    Post the answer to my question and then pose your own gun-related question in the same format (HDYKW...?).



    How do you know when....you have too many guns?

    When you find yourself saying, "Hey! I forgot I had that!".

    Lately the only reason the collection hasn't grown is I haven't come across anything I really want. I broke that dry streak last month though, I have a Ruger Vaquero on order :D

    edit: I should add that my father in law recently had to buy a gun safe just for his pieces that he doesn't shoot. Still doesn't qualify as 'to many guns' though *grin*

    When your friend arrives at your door his tac vest, with his rifle, shotgun & pistol, sporting a massive grin and is shouting "They're HERE!!! They're ACTUALLY HERE!!!

    HDYKW....it's time to reload?

    When you have to take out a second mortgage to replenish your supply of .45ACP.

    HDYK when you're addicted to revolvers? Well let's see, there are several aspects of the question that simply must be defined first. What is an addiction? Who defines "addiction". And no Sarah, we won't be defining "revolver" for you, the answer would damage you.

    But, just for purposes of this discussion, let's just say that if you have more revolvers than long guns, you may have a problem.

    Now then: How do you know when you cannot buy a safe that's big enough?

    Because anything large enough to contain an ICBM isn't a safe, it's a silo.

    HDYKW...it's time to stop reloading you own ammo?

    Temporarily, it's because you just ran out of brass, bullets, powder, or primers. :neener:

    HDYKW... it's time to sell a gun?

    Oh, now that's easy, it's time for a larger safe when you have calculated the square footage require for access with a full length rifle and factored in door swing, and discovered that you need a larger safes in the middle isle, as the smaller models are just not an efficient use of space anymore.

    Or you go to close the door and have to use a come-along to get the last inch.
    Or you can't open it without something falling out and injuring you like JellyJar's bedroom...

    How do you know it's time to give up on safes and go all in for a gunroom addition to your house? (man cave included, ok so it could be a woman cave so long as it's not in pink)

    When you run out of room.

    How do you know when we've run out of dumb topics to talk about on this forum?
    Oh, wait! You start this thread.

    You know you have too many guns if guns are actually the reason behind your financial problems. You know that I'm right when you end up selling most of them and you are BARELY financial stable, but only because you sold them. Don't ask how I know :(

    When it takes you longer to find everything you need to change your set-up than it does to crank out 1,000 rounds.

    HDYKW....you should change your 'concealment' wardrobe?

    When you're feeling both suicidal and cowardly

    Sorry, I don't understand the question.

    HDYKW... you're no longer a newbie - you're just a lousy shot?
