    According to what I've read, I must be in the neighborhood of "super-super-super (or maybe dooper) owner"!

    Let me go count.:D

    Yah, what I say to people is that if I'm compensating for something, why is my favorite gun the snubnose?

    If I had something to compensate I'd have something like this:

    I haven't read all the posts but I think these numbers could easily be skewed by many things. When growing up, my dad had to "buy" all our guns because of course we were too young. By their logic, he would be a super super owner even though most guns he bought weren't his own.:D

    After all has been said, my summary is this.

    Reporters and progressive crusading academics, who know nothing and care nothing about traditional lawful ownership and use of guns in America but who do blame guns for bad acts by bad people and want to marginalize gun owners to justify gun control, will do a little research and come up with a newly invented phrase like "Super Owner" and act like they have some insight to the "gun culture" they fear and loath.

    Is the number 17 overall or just in 2016? I guess I'd be in the super group either way.

    So if only 3% of us have more than 17 guns that means that you can pass a law banning owning more than 17 guns and only 3% of the people would be effected. Is that what they mean?

    How'd they get that 3% figure anyway? No one asked me anything.

    Also is that just 17 .22s? Is that long guns and short in total? I might be close to just 17 guns in one caliber.

    That isn't what the article says.

    8 guns is the number that makes you a super owner and part of the 3%

    Oh good, another list to be on. Just what we needed.

    I just wish we had some "super" politicians running the country, instead of what we do have.

    Hummmm, I wonder what the crime rate is of this group of "super owners" might be.

    From the piece in the Guardian:

    Oh I see, between 8 and 140 guns each.

    I'm a bit suspicious of that low figure of gun ownership. Have to look into that.

    I am a "super owner" many times over. I guess I am a super super super super super super owner? Do NFA items count as more than 1? Can I include silencers even though they aren't guns? Does a double barrel count as 2? I need this author to contact me. I need clarity.

    I started reading some of the links connected to the article. Some interesting information in the study, or at least the reports of it. Maybe I need to look at the study itself.

    Don't know how accurate it is. but some things tally with what the NSSF and the NRA have told us.

    An increase in the number of women owning guns. A slight decrease in the number of men. More guns sold overall. Also a small number owning more guns (which tallies with more dedicated persons involved in the shooting sports and not just a few guns for self defense).

    Well, they couldn't call us "Three Percenters."
    That was already taken.
