Should I be worried?

#1 Post by Bucolic » Fri Mar 31, 2017 12:17 pm

I stopped by the LGS on Wednesday and did not find a single thing that I wanted to buy. I checked my temperature when I got home -- 98.3 F. Eyes are clear, no systems acting strange, appetite is good.

Maybe I have everything I need.

...Naw. Must be a phase I'm going through.

Better go to another store with more stuff just to be sure. Could be a problem.

Only worry when you start selling everything off, it's addicting!

(or is it addictive?)

I had the same experience last week. Walked around for a bit and was on my way out when...They (I can blame the sales person, right?) showed my an H&K Turmoil OTF knife. I had no idea I needed a out the front switch blade. But now that I have one, how could I not? :confused:

Ooo. Can we get a picture of the knife? That might break my log jam.

Our local Gander Mt started its closing sale. Walked around for an hour, spent nothing. But their first mark down just brought them into compliance with competition. I'll try again next week.

I think you just have too many now.... Better send some over to RI to lighten the load. :)

I ordered a gravity knife like that from Austria. I have no idea why I did except I was in my cups and online.

Got the Spring sale catalog from a lgs and I've been thumping through it for a week. Nothing I crave. Some carbines on sale, I'll research prices and think about it.

I felt the same way for a bit because I have a number of firearms related projects ongoing, then I saw an ad for the Sig P320 RX. Cured!

I suffered from this affliction very briefly. It doesn't stick. :(

Yeah, I want to build a 10/22 based on Magpul's new Backpacker stock, and that isn't even out yet.

With your love of CZ products, I noticed you still don't have a VZ-58.... And the beech stocks are back :whistle:

If the affliction doesn't reverse in four hours, you should see a doctor. ;)

I felt the same way the last few months but I keep finding new things in the safe. I must be going into some sort of fugue state and ending up at the gun show. :hmmm:

Take a few guns apart and deep clean them! Then relax, go shoot them and then revisit the gun stores. If that doesn't help checkout GunBroker. :beer:
