    When I had one firearm ... my wife knew I had one firearm. When I had two, they were easy to count. Three was three as well.

    Above three (or four) then my wife started to say, "What do you need all those guns for?"

    All those .... once she stopped using the number of firearms I had and started using the term 'all those guns' I knew she had no idea how many firearms I actually owned.

    After that, it was easy ... get a new one, walk in with it and say, "Just got this back from being re-blued - looks new, doesn't it?" :rolleyes:

    So - from having one or two, this is where I am now ....

    When does a 'collection' become an arsenal anyway?

    That's when you have got her. ;)

    At least that is what we believe. :uhoh:

    Really though, they just humor us. :)

    How are you going to talk her into that safe you need now. :cool:

    Nice guns. I don't own or ever have owned any kind of a gun or weapon...ever.

    haha....Hoping to get to that day soon. Don't really care if my wife knows I'm pulling one over on her or not, as long as I keep getting guns. :D

    Man, this is a "gun room", nice choice, I think you can say "arsenal", but I would say that this is just a big collection.

    When you post a picture of them on the internet. Hehe

    I would love to see the look on a Brady bunch member's face if they accidentally walked into your "tool room".

    I guess that I’m one of the lucky ones. My wife couldn’t care less what I drag home from the gun store. :D

    Nice setup. I wish I had some dedicated space to do the same.

    Well you're golden now - at least until she walks into your little batcave there - then you're screwed, blued, and tatooed! :) Oh, you crazy pathetic guys with wives. The appropriate response to any challenge to your guns by a wife is - "Why are you here blabbering and not in the kitchen getting me a beer?" [I can say that because I'm not married] :)

    Sneak past the wife? Yeah right, get my arse chewed out for not taking her with me! I go gun shopping, she goes too, no if and or butts to it! I pick out one, she finds 2 or 3! her excuse," mine are smaller and cheaper" she says, and smiles at me. Man am I a sucker or what. Jewelry? no, she wants tools. Fancy clothes? no, she wants a new gun,(or used gun) did I mention she is a tomboy? Did I also mention she is 4'9" tall and 106 lbs?? And can't pass the ammo counter without picking up something. HELP, I created a monster. kinda nice actually...

    If she ever walks into the gun room and gets mad you are more than welcome to send some of them to me to appease her:evil:

    As every self-styled "journalist" knows, "arsenal" is the plural of "gun."

    -- Ask her how many pairs of shoes she owns . . .

    "Why do you need all those guns?"

    "It's not the 'Bill of Needs.' It's the 'Bill of Rights.'"

    If you can stow them with open spaces in between, you're not "full" yet.

    I worked for the Virginia Dept of Corrections for years ..... nearly a decade after I left I became friends with a guy that was an armorer for one of Virginia's Super-Max prisons. He had a gas-gun that he bought from a gun store that bought it from the State (actually he had more than one) So he sold me one.

    I kept it for a year or so, decided I didn't need it and sold it.

    About 3 years later I saw one on gunbroker and bought it.

    I don't have any rounds for it, because if you have rubber baton, wood baton, or rubber buckshot, you jump from becoming a non-firearm straight to being a destructive device :eek:

    I might pay the 200.00 and register it as a DD, but I haven't decided for sure yet.

    Oh - it is a 37mm

    Nice guncabinet.
    When does a collection or gunsafe become an arsenal?
    This is of course a matter of semantics, but still, here are my 2 cents on the question.
    The difference between a collection and a arsenal is a question of intentions. If you have 50 identical AR15s for your own enjoyment, then they are a collection or "gun safe" if you have 50 different guns, from a 10/22 through singleshot shotguns and other hunting rifles, up to more military useful weapons, and of considerable value for a collector, but your intention with these guns is to arm a militia, then they are an arsenal.
    Of course, in the eyes of BATFE and the MSM everything beyond one .38 revolver, one 20 gauge shotgun and one 10/22 is an arsenal.

    are those handguns riding on steel hooks shoved down the bore?

    I'd be somewhat leery of rifling and crown damage...
