    Over the past years I've bought and sold a gun or two usually just keeping 1 shotgun and 1 pistol at a time. Now all of a sudden over the past year they've started multiplying now I'm double digits! I'm almost embarassed to tell my gf when I buy anOther one. Did the same thing happen to y'all?

    If you keep them separated they won't multiply.

    I don't sell perfectly good guns... I buy them. Also, someday the ATF may ask you to show them where all the guns went.

    You've got nothing to be concerned about until you hit triple or quadruple digits. :D

    I thought that I had quit for good when I sold my guns in the 80's. But no matter how much I wanted out......they just kept pulling me back in......Now I'm in the double digits again. And the prices......!!!

    You can send any litter over-runs to me. I provide a quality foster home for wayward firearms and can help you to avoid that "hoarder" stigma. :evil:

    I tried putting trigger locks on but they're still multiplying like rabbits.

    BP Hunter,
    I tell my girlfriend every time she comes home with new shoes I'm coming home with a new rifle or at least can of ammo.

    Don't worry my friend!
    It's happened to the best (and worst) of us - me included.

    I'm up to 13 handguns, 3 rifles & 5 shotguns.
    There's still 3 more handguns I'd like, maybe I'll have to trade a couple in order to get more.

    Seriously, is there a limit as to how many we can have?

    Stuff them all in expensive leather and wear them out with tons of ammo! It's the only way to stop the epidemic!

    Just go and get yourself a C&R FFL. Then you're not an addict anymore. You're a "collector." And you'll giggle like an imbecile when UPS starts delivering Walthers, Mosins, Mausers and Garands straight to your doorstep.
    I've been averaging about a new toy a month for the past year or so. And I'm actually exercising self-control!

    Everytime there is a threat to the second amendment I buy at least 2 guns I have to have... and I am not kidding.

    I feel your pain. I have always heard that one should use protection when engaging in risky behavior (like buying guns) so I started using gun socks but that doesn't work either. Could be the space between the knitting? Maybe long plastic bags might do it? Sorry guys none of these pups are available for adoption. :neener:

    Every time I don't buy cigarettes, I mentally put some of the money thus saved into the gun kitty.

    Good thing I don't smoke!

    Understand completely, everyone around me has told me I don't need another, and at my age I have much more than my peers, but there's just so many neat/cool/fun guns out there, and I don't think think they're gonna get any cheaper.

    Help naw, pics, yes please.

    I have been having the same problem. I am kind of worried though. My AR-15 is spending a little more time than usual with my P3AT :]

    Well, I don't think my collection's expanded any since last Xmas...

    ...But I still get nervous about closing the gun safe with more than one AK or AR in it... I keep telling them not to do anything I wouldn't do, but...
