I'm not a collector, by any means. All my firearms fill a niche. I don't have any that I "want" because of the gun itself in particular. I "want" them to fill a "niche", even if the "niche" is itself a "want" and not a need.
Based on that, I really can't see owning more than 8 or 10, tops. I'm not really sure how I'd even get that high.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
