If I had only purchased 1 additional gun in the last year I would find it hard to show my face in public!
I think that I have become somewhat of a gun snob, I’m not talking about cost nor a well known brand, I’m talking about not being willing to purchase a gun from a manufacturer who is just starting out or even worse to build or buy a gun someone else built, there is a reason why good manufacturers employ the type of people they do, do the testing they do and have the manufacturing equipment which they make their products on, their stuff has been proven over a period of time, I will not become a test dummy for anyone!
Over the last 50 years I buy guns, I rarely ever sell or trade but will from time to time give a gun away. I have more guns than I will ever need but that is not the point, someone will come up with something new and if that something new will give me some advantage I will purchase.
In addition to purchasing weapons I reload and try to learn more about the sport of shooting which can also save lives, true use of a gun is more of a chess game but most who have a gun are busy playing checkers when they should be learning from people with credentials and training to make new skills mine so that the “thinking” part has already been done and when the time comes I will make the proper decision.
Make good decisions with your weapon, buying and using in the coming year and I wish all of you well!
