    I did. 3rd year in a row. I bought a S&W M&P Shield 40 to go into my Summer carry rotation. I put 200 rounds through it this morning with no malfunctions. A few hundred more like that and will start carrying it.

    That is a great idea! I may have to start that next year. Perfect way to celebrate.

    Sadly, I use every holiday (even my wedding anniversary) to buy myself a gun or something gun related. At first my wife was like "***?" , but she's use to it now. :)

    Thought maybe someone would think I was a little extreme and put me in the "gun nut" category. ;)
     
  10. Pretty hard to fit in here if you're not a gun nut, eh?

    You're right, but there's Gun Nuts and there's GUN NUTS! This reminds me of the topic someone posted called "you might be a gun nut if you..." that was a funny thread. Ceck it out if you hadn't already. Funny stuff!

    I would think you were a "Gun Nut" if you had said something like 1 is enough. I'd love to know your secret. I did get a Scar 17s for our 10th anniversary but it took 10 years to accomplish that.

    On July 3rd, I started my 10-day waiting period for a Springfield Armory M1A Standard. No pics yet until I take delivery but I'm already amassing my 7.62/.308 stockpile...

    10 day waiting period? I just saw 500 rounds of Lake City 7.62x51 M80 original US Military ammo for $349.19 in the latest Cheaper than Dirt flyer.
