    Too many guns?

    Just a quick question for the group. I live in Portland (not in a bad area) and started carrying a Kahr PM9 for my CCW of choice. I like to go to the range and shoot, but need a better "range gun", so I am going to purchase a nice Kimber .45 for target and home defense. I also ordered the Ruger LCP .380 for pocket carry. I think I might be "overloaded". Should I sell my Kahr PM9 and just have the Ruger for CCW and the Kimber for home/range use? Or, is there a good reason to keep the Kahr (maybe another place in the house? Maybe a backup in the car?). Suggestions? Thanks...

    Really. You can't have too many guns.

    So, uh, er, if you are looking for a Glock, I just happen to have one for sale.

    I am not certain there is such a thing as too many guns. If there is, I am certain it is not 3!!!!!

    If something happend God Forbid, you'd loose your primary for a while. Or one of your other firearms breaks and has to spend time with a gunsmith you are down to two.

    The long and short is there isn't too many as long as you can afford another.

    Good points! I didn't think about the fact that I might have one being fixed. Thanks for the quick replies! I'll keep the Kahr as a backup (and maybe use it as primary CCW in rough areas and also carry the Ruger LCP as a BUG). I'm sure I'll post more later that says "So... Is 5 too many". LOL!

    Right now I have 2 handguns, 3 shotguns, and a 22 rifle. There are 3 more handguns that I want to get. I would like to get an AR, and a good hunting rifle. After I get all of those I'm sure there will be something else I will want. So you can never have too many guns.

    Never too many guns. Never.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    You definitely don't have too many. Three is just a starting collection.

    The more options the better. Having to many or too much is a myth.

    I'd keep them all, if anything it's fun just to rotate on occasion.
