    I went to a gun show today and wandered around for about three hours and did not see a single thing that I wanted to buy. Not even interested in anything.

    I think it comes from having carefully chosen the guns I own.

    Everything I have I really like and everything I ever really wanted all that much, I bought.

    So, with just seven rifles (plus five stripped lower for future builds) and nine pistols, I have enough, for now at least.

    Done the same many times, walked around the shows, had cash to burn, but walked out empty handed.

    It's still fun to "people watch" at the shows though.

    I've been there for a few years. About once per year a bug crawls up my nether regions, and I get something different. I usually have to end up selling a safe queen to make room for the new addition.

    I'm in about the same boat. I've gone into half a dozen gun shops over the past week, ready to spend a grand or more. Haven't seen a thing I really had to have. I've seen some stuff I'd like, but not at the right price. Might go to a gun show tomorrow, hope to walk out with at least a new pocket knife or something.

    I've sold more guns over the last 5 years than I've bought. I've got a couple carry guns, a fighting rifle, a .30 cal. bolt action rifle, a couple fighting shotguns, a few .22's, a couple hunting shotguns, and a muzzleloader. I've got all my needs covered. My remaining wants are pretty particular.

    I have everything I need, they still have several things I want. I just haven't found a gun I have to have lately. It has been a slow year, I have only picked up two 22 rifles this year.

    I have approached my gun collection in the same way. I have no doubles, and each gun plays a specific roll.

    With that being said I can not see myself having the same feeling any time soon. My "short" list is not short.:dunno:

    I only go to Cabelas and Bass Pro anymore to see the big fancy stores. I have never bought anything there.

    I only buy frivolous, fun, unnecessary guns now.

    And, that little cannon that shoots BB's with black powder and firecrackers.

    Ummmm... You are right. Ten pistols, not nine.

    I forgot to count a S&W 9mm with cocobolo grips. :tongueout:

    My gun collection is limited by self-imposed restrictions on caliber proliferation. However, there's a list of fewer than 5 additional guns that would leave me wanting nothing else. I'm a fan of duplication too. Even with a list of guns that I want, I still don't feel that most of mine are over-utilized with a pace of 3-4 range trips per month.

    What is this "enough" of which you speak?

    I have never heard of that brand.

    How many models do they make and where can I order one?

    A muzzle loading what?

    A muzzle loading musket? A muzzle loading pistol? Perhaps a muzzle loading shotgun?

    Or do you mean a muzzle loading rifle?

    Everytime I feel this way I buy more magazines, clips and ammo.
    It makes the world a better place.

    As my knowledge of guns grows, so does my desire to have more. My LGS just got a CA legal AK in, while it was cool, just not my cup of tea....yet!

    Agreed. Nothing's grabbed me since the Saiga 12, and that was almost ten years ago. HH
