i was just wondering how many people out there actually purchased accessories for things you didn't own yet. for example, before i bought my first AR, i bought several thermold and USGI magazines. just to play with, and for "motivation"

Me Too Started picking up mags a year before I got my AR

I've done that so much that I have an entire moving box full of accessories for firearms I don't own!

I bought 2 boxes of .30-40 ammo before I bought my Krag rifle.

Well how about a box of 22WMR I've had for 10 years with no intent of purchasing a 22WMR chambered weapon .
Link Posted: 3/3/2002 9:33:11 PM EDT
Yep

How about a box of .348 win.. does that count?
Link Posted: 3/3/2002 10:04:07 PM EDT
I have mags for a Browning Hi-Power, but no gun. They are next to impossible to get in the PRK. I also have holsters for CCW, but once agian the PRK makes them go unused. I have several boxes of .40, but no Glock to put them in.

Okay...Okay...you got me on this one! I have ammo, barrels, and holsters for firearms I don't even have...well, at least not yet..hehehe medcop

Almost, but not yet. I was almost going to buy some Glock 26 mags for a gun I don't own on a Permit I don't have yet, but something more important came along that's making me save my money.

I bought everything that I wanted to put on my Remington 870 before I had it.

Bought a bunch (magaholic quantities) of AK74 magazines and a stock set for aan SAR-2 a few months back. Problem was, it took me a couple of months to find the SAR-2.
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 4:39:35 AM EDT
Done it all the time.
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 4:50:53 AM EDT
All the time! Lately it's been M1-A mags for conversion someday for the AR-10 in .260 I hope to build. Lot's of pieces, parts, accessories, and assorted cool but idle stuff sitting in the safe or closets.

Guilty as sin! But wait, this can't be sin, it is too blissful! Am I on the right thread?
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 5:08:02 AM EDT
I've been buying .50BMG recently. I believe I can see an AR-50 just poking over the horizon.
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 5:19:09 AM EDT
Guilty, I bought ammo and started reloading ammo for a gun I wanted REAL BAD! Ended up getting the gun shortly after...so my theory is one causes the other and it's a vicious cycle. Damn, it's a beautiful world we live in:)

Guilty on another spectum -- I was in the market for a motorcycle and got a few accessories before I got the bike. A few weeks passed and I ended up with a center console boat. Oh well.
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 6:10:04 AM EDT
Not only do I frequently buy accessories for things I don't have, I even buy guns just because I got some free ammo for them.

In a way that makes since, I want to buy accessories before I buy the gun. Because if you do it the other way around it just doesn't feel good to get home with a gun you still have to accessorize.

I have done this also. Bought a twist throttle for an '86 honda atc 250r before I even got the bike!! Thumb throttles suck!!
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 9:26:32 AM EDT
Guilty. I always buy a few boxes of ammo in a caliber that I have no firearm for so that I need to buy the firearm. Otherwise I would have to waste $40 of perfectly good ammo. [:)] Definitely glad to see that I am not the only one.
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 9:49:49 AM EDT
Guilty as charged. Alot of times it happens because I can't pass up on a good deal, regardless of what's it for. I've got hi-caps for pistols I don't own just because of the then pending Caliban ban on hi-cap mags.
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 10:46:05 AM EDT
GUILTY! 1000 rounds of .380 for a gun I haven't gotten yet. Full motocross gear, helmet, boots, gearbag, pads, chest protector, gas can, ramp for loading bike into truck, 2 stroke mix oil.... no dirt bike, not planning on buying till next winter.

I have 2000rds of 308, 10-FAL mags, Scope mount for a FAL, About 900 rds of 223 and 5-ar mags (That I'm trying to sell.) And I Don't even own a FAL or AR-15

I have 4 rounds of 50 cal BMG. 1 Ball, 1 Tracer, 1 Armor Piercing, and 1 Armor Piercing Incendiary. Maybe this year...
Link Posted: 3/4/2002 1:25:23 PM EDT
Yep! One can of .30 carbine in clips in bandoliers from the CMP. I don't own a carbine. Then there is that set of Redding .243 dies... At the opposite end of the spectrum is NOT haveing whatever for the guns you do have. At one time I had 3 Garands, one '03 and an M-1917 and the only .30-06 I had was my target loads, about 100 rounds. [:O]
