    Remington 1100 12ga.

    But I want a Saiga 12. Gotta get me one of those with a 24" barrel and removable chokes. That would be cool.

    Interesting results so far. A lot more folks have participated than I imagined.

    I am down to about 14 that I can think of, but they don't eat much or complain so I don't mind them staying here. If I looked there might be a couple more but I am not really worried about it.

    a couple O/Us
    a SxS
    a semi
    and almost a dozen pumps, mostly 870s

    The scary thing is that when I see a beat up old 870 for a good price I think "that's a really good price," and not "I probably have enough of those now."

    ONly one but that may change. I have a mossy 590-a1 which is great with the slugs at the range. As accurate as all get out. I would love to fire some buck shot thru it but the indoor range obviously wont allow it. I would invest in an over and under for skeet or trap if need be, perhaps a red label.

    Three, but I only bought one of 'em.

    Winchester 1200 12ga pump. My HS graduation present from my dad. Well broke in when I bought it, talk about a slick action!

    Remington 1100 12ga. Borrowed it from my grandfather when I joined a trap league. Made in their first year of production, and I was the first person to shoot it. 30" barrel with full choke. I bought a 28" skeet barrel for it last year to get me through my senior year of college. Given to me last year.

    SKB 85TSS. 12 O/U, sporting clays model. Bought it on August 7 (an unfortunate coincidence that I bought a Japanese gun on the 60th anniversary of Hiroshima!). 2600 rounds since I bought it in '05. My favorite gun by far! I'm a fan of long barrels on a heavy gun, keeps my swing "honest" and harder to stop in mid air.

    SShooterZ.... That's a collection to be proud of! My complements

    I own 4:
    Browning A5
    Winchester 101
    Beretta AL391 Urika
    Browning Citori 525 Sporting

    I think I need a Model 12, Model 31 and maybe even an 870. Oh, and a SxS. If I get another chance at a BT-99 I'll jump on that too.

    I'm really having to deal with the problem of only owning 12 gauges. I used to blow the wind up the skirt of a friend of mine that had a 28 gauge. Now I want one, but I'd have to go back to him and eat some crow.

    Like HSMITH - Around 14 or so.

    My collection is pretty diverse and includes 12ga, 20ga, 28ga, 16ga and .410. About half are pumps, although there are several autoloaders and the two O/Us get shot more than anything else. The oldest of the bunch was made in 1922, while the youngest was purchased new last year. I try pretty hard to hunt and/or target shoot with all of them over the course of the year.

    It's like a carpenter's toolbox. While there is some overlap there are times when each one is just perfect for the task at hand. It's funny... probably one of the most versatile guns in the inventory is a 20ga Benelli M1 Field... and it gets shot the least. I think it's because there are other guns which do specific things better and I've got a wide enough selection to choose something else.

    3 at the moment - 12ga hd 870, 12ga gp 870, h&r 20 single. Hope to add a 1100 lt20 and another single shot before the end of the year.

    Got enough that I've given some older ones away to my friends. I had an 1100, single shot 12 & 20, bolt 16 gauge. Gave them to guys for their kids to hunt with but couldn't afford to buy them guns. Still have some various old beaters, and my "real" ones are

    Weatherby Orion II for clays
    870 3" for deer, ducks
    SP-10 10 gauge for turkeys, geese, and varmints (two and four legged)

    for some reason, I just don't get the urge to have multiples of one gauge. In rifles and pistols I've got a variety of calibers, but having three different pump 12's doesn't appeal to me
