      Talking I am Hooked - My new purchases

      Hi ALL:

      Most of you probably know that I have been in the hand guns very recently with my search to purchase my first hand gun..The list I came up with ended with a tie between the CZ 75 and the SIG P226..I ended up buying two CZ's:
      1. The big guy: CZ 75 SP01 Tactical, with the KADET kit 22LR
      2. and the little brother: CZ 75 D PCR COMPACT (same size as a P01)

      I love both guns but I still have a special place for the SIG in my heart..Also, last weekend I tried the S&W revolvers in 500 Magnum and the 357 Magnum and I fell in love with the cowboy action style..Well Today I did it...YES..!! Chichinnngggg..!!...

      I found a gunshop about 20 miles from where I work that specializes in used handguns..I visited the store and WOWOWOWOW..!! I couldn't leave without buying a S&W 686 and a SIG P226 (Certified pre Owned)..I paid $450 for a blue S&W model 686 w/6in barrel and a wooden grip..I love this model.. and $550 for the certified SIG..The price was including tax and everything (Out of the door as they say)..I can't wait for the weekend to try these new toys at the range..They both look and feel in great shape..I still can not beleive what I did..This store is so tempting, I am planning not to even set a foot in it till after a year or so..The prices are so right on the money..You could see Beretta's, Springfields, Glocks all in the $250-$300 range..And they all look great..

      So here is my collection till now:

      1. The big guy: CZ 75 SP01 Tactical, with the KADET kit 22LR
      2. and the little brother: CZ 75 D PCR COMPACT (same size as a P01)
      3. their cousin from SWISS & Germany the SIG SAUER P226
      4. And old grandpa Smith & Wesson Model 686 - 6" barrel - (357 Mag and it shoots 38 Special)


      Life is good indeed...

      +1...Well on the way to addiction. I might remind you that you will not find intervention on this site. Just a word of warning.

      Congrats on the choices...all good ones.

      Hi All..I just added these new comers to my collection:

      1. A Springfield XDM(9)
      2. A Beretta 92FS (two tones)
      3. A ruger 10/22 rifle (very basic but that's what I want for target practicing and small hunt)

      pictures to follow soon.

      Gotta agree there. The CZ looks nothing like a 1911.

      Did you hit the lottery? I wish I could get 5 guns in a 30 day time span. Hell, I'm thinking of doing the unthinkable and selling 2 so I can buy 1.

      Hi Todd,

      No I didn't hit the lottery (I wish though), i just got a bonus check from my employer for being the "ideal" employee..I am helping all new engineers and training them to accelerate their performance, and i am doing this on my own time, so my employer appreciated that and I was rewarded..Then I in turn converted the bonus check and rewarded my self by this purchase, and gave the rest of the money to my wife so she can do some shopping and b this she would approve my purchases

      Now I have the collection that i always wanted..

      Congrats, you mean you've started the collection you always wanted. Somehow, you always want "just one more".
