Does your taste in firearms change often?
Does your taste in firearms change often? I think
that mine does. I seem to go through phases when
I like auto's more..then back to revolvers...then I
see a auto I really like at the gun store and it starts
Then I am always changing my mind about whether
I believe the shotgun is the best for HD when you could
argue that a good carbine could do the job just as well
with less recoil.
Guns...the debate is endless.
Lets not even start with calibers

No.....until I find something better than my Sig P220, my tastes will never change. And that probably will never happen.

I used to not like plastic guns. I would only own revolvers and 1911, then switched to the plastic ones.
I still like the look and feel of an all steel/wood gun, but like the practicality of the plastic ones for daily carry. And I found out that they shoot pretty well also.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

My taste in firearms has changed somewhat. I used to seriously dislike Glocks just because they look so plain and blocky. Now I don't really care about looks, given my first ever handgun was a Hi-Point, and I think we can all agree those are some of the ugliest handguns ever designed, however they do work, and are surprisingly accurate. I've always had a thing for "tactical" or military style firearms. I don't have any traditional wood and steel guns, they're all synthetics, polymers, and of course the color black (except for my S&W 642). I like pretty much anything that goes bang as long as it doesn't dislocate my shoulder or break my hand.

I used to be more into hunting - lever-action rifles and double-barrel shotguns. Now that I focus more on defensive weapons, I like Glocks and pump-action shotguns.

My taste in handguns varies from time to time but my opinion that a scatter gun is numero uno for HD hasn't ever faltered.

No...I pretty much stick to what works best for me.

I have two EDC's that are different. My Kimber Ultra and my Glock-36.
I like both of them, and switch back and forth for periods of time...I feel equally comfortable with either tucked IWB/SOB palm out draw over the kidney.

I have been really wanting to get a few more long guns. Maybe in the .223 flavor?

They are changing as I grow as a firearms enthusiast. For carry I started with a small semi auto, moved to a larger semi auto and now Ive gotten into the revolvers.
I think I can make all of them work for me in different carry situations.
But, Im a collector and Ive been buying a gun of some sort almost every other week for the last few months.

Mine changes every so often too. Right now I'm on revolvers, but feel a AR-15 bug coming on. Sometimes I only want auto's, then revolvers, then rifles, on and on.

I stay pretty consistent on EDC (G27). I bought a couple more pistols and got the itch for revolvers. Got a couple of those and now I'm getting the itch for a shotgun or rifle...so, I'm in the research stage and hope to buy one in the next few months. After that, I may crave an "Assault Weapon."

No my tastes never changed. I always pretty much liked 'em all and still do. (except for the ones made of plastic) I did once get rid of all my auto handguns except one (a 1911 .38 super with sentimental value) and got rid of all 9mm. I have since changed back and added two 1911 45s, a .40 cal, and a Sig 9mm just for good measure to keep me well rounded.
I will say that my idea of what makes a "complete collection" has steadily changed (and grown) over the years. Right now though, I think my collection is complete. I have one or two for pretty much every purpose I can imagine ever needing one for, unless I travel to Africa for buffalo or elephant hunting.(BTW: I'd like to get a Cape Buff one day, but don't really care to shoot an elephant)
In a few years I'll start working on completing my daughter's collection. She's already off to a good start. :-) and my wife's collection is complete.( for now)

No. A 9mm semi-auto pistol with exceptional reliability, balance and feel, of decent capacity; a short 12ga shotgun for flexibility; lever-action rifles for simplicity. That's been the basic mix for a long while. Each works well, and I'm comfortable with each.
