    Just out of curiosity, I'd like to take a poll to see how many handguns you own. I just bought my 11th this past Friday and I'm wondering where I fit on the curve.

    21 handguns, 5 shotguns and 4 rifles. Kind of a waste, but with California laws, it's a PITA to sell any of them. I also just can't part with most of them, because they have served me so well in the past.

    My wife said I can get a new firearm every year for my birthday. I have her convinced I'm 104.

    Well Edward, you are on your way. 11 is a nice "starter kit". Sounds like you already have "the affliction". It gets a lot worse.

    I purchased my first, and currently only handgun, a Kimber Warrior earlier this year, on my 21st birthday. More to come when finances allow because I find myself stricken with a severe case of 1911 fever.

    Bought my first one 18 months ago. My count is at 4:

    CZ 75b
    Sig P226
    XD 45 compact
    XDm 45

    And of course the to-do list remains long...1911(s), revolvers, a Buckmark, and so on. I have a funny feeling there'll be a few more CZs in my future as well.

    What does THAT mean?

    I'd have more but I'd have to use the one gun I have to rob a bank to get the money to buy more. :D


    Actually, I should get a return on my income tax this year and I hope to be able to buy some sort of .22 pistol or revolver for cheaper shooting.

    I don't count my firearms because if I did, I surely would not have enough and have to buy more. Like I need another excuse to buy firearms.
