    And you call yourself a gunowner...

    Only kidding! I figure when I retire and the kids move out, I'll cull the herd.

    Shooter;
    I can relate. I know the guys are just poking fun - but - I've been thinning the herd myself over the past few years. I have reinvested some of the cash into ammo.
    Although, not as thin as yours. There are items on my want list but the desire isn't strong enough to pay full price.
    I have given or traded many in my inventory to my son, gave 2 to my daughter, 3 to my son-in-law and 1 to my granddaughter. Now I can enjoy helping them use them at the range while I'm still here.
    I'm at the age that simple is better. Besides, someone once told me to beware of a man with only one gun. It indicates that he knows how to use it, and use it well.

    That's the best part. Always wanted one...talked about it from time to time, and if I had a friend with me and seen one at a shop or gun show, I would also extol it's virtues. Then, it comes to past that a mutual friend has a friend who has $$ down on one, but has since come on hard times and needs the money back. The gun shop says no refunds...pick it up or default and lose your deposit. I step in with cold hard cash...$200...to complete the deal on a lay-away that already has $350 down on it. I give the guy who needs the money $200. I get the gun for $400. ( The shop gets $200...the original guy gets $200...and loses only $150...which is what I save by helping him recoup some of the money he had down ). WIN WIN

    Knocked one off my list - not a 2" Model 10 but it's more flashy brother, a 2" Model 64 (same gun in stainless, not my first choice but she'll due). Dealer will be processing paperwork on Monday/Tuesday and we have a waiting period in Maryland.

    Round butt factory wood. I'll probably fit it with a Hogue Monogrip in Pau Ferro or maybe see if I don't have an extra set of Herretts down in the shop.

    i have decided to trade my 1911 American Classic II to one of my closest friends for his Springfield Armory XD Compact 45acp. now i need to buy another 1911 full size! but the kicker is, with the trade and $500, i also acquire a Weatherby rifle in 270 Win. too. i have had my eye on his rifle for many years now and couldn't believe he wanted to trade it. i was in shock at first, now i'm just tickled to death!
