Why do you need two of some of these handguns?
I do ok but I’m not wealthy, just everything I had was paid for before I bought this ranch last month.At least someone on this forum is wealthy.
My wife would KILL me.
Jealousy rears it's ugly head again.
I got 2 boys so 2x 15-22’s and 2x Single action.22’s. The .45’s are for 2 handed cowboy shooting and the 2x 40’s are just because I wanted a matching set. Eventually my boys will be using them. I have a .45 just like them.Why do you need two of some of these handguns?
I got a .338 Lapua precision on my list. Thought about a creedmoor but with a .308 and a Lapua, don’t really need one. Almost bought a .22 magnum precision (really good deal new) but my brother really wanted it so I backed off.Why not duplicates? It makes sense to me.
You need a bolt action rifle, or two.
I was hoping I’d be car debt free for a while but a couple weeks ago, the seal in one of my turbos went bad and sucked the oil out of the engine. You can imagine the damage that caused. New motor and turbos just set me back $9k so I’m back to a car payment already.Phil i been on a buying spree myself the last 2 years. One more this week then im done. I really need to start saving for a newer vehicle.
Sounds like you lived a very smart life. I commend you on your priorities.I do ok but I’m not wealthy, just everything I had was paid for before I bought this ranch last month.
I just spoke with the mechanic 5 min ago. His first diagnosis by what I told him was that the turbos were likely the cause. He just confirmed that one of the turbos is full of oil.It would be cool if they would design the turbos to have the cooler use a seperate oil cooler from the engine oil.
Semi autos probably, doubt I’d do anything to the Henrys or revolvers. And yes, I have a tendency to favor certain brand/models. Springfield XDM’s, Ruger Blackhawks, Henry’s 20” brass line. It’s pretty obvious when I have 3 or 4 of the same line. Varying calibers of the same model seems redundant and unnecessary but it allows me to buy what’s on sale, knowing I have something to shoot it when I get home and gives me the option to shoot what I feel like with a gun I enjoy. Not that long ago I bought 1,700 rds of .38 special and had nothing to shoot it. Decided to buy a Henry .357 to fill the void. Eventually I’ll have some .357 Bisley’s for the same reason.At some point, or other, you'll stop buying, and start Armoring. Replacing mag releases that jut out half an inch with ones which are flush, so your holster doesn't keep ejecting your mags.
Replacing holster-snagger F/O sights with low-profile Iridium night sights, etc. Basically, one day you'll decide to start modding them to just the way you like them. Finding the "right" holster for each gun. (DiSantis makes good stuff.)
It's weird, when I really like a gun, another one very similar also finds it's way home...
