I'm just curious as to how many weapons you folks own and how old you are.  Is the number of weapons a person owns directly proportional to their age?? You dont necessarily have to name each of your weapons (you know, in case an ATF a**hole is reading).  For the record, I am 27 and own 2 rifles(3 if you count the AR on layaway) and 2 handguns.

PRE-BAN: Twenty-five AK-type weapons; Eleven AR-types (8 Colts and 3 Bushmasters; Three SA FN-FALs in .308;

POST BAN: One SA FN-FAL-type in .223 (SAR-4800)
with USA parts confguration (only way I'd have it)!

And I only own TWO handguns!

BTW, I'm 48, and I bought my first AR-15 in Shreveport in 1972 for the unbelievable sum of $395.00.  Of course, I was only making $1.60 an hour back then, so do the math.

I know one guy in his 60's. He has a whole walk in gun room. He has so many, most in original boxes, that he forgets what he has. But he does have some gems I would love to get my hands on. I would say he has close to 500.

1 rifle, 1 on the way, 2 pistols.  Age 25

3 WEOPONS-AR, CCW handgun and an 870 closet shotgun.

Rifles-11(I collect Ruger No.1 falling blocks.)
Handguns-9(5 of which make up my Mark II Ruger collection)
Reloading presses-3

I have sold more than I own. I feel I have a good job as far as income goes. I probably spend 25% of my annual salery on shooting related equipment. It's pretty much my life. Hey, some people spend $$$thousands$$$ on a new car. I just got back a $4,200 income tax refund, every dollar went towards firearms.

Being un-married and child-less helps. I doubt I'd be able to do it if I had others to take care of.

Thanks for asking, though.

A few mid-range nuclear tipped missiles and a Romanian .22 trainer w/ broken magazine. Oh, and one of those guns that shoot those little colored plastic discs. I am 18.

I'm twice the age of all and half the age of many.  Play a game in Las Vegas, multiply that by another game and divide by my age. That will be the number of firearms have I.

Man I'm feeling very inadequate about the number of guns I own, but after i graduate and get a real job I should be able to remedy the situation.  On my list to buy are:
Barret .50 cal
Taurus Raging Bull in 454 casull
fully automatic, authentic HK MP5
Couple more AR's w/ at least one being full auto
that should do it for now. Later

Once when I was at the local gun store the owner told me a good rule of thumb was one gun for each year of your age. I'm 33 and I still need 8 more guns to catch up. The only problem is it seems like the years are passing too fast for me to ever get any closer. So if anyone has any old preban ARs, AKs or maybe a FAL they don't want any more, just send them to me to help me out. Thanks!   [:)]

As you can see I own seven Deleted weapons. But, it could be more, or it could be less...

As far as my age, and the true inventory...In all honesty, and with all due respect:


Now, go back to your Mr. Rogers program, and leave the adults alone.

And!! Have a very "Million Mom March" day!

My weapons are too numerous to mention but I always carry a 2LB hammer and a 15" adjustable wrench. The 3 foot section of pitchfork handle is for knocking the mud off my mud-flaps. The 4 ft steel pry bar with the pointed end is useful for aligning pin holes. And I occasionally carry a chainsaw.
