Sorry about your friend.I'm having a addiction problem also, every morning with my first coffee of the day, I go to my favorite Canadian gun site and checking out what is for sale! Can't break the habit, I want to down size, so I'm not planning on buying. I'm well stocked on bullets, powder, primers (except Small pistol).
On a down side, a local (2 hour drive) commercial bullet caster, competitive shooter & friend, whom I've been buying from for 30 years passed away yesterday of cancer. While their are others in the province, the cost of reloading just took a huge financial jump.
Retirement is a ball, it's getting old that s*cks.
I'm in the retirement camp myself, but I did budget for a few bucket list items up front, like my bear hunt. But, like you, I still look at all the classifieds and sales. Lot's of "toys" that would be nice to own, but that's where it ends.
I do need more primers and powder, but I'm good on everything else.
