    How many firearms are within arms reach of you RIGHT NOW, including any that you are carrying?

    For me at my computer desk it is 5 (one shotgun, two rifles, and two pistols)

    Well I have firearms upstairs, main floor, desk, and downstairs. I don't wear any in the house, kind of uncomfortable while typing. :)

    I guess it would depend on your definition of "arms reach". Two I'd have to stand up to get, and another three I'd have to lean way over to the left, but there are currently 12 within 4 feet of me.
