Im over that number and have never been a reckless spending buy it all kind of guy. It's been quite a long time since I bought one.
They just build up over the years. A few inheritances, a few for IDPA, a couple of carry guns, about a dozen just for cowboy action, some black powder
replicas for reenactments, post-AWB versions of my 3-gun gear for competitions in AWB states. AR variants alone add up quick between CMP, 3-gun,
hunting, pre and post AWB versions, varying calibers and barrel lengths, sure I guess you could just have one lower and keep switching uppers but when
a lower is a couple hundred bucks why not have a complete rifle?
It just sort of adds up.
ETA: Ive never sold one or traded one so once I get a hold of a gun it stays with me. Maybe that's why?
I have a history prof buddy who has two rooms of his home that are essentially vaults. He's well over 500 firearms I think. He doesnt have hardly any
ammo though. He rarely shoots. Just collects.
Oh, then you marry a shooter.
Moving around 800lb safes is not fun.
