    Are you sure that you are supporting Obama because he doesn't like people who own many guns because it scares him?

    He has NEVER said that he doesn't like people with guns, or that he wants to ban them. The people I DON'T like are the Glen Becks that say he is going to ban guns to win points. This agitates people and imo some like the Pittsburgh shooter take it seriously.

    I own 37 guns and I want more. I sleep with my 45 under my pillow. A gun is the swiftest justice of all. I bet Obama has a few and I bet Bifen has a few dozen.

    Check out this video. I dare you!

    YouTube - Obama's International Gun Registration Act CIFTA

    Obama asked the Senate to ratify a 12 year old Clinton treaty known as CIFTA which will create an INTERNATIONAL gun owner database.

    One Israeli made handgun with a box of ammo. Of course, having trouble buying the ammo since it sells the minute it hits the shelves.

    Okay serious question here. Obviously different guns have different characteristics, etc., and there's clearly some collector interest going on. But what drives you guys into the dozens of gun purchases? Not to state the obvious, but you can only fire one at a time. One for every room in a house still doesn't get you to 3 dozen. Enlighten me here. I promise not to argue "the gun issue," I just want to know what's going through your head when you have 37 but it's not enough.

    If you have more guns at different places, you don't have to worry about reloading. Just grab and shoot.

    Its not a simple answer, so i will try to break it down. No one goes out and buys so many guns at once, at least i have never meet anyone who did. That being said:

    1.Learned behavior, for me i grew up in an extened family that like to hunt and fish. I started handling guns at 6 years old under supervision. I grew up in a time when it wasn't politically incorect to hunt. Think of the movie a "Christmas Story" were the greatest thing in the world was getting a BB gun. I WAS the charector Ralphie. I really relate to that movie and the charector.

    2.The guns i own were accumulated over 40 years. Some as gifts,a .22 when i was 12,a 12 gage shotgun when i was 15 so i could go hunting with my cousins. Some were just to good to pass up. Ex. a custom built .338 magnum for $150 because the guy needed the money, same with the TZ 75.

    But most of all when i was young i became fascinated with ballitics, i read all i could. By the time i was 12-13 i probabley knew more about guns, the HX, makes models,and ballistic charectoristics than most gun shop owners. I could tell you the velocity and energy of a particular cartrige/bullett from the muzzle out to 500 yards. I'm talking maybe 30-40 different calibers. I had memorized ballistic charts, more over while i have never been good at math i figured out a way to calculate ft. lbs of energy (plasma physics) when i was 13 or 14.
    So over the years i bought different guns in different calibers because of their ballistic charectoristics. I even went to and graduated from the Penn. gunsmith school 8 hours a day 5 days aweek for about two years. But never used it. The insight it helped me later on in mechanical engineering.

    3.The new toy syndrom, each gun is different, its like getting a new toy. You buy a new gun and it becomes your new favorite for a while.... I would rotate favorites.

    4.Each gun listed has a different purpose depending on the caliber. Some are suited for heavey brush, some are good for long range shooting, some are good for taking to the range and shooting at tin cans etc.

    Since i did A LOT of target shooting most i own were built or choosen for accuracy.

    The ironic part even though i don't hunt or very rarly shoot any more, i want them, there like old friends its almost something primal. Weather thats learned behvior or not i don't know. I've been around guns as long as i can remember. I hope that gives you some insight into it.

    I paid for 2 (shot gun for birds and a deer rifle) of my 7 guns, the rest were gifted/inherited. I was given a 12 guage riot gun that I regifted to a buddy, and use to have a 7mm Mauser circa WW1 (my Dad gave me)that was seized in a drug bust at a friends home that I never bothered to do the paper work to have it returned.

    1 CO2 powered BB gun pistol. :D Seriously!!

    And I have my eye on a BB gun rifle that fires at 1200 feet/second as well.

    I use to have a BB gun, Dad took it away after I shot my brother on his nose, I wonder if Dad still has it?

    Pellet guns are lots of fun, perfect for an urban setting and running off varmits. I need one.
