First I bought the M1921A (which I'm still waiting on paperwork for)

Then today I paid for a C&R MP 40 (which I won't truly own till what---February 2005?)

And now I'm thinking about my friend who owns a mint C&R Sten......

And there's the guy I know with the C&R MP44

I guess my wife of 25 years knows me better than I thought. She said when I signed up for the Thompson, promising that I just wanted one SMG that there was no way I would only buy one.

Is there such a thing as SMG detox, or perhaps a 12-step program for compulsive obsessive collectors?

Congrats on the purchases!

I say the same thing, I would like to have just one FA.

But then I said I only wanted one hive of honey bees. After a very short time I ended up with 19, and a complete in house honey processing plant, and bulk storage system.

LOL, yep, I know the scenario all to well!

If Kerry gets in, we may have our guns but then the ammo will be selling for $5.00 per round on the black market. I'm sure that he will make us all offers on our guns as well.

Lets see what is steel going for now as scrap?

yep! that's great news on the new and upcoming item's. however there is no detox program or cure for the disease..

the only final solution is death!!.that will make you stop buying!!

so enjoy it all now and for many, many more year's to collect these fun thing's...for they are part of history.

enjoy and have fun.take care,ron

I believe the 12 step program is to buy 12 full auto's....
Then trade them about for the remainder of your days! smile.gif
