    I don't "need" any guns. I got along most of my life without having any. It's a hobby that I finally have time to enjoy. Ask a stamp collector how many stamps they really "need". I don't have a lot of guns. Just a couple of plinkers. The sailboat accident claimed the majority of my collection.

    I buy guns all the time. As far the the number of guns I have, let's just say you'll need a lot more than your fingers and toes to count them all. I've gotten very creative explaining new guns to my wife. It generally goes "honey, I've had this gun for years, you just don't remember" or "I traded that old handgun for it and it only costs me $50 difference". I used to be such an honest man.

    Perhaps a name change is in order!

    Several thousand would do me just fine. Or just two of each make and model.

    Were my wife ever feeble minded enough to ask that question,(how many guns do you need), the answer would be`"one is not enough, and 400 is too many".
    Translation; somewhere in between.

    I was like really? I think they're multiplying in there in the dark.

    16 at present. I can only think of one that I have not bought and I think I want. A good short barrel defensive shot gun. Maybe a pump action. I just don't want it bad enough to go out and get it yet.

    Some guns like 1911s and snubbys are communal critters, you just cannot have only one.

    I have mine listed in an Excel spreadsheet with serial numbers, date I bought it, and price paid with a grand total invested.
