I am a gun accumulator with little direction towards collecting. My guns reflects what my shooting interests were at the time such as Cowboy Action Shooting. A couple of years ago I did a inventory of what I have and realized that I was actually under armed for self-defense especially if I was to have a gun taken as evidence in a self-defense shooting and if it is necessary to arm family members in a group defense situation. After careful consideration (mainly how much $$$$ I have) I adopted the "3 is 2, 2 is1 and 1 is none" theory for self-defense firearms. Unlike you I don't want to get rid of what I already own as I enjoy a wide variety of shooting so I have to buy additional guns from my budget. I have made good progress on the "2 is 1" part of my goal so my focus for 2018 is mainly ammunition and reloading supplies. However I am not totally locked into this plan. I am going to wander off course sometime before next summer and buy a small .22 rifle to teach my one of my Grandsons to shoot. I am thinking about a Henry AR-7. I strongly suspect the biggest problem I am going to have is having enough 22 ammunition once the adult kids get ahold of it.
