    Not including .22s, I can't really see myself having more than a dozen guns. Over the last six months I've been thinning down my armory to just what I plan to train with.

    Only exception being the .45 Colt Beretta Stampede for the reehaw factor.

    I certainly know I have no NEED to thin out my armory, but don't have a desire for a diverse collection and actually enjoy it more this way. Your thoughts?

    I could live with a dozen or fewer, but I like to have lots of spares. I'm not much for collecting.

    I can't remember a time when there were LESS than a dozen guns in the house I lived in! My father always had at least 40-50, and I've followed in his footsteps. Now my son is following in mine.

    That's like being forced to live with only chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry for the rest of your life (all fine flavours, but sometimes you've gotta try something else); I'm running around 30 now, and always on the lookout for more:)

    Yup, I can picture myself with that many. Heck, I already have 11, and I'm not even 20 years old yet. :) Some are for serious training, and others are just for fun.

    I have almost 3 dozen.....:D

    Can not thin them out - I'd miss whatever I got rid of....

    Besides the others might get lonely......

    Having More than a Dozen?

    I know I'm starting to get Older but I have a hard time remebering when I had less than a Dozen.

    Or Maybe that Memory is just too Painful !!! :D

    Yes, as long as we are talking about the household. I really can't comfortably carry more than 3-4 at any one time.

    Never sell or trade in a proven gun. Otherwise, you will rue the day. If one of your guns is a proven lemon, get rid of it.

    Ummm...allready way over a dozen, but I think I understand the intent there.

    I train with a 1911. So I can say that my Para Ordnance, Springfield, Kimber and Colt are 1 gun.

    I train with a Rem. 870 12 ga. SO all my other 12ga shotguns are 1 gun.

    I train with a AR-15.... Ok my other fifles are drastically different from the AR but you get the point.;)

    Firearms are about the only durable goods which never depreciate in value.....a great investment.....not that that is why I buy 'em!

    So much fun and cheaper than airplanes.

    More than twelve? Yup.

    Well, I'm only at five right now. If left on my own, I'd hit the 30 mark in under a year easy.

    Unfortunately, my soon-to-be-spouse has asked that I never own lots of guns. Twenty seems to be the upper limit but I think she would be happier with one or two.

    It's also nice to take noobs to the range and allow them to shoot different actions, calibers, and all that. Plus, sometimes it's fun to shoot a different gun.

    I could thin down to a dozen and be happy. I could be content with a dozen hanguns and half a dozen long guns for the rest of my life.

    Absolute minimum arsenal for me.
    1 pump shotgun (12 ga)
    2 rifles (1 .22lr and one other cal. .223 or 7.62x39)
    1 revolver (.357 or .38 for target work)
    4 semi auto pistols (1 .22lr, 1 home defense pistol, 1 small carry pistol and 1 target pistol.)

    That is 8 guns. I could be fine with that.

    Every time I shoot a revolver, Sig, Glock, USP or even the almighty 1911, I only remind myself how fortunate I am to be armed with my Langdonized Beretta and P7.

    I like the USP Compact, but my P7 fills its niche, I shoot it better, so it's kinda pointless for me to get one. I'm in love with the USP9C tho, but have no use for one.

    Now if they had carbon fiber doodads for these Sigs Glocks and USP that might be a different story...
