I like to look back on the previous year and think about how many guns I bought/acquired....might make for some good conversation. So let's add some scoring to it (the higher the political incorrectness, the higher the score): 5 points for each full-auto firearm acquired in 2001. 4 points for each .50 BMG rifle acquired in 2001. 3 points for each semi-auto rifle/shotgun acquired in 2001. 2 points for each semi-auto pistol acquired in 2001. 1 point for each manual-loading (ie, bolt/lever/pump/revolving) firearm acquired in 2001. NEGATIVE points for anything you got rid of in 2001. I get 3 pts. for the AR I built with RRA Group Purchase lower receiver, built up with an Armalite parts kit, Armalite 24" bull barrel upper, Jewell trigger, Harris bipod, and Leopuld 4.5x14x50. 3 pts. for a CETME purchased through AIM, though it shoots WAAAAYYY left and I need to get off my butt and send back to Century for fixin'. 1 pt. for a Remington 870 12 gauge. 1 pt. for a Savage bolt rifle in .308, topped with a Tasco 3x9. 8 points total. I'm sure I'm about to get my ass kicked, but let's hear how you all did this year....

"4" Semi-auto M1A & 870HD But Christmas is coming and my wife has my wish list, so I think I will actually finish with a 7, another AR.

I like the point system, but it ought to give more points for evil prebans as opposed to neutered and slightly less evil postbans. Anyway, here goes . . . 1 BHP 2 1 BHP clone 2 1 22/45 2 1 CETME preban 3 1 DSA FAL (at least I think that was this year, maybe it was last year, I can't remember) 3 1 AR180 (also this year I think) 3 1 SAR-1 3 1 M4gery preban 3 1 Sig P245 2 1 Browning Special Trap 1 1 AR17 3 1 M1A 3 1 Makarov 2 I didn't get rid of any guns this year. I have a Vector Uzi on order, but that doesn't count until I have it in my hot little hands. Next year. But at between 26 and 32 points, I think I am doing OK. [8D]

Strange??, I only come up with 15--a Barrett M82, State Arms KC2000, Benelli M3, HK P7 K3, Colt Python, Smith 28. Of course, I also got a Vector UZI and an HK 53, but sold a pair of MAC's to raise a little money towards the purchase. I only had a small net gain in #'s, but cleaned up my collection considerably.

I'm not sure, I don't feel like doing the math right now. I know I've sold at least 11 guns this year so far to fund building a new house, but somehow I still have more firearms now than I did this time last year.[;)]

43 points, so far. There are a couple of weeks left in the year and I do have a pre-ban AR up for sale, but I'll probably pick up a SAR-1 or 3 at the gun show next weekend, so that's a wash, though I might trade the AR for a SAR-8, so I'd pcik up a few more points. Wonder if I can hit 50? And I am looking for an O/U to use for sporting clays, which might be a tad PC for this group [;)]

Well, 5 points. Pump shotgun Double barrel shotgun Bolt action rifle pistol Oh yeah, a new safe that cost more than all those put together.

16 points, but 2002 I hope to average 1 per month. 2 Ars = 6 2 FAls = 6 1 STI Edge = 2 1 Tec 9 = 2 Total is 16

Lets see...take the square root multiplied by pie (TT)divided by the inverse cosine divided by the sum of all items...12 points.

24 points, all from semi rifles. Gotta play catch up and beef up my collection!

If the next two sales go as planned, this is depressing: +HK91 +3 -HK93 -3 -HK P7M10 -2 (should be minus more, since I loved that gun) -HK91 -3 (sale pending) -SA TRP -2 (hoping to sell) _________ -7 Life suxs

Do they have to work to count? 3 - Marlin Model 60, I really feel guilty about taking three entire points for this cheap one. 1 - Bolt action Mosin Nagant M44 0 - Oly AR-15, the bolt won't close over an inserted mag 0 - Kel-Tec P-32 that needs a new barrel, frame, and several small parts. Pictures at [url]users.upstate.net/zoom/P-32/[/url] So, a total of four. That's not too bad considering I had a life-time score of 0 before this year.z

Nah, sold it at the beginning of this year. I'll let you know if I come across any good deals though.

11. I might hit 13 by the end of the year.

Colt AR-3 pts Baby Browning .25-2 pts Hi Standard H-D Military-2 pts total of 7, but hope to get my SAR before the end of year, would clear me 10 pts.

Two... The 20 guage shotgun I bought mainly for my wife to use for home defense, and the .22 lever I bought for my daughters Christmas present. Lesse... that makes 2 for the pump gun, and 2 for the lever - guess I'm at 4 points. Wopuld have been more (was going to purchase a 9mm 1911 style pistol, but the boss put the brakes on that by removing my source of income - oh, well) Nexy year should be better ... I aim to get a lever gun for myself for hunting, something else in 7.62x39, another pistol for the wife, and maybe another one for me... Good thing I'm not living in one of those 1 gun a moAristates. I'd have too much trouble keeping up.

Actually a pretty good year for gun purchases for me but still a slacker compared to most here. 13 total.

2 pre-ban semi-auto rifles 1 revolver Not bad for a 20-year-old college student.

Well, if we only assume things we have taken possesion of (awaiting FA transfer), not a big year for me. Total = 8 or 13 if suppressors count for 5 If we add in paid for but not in our hot little hand still small Total = 13 or 23 if suppressors count for 5 How about another thread for total points!!! Might be interesting to see. James

Congrats to DavidC and others...if we get some more contributions I'll tally the top 10. The fact that the #5 guy got three times as high a score as me makes me want to reassess my resolutions for next year!
