    You NEED 2 pistols for starters, reason being if some one breaks into your home or if you have to use your carry, then it becomes the property of the police department( probably with some guys initials scratched in the side for ID marks) 2 so as you are handing the one you used over, you are sliding # 2 in your holster. Now as far as wants, I want everyone I don't have and have 2 or more of some I got. Clear as mud right!!!

    Guns? What guns? I used to have guns, but they all seem to have gotten lost in a boating accident!

    At least enough to open a gun museum when you retire.

    Lets see, I could probably get by with 5, so I suppose 5 is my "need" number. Those would be:

    1- A .22 LR rifle, I'd be hard pressed to choose between a 10/22 w/ a threaded barrel or a Savage Mk II FV-SR with a Boyd's Stock. Either way it has to be threaded for a can.

    2- A 5.56mm rifle, preferably a SBR, either an AR platform or SIG 556

    3- A home defense/competition handgun, my choice is a Glock 21SF RTF2 with night sights and a aftermarket barrel for use with lead bullet handloads

    4- A .38/.357 Revolver, I'd go with a Ruger SP101 DAO 2 1/4" .357

    5- A .308 or .30-06 rifle, I'd probably go with a Garand so it could take on a defensive role if necessary, and because I love the Garand.

    One will note I don't list a shotgun. I'm not really a shotgun guy, and while I would have one in my top ten, in the top five the shotgun, and pocket gun, get bumped.

    As for what I have, a lot more than five. What I want, a lot fewer than what I have.

    How many do I need?

    Two handguns, a shotgun, and an AR-15.

    How many do I want?

    As many as I am legally and financially able to own!

    How many do I have?

    Five Handguns and Five Long Guns.

    As many as I want to, enough to satisfy my hobby, enough for now

    As long as I play nice, I have a nice collection. If things go bad, it might be said that I have an "arsenal". Either way, there are quite a few more that I would like to have.

    + 1 Here that is classified information. But if I win the lottery or a contest to win one it will welcomed with open arms to the family. But right now I have enough firearms to cover everything I need or do. Stay safe and carry on.

    I don't have any but I want 1 maybe 2, I know from reading the news that I should have 1 but if I had 1 someone would just want it so why bother. Right now I'm wanting a weapon that shoots 7.62X25 more than I want any other of the weapons that my friends let me keep for them; when they go out of town sometimes I shoot them and fondle them more than I should but then I have to give em back and I'm without a gun again. Its a lonely way of life but when they come to take my guns I won't have any.

    If you know how many you have without having to stop and count them, you don't have enough.
    Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
    No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.


    Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
