    Just thinking

    So I was looking at at all the hand guns I own, and then i ask my self out of them which one does it's job pain free and problem free. well there is only one answer my Glock 23. so now i am thinking of sell my other 7 handguns and buying a G19 only owning these two instead so many different brands. And if i gt bored I can just swap out my G23 barrel with my storm lake .357 sig barrel. What more does one need. Two Glocks it's the best option.

    One flaw in your plan KC - you don't own a revolver.

    I agree with unpecador, keep an example from each of the three finest pistol manufacturers in the world.

    But the 19, and the 23 fill the same roll... Why own two???

    I say settle on caliber, and buy the range...

    If you're staying with Glock, keep the 23, and get a 27, and a 24 or 35...

    One platform, one caliber...

    I agree.

    Buy some major amounts of bulk ammo and shoot away.

    I basically boiled my handguns down to two Glocks and a KelTec. I look at handguns as defensive tools and nothing more. Since I'm not a true hobbyist, the Glocks and KelTecs work well for me. I like shooting the Glocks as well as any other handgun, though I train rather than shoot for fun.

    I support your idea. I'd even take it a step further. Ditch the .40 and get a pair of 9mms. 9mm works fine for fighting and is cheaper and faster/easier to shoot.

    Interesting thread. I know that stocking up guns isn't a waste of money, but if you're not going to shoot it...get rid of it.

    My personal opinion on what guns you should own:
    2-3 pistols (all Glocks)
    Shotgun
    AR
    Bolt

    That's pretty much all I need. But...when I assess, I end up shooting more of the pistols and shotgun. So let's nix out the Bolt.

    Ahh better:
    Glocks
    Shotgun
    AR.

    I like the idea of having a few guns and stocking up on ammo.

    Having sold or traded far too many guns in my time, I would recommend that you learn from my mistakes and don't sell or trade any of your guns unless you are in dire financial straits or you absolutely hate or do not trust one of your current firearms. Otherwise you will regret the sale of an otherwise good firearm.

    I've sold dozens. The only one I regretted was an M1 Garand, but I was young and needed the money. I eventually replaced it and am pleased with my current M1, though I shoot it little.

    I think some guys get emotionally attached to their guns, much like lots of guys do with cars and such. I just don't get that way about "stuff." If I don't have a use for a gun, I just don't see a reason to keep it. It'll just gather dust in the safe, and what's the use of that? So I can say I have two dozen guns instead of half a dozen? I'd rather not have the money tied up in a useless (to me) object, and I'd rather the gun be in the hands of someone who will use it and enjoy it.

    I'm taking this one better. I just own the one pistol and one shotgun. I joined the local indoor range, which includes unlimited free pistol rentals (on their range) to members. I'm seriously thinking that all my practice time should be on their FNP9 instead of the one I paid for. This reduces wear on my pistol while allowing me to train on that is more than close enough for a patzer like me. Am I missing something?

    Hmmm...
    I have a small bunch of guns sitting in the safe, all of them quite valuable (although not anything "collectible"). They are going to stay there because they are part of my "legacy" (and you can take that any way you like).
    There are my competition pistols, which also carry well as defensive weapons, and a custom-built "shortie" 1911, all from a master gunsmith and friend now dead. There's the Semmerling I inherited from my shooting coach and dear friend, by way of another dear friend, both now dead too. There's more, but nobody wants to read my inventory.
    The point is, someday one or both of our children, or their children if they ever get around to producing any, may enjoy owning something personal that I used to good effect, and maybe one or more of them will enjoy using my guns too.
    Let them make the decision about whether or not to sell these various guns, depending upon whether or not they need either money or nostalgia.
    Until then, they'll stay in our safe at least holding their value, and maybe even appreciating, until that "decision time" comes.
    Like property and gold, guns hold their value over the long term, and sometimes even appreciate markedly. If a gun is meaningful to you, or possibly to your spouse or progeny, I say keep it. You can't lose.

    I am not so much attached to them in the sentimental aspect but more the $$$. It's hard to take such great losses when reselling them. I will weed them out one by one, but then I think what happens if the elction go's the wrong why and i have sold 8 very nice High cap guns. this is why my Ar SKS and Ak will collect dust forever.
