I feel this adrenaline feeling when fondling a new gun for purchase.... It even has made me mess up while filling out a 4473 form! :supergrin:

It's just something exciting about taking a new firearm home!:tongueout:

Great. Now they'll add that question to the 4473. "Are you the actual buyer of this firearm?" Check. "Are you aroused?" Uh, Oh.

Personally? I like the research leading UP to the purchase... It makes the final purchase so much more satisfying when you've done your homework and KNOW your gonna love it. I bought my G23 with a GIANT grin on my face... *checks mirror* Yup, still there. =)

Short Answer: Yes!

I tend to like the shooting more than the buying...

Of course!

I just ordered #68 this afternoon!!!


If I hadn't sold a bunch to buy a house I would be well over 80!:wow:


It's a great feeling.

I think as a species we have evolved to get a rush when buying just about anything. Whether it's new tools, guns, vehicles, electronics, etc we get an endorphine rush. It's even better when it's something we truly love, like guns.

People get excited just like buying a car, closing a deal, etc. That rush happens to all of us in one way or another. the mrs gets it from her shoes. I go to a gun store/range and want to fondle/have fun with all the goodies, just like when I go to Hooters or the Nudey Bar :whistling:

Ditto, it's fun to research and learn about a new gun.

The week I hit the lotto, would be the week some national law would go into effect where only one gun a month would become law!:crying:

Not as fun as shooting, but, way up on the list, of what I like about firearms! Man the stories I could tell. Like I said way, way up on the list of what I like about firearms.:cool:

I totally hear you, man. I love the moment of picking up a new gun.

Usually, I try to make a whole day out of it that I take time with and relish.

I'll generally clear the whole Saturday. Get up early thinking about it. Drive down to the LGS. Take my time with the final inspection. Talk to the salesman as much as possible. Then, when the purchase is finally complete, I'll head to the range for some quality shooting time. Fire a box of rounds. Field strip and clean barrel.

Get home, do a thorough cleaning.

Rinse and repeat!

For me, it's been more of the great feeling I get exercising my right! Each time I bought a gun, it makes me think how lucky we are to be in one of the few countries where gun ownership is even possible (so far).

Damn I cannot find the article, but just the other day I read something that said for the first time in years, men outpaced women in purchasing items for themselves.

They talked about how while most compulsive shoppers are female, men are catching up. While women focus on Clothing, Jewelry, purses and shoes, guys focus on electronics, sporting goods (including guns), automotive accessories, and tools.

There is a pursuit to pleasure aspect to shopping similar to eating and sex.

No rush. I don't impulse buy, but spend days/weekeeks investigating the product and pricing before the transaction.

Honestly I just get nervous. When I bought my AR stripped lower it took them an hour to respond to my background check, and when they finally did, they replied with a month and a half hold. The dealer asked me if I had a history. Nothing. Spotless. He then wrote down a number on his business card and told me the squeaky wheel gets the grease. He told me to call them and in a respectful tone ask what is going on and why a hold was put in my purchase. About the time he finished explaining that to me, they changed my status and I was good to go. I don't like the fact that my right to purchase and bear arms is more of a privilege now, and that the government can stop me from purchasing a firearm, or put me on a hold for no reason at all.

I do get excited once the LGS door closes behind me and I own a new gun free and clear, but no, the purchasing process does not excite me one bit. It makes me feel oppressed. I know a lot of countries have it worse, but that doesn't make it right.

I get a rush for sure!

I find something I like, research the hell out of it, scrape/save for it for a long period of time & then go in for the purchase kill. :rock:

Well....the AR bug bites people differently.

Those with money buy AR after AR.

Being poor, buying accessories, mags & ammo.....and actually going shooting, is the big fun.

I could go buy a new AR today, but it doesn't interest me. Now, a TA31 series ACOG for my AR would be an exciting purchase, but the actual shooting would be the most fun part. In fact, for me, parting with the money is the hardest part.

Buying a pistol? Boring.

I used to, but I've just about completely lost interest in guns. I haven't bought one in over two years. It's hard for me to justify paying so much for something I use so little.

It may be different if I had somewhere where I could do more than just stand in one place and fire a shot no more frequently than every two seconds.

Yes! Researching them is what gets me in trouble because I spend so much time researching the guns and upgrades. Then when I do buy it she's just glad I'm not on the net so much researching.

Hell Yes I get excited! I've bought dozens and I love every part of the research, the actual search, the physical inspection, and the purchase! I hope and doubt that it will ever get old to me!

Buying is a great rush but, paying is a downer. Temporarily of course.

Do you get a Rush out of Gun Buying?

Not really. It makes me happy to get something I wanted but I don't really get a rush out of it.

My, "Rush" comes from shooting and running hard on drills at the range, pushing myself faster and faster until I start to screw up. I always try to push my limits when I shoot and get better every time I go to the range.

That's what gives me a rush if you want to call it that.
