    Wait a second........I have to go back to the first post.
    A "security team" with a P32 and a Glock 42????? There must be a "Gun-Free Zone" sign on the door. Pretty lame weapon choices for a "security team". I think you need to re-think your equipment choices to secure more than 8 feet around any team member!

    I dream of being able to buy lots more ammo for what I have.
    I carry the 26 at church most of the time. The P32 would be given to someone who it isn't practical to conceal a bigger gun . I am close to having enough rounds through the 29 to put it in concealed carry duty

    By the way I can keep all the rounds out of that G42 on a 6 inch paper plate at 75 ft all day long . I can keep 99% of them on a 9 in plate at that distance with the the p32.
    Just because you can't shoot doesn't mean I can't :rofl: just kidding

    No offense intended, but I would love to check your yardstick!

    I guess I’m different than most here in that I can relate to the OP. I have no desire to own one of everything, or have multiple massive safes stuffed to the gills. If I never bought another gun in my life it’d be no cause for sadness and I actually have a few that I’ll probably move to new homes. I’ve owned lots of guns over the years, have sold a good many down the road when my interest waned and have never regretted a single sale. When I go to gun shows or my LGS’s there are very few weapons that move the needle for me, totally unlike years ago.

    These days I’ve kinda gone back to the basics, 9mm Glocks, .357 Ruger DA revolvers, 10/22’s a good match AR, a Tavor for up close, a spiffy new deer rifle and a nice O/U shotgun. These are the guns that I really use and enjoy. Not that I don’t have others, but they’re tending to become safe queens these days, and I was never one to abide many safe queens.

    Have had "what I need" for a long time. ...but there's always something interesting to consider.

    For some reason my want list just keeps growing as I acquire more guns. I guess it will stop growing----when I'm dead. "Need" just doesn't seem to fit in my firearms vocabulary.

    I have reached my limit as well. I own firearms for every intended use. So, moving on to "other things". There is fun and other challenges to be met. Sure, I will attempt to maintain firearms skills. Shooting will continue to be a part of my life.

    Right now I have my 'need list' filled. Working on getting debt free so I can start on my 'want list'. Don't think that list will ever be filled .
