After spending the afternoon at the gun show yesterday; looking for bargains, and finding nothing but way overinflated prices, I’ve decided to take a new approach to the hobby this year. Instead of buying a new gun or two (or three) this year, I’m going to concentrate on making sure my collection has the proper supporting items for each firearm. Here’s my list: Magazines – 5 minimum, 7 to 10 for certain firearms Sighting system(s) – My eyes are requiring assistance as the years go by. Holster - pistol Sling – rifle, shotgun Ammo – 500 to 1000 rounds to be rotated, depending on use Reloading supplies Carry case Cleaning tools Spare parts Anything I need to add to the list??? Along with the above, I need to make sure the firearm is functioning the way I want it to. This includes accuracy, precision, reliability and fit to my personal body frame…oh, and make it a best fit for a lefty. When I put together a spreadsheet using the above idea, I was staggered by how much effort and money this was going to take. It’s a good thing I’m retiring in a few years, I’ll need the time. The real question is, will I have the discipline to follow through with this idea? Your thoughts?
