LOL, I think "trade" would be a better way to put it. I'm not rich enough to "buy" guns. If I want a new one I've got to give up one that I have to get the money for the new one. Sucks, doesn't it.

I used to buy 2 or 3 a week. Now It's only a few a year. Collection got unmanagable. I sold off a small part of the collection when my son was born. Enought to clean out one safe and put $16,000.00 in my pocket. I still have more guns than I have time to shoot.

My budget says I have spent just over $11,000 on Guns, ammo, and accesories so far this year. That's way down from the late 90's

Well, my GF and I started in August 2002 (almost 16 months ago).

To date I’ve got 13 (1 shotgun, 6 handguns and 6 rifles).

She has 9 (1 shotgun , 6 handguns and 2 rifles).

Purchases haven’t been “even” across that time. We binged out pretty good at the beginning. Her shotgun (picks it up on the 27th), is the first new one either of us gotten in a few months.

Buy maybe 1, build 1 or 2.

It varies from year to year, based on available disposable income.

Some years it's tough to maintain the HCI recommended 1 handgun per month minimum.

I havent purchased a firearm in over 3 years and dont plan on buying anymore guns.

One reason is because it's not easy re-selling
your guns in Ca. no more private party sales without going through FFL dealer and the gun laws keep getting more restrictive each year.

The restrictive firearms laws have caused me to
not buy more guns, because I know everything will be banned in Ca. eventually. I consider it
a waste of money to invest in more guns these
days.

Thunderbolt, you could always move one state to the east of Calif. and own all the guns you wanted. AZ. is a fairly gun friendly state to live in and I'm sure you could get a good job in Phoenix or Tuscon. Just an idea.

about 1 or 2.

And the bastards in Sacramento/HCI/Million Morons/etc… are worried that their campaign to discourage law-abiding Citizens from exercising their Constitutional rights isn’t working.

I don’t mean to flame you Thunderbolt as I know you aren’t the only one that feels that way but if enough of us fall into that trap, the fuckers have won and we all might as well march down to the police station and turn them in voluntarily.

As for myself, every time they talk about another restriction I start making plans to buy more. They add more laws, sales go up. They restrict, sales go up. They ban, sales go up. It’s the ONLY way, short of taking that final step that nobody wants to happen, of letting the rat-bastards know that they aren’t going to win.

Buy until it hurts. If we stop they win, we lose.

I'm averaging 3 per year for the last 3 years. I hope my wife doesn't read this!
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 2:44:23 PM EDT
So far, I've been getting one every six months (for almost two years). I'm a senior in college so money has been tight, and it's not going to get any better in grad school. I manage to eat enough ramen to keep my collection growing I'd like to find some part-time work when I can to bump it up to one every four months.

Thanks but I could never leave California, it is my home, Im happy with the few guns that I can still own. No gun laws would make me leave.

I've been trying to average 1 per month. This year I'm just a little below that.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 2:55:22 PM EDT
Airwolf,

the reason I wont buy anymore guns is because
eventually guns will require license & registration that leads to confiscation and I
dont believe in registration or licensing.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 2:58:45 PM EDT
I have been a gun whore lately, buying one about every 2-3 months for the last year. The real problem is I then have that many guns to buy shit for! And t hey all seem to be different calibers! More ammo! More guns! More accessories! More range time! Etc. etc. etc.

Me: "Hi, my name is Juice and I am a gunaholic."

GA attendees: "Hi Juice."

this year; 6,,,,, 8 if you include the tanneryshop recivers i just finished off..

in the 8 or 9 years prior...... not a damn thing.. on paper

i budget 200 dollars a month for ammo, reloading supplies, and guns and accs... it is the largest catagory in my budget.


i need to up the budget a little...
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:27:01 PM EDT
Too many. I have somewhat successfully limited myself to one a month this year but I totally blew it in October, I bought four then.
I really have to cut down. Hopefully next year instead of guns I will be buying some land. Yes, so I can have my own private range..
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:43:57 PM EDT
I've been lucky enough to buy 8 this year...this id not the norm...but what has happened is as soon as I get one I start planning on the next...
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:44:02 PM EDT
I was buying 15 or 20 but I ran out of room.
I have bought I think 2 or 3 this year. That's it.

The joys of a C&R.

Now if there isn't a good reason to move out of PRK,where is one?
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:55:20 PM EDT
I've only bought 1 gun since I gave up my FFL. That was 13 years ago. I bought several while I had my FFL. My C&R is on the way so I'm sure the pace is gonna pick up.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:55:40 PM EDT
Can only afford to by 1 or 2 guns (in the $1000 range) for me.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 3:56:19 PM EDT
Last year I think I bought 10. This year I'm down to 5, our first child is on the way and getting ready for that is expensive. But my wife is expecting a $30K raise in 3 months, so I plan to make up for lost time.
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 4:02:35 PM EDT
4 this year and working on 3 more.
