    I’m not sure about anyone else but have to admit this site consumes alota my time. I check this at least 15 times a day. Not only that no matter what gun I own it’s never enough. I see one an think yea I need that for carry or for the range or next to my bed. get that an you see or hear about something else an start thinking maybe I need that instead. No I will just mod this one to the way I like. Start modding then decide you shoulda bought the other. Then something else comes along that would make a great range gun or a different caliber. Buy that.. 3 months later new model comes out wow! I gotta have that. Oh damn that’s a deal that would make a great base gun for a build. I’ll sell this to get that.. It’s seriously an addiction always chasing that first high it never ends. Then you have this damn site. I’m never satisfied. I just wish one of the big smiths or all would just have cameras running in the shop so I can watch them work on guns too.

    Do you reload? That would consume more of your time and money and prove to be a modest respite from this forum.

    Well that is step 1 of the 12 step program.

    There are far more expensive hobbies out there.. As long as your taking care of the household and the family. Its good.

    Yes I have considered the reloading. I think I’d loose the wife with another. I stocked up on bullets a year or so ago and started looking into reloading but talked my self out of it as I know I would turn into a mad scientist trying to perfect the perfect bullet which would just bring me back to having a perfect gun to shoot them. And could cause even more problems. I truly love 1911s and wish I could just be a real gunsmith lol

    If you are only checking this site 15 times a day then you are missing a lot. 30 checks a day minimum is required.

    Yesterday I missed a deal by one minute on a holster I don’t really need because I made the mistake of trying to work instead of staying vigilant on the classifieds.

    Just here to help.

    So you are equating this site as the MySpace for guns?

    Sometime this year I'll reach that point where if I don't have the purrrfect 1911 for whatever mood I'm in, it's not for lack of trying. Well, maybe sometime next year.
