    Drunk purchases gone too far!!!!!

    Anyone ever done a dumbass drunk purchase over the internet?

    I did one literally yesterday, bought a 1873 trapdoor springfield in armory condition, why because I was drunk. Granted I always wanted such a magnificent piece of american history, and I technically have the money for it, I however like to save my money and stay well above what I need between paychecks. This was a real drunk off my ass oh that looks cool purchase, so question is who else has done this, I know many will deny but have done the same!

    If it's a vintage one that's pretty cool. If it's a replica that's still cool but not COOL.

    The Springfield trapdoor lost some of its cachet after Custer's men were carrying them at the Little Bighorn

    You might want to consider a more complicated password or security arrangement you cant bypass when drunk. This of course presumes you wish to continue to get drunk.

    Similar to "a drunk man's words are a sober man's thoughts", drunk buying is simply what the sober person desires, but puts off for one reason or another. Drunks tend to be impulsive.

    Yes, I'm guilty of drunk Amazon shopping. I have a nice collection of flags and little electronic gadgets plus a one ounce chunk of meteorite.

    I am pretty good about not buying stuff untill something really awesome crosses my path, part of my problem is collecting guns I can afford but should not, and the internet allows me to buy them when drunk and pick them up sober when it is too late to change my mind when I realized I spent too much reserve money on a luxury I did not need.

    Assuming it's what you thought you were buying, you'll decide over time if it's right for you. It sounds really cool to me.

    I have an 1865 50-70 trapdoor - very rare - with matching bayonet (even rarer as neither the 58 musket nor 45-70 bayonet fits it). The 45-70 trapdoors are common as dirt and they used to sell them out of barns where they were stacked like huge wood piles as military surplus 45-70s mail order for next to nothing as the military used the 45-70 for many years. Nearly all Trapdoors for sale are 45-70s. The 50-70 was transitional between the 58 and 45 caliber. The 45-70s are collectible because all trapdoors are, but they are not rare. They were the poor man's hunting rifle for a very long time.

    I'm with you on that. I have dozens of firearms I purchased online - most of which are antique. Then again, that is how I got most of my coolest, rarest and best bargains (though burned a few times too). Online shopping can be addictive. Is it really a bargain if all you are going to do is put it in a safe and never see or use it?

    I actually wanted a 45-70 to shoot, it may be true drunk purchases are sober desires without common sense and sobriety to act as a check. My problem is it is relegated to blackpowder only which is 2 bucks per round, which is not much more that smokeless cowboy rounds at 1.50 per round, I realize this is one of those few rounds where reloading is cheaper.
