We all have different guns for different reasons, and all of the reasons are legitimate for those who own them. For those looking for another gun, but need a reason to buy it, I wanted to put a list of purposes for having it. You know, to help you justify the purpose if needed (especially if you ever have some explaining to do). You may say this is enabling, and I say, if the shoe fits, put the mofo on.

Truck gun
Woods gun
Carry gun
Lightweight carry gun
Deep concealment carry gun
Backup gun
Backup to backup carry gun
Range gun
Home defense gun
First gun
First (insert platform here) gun
Gun to hand down to kid(s)
First custom
"I bought it for you, dear."
First revolver
Needed a gun in X caliber
Needed a compact version
Needed a subcompact version
Just because
Because I can

Y'alls turn. I left out many other reasons or purposes, so please add on to help those in need.

I need more "Grips Guns" cuz I got all these nice grips that need a home.

You can almost hear the little orphans crying in the ammo can when you walk by. What kind of a heartless ******* doesn't want to give them a good home?

You're right, I forgot the "yeah, I know it's it was expensive honey but those are real ivory grips and you don't put ivory on a piece of sh!t. oh, the ivory grips? don't worry, I got a deal on those:rolleyes:" guns.

I like things that stimulate the senses and make life worth living: pretty young women, horses, airplanes, motorcycles, cars and guns. Things that you don’t necessarily need but want. Things that are desired.

All can be quite dangerous if you don’t understand the science of what you are playing with. However, all are very rewarding when handled properly.

Live a little. Live a lot!

Oh, everything was a deal, or a steal, or an unbelievably good trade I couldn't pass up for a really really cheap beater gun I had.

"Because they are going to ban these soon and I had to get one. That also means it will be worth a million dollars when the ban is lifted...."
I'll use that one if she ever finds the case of bump stocks in the garage….:jawdrop:
