Let's see, when I first replied, I was in the 3 - 5 category, with just three handguns in the house.
Now I have:
Ruger Blackhawk - .357
Ruger Vaquero - .357
Kimber Compact CDP II - .45ACP
Ruger P89 - 9mm
Kel Tec P3AT - .380ACP
Yep, still in that category.
Of course, now 3Reds has added another Vaquero, a Glock 19, a Bersa thunder, and a Kel Tec P3AT, raising the total to 9 in the house.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
Can I change my count? It'll be 2 next week
Revising my count down by another one, with the PF9 sold. I also have a buyer lined up for the wife's CZ75B, so the stable will soon be almost empty. I'll only have two Glocks, two KelTecs, and one old Colt Commander. I don't know if I can cut any deeper than that...
I currently own three handguns, one Glock and two Smith & Wessons.
I do not plan to buy any more any time soon.
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.
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
Let's see....XD .45 Service model, XD .45 compact, Taurus PT1911 .45, Witness 9mm wonder finish, Bersa Thunder .380, Ruger LCP. Just sold Witness P .45 to my son, going to turn that money over on a Glock 19. Not near enough yet!!!
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 three now, with one more on the way....
i have a whopping 0 my 21st birthday cant come fast enough! i cant wait to start my collection! and hopefully ill have an ak coming soon
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"
Up to 3 handguns now. Personally just looking to have a total of 5, one each in .22, 9mm, .45, .357, and .44
I just picked up my second. Two handguns, two shotguns.
