Dont let these others shinanigans fool you. You do have a serious condition here that if left untreated can lead to all kind of other proublems mentaly and physically. A horrible death is the ultimate outcome from this terrible disorder.
Again I stress this is serious.
Now I do have a little expertise in this matter and have a cure. Now it sounds hard and it is but the only way out to a normal life again with your family is to go "cold turkey".
Step one- I will send you my address any you send all the guns you have right now to me.
Step two- For the period of one year every time you get the urge to buy a new gun, buy it then send it to me within two days of purchase.
Step three- After the first year your wife will take over and wonder why you keep buying guns and giving them away and you will never buy another gun again.

Proublem solved Thumbs up

Oh CVC by the way. I have heard great things about the 338 Fed cartridge that is now out! I see that Ruger has brought it out in their "Hawkeye" modle rifle. It is a M 98 actioned rifle built kind of like a Mtn rifle. Very nice lol lol
Just planting a seed Laugh

CVC,
There's a virus we all caught long ago. Seems to be very contagious. I'm sorry but it look as though you've caught it. Don't worry, while there is no known cure for this dreadfull disease, the symptoms become less and less over time as you age. Laugh

Next is the reloading bug then the wildcat bug. But reloading does save you money. prior to reloading I was spending $150 a year on ammunition. Now I only spend $130 a month! Laugh

Well Don, as you know from all my questions, I am now reloading. And my condition has worsened. Now I am thinking about rifles that I don't really havea need for, but just would like to have.

Learning first hand is always the best way to go.
When you get an interest in a round. It's critical that you purchase a firearm that fires that round and the dies and powder that will be needed to load for that round.
Once you have found the load that is desirable. Then it is necessary to move on to the next round of interest.
This is the only way to refine your reloading abilities.

Once you have refined your abilities in several rounds. It will be necessary to purchase a good quality safe to keep your hard work secure and a nice display case for the few special projects.
Always keep in mind that all the hard work and sweat you put into these projects. Will be gaining you some fine trophies and there will be a need for a fine trophy room.

Good times. On your endeavors.

Don't ever say that again!!! sad It's not manly! Mr. Cool! In some places even thinking things like that can get you into an extended list of honey-do's. They seem to sense it and take advantage of your weak moment. If you like I could send you to the honey-do councilor. She'll make you buy more guns!

Or maybe you would stay home and help her train for her upcoming test with the Dallas Cowboys Cheer Squad?

I've been hunting my whole life, but I've had the bug bad for a couple of years now. I recently got married in June. Thinking strategerically about it, I went on an absolute shopping/smith/reloading spree prior to getting married. I wanted to avoid any future discussions regarding the necessity of buying new rifles for my collection. Now, I simply and frequently update my gun safe by trading rifles extremely frequently. I try and vary the cals as much as possible so as to have as much flexibility with game as possible, but in truth, there's not much utilitarianism actually involved in my purchases as there is pure obsession.

I bought my first rifle so I could deer and elk hunt. Now I buy them b/c I don't "have one of those". An example, I have a 470 merkel SXS nitro express (amongst several other big bores, the big bore bug is an entirely different mutation of the bug you have now) I'll use maybe 5 times in my life actually hunting DG (at least hopefully), and I'll shoot it a bunch at the range and at hogs and other varmits, but I don't "need" it. The best way to hault the bug, or at least slow it down, is to establish a limit on the number of rifles you will permit yourself to purchase (I went with 20, yes, a little ridiculous I know), and from that point you can play with reloading and rebarreling etc. If you want a new one, simply convert one of your existing rifles or trade for a new one.

I am currenly trying to shrink my collection by trading in several guns for one nicer or more expensive rifle. It certainly isn't monetarily advantageous, but it feeds the hunger...good luck, but you can't stop the inevitable. Once you've joined a few forums, your hooked for good.
