    I'm up to 8 handguns, I may be done because needing and wanting are mutually exclusive.

    Smith Model 28 - I think I know someone who might own one, or two, or...of those. The Panzer Tank of Wheelguns and my favorite handgun!

    Yep buying handguns is very addictive especially if one has their concealed carry BS let me have my 2nd rights permit.
    I had bought 20 handguns in about a year and a half after getting my CHL. I sold off a bunch and now only have 12 handguns.
    I have enough guns and I am not going to buy anymore......famous last words. I said that so many times I can't imagine how many times I said that.
    Ruger GP100 Match Champion is my hand tank.

    Luckily, I've got pretty much everything I want, so I can go to the LGS or a gun show and not need someone else hold my credit cards. That could all turn on a dime if I see something I can't live without.

    I have specifically avoided 1911s. I don't need another caliber in my life.

    22LR, .38Spl, .357Mag, 9mm, .225Win, .30-06, 12ga and 20ga are it for me.

    EDIT - forgot .30-30, but it's not really my gun, just storing it for my father-in-law.

    LOL what you need has nothing to do with limiting gun ownership. At least it didn't for me. If you shoot a 1911 I would almost wager you would end up buying one.
    If you don't want to buy any more guns then don't be reading gun reviews, going into LGS or gun shows, checking out Gunbroker or gun auction sites. Don't watch Hickok45 videos. Gotta have it tends to sneak up when least expected. That was how I out grew my safe.
    Of course this is just my opinion or should I say my history of weakness for guns.
    I have four .22 handguns, 2 semi auto and 2 single shot revolvers.
    One 40 cal semi auto. One 9mm semi auto. Two 357 revolvers. Two 38 spl revolvers. One .32 revolver. One 1911 .45. Two semi auto 12 ga shottys. One 12 ga pump. One M&P 15-22 rifle. One 30-30 Marlin 336 lever rifle. One .22 Marlin 60. One co2 bb pistol. One pump bb rifle. LOL like I needed all these. But it keeps from getting bored shooting just a few. This is what is left after selling off over 12 guns. It is an addiction I tell ya. LOL I don't have squat compared to some gun owners.

    I forgot .30-30, although I'm storing the gun for my father-in-law and don't envision him taking it back.

    I have shot 1911's and they're awesome. Just going back to the need vs want.

    I have determined, I need to be working on Marlin rimfires. I want to, but now I also need to.

    I agree with straightshooter that buying guns can be addictive. I used to buy one handgun every year on my birthday. The hunger for more powerful and beautiful guns is like a drug addiction, you can't have enough of it.
