I think my next gun is going to be the 20mm Sniper Cannon Rifle.

Well, I USED to have a few, but there was this terrible accident..........

Deep water, too. REALLY deep. Think there were sharks there, too. And several of the other folks here were on the boat with me that day.

I have always been careful not to stockpile weapons.

It makes sense to have one of everything that you might ever need (not want -- wanting is unlimited).

So a 22LR handgun (either revolver or semiauto pistol), a 22LR rifle, a HD handgun of any kind which you are comfortable shooting, one for your wife/sweetie, a hunting handgun, a hunting and/or HD shotgun, a scoped hunting rifle, these all make perfect sense. That equals about 7. If your wife/sweetie also hunts, then 8.

A gunsafe makes perfect sense also. That is the first thing everyone should get. It can keep your cameras, optics, wife's jewelry, papers, cash on hand, laptop PC's, all safe as well.

A small steel gunbox for your car also makes sense, especially if you carry (CCW, LTC). Then you can safely leave your handgun (pistol or revolver) in your car while you go to work.

My favorite of all these is actually the gunsafe.

But my favorite firearm is without a doubt the 10 + 1 single-and-double action semi-auto 45ACP and 5 magazines that go with it, which are my HD and SD.

I do stockpile ammo though. And also money in the bank, I stockpile that too. Its called saving for a rainy day. Stockpiling ammo and money makes perfect sense.

We were taking a cruise. Shihan was driving I think. Can't remember much about that fateful day. C3 is right, there were sharks. Fast currents. It all happened so quickly.

All the beer and eggs gave Shi BAD gas. He got to near the grill happening to rip a big un. It casued a hole to be blown through the Hull. She went down fast. Shi and his gas saved us though by killing every shark that got within 30' of him

Total? Maybe around 1k guns. No lives lost thankfully. Someone brought an oversized life jacket for an extra large member who decided not to go, that thing floated 6 of us to the beach.
