    I've told myself a million times and then some that I have enough and I'm done buying anymore handguns.
    Heck, had a feller call me last night with a S&W 66 and I just let go of one a while back......(have to have a look at it anyways;))

    Wow you have a million handguns???!!! ;) I wish I did.

    I certainly know what you mean about saying, "Alright I have enough now," only to find myself buying another firearm before long. But I usually buy rifles so I can act like I'm sane in this thread. :D

    ..... and now you can get into re-loading ( a great hobby ) and keep all of
    your guns fed.

    For many it's the "more, more, more" or the "never enough" mentality. file I went through a phase where I was buying a bunch (used to be part of the gun a month club for quite a while) I'm come to realize that it's not so, at least for me. Quality over quantity! Anyone can own a bunch of lesser quality ones and say they have a lot of guns. I'd rather have a single GOOD one than a bunch of lesser ones. So now I just don't see any more than a couple new ones each year. Started the "really want list" years ago and there's buy a couple remaining. With nearly 100 firearms on hand, I just don't see the need no have the desire to keeping adding them.

    My heart goes out to you BlkHawk. I have an idea. Why don't you let me lighten your load and I'll take a few of them off your hands?:D

    Highboy You posted a pix of your sa revolvers once. You know you have to many of these. I can help you out. Send about half to me and I will put them to good use. :lmao2:

    :):):)

    When ever I get a new gun I think I have all I need. A few weeks latter I find a new one that I have to have.

    My state is helping me with this issue. They take most of my money in taxes :mad:

    gvw3, if I ever was to just give my guns away, there is a good chance you would be on that list. But a man just can't have enough guns.:D
