    I feel this adrenaline feeling when fondling a new gun for purchase.... It even has made me mess up while filling out a 4473 form! :supergrin:

    It's just something exciting about taking a new firearm home!:tongueout:

    Great. Now they'll add that question to the 4473. "Are you the actual buyer of this firearm?" Check. "Are you aroused?" Uh, Oh.

    Personally? I like the research leading UP to the purchase... It makes the final purchase so much more satisfying when you've done your homework and KNOW your gonna love it. I bought my G23 with a GIANT grin on my face... *checks mirror* Yup, still there. =)

    Short Answer: Yes!

    I tend to like the shooting more than the buying...

    If I hadn't sold a bunch to buy a house I would be well over 80!:wow:


    It's a great feeling.

    I think as a species we have evolved to get a rush when buying just about anything. Whether it's new tools, guns, vehicles, electronics, etc we get an endorphine rush. It's even better when it's something we truly love, like guns.

    People get excited just like buying a car, closing a deal, etc. That rush happens to all of us in one way or another. the mrs gets it from her shoes. I go to a gun store/range and want to fondle/have fun with all the goodies, just like when I go to Hooters or the Nudey Bar :whistling:

    Ditto, it's fun to research and learn about a new gun.
