This is a discussion on How Much Money to You Spend on Hanguns and Related Items Yearly? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by Eaglebeak OK, so my firearms and ammo purchases force me to live in a hovel, eat roadkill, and do my shopping from ...
More than I had budgeted to spend and less than I wish I could spend.
At least one new gun a year and lots of ammo.
Far less then sitting in a bar buying drinks for the ladies and buddies, or what my buddies spend on cigerattes at $6 something a pack.
NO opportunity to cause disconnent at home. She shoots with me.
Hmmmm . . . What ever I told my wife the last time she asked.

This year well over 6 grand been a good year and safe is full.
However the clamps have been applied and I,will comply.
Enough that if my wife found out I'd need those guns for self-defense inside the house. That being said, not as much as I need to.

No way I'd answer this and leave a printed trail for my wife to follow. But lets just say she thinks I give A LOT to charity each year.
I don't think I want to add it up. This year was really high, my wife and I bought memberships for training. After the training I decided to get certificates for my children and their spouses (5) for handgun training. If you are going to carry a gun get professional training. I did not know how much I did not know, both physical and mental.
My youngest will be 21 the end of Jan, I have about a $1000 budget to get him outfitted with gun, holster, and belt. I may end up going over a little, but I think it is a good investment.
It varies from year to year. I started off this year not thinking I was going to buy anything.
Well that is what I get for thinking I guess. I ended up getting my son a pistol and rifle, and myself a pistol and rifle and the wife a pistol.
With ammo, reloading supplies, a few BB guns for Hunter Education classes, some optics etc. I guess I am over 3k this year.
I don't plan on getting anything next year thought. Well maybe if I see a deal or something I just gotta have.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Between training gear and guns along with parts and keeping up with new technology and parts I'd say about 5-6k a year. If I could roughly estimate.
I picked 1000 to 2000 because I am waiting for the year to reset on New Years before buying the next handgun I want.
