    So I tell my students "I have 10 guns." They gasp. They think, why on God's green earth, do you need so many..

    They think 10 is 10 too many :rolleyes: :scrutiny:

    I'm waiting to tell my students about people like Tamara...

    twoblink: "I know a woman named Tamara..."
    students: "Does she have 10 guns also?"
    twoblink: "She has more than 10 in just revolvers alone."
    students :what: :what: :what:

    come on.. is 10 really that scary of a number?

    Let's hear your numbers...

    I have 11. But i'm a college student. It's great being at a liberal school and telling people that i'm into guns. They ask home many and when I say 11 they just politely nod and then never talk to me ever again. :evil:

    10-11 guns sounds just about right to me. That is of course until I actually own that many. Then 15-16 will sound about right.

    People like that most likely don't understand the mechanical world in general, and firearms in particular. While they wouldn't be shocked about it like they are with guns they wouldn't understand the desire to own multiple cars either. If you said you owned ten cars, they'd be like why do you need ten cars? Never understanding that each one is different, even within the same model.

    I bought 11 Glock 22's at one time almost a year ago.

    I told my FFL to go ahead and sign the comittment papers if I do something that insane again.

    For some reason, people can collect anything and have hundreds of items, but they think your nuts if you have a bunch of guns. Besides, I'm hoping my collection rolls into three digits in the near future.

    No kidding. My mother collects nick knacky little figurines of snowmen and turtles and I think she's certifiably insane. And even though she is gun neutral, she would probably think that my having four pistols is far too many.

    And you forgot the ever popular shooting the goblin who breaks into your house gun.

    I've got 21...I think. And technically, 2 of those belong to my wife.

    Best gun shirt I saw at the Charlotte gunshow in early April: "If you know how many guns you have, you don't have enough."

    I just got into a conversation with somebody about this--they just couldn't understand why I needed more than one gun.

    After laughing maniacally for a few moments, I attempted to set them straight. ;-)

    Ten guns? Well, you need at least ten handguns:

    1) Target

    2) Morning casual

    3) Late morning semi-causal

    4) Noon formal

    5) Business casual

    6) Business fomal

    7) Afternoon relaxed

    8) Evening hemi-demi-semi formal

    9) Evening formal

    10) Nightstand

    Then, there's owning guns, by make..then there's owning them by model..then there's owning them by the same make and model, but different caliber..

    And of course, I have friends that have the same gun in SA/DA, and DAO.. So what, trigger types make a difference?

    And then, there's owning the same gun but in different calibers.. And then there's the "I have a left kidney and a right kidney, so I bought a left kidney holster, and a right kidney holster...so I needed two of each gun.."

    I catagorize by logistics of course...

    Newbie logistics
    Rifle logistics
    Semi-auto handgun logistics
    Revolver logistics
    Cowboy logistics
    Urban Tactical logistics
    Sniper logistics
    shotgun logistics
    James Bond logistics
    Skunk compatibility logistics
    John Woo logistics
    Poser logistics
    BOB logistics
    SHTF logistics
    woodland logistics
    desert logistics
    guerilla warfare logistics
    hunting logistics
    hunting dangerous game logistics...

    So all together, I find that I'm 24 guns short of filling my required logistics setup...

    34 guns.. that's not too bad right?? :uhoh:

    Guns are just like tools. I have thousands of tools. Each one has a purpose and I'm always needing a different one for a task. Guns/auto tools are used in a profession as LEO and mechanic and they are used for a hobbie, (ex: shooting/restoring vehicles).....:cool:

    Duke, ol' buddy, you'd better pray that your THR honorary chaplain - namely, me - doesn't come to your door! I'll be the first missionary to outgun you... :D
