    What’s a big gun collection?

    Curious to know what INGO thinks is a “big” gun collection. When the media says a guy has an arsenal with 5+ guns, what do people who know about guns think is a large collection???

    If I think big firearm collection, I'm thinking over 100+ and that doesn't count wall hangers either

    About 100 million Americans (30% of U.S. population) own about 400 million firearms. So the mean is about four firearms per owner.

    I would suggest that double the mean is what the populace at-large would find to a large collection. So my answer is eight.

    But you are asking on a site where all participants self-select on the basis of interest in firearms, so the mean here is likely to be quite a bit higher.

    Let's see..... A collection is smaller than an arsenal. MSM tells us 5+ is an arsenal. So a collection must be 2+????

    When you can’t answer how many you have without looking at your log or spreadsheet. Wherever you keep your list. That is when you know you have a “big” collection.

    Some poor fellow at a soiree stated he had TWO guns! And was excited about it. I said "Really?!? Me too!". He said. "What kind?". And I replied. "What do you want?". The wife said "Shuddup,. axxhole..".... She wasn't wrong.
    To sort of make it up I did a little oohing and ahhing over his trade in G22..

    But yeah. I need a list to know for sure.

    I have been told that I am just an accumulator, not a collector, because I just buy one of everything instead of obtaining all of the variations of a particular model.

    With that in mind:

    2+ of one particular model = Collection
    5+ = Arsenal
    One of everything = Accumulation

    If they ask how many guns, say 'weapons'. If they say weapons, say 'firearms'. If they say firearms, say 'tool'. If they say tool, say 'art' and so on.

    So, I don't know what you all are talking about...

    It depends on the source asking the question.

    MSM...….2 guns and over 100 rounds.
