Default i have a serious problem

yesterday I was at J&R in Livermore picking up a couple shotguns that I bought from another calgunner, and I had my new glock blue label card with me "in case of emergency." turns out J&R had exactly one blue label in stock, a G19, (which was on my list of "guns I'm buying in 2017") so I bought that. then on the way home I stopped at the GF&OS range in Dublin. there was about a 45 minute wait, so I went into the store to use the restroom. on my way back, I swung by the handgun department, and they had a springfield MC operator 1911 in stock (also on my "guns I'm buying in 2017" list). and they have a no tax promotion going on all weekend. and springfield has the gear up promotion. so I bought that one too. GF&OS was nice enough to take my money now and hold the 1911 for 30 days until I can start the DROS. lol

i'm such a sucker.

This is exactly why I have to fight the urge to stop at gun shops on my way home from work. There's some other things that I want to buy right now and I just know that those projects will get shelved real quick if I walk into a gun shop.

How many purses does she need to keep in the safe?

It's best to think of your problems as challenges.


... like how do you buy four more this month.

That's a challenge.

Congrats, and I feel your pain. HK released a grey framed USP 45 I had to have about a month before OD Gen 3 9mm's Glocks come out again.

She's more of a shoe type of gal. What about your husband? More shoes or purses?

You can't have just one

On a related topic, I dreamt about 1911 shopping last night,
Seriously, I can't choose between a Sig XO and the Springfield loaded

I once had 5 handguns I bought within a 2 days period from 2 different LGS. Reeds had their annual sale back in the day so I picked up a baby eagle and kimber 1911, at target masters they had a sale on Taurus revolvers so i picked up 2 and the roster was about to take affect and the Beretta 22 was going to be off roster. Both stores where cool with me going back and forth for 4+ months getting all of the purchases drossed and squared away.

My wife is a purse kind of gal, lol. She sees the need for a safe too, fortunately. While I have some idea what kind of purses she likes, she has no idea what guns I'd like, so she just lets me loose.

Anyone here knows of a designer purse that can CCW?

Curious about that MCO price as well. No reason to buy used if you don't have to pay tax and have the Gear Up promo as well.

She's pretty supportive of all my hobbies.

I told her I'd stop buying when the safe was full. But now I'm building a safe the size of a bedroom!

I've got both the G19 and the 1911 MCO. Excellent pistols! Enjoy!

That's not a problem your getting the guns you want it's just happening all at once. A problem is when you end up with 2 of the same gun. I put a deposit on a CZ75b SA and was told I would have to wait for if or when it came in. On a Friday a Cal gunner put one NIB up for sale at a fair price so I jumped on it and made the deal on Saturday. The following Wednesday the store called me and said my gun came in. My problem is which one or both do I keep?

Just kidding, congrats on the twin purchases! Better to buy now for a good deal, than later for a crappy deal. At least, that's how I often try to rationalize things in my head.

One handgun 9 long guns on the same DROS. Good economics.

That was my M.O. back in 2015-2016. Every time I did a DROS for something, I threw on a few stripped lowers. Would've been crazy not to.

Still not a bad idea, though at this point I'm buried in lowers and don't really want any more.

Finally did the DROS for the Springfield today. At the same time, I met a friend there and did a ppt for a beretta 92fs. I didn't want to drive all the way out to Dublin (nearly 10 miles!!!) for just one gun! Lol
