    I'm a few months away from my birthday and I think I should do a spending freeze until then. I've been on a tear lately....:o.o: No more guns, ammo, reloading stuff, holsters, grips... Nothing!

    So - anybody else feel like exercising some fiscal discipline until mid October? If you want to join but you have a planned purchase before October 15 you can declare it to be an exception.

    Exception > I may purchase some Parkerizing supplies (under 100 bucks) before October 15 but that is it.

    If you fail, may it be in spectacular fashion - but you have to declare it here. Anybody else joining this Order?

    Your wallet will thank you!
    Greg

    I think I'd have a better chance of holding back the tides. Because I know as soon as I made this pledge...I'd see my dream gun in the classified for a song.

    like the government says" You are on your own"
    my addiction is too strong to try this

    If I see something I want-- life is too short to "wait for October"

    so I would declare myself a spectacular fail now--much easier this way ;)

    good luck with that

    Only after Rock Island's online auction in Aug, and oh yeah, their Premier Auction in Sep.

    Yep, that is always the risk. If I stumble across something I'd be stooopid to ignore I'll buy it and post pictures of my epic failure.

    Only thing I plan on buying before then is some bullets for reloading.

    I need to take a break for a while. Between recent purchases/builds and travelling, I'm running closer to broke than I like. Time to rebuild the coffers for a while. This is by no means a promise!

    I have two gun purchases outstanding.
    I have a gun I'm drooling over in the classifieds
    I'm hemorrhaging $$$ on a car restoration.
    The addiction continues
