    1. Am now a better shooter, therefore deserve it!

    2. It will insure better scores!

    3. May need it for back-up.

    4. Need a higher quality gun, will get me more respect!

    5. Not enough adjustments on present gun!

    6. Present gun doesn't fit anymore!

    7. Present gun has started kicking harder(see # 6)

    8. Not a consistent target breaker as it used to be.(check owner)

    9. Need a less expensive gun now that I'm shooting less and can't justify the
    $12,000 gun I'm shooting. Besides it's not THE gun, right?

    10. Owning a different gun is what makes "Variety the spice of Life!"

    I'm sure there are plenty of other reasons, feel free if you got any to add! Biff

    11. It was an impulse buy......right next to the cash register. You know, it's where they keep the hi end combo guns.

    12. It followed me home, can I keep it?

    13. Cronic case of new gun flu.

    I have been shooting my high rib TMX for 21 years but after a couple of bad Handicap scores I got the notion that maybe I was shooting off the end of the barrel instead of the rib. I figured I could cure the problem with a new gun with a conventional height rib. Being a devout cheapskate I bought a single barrel for my MX-3 Doubles gun and experimented with that. Guess what ?? there is nothing wrong with the TMX and I still use it for Handicap but I am dabbling with the MX-3 for Singles and my average is the same or lower so go figure!

    Because ______________ shoots one and they did ____________. So if I get this gun then I can do ____________________. You get to fill in the blanks as it changes from gun to gun. Isn't this fun????

    Because there is 365 days in a year and NO-One should have to shoot the same one two days in a row.

    Because my birthday is coming up and I want to treat myself to a really good gun...............Since no one else is going to do it for me......

    Also, because I want to help jump start the economy of our country.

    And.........Because Shootlow says I don't need another new gun.......lol

    New guns are so shiny and unblemished; lever way to the right, a bit stiff to open, breech is unscarred, packing grease smells so good, Todd Nelson can always use the work, it’s good for the economy, etc…etc!

    MOST importantly; I’m an American and I can!
