42! 

 

Isn't this the ultimate question to life, the universe and everything?:P

Yes, in fact it is.

 

I always thought it was 43.   And it belonged to Richard Petty.

Even though the 42 belonged to someone else, the guy who drove the 42 belonged to Richard Petty..............So see, 42 is the answer to everything.:huh:

A friend of mine was having a gun talk with one of his shooting buddies. Their lady friends were in the room but not paying very close attention. Then one of the ladies broke in and asked just how many do you have, and the buddy answered her honestly. She said, "That is insane. Nobody needs that many guns."

 

That relationship was soon dissolved. Later his buddy told my friend, " Heck, I just thought she meant; How many SAA's do you have?"

Howdy Sun.

I might be mistaken (especially with NASCAR history), but I think the original 42

was LEE Petty, Richard's father.   When Richard entered the scene, I think he originally went to 43.

In NASCAR, the 42 number was passed on to Kyle Petty and King Richard kept 43.

 

One think I don't have a clue:   I don't know if the number was exclusive for the driver or

if it belonged to another owner.

I think Petty Enterprises owned both #42 and 43.   

But I admit, I don't know if Richard actually owned Petty Enterprises or if it was owned by

a corporation, etc...

 

ANYHOW, to get back on topic, I bet Richard Petty owned a few guns also but nobody knows

how many..... :lol:

That's not a question that one answers on a public forum. Also, I don't want to be called a liar and a BS artist.  :D

 

However, I will say that I don't have enough and I am short of what I "NEED".  :P

Less the one third of my firearms the state knows about. I bought a lot of stuff before registration was required and before computerized systems.

C'mon, be realistic.  We shoot a sport that requires 4 guns.  Fortunately for me, that is how many guns I own.  :)

Guns are evil and politically incorrect.  That's why I don't own one.

I honestly don't know. I do have enough for the 4 in my family to shoot a match without sharing, though.

I'm a long term (since age 8; Desert Scorpion takes great pride in starting at age 5) multi discipline shooter.

My first job at 14 was in a gun shop (by 15, I was running said shop and doing all ordering).

For over a decade; I ran the firearms division for one of the largest pawn shop chains in the nation.

I'm a Nevada concealed weapons instructor.

My family and I have owned a gun shop in Pahrump NV since 2001.

 

And oddly; after all that - I don't own a single firearm.  :D

Actually the guy who drove the #42 owned the number #43. He was the father of Richard, and his name was Lee. Won the first Daytona 500 I think.

Two ways I'd answer that --

 

To Mrs. H. -- just one fewer than what I need to be really competitive.

 

To anyone else -- none. See, there was this unfortunate canoe accident at the dam, when I had taken them all with me when I went fishing . . .

 

Oh, so do you know Mike from Canmore?

(Canadians on this site will get it)

I borrow all the guns I need for SASS, and I give 'em back when I'm done.  Not sure what that Pard's real name is though.

None.  Zero.  Nada.  Nary a one.  I lost all my guns in Hurricane Michael.  That's my story & I'm sticking to it.

NOW, those are the requirements... but 30 years ago when I acquired a couple of guns in CA those weren't in place if buying used, face to face... etc... CA does NOT know how many guns I bought... and NEVER will.
