When you walk in your local gun shop just to buy a few mags or a new knife or some cleaning stuff and your saying to yourself "dont look at the guns dont look at the guns" and BAM you walk out with a new 900 dollar rifle and 500 rounds of ammo for it KNOWING you could have gone without it but you jus HAD to have it and you HAD the money for it... thats what happened when I bought my new REM700 .223

i told myself i was only going to buy some .22 mag ammo and some ammo cans but noooooooooooo i HAD to have that gun... hell im 19 not that old but i feel like im 6 or 7 buying GI Joes all over again.. anyone ever get that feeling?

(this might go in firearms discuss it might not, but it has to do with guns so here it is, plus im bored lol)

It happens all of the time. The "G.I. Joes" have just gotten more expensive. Congrats on the new purchase.

In AZ there is no waiting period. That is what I call "impulse shopping". At least when I lived in CA the idea of waiting 14 days or what ever it was, I could talk myself out of it.

That's how I got my USP. I went to a gun show to look for some mags and came home with it.

I get the same feeling, the last 2 guns I bought, I thought why do I need this?
but I still want more

Oh Good... I'm not the only independently wealthy "youngin'" that has more guns that he'll ever need but never as many as I want. Seems like I'll go out of my way to stop by the local gun shop just to "window shop" secretly hoping he'll have something new that I just can't live without. My girlfriend hates it when we stop in to "window shop" cuz it usually means dropping at least $500.00

Darkhelmet, from what I remember your girlfriend is hot, take her to Fredricks of Hwood, and leave the gun purchases to us, or give me the girlfriend and go gun shopping, you can't have both DAMMITT!!!!!
