I got my first gun last weekend. I've shot a bit before, just never owned one. And now, after 5 days of ownership and maybe a hundred rounds through it, I'm already thinking about getting another one.

Oh my, this is going to be trouble.

Also, my girlfriend probably won't be a big fan of the S&W 29, so I'll have to get something for her too.

:cool:

Same thing happened here. Bought my first gun at the end of Dec, then the SR22 came out and I got that at the end of Feb. Now I'm talking my bf into building an AR for me and trying to decide which polymer HD weapon and possible CC gun to get (which likely won't even happen for another year). :innocent: Welcome to the machine!

Make sure you have a tight grip on your finances. It does get addictive, especially given that your choice of ammo is rather expensive.

I know what you mean, as my lady and I WERE against having a gun in the house, but I convinced her that we would be safer.

Long story short, she has one (soon to have an AR too), and I have 4 officially now. I am purchasing my 1st handgun on the 30th.

This is all in the last 7 months, so I feel your pain!

Welcome aboard! Yes, the addiction can spread outwards too. Just finished upgrades on my wife's new Mossberg 20Ga Mini. At least that means the next toy is mine, lol.
