I have a rifle (SKS) as my zombie gun. When the SHTF, I will use this to defend my home and family.
I have a shotgun (12g Mossberg pump) for home defense in the bedroom.
I have a SIG P2022 .40 cal. for EDC and home defense (on me all the time).
The wife has a .38 Special for EDC and home defense (on her all the time).
The boy has a .22 for learning the basics (in his room - no ammo).
That's my minimum and where I'm at right now. New guns will be aquired as needed or for fun, but right now, I'm set and satisfied.
What, you think there is some kind of limit? Get real.
Six are vital (2 shotguns, 2 rifles, and 2 handguns).
Any number above six may not be vital, but is certainly necessary. In fact, whether you have one gun or 5000, all are necessary.
This is a Liberal-istic trick to find out about my excessive stash of weapons and ammunition. Pardon me will I wrap my head in heavy-duty tin foil and think about baseball. :blink:
Guns? Like access bob, all mine were lost in a boating accident. ;)
But those who do not share my passion and want to portray me as "evil" and "twisted" would that I not have such a collection simply because they consider them dangerous. They do not understand. And each time someone who has acquired a large number of guns goes off the deep end and shoots someone, it undermines my hobby. I wish that everyone could live in peace together, but the problem is that humans are involved and they have shortcomings and problems which spill over to others. It has been that way throughout time and will continue until the end of time. In the meantime, I am going to try to enjoy my chosen hobby and hope that it isn't curtailed by those, frankly I have to call them idiots, who don't understand that their Utopia will never exist even should they find some way to eliminate all guns.
Sorry, had to get that all off my chest.
"How many are necessary?" Does it really matter?
Not too long ago I didn't understand why someone would want a mess of guns. A couple of pistols, a shotgun, a rifle, that made sense to me. Then my son started collecting & had a different reason for wanting each one he has. Then I got my CWP and got my pistol. Now I consider it my first pistol because I want a backup. And I want to get a shotgun for home defense. And I want to get a rifle or two because I really love shooting them. And I want to get a 22 of some sort to start teaching my younger son how to shoot as well as the hubby. And I want to get a pistol customized like the top one in my avatar just because it is a sexy gun. And....and....and......
It all makes sense now!
However many it takes to get the job done!
Depends I guess, I'm a hunter & a gun guy. I know gun guys that don't hunt. I know hunters that own one shotgun or one rifle or one of both.
So when someone is a gun guy & a hunter, well you just can NEVER have enough guns!
When CC became law here in Kansas in '07 my hunting buddies & I didn't have to run out & buy "A" CC handgun, we already had 'em.
But....I'm proud to say we all "rushed out" & bought new CC handgun(s) anyway.
I have guns for carry and home defence. And others I use at our club shoots. But guns to guys are like jewelry and shoes to women. You can never have to many.
I have different hammers for different jobs.
I have different screwdrivers for different jobs.
I have different tools for different jobs.
Every so often, someone in my community of family, friends, neighbors or acquaintances comes to me and needs to borrow one of my tools.
We often use these tools to help make our community and our homes better and safer.
We use these tools to build our community.
I like knowing that I have tools that others can use to help make our community better and safer.
A gun is a tool, just like a hammer or a screwdriver is a tool.
One day, God forbid, the people in my community might need to protect what we built.
I like knowing that I have tools that could help us accomplish that task.
Lots of good answers here...some hilarious one too! Lmao!
