I've owned more than 50 but not at one time. I sold some inherited long guns and I regret most sales. I've sold only three guns which I purchased new and I regret all three, especially a Beretta BL-3. I currently have about 40, a couple are valuable, but I'd like to reduce my "collection". I do have two sons-in-law who want all of them, and one of them has a father who has $14,000 bench rest competition rifles and an uncle with the most secure storage I have ever seen for about 200 or so firearms - including a classic collection of pre-64 Winchester Model 70s.
