    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Agreed, do buy as many as you can afford. There is always the option of eating Ramen noodles for awhile...
    Unless you get a piece of poo gun, dont sell any.

    I'm in the same boat. I have a CW9 that I bought for CCW, and then decided I needed a XD9 service for range use. After carrying for a while, I realized that I need a smaller gun for those hot FL days when I really need to pocket carry something. So currently I'm in the market for either a Kahr 380 or an EMP.. or heck, maybe both. I don't get to shoot the XD9 as much as I would like, it just sits in my glovebox. I've been thinking about trading that in for a Springfield 1911 Champion, and just using the soon to be purchased EMP or Kahr 380 as my main carry and leave the CW9 in the car and use the 1911 as a house and range gun.


    I'm looking at $1000 for an EMP, $600 for a Kahr 380, $900 for a Champion 1911.
    Heavily armed.
    Collection: Kahr CW9, M&P 15-22, Walther P22, Glock 19.
    Sold: XD9 4'', Kimber 1911 Series II compact, FNP-9
    Shopping list: Springfield EMP 9mm, M&P 15 .223

    You kidding....right? You only sell a gun because you have shot it so far out of tolerance that you can replace it cheaper than to have this one fixed.

    Regret comes with each sale of a reliable handgun. Keep the one's you have as long as you can still afford food and shelter.

    Too many guns

    Guns are like toys, the one who dies with the most--wins:

    The only "real" issue I have is..... "hummm, which one do I carry today and goes best with this shirt".

    Even one is too many! Guns just encourage criminals! You're just contributing to the problem!



    In all seriousness, that's not a big number of guns at all. You may want to get a safe or gun cabinet at some point - but certainly don't worry about single-digit numbers of guns.

    A guy on a forum I'm a member of keeps several hundred AR-15 mags loaded and ready, and has many more magazines ready to go. That's the point at which you might start thinking "too much."

    Also, hello from a fellow Portlander.

    It's a disease and there is no cure! Must have more guns.

    Ok... Looks like I need to stand up and say "Hi... My name is Mike (everyone say "Hi Mike!"). I can't seem to stop buying guns. I have started with 3 and now I am purchasing a Kimber Custom II! LOL! Serious, I just put money down on a nice Kimber Custom II with a .22 conversion kit. I'm hooked! Thanks for all the posts on this too. I have a few ideas of what do do with each gun and which to carry based on situations (running down to 7-11, use the Ruger LCP); Riding the Harley, use an IWB and carry the Kahr PM9; Heading to the range, take the Kimber Custom II.

    I'm on my way folks!!! Welcome me into the fold... Thanks!

    Think first, act appropriately...

    I used to think I had too many guns. I wanted to be a "one gun man" but realized that whether a new gun would fill a certain purpose, I still wanted it. You can't escape it, so you might as well embrace it!

    I know what you mean, I've gotten on my wife when she's bought food, knowing darn good and well there's not an extra gun in the house!!!!
