The proper number is one more than you have at any given time. If you get another, the proper number goes up by 1, etc...
Rule of thumb! You need 1,000 rounds stored for each AR for SHTF time. So went you build an AR do you add 1,000 rounds of ammo to the stockpile?
It is kinda like having a pair of shoes without a dress for them! Thats what "She Who Must Be Obeyed" told me about her clothing.
Now if they just made High Heels for Body Armor I could talk her into a set of body armor her and a set for me!
@ OP -Good Question... I guess it comes down to 'wants' and 'needs'....................................
I gave a silly answer earlier, and my wife knows how many I have (in fact, she has at times suggested I buy the new "XXXX" I've had my eye on), but if they all look alike.............. :rofl:
But........full spousal disclosure!
Guns are like sex- oh, never mind.
As of now ammo is hard to find here in colo, I do have about 12k in 223/5.56 a little over a thousand in 6.8 500 or so 300 blackout so yeah Amos covered, I just tend to buy and hunt down brass at the range ill spend an entire day loading
I'd say it's a good start.. But only a start..
jbon, my son...........
But I'm here to help you out of you're self- iinflicted sticky-wicket.
Tell her she is right. Tell her you are going to sell some to some "good friends".
Tell her you are going to reinvest the money you make from the sale of each firearm into your 401k(you do have one right).
Then you sell one, or just show her a "stack of 100's"; two 100 dollar bills wadded up with singles stashed in the middle to look huge.
Then the money goes into the 401k..........wink, wink.
And, that you are a great guy, and so and so who buys all of your firearms ,has no safe, you are storing them for him.
You owe me a beer next time I'm in Colorado.
An EX BIL once asked "How many guns does a man really need?" My reply, "Just one more!"
My wife cares less about how many guns I have or buy. I need to qualify that statement; as long as it does not impact her ability to buy more shoes, cloths and jewelry. She has more pairs of shoes than I have guns. Whoops, left out the gifts for the grand kids.
When you need an addition on the house to hold them you many at the limit
It depends on if you are asking how many or how many she knows about....
