    Firearms personally owned, including revolvers, pistols, rifles, shotguns and black powder pistols and rifles. I think a current estimate of the number of firearms in the U.S. is around 250 million or so. Then it occurred to me that many people own more than one firearm for sport, hunting, competition, etc. I realize other folks have gun collections, gun shops, etc. so I am referring here to what you personally own and have at home or in your car and are in firing condition, so that would leave out my old Sharps.

    I waited to take this poll. I put number 11 in my safe last weekend. It's purchase number 17 but the question was "currently own".

    I have sold 3
    I have given 3 as gifts.

    I don't own nearly enough. I want another shotgun, an M4gery, a match M16, a Garand, a couple more Mosins, a Sig P226 Navy, a Sig P226 Equinox, a couple HKs (especially an MP5), a Sig 556, a Sig 1911, a Kimber Custom of some sort, a FiveseveN, and a couple other assorted subguns and rifles.

    Damnit, didn't read the poll and thought my original answer for handguns had somehow dropped, so I reanswered with that answer. Oh well.

    Personally, I think there is no such thing as too much provided you can store them.

    For example, lets say you had 100 guns, but you only used 1 or 2 regularly (the handguns you carry) and have one or two rifles out at all times (HD guns). Are the other 96 a waste?

    I think not. Unless you need to sell them for food, what's the harm in a little surplus? :lol:

    Exactly, I have more of a collectors mindset myself.
