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.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:29:05 PM EDT
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 12:30:21 PM EDT
yep, won't be buying anything for at least another year, maybe even two.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:30:33 PM EDT
I bought a spike's kit for my AR and have been having fun with that.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:30:43 PM EDT
I dont have the money to buy new firearms..... :(
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:32:00 PM EDT
I just bought my first 1911.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:32:25 PM EDT
Definitely no need to buy new guns right now with ammo availability the way it is.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:32:37 PM EDT
Nope. Not at all.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:32:37 PM EDT
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 12:33:24 PM EDT
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 12:34:09 PM EDT
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 12:34:33 PM EDT
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 12:35:44 PM EDT
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.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:47:21 PM EDT
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 12:48:04 PM EDT
No, the amount of my paycheck did it.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:50:10 PM EDT
No, I bought my son a Marlin 336 and am about to get myself one next week.

Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:50:51 PM EDT
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 12:53:46 PM EDT
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 12:54:12 PM EDT
No, it made me buy a dedicated .22LR upper.  
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:56:54 PM EDT
Not at all.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 12:57:00 PM EDT
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 1:02:30 PM EDT
No. I have a nice stash of ammo. Been stocking up since 01.

Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:07:06 PM EDT
I don't buy guns because they are really icky.  
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:12:41 PM EDT
I should have lost interest, but I can't stop.

Eyeballing a new g-26.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:14:01 PM EDT
Just bought a Garand :D
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:20:57 PM EDT
No.  I reload.  Ammo flows from my presses like cheap beer from a frat party keg
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:23:22 PM EDT
No.  But, I already had quite a bit of ammo saved up and I reload.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:24:01 PM EDT
A little. I don't want to buy a gun and not be able to shoot it.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:24:14 PM EDT
No I have everything I want at the moment.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:24:48 PM EDT
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 1:35:42 PM EDT
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:37:56 PM EDT
I want an AR10 but not right now...
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:41:24 PM EDT
Bought a bunch of new bolt actions...
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:42:07 PM EDT
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 1:42:13 PM EDT
Just becuase you buy it does not mean you have to shoot it.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:42:36 PM EDT
Looking for a new shotgun right now
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:48:53 PM EDT
Not going to shoot anymore till prices come down.

Shooting 22 rf is for kids
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 1:53:39 PM EDT

      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 1:56:52 PM EDT
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 2:04:17 PM EDT
my shooting and firearms purchases have completely stopped

Link Posted: 6/15/2009 2:06:21 PM EDT
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 2:07:58 PM EDT
Still buying, but only quality firearms ,
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 2:10:15 PM EDT
Nope.  Just ammo.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 2:11:01 PM EDT
NO! But it's making me want to buy more ammo when I see it at a decent price.
Link Posted: 6/15/2009 2:11:52 PM EDT
