The only ammo I've bought in the last 12 months is bulk packs of .22LR from Wal-Mart. I cannot bring myself to pay the current prices for center-fire ammo. Which brings me to the real point of this post: Even though I refuse to buy a single round of center-fire ammo at current prices, I am still just as interested in buying new guns as I was a year or two ago. I'm still averaging about one new/used gun every 60 days. I own alot of guns I've never fired.

What about you guys?

nope, just making me more carefully in how I am shooting.

WTF? No way.

Bought me a CZ 82 in 9mm Mak last week. Lotso fun....

The only guns I have been looking at and buying is rimfire stuff.

I have always been a rimfire junkie, but with ammo prices I am even more.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:30:21 AM EST
yep, won't be buying anything for at least another year, maybe even two.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:30:33 AM EST
I bought a spike's kit for my AR and have been having fun with that.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:30:43 AM EST
I dont have the money to buy new firearms..... :(
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:32:00 AM EST
I just bought my first 1911.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:32:25 AM EST
Definitely no need to buy new guns right now with ammo availability the way it is.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:32:37 AM EST
Nope. Not at all.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:32:37 AM EST
Nope. Now I'm looking into getting another revolver. Not sure what caliber or brand, just getting the itch for something.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:33:24 AM EST
I haven't lost interest, but am also not shooting as much. I decided to build an AR for the first time to help offset the non-shooting boredom. Keeps me busy looking for components, and when its all said and done, I'll have another AR15.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:34:09 AM EST
Yep, I wanted to get a good .357 revolver but adding a new caliber to my collection right now doesn't seem like a good idea to me right now.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:34:33 AM EST
I saw a good deal on a Glock17 that I passed up because I would not be able to shoot it. (unless I pay $15 a box for 9mm)
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:35:44 AM EST
Availability issues with 9mm has kept me from buying a competition gun.

At least I'm not the only one....I was beginning to think I was.

My resources have been re-directed toward ammo purchases. I am not going to purchase another gun until I have enough ammo stockpiled for the ones I have.

I'm almost there
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:48:04 AM EST
No, the amount of my paycheck did it.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:50:10 AM EST
No, I bought my son a Marlin 336 and am about to get myself one next week.

Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:50:51 AM EST
No but the number of guns I own that I have never shot has gone up drasticly..

It hasn't changed things for me other than making me really glad I got into reloading a few years back. Even before I reloaded, I had been saving brass. So, I am still at the range pretty often.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:53:46 AM EST
After the Elections I have gotten:
Unissued Yugo SKS....traded it for a 99$ AR receiver.
TT-33 and 2 cases of ammo
Ruger 22/45

Now I am working on getting my .22 can up and running again. ( I was having baffle strikes )
After that I'm either getting

CZ75 Duty
M1 Garand
Black Powder long gun.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:54:12 AM EST
No, it made me buy a dedicated .22LR upper.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 11:56:54 AM EST
Not at all.

No, but it's made me get a little bit more selective of the calibers I buy.

Before I was looking at expanding my collection of guns in 9mm and .380 ACP. Now, it's looking at getting into .40 S&W, .22 mag, and a rifle in .30 caliber.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:02:30 PM EST
No. I have a nice stash of ammo. Been stocking up since 01.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:07:06 PM EST
I don't buy guns because they are really icky.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:12:41 PM EST
I should have lost interest, but I can't stop.

Eyeballing a new g-26.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:14:01 PM EST
Just bought a Garand :D
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:20:57 PM EST
No. I reload. Ammo flows from my presses like cheap beer from a frat party keg
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:23:22 PM EST
No. But, I already had quite a bit of ammo saved up and I reload.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:24:01 PM EST
A little. I don't want to buy a gun and not be able to shoot it.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:24:14 PM EST
No I have everything I want at the moment.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:24:48 PM EST
It's caused to me to consider different guns.. I want an M1A, but I don't know if I could really afford to feed it.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:35:42 PM EST
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:37:56 PM EST
I want an AR10 but not right now...
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:41:24 PM EST
Bought a bunch of new bolt actions...
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:42:07 PM EST
Sort of.
I am only buying firearms that I have cases of ammo for.

The outrageous .357/.38 prices have put me off buying a Combat Magnum 19.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:42:13 PM EST
Just becuase you buy it does not mean you have to shoot it.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:42:36 PM EST
Looking for a new shotgun right now
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:48:53 PM EST
Not going to shoot anymore till prices come down.

Shooting 22 rf is for kids
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:53:39 PM EST

Ammo prices and availability have made me a better marksman.

I take my time more at the range which gives me better results accuracy wise.

I still nut up ocassionally and do mag dumps with Wolf, though.

A mans got to live a little you know.

I've got a good stash of ammo built up from years past and have bought new weapons in the last year. But not in any calibers that I don't already have.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:56:52 PM EST
No but my wife giving me shit about all the different ammo showing up every week sure has me debating on if its worth it
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:04:17 PM EST
my shooting and firearms purchases have completely stopped

Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:06:21 PM EST
I am holding off on purchases until pricing get's a little better but I have plans to purchase hopefully in the next year of a 9mm AR15 SBR, another 5.56 of some kind, and a 7.62 rifle of some kind as well as the possibility of a 12ga shotgun.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:07:58 PM EST
Still buying, but only quality firearms ,
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:10:15 PM EST
Nope. Just ammo.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:11:01 PM EST
NO! But it's making me want to buy more ammo when I see it at a decent price.
