    I’m having withdrawals from my online habit of buying guns/brass/barrels/you name it. My job has been deemed essential (plumber), but if things don’t get better soon, I can imagine people deciding that some minor issue can wait, rather than having someone go into their house. People are already asking if I’m sick or have symptoms. I wear shoe covers, gloves, and a face mask. I haven’t bought anything in a a couple of weeks or more. But still, browsing the classified section is a hard habit to break. Full disclosure: I did bump my Wanted ad for plastic ammo boxes...but those are cheap.

    Wondering if it’s just me.

    I have an itchy "Buy It Now" finger -- but for a good restaurant meal, not gun stuff. I am discovering just how bad a cook a 64-year-old dude can be. Going into 3 weeks now cooking all meals at home (I did relent for one Fast Food take-out).

    I’m learning to cook because I get tired of mediocre food and service at fast food and casual dining places. There are some really good cooking shows on TV now. Not those dumb contest shows, but things like America’s Test Kitchen, Cook’s Country, and Good Eats. I have made lots of good meals from those shows and their cookbooks and magazines.

    NOPE, not me ! Yes, it's a hard "Habit" to break, for sure ! But how much STUFF, do we, "need" ?? ( careful on, the "wants" ! )
    I'm waiting patiently to, buy some, CEF's and ETF's and start collecting,.. Dividends, again ! ( been OUT of, the Stk Mkt for, Months, now ! )
    Way better, Prices to, come for "everything" as, this "crap" ( C-Virus ) and, a POOR Economy, is just getting started, unfortunately !
    As far a Guns go, I'll start rotating back to, what I thought was FUN to shoot, last year and the year, before !
    Right now, I'm "playing with" my .22 LR then, back to .243 Win and the .22-250 Rem & .223, etc.
    Might do some, long Range Steel "Field" Shooting with, my Big Bore for, some serious,.. Deer / Elk hunting, Practice !
    Already, "stocked up" on "needs" and most wants, so no need to buy, anything,. YET ! Have PATIENCE, Bro !

    I get itchy if I don't have at least one item inbound always. Sometimes ordering something that may take two weeks to get is a good thing. Mike

    Where are you TAG? I'm in a small town called Williams. Biggest thing of note here is a Dam and good fishing although I'm not much of a fisherman-especialy river. Probably that has been beat into me, I grew up on a Dairy farm and was always taught river stuff was bad. Ponds were fine though and I've caught a lot of Bass out of them. I can remember me and my sisters all being in our biggest pond at milking time in the afternoon and the cows pissing and shitting in a massive way right in the pond, but that was all good

    I am looking to improve my inventory of shooting tools (guns, loading equipment, ammo, etc.). I think gun owners should make sure as many vendors supplying us should survive this enemy.

    Save a gun shop. Use corn cobs instead of toilet paper and spend your money on a new gun!
