    How many handguns do I own?

    I started with 3 Taurus PT111's 2- 9mm and a 380 and 2 cute little 25's that fit so well in my purse. Then I saw a Kimber, bought 2-45's. Now I have a Sig addiction; have 2 on the way. I buy all my handguns in 2's. I have a daughter that loves guns as much as I do. And if I don't buy 2, I'll be missing mine. I also have a S&W 357 the ex bought me, so my total is 8 with 2 more on the way.

    Another one bites the dust! The CZ75B is sold! I am down to a pair of Glocks (both 9mms), a pair of KelTecs (a .32 and a .380) one of which is actually the wife's, and one old Colt Commander (.45) with huge sentimental value.

    I do not know if I can cut any deeper, but we shall see.

    I am going the other way. I keep getting more. I'm up to 16 pistols as of today. I have some long guns too but that's another thread I guess. Most are range toys or investment pieces. I look at a well made gun as an art form. If I wen to to selling some I'd probably just get different ones
    So I just leave them be and try not to spend too much time around gun shops I go to a range though and see something that really looks like it be great to shoot and ...well..There I go again

    I'm in the minority, but that's okay. I'm very much a minimalist, and my only interest in handguns is defensive. At this point in my life, I very much see guns as simple tools, rather than works of art (while SWMBO and I do own some original art, they are paintings). There are things I'd rather spend money on, and guns aren't really great investments compared to some other things.

    But hey, without guys with 10+ handguns, I'd be out of a job.

    I have an artistic view on knives, swords, and other sharp steel bladed objects. I've been infatuated with items of that nature for as long as I can remember and I own a variety.

    I generally have 16-18 handguns on hand at any given time. The exact composition changes as I like to swap them around but I generally stay around this number. I tend to have more 1911s than anything else as I shoot this platform the best. Right now I have 4 of them, 2 Springers, a Taurus, and a Para. Just picked up an XD 45 but haven't tried it out yet...

    When this poll started I was in the 15-20 category. I just bought a new MP 9 Pro, so I am now in the 20-25 category. I seem to lean toward S & W since 10 are S & W pistols or revolvers.

    Not enough ! I'd have to set down and think about how many I have and where they are in the house.

    Only 2, a Glock 17 and a Glock 26. I've got a .22 LR kit for the 17, though, does that make it count 1 and a half? Oh, and the wife has a 3" S&W M66 and a single-six. I guess the two precision rifles (6.5X55 and .30-06), the M1A, the Galil 5.56, the two AK's, and the 870 social 12-gauge don't count for this thread. I really don't have room for any more, as it turns out ammo takes up a lot of space! Had an interesting conversation with the wife the other day:
    her: "look at my new purse!"
    me: "how many purses can you possibly need? can't carry but one at a time"
    her: "any how many black rifles can you possibly need? can't carry but one of them, either"
    me: "boy, that sure is a pretty purse, honey, you should have got one in both colors"

    Bought my first earlier this year (9mm), bought my wife her first (22) a couple months later, got our third (357 revolver) last week and I'll be looking for another this weekend.

    And so it begins! You are helplessly snared in the "gotta have one more" trap! There is no escape, just enjoy it till the money runs out!

    How many guns...?

    Three, going on four. (Number four gets picked up Friday or Saturday) Good story behind this last one: Went to Cabela's with a $20.00 OFF coupon in my pocket and decided to take another look at the Bersa UC Thunder. As I entered, the doorman gave me a card showing discounts for signing up for a Cabela's charge card but since I already had one I paid it no mind.
    No large Bersa's on display, but the clerk found one in the stockroom and brought it out still dripping with gun oil (a Bersa characteristic). Price was $330.00.
    So, in my best bargaining mode, I asked if they could get it down to $299.00. Nope. But then one of the salesmen asked if I had a Cabela's card. When I answered,"Yes, but..." he said, "Then I can give you $70.00 off."
    "You have a sale," I said.
    Bottom line: $330-70.00-20.00 means I walk out the door Friday with a NIB Bersa .45UC Thunder and two magazines for $240.00.
    Now, who wants to tell me there ain't no Santa Claus?

    Just a Glock 19 for now, but I feel the "bug"....

    Once my CHL gets here, I imagine I'll buy more. In fact, I think a .45 will come next so I have both ends of the spectrum. After that, I'll fill in the middle<G>.

    Cheers,

    I have one question. Is it possible for the government to request or through the court obtain these posts? Could they force the fourm hosts to give up any info they have? If so, why would we want the government to know anything more than we are required to tell them? I realize a new purchase has a paper trail, but how many of you have bought guns from individuals? Just a thought from a person who may or may not own a gun.
