      I just read an article that 75% of all guns owned in the US are owned by 10% of the population. Don't know if it's true, but most gun owners I know own several.

      Thirteen and still clinging!

      I own thirteen auto pistols and revolvers and, yes Obama, i cling to every one of them.
      I'm glad I counted them. Thirteen is a unlucky number. Guess I'll have to go out and buy another one to cling to.

      No matter how many we own, we use only one, each.
      The rest are for backup, bugout, or sentimentality.

      Uh, make that two (2) -- one for each hand. Legally, I only get to carry one (1) concealed; but, open carry is another matter...

      As for how many I own? -- I've got a long ways to catch up with some of you folks. Of course, I have a harder time affording firearms than most guys I know. You see, back when first married, I took my Father-in-law to a local gun show...

      Which would have been good, except 1) I bought a nice little Ruger Single Six with money we could ill afford to spend at that time; 2) I was only supposed to be gone an hour -- it took considerably longer; 3) It happened to be the afternoon of Easter Sunday -- hey, it was also the last day of the gun show; 4) my new bride was at home preparing dinner and "entertaining" the rest of the family w/o my help; and, 5) when I came slinking back home, having belatedly realized I was woefully late & had left her working her tail off while her Dad & I went and had fun, she took one look at the pistol and said, "Wow! You bought me a gun!"

      ...At that point in time, I did the smartest thing I could think of and said, "I sure did! Sorry it took longer than expected to find one that seemed right for you, Honey."

      Ever since, the Family Rule has been: I can purchase whatever firearm I want -- so long as I buy an equivalent make and model for HER first." Thus, that $600 handgun you've been wanting? Well I can buy it anytime I can afford it -- w/o complaints on the domestic front -- it will just cost me $1200 out of pocket. Sometimes, she gets her gun right away, then I have to save a long time to get mine...

      ...So, my collection of handguns is rather meager -- about 8 to 10 depending on which family member you ask (several of my kids seem to think they needn't wait for my demise to "inherit"); my Bride on the other hand? Well now, HER collection is... impressive...

      I know my collection is limited compared to most(4 rifles, 1 shotgun, 4 handguns) but, at 37 yrs old I can honestly say I have never thought to myself-I don't want anymore guns. What a joke....guns are an addiction worse than cigarettes, I was able to quit smoking, cant' seem to quit buying guns, even if it is only when money allows and sometimes not. I guess that means I have a money problem.

      There should be a organization called "GA" like "AA" for people like us!

      In reading over this thread, I suddenly remembered the first time I got asked this question. I was crossing the Canadian Border and the conversation went like this...

      Canadian Border Agent: Where do you live?

      Me: <City Name Deleted>

      Canadian Border Agent: Where are you headed today?

      Me: Grand Forks.

      Canadian Border Agent: Is everyone in the car a U.S. Citizen?

      Me: Yes Sir!

      Canadian Border Agent: Do you have any guns at home?

      Me: Yes.

      Canadian Border Agent: How many guns do you have at home?

      Me: <Silence>

      Canadian Border Agent: Did you understand the question?

      Me: I think so, but you'll have to excuse me a minute, I'm still counting...

      Canadian Border Agent: I see, you have a lot?

      Me: Well, I'm not sure, I never really bothered to count before. I'm up to 37, but I still have pistols and shotguns to go and I think I'm forgetting something.

      Canadian Border Agent: Okay, that's close enough; you didn't bring any with you did you?

      Me: No sir!

      Canadian Border Agent: That's good; have a nice trip.

      ===============

      I've been asked the same thing on subsequent trips; I still don't understand that line of questioning...

      I've only got my G17 at the moment, but I'm really itching for another... Maybe a .45, maybe a 10mm, maybe a nice revolver caliber... I dunno. Maybe I need to get more skilled with the 9mm before I get another. Or maybe not! Ammo and range time are cheaper than a new gun, but I'd also like to broaden my horizons with handguns. I told myself I wouldn't look for another gun till I had at least 1k rounds through the 17, but I"m at about 650 in it now, and I itch!

      It's too late!! By your post, the signs are already obvious. Once you buy one gun you will need another. There is no AA for gunaholics. You will continue to buy guns until they quit making them or you die. There will always be a new and improved gun or a old reliable that you just have to have. I'm sorry to tell you, but there is no cure for your new addiction. The best thing you can do is to start saving your money now, and sell off anything you can't live wothout, you will need the money.
      On the brighter side, your heirs will inherit a fine gun collection someday.

      LOL, I think you're right! But I did put another 200 rounds through it today, so I'm much closer to that 1000 round mark!

      Can I adjust quantities? I recently sold another one. That leaves me with four, if I count the Glock 26 recently released back to my custody by SWMBO and the safe queen 1911 that never gets shot. I am not counting SWMBO's CZ75 or KelTec.

      I have somehow cured the addiction without Handgunners Anonymous.

      Well I get to pick up my new HK USP9c tomorrow so that makes two for me. Next on my list is a S&W .38 special exclusively for the wife or as Mike put it SWMBO and then while looking into my crystal ball I have seen in my distant future a 1911, it was very blury but I think the name on it was Dan Wesson, we'll see what happens.
