buying just because of the price

Have you ever bought a gun(s) just because of the price? I do it from time to time and I'm about to do it again. I REALLY don't need them(2) but I hate to pass up a deal.

Re: buying just because of the price

brother, you suffer from the same affliction as I do!! In 2010 I bought 18 guns, 12 of them because the price was just unbeatable. The look on my wife's face when I would tell her "it is too good to pass up" was priceless. Toward Dec. she made me promise 2011 wouldn't be anywhere near the same

Re: buying just because of the price

All the time. I have a shotgun named 60 bucks. Its a name brand 20 gauge pump in perfect shape. A guy stuck his head in my office one day and asked me if I wanted to buy it. It retails for $350, but did not turn me on at all so I said no. As he turned away he said boy, I sure need 60 bucks to pay some bills. SOLD ! I use it from time to time just because !

Re: buying just because of the price

About half the guns I bought over the years were because "the price was right" Looking for a gun, and something close to what I was looking for was on sale. I can't say they were bad choices. Most of them I sold for the same or more used than what I bought them new for.

It's sort of like buying a car. You know what you want, but something makes you buy something else. I swear every time I'm looking I won't do that again............

Re: buying just because of the price

Yep. I got a Rossi Mod. 65 in 45 Colt, a Ruger Blackhawk in 357, and a Ruger Security Six simply because they were all at a price I couldn't refuse. Now I don't know what to do with them...

Re: buying just because of the price

I do it at least once a week!
My therapist says it will pass eventually.
Till then - I'll keep buying (and selling) till I find the ones I want to keep

If it's locked up and put away - Your NOT safe!

Re: buying just because of the price

Yep- one of those things - can't pass up a bargain and a good reason to add another to the collection
