I am an accumulator and not a collector.

I call myself that because I like nearly everything but I don't ever spend the money to get something rare or unique. If I come up with something that is collectable it is by accident.

I like your rule #1.

On the rare occasions when I let a weapon go, I would rationalize for example by saying, "I only have two hands. Why would I need three 1911s?".

Now I realize that rationale is bogus. I don't let much go any more.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. Thomas Jefferson

There may be a slight gun purchasing pause while I wait on another safe to arrive...

As long as the desired categories and types of guns are already in one's home, they can only be used on a long-term basis when they have 'fuel'.
The only reason for recently buying a second SKS was having returned the 7x62 stash back to 3,500 rds.

The next mass sheep stampede might not ever really stop. Today's .22LR mania was predicted to stop last summer.

At least three years' worth of affordable ammo for a given type of chambering could be necessary if the next gun/ammo panic is worse than the last.
