Last year I went nuts buying up guns and related items. My wife was a willing accomplice. I ran across deal after deal and bought most of them. I stocked up on ammo every time it went on sale and bought mags up the ying yang. I have one more gun coming and the fun stops. The new year will be back to the same old boring life I usually live, with one or two gun purchases for the year. Probably just the USGI 1911 or A1 if I find a good example. It will SUCK but I know that I can't continue on at the pace I did last year. No, I did not go into debt, but I did work my ass off the first 6 months building up my fund. My last purchase [already done but waiting on the gun] pretty much dried up the fund and I don't want to work like a dog again to build it back up.

I blame a lot of my addiction on all you addicts here. FALs, M1As, AKs, M1s, carbines, and I had to try them all out before I got to old to see well enough to use open sights. Problem was, once I got started, it was hard to stop, because so many guns came out of the closet in the past year, and at such decent prices, that I had to buy them.

Anyways, this new year I will have a larger bank account but nowhere as much fun finding deals.

That's what I did.... but no my wife wasn't a willing participant. She still doesnt know exactly how much I have. Seeing all the Gun porn here doesnt help

I spent close to $20K the past 12 months on firearms and gun related items.

I'm around that ballpark figure myself, the NIB SA NM M1A pushed me well over it. [4 digit]

I only spent a measly $5K or so in the last year, post AWB expiration pent up demand. Plan to take it easy this year, if I can resist. I do plan to buy a lot more mags for the AR's and hi cap handguns

Its an addiction, but, its a good addiction.
The thing is too have fun at it. If you get too serious, you will burn out.

If you burn out, dont sell those arms, you WILL regreat it!

I HAVE FUN with it, ive MADE 10's of thousands of $$$
and i have personal firearms, that, i never would have owned, if it wasent for my addiction.
(Never seemed too have the money, but, once i was addicted, the money came, some how. Money that would have been spent, instead of MAKING me money)

I love it and probably always will.

My problem is I don't sell much and don't plan on starting to anytime soon. And I DID have fun, a lot of it actually. I sold some stuff I did not like at decent prices but added a lot more. Sorting and such tho has become a chore in the ammo dept, and it took the better part of a day to log, sort, "ammo can" it, stack it, and mark it. I did not enjoy that except that I found stuff I did not know I had and I can now find the shooter stuff without opening up half the cans. [nothing like finding 4K of 193 ammo from pre Klinton plus a bunch of SA.

That total would be $10-$20K higher if WA was a Class III state.
