The addiction struck again..

Been a while since I checked in here....
I've been enjoying the Ultracarry Tactical I bought a couple of years ago alot. I carry it everywhere, and have not had a hiccup at all with it.
Not long after I bought it, I bought my 11 year old daughter a Bel Aire 380. She's becoming a good shooter with it and adores her Kimber. I caught myself looking at it to carry concealed, but couldn't due the color and she wasn't going to let me get away with using it either.
Besides, I'm not crazy about a 380. I stumbled into the Kimber dealer last week with NO intention to buy anything more than a used computer for my wife (they also have a pawn shop side).
Then I was introduced to the Micro 9 ShotShow 2019 special. All black like I like, hogue style grips and fiberoptic sights. I declined the laser equipped version, no need for gimmicks like that. The price was too good. I put it on layaway until I could figure out how to sweet talk the wife into NOT placing it into a police evidence locker due to my demise.
She was kind and understanding after a steak and a shopping trip, which caused me to possibly own the most expensive Kimber known to man.
But I picked it up today and went straight to the range. Only put a box of shells through it since the daughter was along and made it clear that she would be shooting her Kimber too. Having said that- I really like the little gun. Very accurate and no issues at all.
Shooting the ultracarry immediately after shooting it felt like I had moved to a cannon. Lol. I think it's a keeper...

Not even close! Add a couple Coach pocketbooks then we can talk. You have a very mild addiction.

Oh, the addiction is there- the budget just isn't. I've still got a lengthy list to obtain. And the soon to be 13 year old has already picked out another one for her. The wife actually said she might like a BelAir Micro so there might be another coming to the family soon.

LOL, bless your heart. I only have to worry about gun money for me! Wife and daughter wanting to join in could get expensive. Guess you'll have to take turns picking out pistols.

It's my own fault. What idiot starts his child out with a Kimber?
I knew I was in trouble this last time when I looked at her and asked, "Are you gonna tell Mom on me?" and she answered ,"As long as it's a Kimber or a Henry, I'll be quiet if I can shoot it too. Anything else, I'll tattle".

I feel you 5-0. Two of the four grandkids showed interest in shooting. I bought the oldest girl a Mossberg Blazer 22 rifle in blue camo pattern, she loved it. Bought the oldest boy the Gator stocked Ruger 10/22 he was very excited, for there birthdays late last year.
