also, I have sold as some guns as I have purchased others so my current cache only consists of 9 guns. If you really want to look at a half full glass, since the election, guns are probably one of the best investments out there. If kept in good condition and if bought prior to the election, most guns, especially hi-caps, have held their value or appreciated a bit.

    Wow, now I feel a lot better.
    I did see a new Kel Tec SU 16 yesterday for $500.

    I can't say anything. I just did an impulse buy last weekend. I picked up a Mossberg Maverick Security 88. I wanted an Evil Black Rifle, but I can't afford one right now, so I went with the Evil Black Shotgun.

    I'm still waiting on my bailout from the feds. Then I can go on that buying spree...err, help out the economy by being a good consumer.
