This week marks 2 years since the last time I went out to the range. It's now been over 4 years since the last time I went hunting.
I've owned a number of firearm platforms. Ever since I've had kids, my interest has waned, and I have been slowly selling off most all of my firearms. What I have left has been safely locked away in a large safe, and has not been anything that has been even a remote risk to my kids.
But they are getting bigger, and I have been asking myself... when will I go out for a hunting weekend. Do I even want to. When will I be able to go out and hit the range... again do I even want to.
I find myself wanting to be at home hanging out with my kids moreso than wanting to swing by the range near the office. Setting aside money that I would have put towards ammo for a range trip, towards a few toys I want to get for the kids.
Priorities seem to have fully shifted.
So I am looking at reasons to keep what I have, or what to sell, or where to go next in general. Figured this is as good a place as any to soundboard things.
I am currently down to my hunting rifle, one older revolver that is the only one my wife likes, and my two 1911s. None of them are high value items, the one 1911 is an Argentine Modelo Sistema 1927 that is frame only and fully customized/modded, while the other is an Officer's Model sized RIA that is again just frame only with everything else custom. I very much like them since I paid peanuts and made them into what I wanted.
So... just seeing what I am going to do. Listening to opinions, and just collecting ideas. I'll load up some photos as time permits.
