3 Now :smt023
I just ordered the XD9SC on wednesday.
3 Guns is less than 3 weeks....I think I'm done for a while....I think.....maybe....:watching:
Around 20 now,,
Have been threw more than 50.
I like buying ,selling ,trading
i am now up to 7
got the ruger lcp today
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.
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.:smt1099
No matter how many we own, we use only one, each.
The rest are for backup, bugout, or sentimentality.
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 only have one currently untill the nice people on this site put up some guns I want for sale :mrgreen:
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.:smt022
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?
Canadian Border Agent: How many guns do you have at home?
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!
On the brighter side, your heirs will inherit a fine gun collection someday.:smt033
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.
I currently have 9 handguns
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.
Lets see 5 so far
High Standard 107 9 shot 22
Ruger MKII 22
Mak 9X18mm Bulgie Circle 10
High Point 45 acp
S&W Sigma 40VE
6-8 I think........:rolleyes:
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.
Can I change my count? It'll be 2 next week :smt033
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.
