Gun goodies cost us more than we think
I did some thinking today, and realized how easy it is to spend a fortune on gun stuff besides the guns. For instance, for my snub SP101 I have six holsters totalling about $ 250. I have two speedloaders and a nylon carrier, $ 45. Six speed strips, $ 40. Two different grips, extra, that were $ 45. That's $ 380. Not even counting a Wolff spring kit, and a baggie full of about $ 200 in spare parts.
At least the grips and most of the parts fit either of my SPs. The .22 only has four holsters, four speedstrips, and a spring kit added; about $ 120 there, so $ 700 in goodies for the two guns.
The Bearcats share too, but I've probably got $ 400 worth of stuff for them. The 10/22, maybe $ 200 counting mags.
All the generic stuff like Plano cases, rugs, tools, cleaning gear, targets, whatever adds up too. I figure I've got three grand in guns, and two grand in gun "stuff"........

I have a pile of holsters for my SP, a few speed loaders and strips and I bought a couple of wood inserts for the grips. Oh ya I forgot when I had the shoulder surgery I bought a set of CT laser grips for it as my strong side was completely immobile for 6 weeks and restricted for a few months after. Figured I could hit something with the off hand with the laser if I needed to. That is sitting on the shelf down cellar as I prefer the insert grips.

In a recent post I told how I had sold my AR 57. This post brings to light the amount I had spent on the AR 57 @: $ 850.00, FN pistol @ $ 1,200.00, Scope @ $ 1500.00, 137 boxes of FN 5.7 X 28 @ $ 23.00/box, 7-fifty round mags @ $ 30.00 each and 6-30 caliber ammo cans @ $ 10.00 each.
The total is over the $ 6,000.00 it brought on the sale.
Worst of all, I really miss the security I had owning it.
Then there are the three Kimber 38 supers with grip lasers @ $ 1500.00 each, not counting the 6000 rounds of ammo.
I'll not go further as my hobby is just that, a hobby.
I enjoy my gun time and as long as I can afford it, I'm going to hang in there until the safe can hold no more.

Believe it or not, I own 2 holsters. I basically carry one gun. (Shield 9mm) I have one holster that didn't work out and one that does. I pretty much buy guns and way more ammo for them than I really need.
