The 2 years since I've turned 21, I've purchased 8 guns. And I still haven't been hired into the field I went to school for. You can see where my money goes :-)

Too many? I don't understand. TOO many!? Nope -- not following.

As for "locks for the kids" instead of the guns, now why didn't I think of that? The old lady doesn't seem to mind one bit when we make a game of it, so...

I've bought 28 since September 2010. I've traded a couple away to get other guns I wanted more. Last week it was my RIA 1911 to get a SA Loaded. Sold five low end guns outright over the summer.

You can't buy too many guns. I've found you can buy too many calibers/gauges and that makes the ammo harder to keep up with.

I bought my first gun (rem870) last august and its been down hill from there. Got a mosin a month later then went dry when I was told no.more but I don't listen. Bought a Romanian ak this summer and then when I turned 21 I got a s&w sd9 while also getting a super blackhawk from my pap. Last month I got a browning auto5 in a trade and built an ar15 last week. I'm happy with my purchases though

Bought my first one, a Marlin 60, in 1981 and I still have it. Moved into double-digit ownership by 1986 when I was 21. Haven't sold or traded off a single one. I have more guns than I really need but not nearly as many as I plan on owning.

Bought my first gun 4 years ago. Have about 15 now. It sure seems like every time I cross one of the list, three more candidates emerge.

You seem to be right on schedule.

Yeah, I actually got that feeling on Friday. I buy pretty much all my guns from Bud's because they're normally the best price and I can buy them on layaway. So I tend to get a gun, pay it off over 90 days, and once it's paid off I feel like I can get another gun. However, Friday I was picking up two transfers. I broke the rules and put two guns on layaway at the same time since I wanted them both so badly. And then while I was picking them up at my LGS they had another gun that I really wanted, and for a great price. I damn near bought it.

I certainly have a problem here. Still, I don't plan to do anything about it.
