I have bought 6 guns and a lower in the last five months. I have bought more in five months than I have in the last five years. It might have to do with a new job and decent pay. But through in the guns, parts, ammo, and accessories, I have been out of control. Working on reining it in, but wow. Now the latest one, I need to get a quality scope. Sheesh!

Anyone else ever get like this?

I can understand that, but being married, that would go over far less well than guns.

I am the same way this year. It was because I got a fat raise and I bought my wife a house. So she told me to buy all the toys I want.

Yea

So far this year I have bought a FiveSeven, PS90, M&P VTAC, M&P22, Taurus 9mm 1911, Savage Model 11, and finished building another AR this year... plus I just bought a SCAR 17 but I can't have it until Christmas says the wife

I think I'm done buying guns for a long while. Now I have to start working on accessorizing the SCAR. I'll need mags, optics, trigger, sling....

Ronnoc, I understand what you are going through. Two weeks ago I placed an order for another M-1 Garand and 600 rounds of ammunition for it. Today I bought a 1911, I think in the last month I between everything else shooting related (a scope, club dues, targets, etc) I have spent my entire budget for shooting for a year (maybe 18 months).

So far in the last five months I have bought:

Colt 6940 w/ Eotech 517
Colt 6920
Sig P220
Ruger Mk III
Ruger LCP
Remington 700 AAC-SD and need a quality scope and bipod now, plus .308 ammo now
CMMG lower

Plus 3k 5.56, 500 .45, 500 9mm, bolts, BCGs, slings, magpul gear, back packs, mags, etc, etc, etc.

I have to admit, though, I have thoroughly enjoyed it

Didn't they pass that one gun per month law? I'm no legal beagle, but I'd not advertise you are not keeping up with the law's requirements. Better step it up.

Quality > Quantity

It looks like you are buying nice stuff, but I would concentrate on outfitting what you have with quality optics, accesories, gear, and ammo, maybe some training rather than buying another AR to dress up a different way.

Yep, been looking at scopes and at new stocks for the Rem 700. I had no idea how much the HS stocks, let alone AICS stocks go for.

Next up is a safe. Then another G19.

I want a Marlin 1895, bad, but have kept that under control.

Yeah, those stocks cost a bundle.

Congrats in advance on the new Glock 19

It makes you think you're throwing money away, until you realize that with guns and ammo, and with the internet giving you a different selling ability than decades past, you can almost always get most, if not all, of your money back, if you ever need to. Most everything else you buy in a store, you're going to end up selling it for a 90% loss at your garage sale ten years from now.

Besides the .300blk. Ps90, and a 870 shotgun I can't decide what else to get really... And the 870
Is low of the list because I have a kinda free siaga 12. I also got a big safe this year and my buddy got the 12g then moved to Cali a few months later and left it with me.
