Yea, I do. Admitting it does not seem to help much.
This weekend though is mostly about my brother going with me so he can get a nice rifle, or two since he rarely gets to go.

Actually I do try to improve my collection all the time and maybe I'll see something I got to have.
I generally pass along rifles no longer needed in my collection for pretty close to my purchase price, so I don't feel there is any real harm, except to my annual buying limit.
I actually buy as many of these through other channels than the store or I would be in a constant state of withdrawl

For me it is less about the money and more about collecting the rifles and information

Suuure mostly about your brother.

In all seriousness, hope you find a good one for him!

I'm glad there are collectors like you to record info from rifles from the CMP! The more the merrier. I do the same upgrade method as you, except I do it with vintage toys. Keeps it fun and fresh!

Tom,
Thanks for the report!

Default Saturday opening report

There were three customers at opening, which were Rob30.06 and crew!! If there is something special in the store that I missed I have complete confidence that they will find it and report on it. They are a very knowledgeable group..

Inventory remains about the same as reported yesterday, two 6 million SA's.

Good luck on your searches.

Thanks for the update. I'm sure the time spent with Rob & crew was informative and entertaining.
I guess I won't see Rob at the local gunshow today.
