Default How many guns do you have?


I just started getting into guns in 2005 when I bought my first pistol. Since then, I've been consumed with an interest in hunting and have slowly but surely been building my hunting/personal defense arsenal. Guns aren't cheap, however, and I've spend thousands of dollars already and I only havefive guns (I had six but just soldthe first pistol I had ever purchased).

Anyway, I'm interested in arriving at an average number of firearms typically owned by people, like us, that frequent hunting forums.As itlooks from other questions Ihave posted hereand in other forums, I have about1/3 of what most respondents are claiming. This helps me with my wife!

Id rather have 6 reliable guns w/ a couple thousand rounds each, than 20 with only a couple hundred rounds each.

In other words, buy more ammo, not more guns, cause a gun without bullets is just an expensive club.

aint that the truth

The best guns (imo) are the ones that are handed down from generations of family. I have a handful of these, and they all tell a story. As far as a number, liberty I really don't know....a handful or two I guess.

Yeah, a buddy of mine is definitely in the 21+ category. We went to the range together a few months ago, and two of his guns wouldn't even fire. He just loves buying new guns and would rather have many low quality ones than a few reliable firearms that will last for years/generations.

More than I actually need to hunt with, but several less than I would like to have...currently in the market for an AR-15 (not sure which brand), a pair of Glock 26s for CCW, a muzzleloader for my wife (probably a CVA Wolf like mine...no complaints), and a Henry Cricket .22 LR to start my son out on...will have to follow that with a Ruger M77 Compact in .243...
