    Two (centerfire) for me, my CZ-75 and CZ RAMI, both 9mm's. I also have several .22's that I plink with, but you weren't asking about that.

    2 to 3 at a time

    each week I bring 2 to 3 different handguns , either my 2 buckmarks, 2 PA 63's, cz 82, firestorm 380, sig p230, LCP, SR9, glock 27, or my S&W MP 45. Once a month I bring with AR 15 and the Mossberg 590.

    One, almost every time I shoot. Three or four, frequently.

    I've got a question about defense (and I've been out since 1971 so I'm sure things are a lot different). How do you carry for defense? If you live on base is it a hassle to coordinate with the armory to retrieve your guns? I guess if you live on base you just need to worry about state law. Of course, you might not want to answer

    Nowdays I am only dry fire practicing the Glock 23. For range activity I may take the P220 or the P232 along. These 2 are the only other pistols readily accessible since I got the G23. I keep the P220 close by should I need to bug out and I often times carry the P232 around the house.

    Since I drank the Kool-Aid I have been pretty faithful to my Glock but I do cheat with a Sig on occasion

    I have the same two Glocks and also bring along my Kel-Tec P3AT 380.

    That's it unless I want to go to the 22 range, then I bring along a Ruger 10-22 for pinking

    I don't own any guns that just take up space... If they were brought home that means I will shoot them and be comfortably proficient in them.

    Hmmm, My M642 snub but never with aimed fire. Point only. Lock my elbows into my sides and empty it rapid fire COM at a range of about 10 feet. That gun is mugger deterrence only. I can blow the center out of a target now in about 1.5 seconds for 5 rounds.

    My H&K P30 and my Sig P245 are both carry and IDPA pieces so I practice with them more tactically. Frequently I'll just practice tactical reloads with empty mags for speed and smoothness. The H&K's mag eject lever at the bottom rear of the trigger guard expedites this tremendously.

    When I pick up my new XD45 compact I'll familiarize myself with it to the extent that I can field strip it in total darkness and put it back together the same way. I'll learn the controls to load/reload and clear stoppages the same way. I'll do it enough to move it all into "muscle memory" as I have with the others. Then I'll take that to some IDPA matches to see where it prints on targets at most combat ranges and positions of fire with a variety of loads that I'll document so I know where my carry load will tend to impact.

    All of them. I don't favor one of my children over another, they all get equal time, in rotation.

    Usually 3-4 guns go for each range trip... My Ultra Carry, either my G19 or 26, the XD45, then I'll rotate the CW9, S&W 27-2 or 642... The long guns usually get trips to themselves, so it's either handguns or long guns...

    Usually 2 to 3 unless I'm really focusing on something with 1 firearm.

    My current carry gun always. Then I add at least 2 others just for the fun of it.
