    :eek: I bought my first sidearm (pre ban Glock 17) for protecting myself from Road Ragers, Carjackers & other predators...then it became evident that it would become a good investment (crime law 1994) so I put it in the safe and bought a 7 shot Smith .357 revolver because it was unusual & kinda cool...Then I found a used Smith 65 for a great price...I sold my house in the city and built one in the country...House in the country ain't complete without a shotgun...then I needed protection from water moccassins when fishing so I bought one of those little .22 revolvers....I guess what I have a hard time understanding is why I need so many different firearms ? :p :fuss: :rolleyes: :nod:

    You sound like me! My wife just rolls her eyes at my addiction. Says it would be cheaper if I was an alcoholic!

    There are never enough or too many! Each firearm is distinctive and has its own appeal. Not unlike women. Fortunately, they don't mind how many other firearms you have. Unlike women.

    At one time I felt I was incomplete without a pistol gripped high capacity full powered semi-automatic rifle, and that after getting one, I'd have everything I want and need. Then I got one and discovered that there is no perfect gun, rather that every gun has its advantages. So I didn't stop there, but have run out of resources to get more, so it'll be a while. I also learned that it's better to focus on having a few good guns and being proficient with them than trying to increase your capabilities by buying different guns. It costs less and is much easier than having tons of guns and different ammo for each.
    Nothing against collecting, but I think we spread our financial and intellectual resources too thin by buying too many guns. That said, I'll probably be buying guns until I die, just not as fast or as compulsively as when I started. At this moment, I see fewer gun purchases ahead than behind.

    I rationalize that there are no perfect guns when I buy one...I was just wondering why we feel like we need more than say oh I don't know...3 ?
