    Please. I've been in the ATF Tracing Center in Martinsburg, WV several times and had the fun times of being able to peruse the weapons stored in their library. Over 15,00 if I recall correctly. In there is a gold plated Ak inscribed as a gift from Saddam. All kinds of pics on Google. All of these weapons can be picked up and examined by anyone coming in there. Of course clearance is needed to come in as it is not just open to the public. If this link does not work just Google it. https://twitter.com/atfhq/status/863063858361098241

    Depends on where you are. In many anti-gun locals an arsenal is any number of guns more than what the department issues their officers. So considering most local departments issue one maybe two handguns, a shotgun, and maybe a tactical rifle anything over four would be considered an arsenal by their standards. In my neck of the woods with four you have shown a mild interest in the subject. You are not considered serious until you reach at least 10 with a minimum of 300 rounds for each caliber or gauge.

    We never got past "many" back in my day. Us jarheads abide by the KISS principle. By necessity.

    I recognized that photo, just went there in September. The Arsenal was an awesome building.
    Yes that is an arsenal, the other just a small collection by Texas standards.

    Well, as I have never counted, or listed the contents of my safe? The best statement would be a bunch? Mostly self-loading pistols.
    Rifles, an AUG and an AK47. The AUG as it came. The AK47, modified, re collapsible stock.

    The one bit of advice I will give. When a child is in the news, shot his little brother? With a loaded gun, left in a place that is not secure!!
    DON'T DO IT!

    "Arsenal" is relative to one's political leanings. As one moves further left on the spectrum, the number of firearms it takes to constitute an arsenal decreases. For the extreme left, they might consider a single firearm to be an arsenal.

    It tickles me, to listen to Democrats bleat on about Gun Control, and they will not go anywhere minus bodyguards (who ain't carrying 5 shot revolvers!)

    Four guns does not make an arsenal.

    A very liberal co-worker asked me why anyone would need more than one gun. I had to explain to her that each type of gun, and caliber, had very different purposes.

    You need to have a gun for various hunting types:
    - grouse/pheasant
    - geese
    - duck
    - whitetail deer
    - small critters (varmint was not a term they understood)
    - big game rifle
    - safari rifle (for the African hunts - giant brown bears)
    - self defense guns
    - hunting/trail handguns
    - fancy gun to wear and show off

    Most importantly, you should always have a backup gun for any task you use a gun regularly for as well. I stressed the importance of that.

    She thought I was insane. I did mention that guns were like shoes, because it was a female co-worker, and she still didn't get it.

    Needless to say, the typical gun closet/cabinet/safe most hunters have would scare the pants off of liberals. Mine is no exception.
