    @CTDolan , the list of firearms I have owned would be too long, so I will just give you the numbers

    25 Pistols
    16 Revolvers
    14 Rifles
    7 Shotguns

    Actually I just own two rifles.

    Wow... I honestly am not sure I could list everything even if I tried..

    Im currently sitting on about 50 firearms between mine and my wifes collection.. but.. over the years I have horse traded so much stuff, I dont think I could possibly remember them all.. my guess is the total number owned at one time or another is probably north of 250-300 though..

    a few things I look back and regret ever letting go include

    An all original, pristine condition Remington Rand 1911 built in either 1942 or 1943
    An all original, pristine condition (unissued) M1 Carbine made by Singer Sewing Machine in WWII (unknown date)
    A mid 1950's Ithaca Model 37
    A mid 1930's Browning A5
    An old, beater, horrible condition 6.5 carcano carbine.. no real material value.. but huge sentimental value.. it was my dads first "deer" rifle..
    An old, beater, horrible condition stevens 12ga pump purchased new in 1967.. no real material value.. but huge sentimental value.. it was my dads first "hunting" shotgun..


    Pretty much everything else that has come and gone over the years could easily be bought again if I would put the time in to search, and wanted to spend the money... most of the guns were "common".. rem 700's, AR15's, S&W revolvers, Glock pistols, etc..etc.. but those 6 in particular were all exquisitely built and were in phenomenal shape or should have ended up as family heirlooms.. and I either let someone else that wanted them even more than I did talk me out of them.. or I was just young and dumb and didnt appreciate what I actually had in the collection at the time...

    I think I paid $100 for the 1911 at a gun show in Memphis in the early 90's... a guy was walking around with it in his hand wanting to offload it so that he could afford to buy one of those new fangled Gen 1 Glocks :)

    Well I’m putting a lot of serious thought into my purchases. I’m on the fence right now over a Lorcin 380. It’s a good deal and they are cool looking but I wouldn’t want fellow members of this website to think I was a Fancy Dan.

    We’ll add to this. I’ve got a Marlin M60 and a Winchester M67 that my grandfather left me that I need to put a refurbishing on. I’ve also got a CVA .50cal blackpowder rifle for our two-week deer muzzleloader season. And a Smith and Wesson M&P-15 in (of course) 5.56mm.

    As for handguns, I’ve owned a couple but only currently own a Glock 17. I’ve also owned a Bersa in .380 ACP and a Diamondback DB9 in 9mm.

    Likewise. Just be sure to bolt it to the floor or a wall. I read somewhere that some enterprising tangoes used a bunch of golf balls roll a heavy safe away.
