Default Bought too many guns this year already!

I suppose it was from selling most of what I had last year to pay for tuition that I wasn't prepared for. To make up for it I bought some this year, however, now I'm feeling the tuition pinch again!

I bought a G19 gen 3, and didn't really enjoy shooting it like I remember I used to. I'll keep it just because it's the boring reliable glock but I don't love it. I miss my gen 4!

I have one too many shotguns, but I don't own a hunting rifle that has a scope which I'm now feeling like I would have been wise to buy instead of the glock.

ARRG, why do I like this hobby if it's so darn expensive! And I'm looking forward to when my kids finish school!

I've bought 3 since October, which is three more than I'd bought since 2011!

I didn’t think it was possible to buy too many...To each their own haha. How many is too many? When you can’t afford them I suppose or when guns become the priority over your actual responsibilities like house payment, family, bills, etc..guess I answered my own question go figure

That is why I started building my own (or modifying). It generally costs more but it slows down the buying process. Otherwise you just buy too many too quickly.

As soon as I made the decision to move to Texas, I stopped buying guns here.
I can’t wait to de-neuter my ARs.

I've bought more guns already this year then I bought all of last year. But like mentioned above, last year was for buying ammo.

The words you have chosen for the title of your post do not make any sense.

You can buy too many guns even when you can afford them when their upkeep and storage and security become overwhelming. I was/am at that point. I dumped a lot but still am acquiring them. Having to move hundreds of guns is also a logistical and security nightmare.

I thought one safe was enough.

Too bad the Mrs found the second safe.

I'm waiting for them to finish too! But it's because I want to scale back and they want them, but they need to get places where they can get a safe.

My move out of state was interesting for that reason. I had them ALL in my vehicle. Drove 66 mph in the slow lane until I crossed the commie line. If Id of been pulled over, for sure woulda been on the news.
