    Here's a non-political topic (so Boomatic won't complain )......

    For financial reasons, I had to sell off all my guns a few years back. Now I'm rebuilding a collection of C&R firearms, as well as anything that catches my eye. I currently have 11 guns:

    10 long guns (3 semi-auto, 4 bolt action)
    1 handgun (semi-auto)

    And many more to come.

    What about y'all?

    Hmmmm, I already have a collector's license. Seems that would already cover it. Hadn't heard that one yet about the arsenal license. Although technically, shouldn't it be an armorer's license? An arsenal is where they manufacture/repair guns, not store them. Right?

    Also hadn't considered that you folks might not want to disclose what ya got, for fear of big brother. Ain't no use for me hiding them though, they can audit me any time and check my records.

    I can neither confirm nor deny the existance of firearms in my home. Around 156 of them.

    Let's see...in the past 30 days I have increased the number of guns in the collection by 600%

    Now THAT's not too many, is it?

    I've got one more than I need, but one less than I want!

    The ATF just raided a mini-storage unit south of me a few miles yesterday. Interesting find - flame throwers, bazookas, RPG's, rifle grenades, machine guns, military rifles from 1880's to today, mucho gusto ammunition, etc, etc,.

    The news media is having a field day.

    Well hmmm guns...

    More than my 16 rifle gun safe will hold, but less than the 30-40 rifle safe I'm going to be getting in a few months.

    But I can neither confirm or assertain (yeah I know I can't spell worth shite tonight) if any of the rifles in the safe work or not - especially if they are all put together or still torn down.

    However, wouldn't advise anybody trying to find out...

    Lets see - I don't own any firearms - they own me!

    If I was to take a different one out every day and shoot it, a year would go by before I started over again ----

    Seriously, I've lost count. I have two collections, one is for display, I think 15 or - in that one which is mostly nib or lnib factory chambered .284 Wins of various makes and models, and one for shooting, maybe another 15 or - of a variety of obscure hunting chamberings

    Upper left corner (barrel down) Coonan Cadet .357 semi-auto, lower left (bbl upward) Colt Commander in .38Super with LaserLyte trigger guard laser light, middle Bersa Thunderbolt .380, upper right EAA Witness .45ACP (which also has conversion shroud and bbl for .38Super, lower right Llama MiniMax .38Super with LaserLyte laser sight.

    I've got a few long guns too, somewhere 'round 15 or more.

    I only talk about guns...or want to talk about them .

    I would like to own 14 long guns and 19 handguns...but I don't and am too poor and...well...that would just be over indulgent. Yeah, that's it.

    SpanishBob's theoretical collection is obscene.

    Covet...covet...covet.
