    I don't consider it an addiction. A lifestyle, a passion, life's work, but not an addiction. The only difference between being into guns and technology is that guns no longer are a driving force in our economy, like they were for the 3 centuries prior.

    From what I can tell, 12-16 million firearms are sold in this country every year currently. That seems like a rather important sector of an economy to me.

    I buy all kinds of stuff, just because. For guns, one of my most recent was a Contender in 309jdj. I don't like Contenders, and I don't like deer hunting with rifles. Yet, I felt it would be cool to have one. And it was cool, until I realized it would likely just sit forever, never used.

    Some have been great. I've got a Henry rifle in 327 federal, just because I wanted a rifle in that caliber. I love it. I've got a Springfield M1A that I bought for no reason other than I always thought the M14 was the finest semi automatic rifle ever produced.

    If need had any part in this, I should have stopped at a Mossberg 500 and a Ruger GP100.

    You want it because it's sexy, it's a straight wall, it's legal to hunt deer with in.... gosh dern near every state now? Because You can size just about any .38 or .357 round and if it has an ogive or a TC, it will feed! 90gr .380 PC boolits to 200gr +, you pick your poison!

    Also... black powder. Yupper, kicked with a few grains of 4198. Messy? Yes but fun to try!

    I love mine, cant you tell?

    You're not alone. Mine arrived two weeks ago. You will not be disappointed. Give the barrel a good scrubbing when you get it. Mine took a lot of cleaning to get a clean patch out of it. I got a mil-spec, Aero Precision lower on sale from my local dealer for $200.00 bux, and a brass catcher that clips on to the pic rail.
    I live and hunt in a no rifle zone, so this little carbine is going to be a nice addition.

    My girlfriend and I were just talking about my "hobby" last night. Told her could be worse. I could be smoking, drinking, and womanizing. I like my guns. Unlike the Left's, mine dont go running around shooting people when I am not looking. They are a bit promiscuous though as I swear they breed. Cleaned out my walk in closet for her to use and found two ar15 lowers. Did I mention I love my hobby and have not nor will I ever sell or trade one? Let the kids worry about it when I am gone. Hoping son keeps them but who knows.

    I have a core group of "needed" guns. The others come and go as I get something I want, play with it a while then let it go to someone else. But the core group grows for some reason.....

    New toys are fun to play with. Have one i have been wanting showed up recently and keep telling myself dont need it. Have about 10 contender barrel sets i have not even shot yet. But they are nice to have and looking forward to them when i get time.

    Hmmm. I may have one or two of those promiscuous guns as they seem to multiply when I ain't looking. That or my gun safe is shrinking...
