The only thing my first wife ever listened to me about, and remembered, was when I stated what were the only guns a person would NEED. She would quote me every time I got a new one... Here was my list. An accurate, scoped, bolt action .30-06, a good pump action 12 gauge with interchangeable chokes, an accurate repeating .22 rifle, and an accurate 1911A1 in .45acp. That is really all anyone might NEED but I would have to add a nice accurate .22 handgun. Don't get me wrong, I've got lots more than that now but for younger financially strapped individuals they must have a priority list to start their accumulation. Does anyone have anything to add that I may have missed?
