    I was telling a friend I'm done buying cause I don't need anything but then remembered the revolvers I dont yet have, or 10mm's, or the Lever gun I need.

    So, like, I was "done" for about 20 seconds.

    I say, "I'm done", every time I buy another firearm.

    I just took possession of a S&W 625JM and a Colt Commander.
    Then, a 2001 JM Proofed Marlin 1895CB became available.

    Bought that.

    Today, my LGS called and said they have a S&W Mdl 27-2 w/ 3-1/2" barrel that just came in.

    I'm no longer gonna say, "I'm done", because apparently....... I'm not. :)

    Yea I was done too. And then I got bored shooting guns recently, and decided to get back into archery.

    That’s an expensive hobby rivaling firearms.

    And I am crazy enough to want to take a deer with a longbow this season. Highly ambitious of me.

    I know, Kidding Ourselves can be a fun game to play. Usually it lasts a little bit longer than 20 seconds.

    Yeah, I've learned not to even try to lie to myself any more. My wife once asked me, don't you have enough guns? I just chuckled and said, nope not yet. That was OK with her.

    My biggest challenge right now is where to put 'em all. I may have to get a bigger house soon.

    That was 5 guns ago.

    I actually think when I get all of my project guns back from their various smiths I might really be done.

    Got an 8 bore double rifle, and single shot on the way, new steel barrels for my 8 gauge shotgun. 577 BPE double rifle, 475 Linebaugh redhawk conversion, 458 Lott, and a 1903 custom being built. After that I can’t really think of anything more I’ll need.


    After that it’s time to up my night vision,thermal, and high end optics game.

    I’m typically done for about 6 months.

    I have everything I need, and maybe a third of what I (reasonably) want.

    I'll be "done" for 6-12 months, then go out and buy three more. I honestly thought I was done once, then I played tetris with my safes and found three more spots. Well, those spots obviously had to be filled. I played again and, guess what, I have space for fie more so I guess I'm not done yet :)

    I also quit buying guns....about 7 or 8 times now. Just bought a 41 magnum single action revolver a couple weeks ago, and then picked up a couple hundred rounds of ammo. Kinda asking myself why I bought it, but my wife doesn't seem to have a good reason why she has 20 sets of shoes in the closet either. So there is that.
