Anyone have this happen to them?

I realized the other day that aside from a trigger, trigger guard and reciever, I had enough "spare parts" laying around to put together a new gun? Imagine my good fortune when I saw a reciever for sale on this forum! All I need is a trigger and the guard- got myself a Frankenruger for pretty cheap.

Hmmm. Now, about that barrel and stock, a trigger job, bolt work, scope and mounts, etc.

Do I need an intervention, or should I just surrender myself and my wallet to this addiction?

You must EMBRACE your addiction. Celebrate it with your friends. BRAG about it!
My friends are sick of hearing about and seeing my 10/22s. They just don't understand. They think one gun that works is enough for anybody.............................dumba$$'$

And to answer your question.........Yes, I just finished yet another 10/22.
Now guess what???????????? If I had just 1 more receiver, I could build yet another. Okay, I'll build just 1 more then I'm selling out. Any extra parts will be sold, or thrown out...............Easier said than done. I thought you guys were crazy when you said this was adictive. LOL BOY was I wrong.

I'm going to embrace my addiction this weekend, and become a PUSHER too. I'm going to entice my (adult) friends with a free sample, and then explain how 'really, these things cost next to nothing'.... and then... they too will be hooked, and our membership will swell!

Bwwaahaaahaaa!

Addiction? Well in a word, YES! My wife knows that I suffer from it, and that the brown truck brings the only treatment... Of course, she does admit that it is better than me sitting on a barstool somewhere.. :)

Of course, it all started out with one 10/22 picked up at a gunshow for $100 cash. "It's cheap to shoot" was my justification. Today, "Brown Truck is delivering a couple thousand rounds of Eley .17Hm2 to feed that "cheap to shoot" gun.

Still better than sitting on a barstool somewhere I guess...

:yeahthat: Exactly!
I currently have 6 barrels, 4 stocks, 1 receiver, 2 trigger groups waiting for assembly of some sort and two new receivers and bolts on order. Oh... and one barrel and two other stocks on order.

DOH!!! :eek:

I think when I have 22 I will quit. Really. Seriously! No... I mean it this time! No kidding!
