One day I happened to look behind the bedroom door and there were a few odds and ends leaning there.  Amongst the junk was an Egyptian? rolling block rifle I didn't recognize.  I don't know where or when I got it.  Dusty and dirty - it had been there years. I cleaned it up with Pledge and took it to a gunshop and got a tidy little sum. That's how many I have.

When you say "guns"....are you talking about ALL guns including the CAS stuff?   Just stuff that's functional outside of CAS (home/personal defense, hunting, etc)?   What about percussion or flint lock black powder guns, count those too?   What about antiques that are really challenging to obtain ammunition for?

All I can say is if we are attacked and they try to come ashore at Granby Place, I believe I can hold them off for a while :)

I can truthfully say that I own no guns.

 

Neither do I own any howitzers or mortars.

Just so you know, a mortar IS a gun.

From Wikipedia, but matches with what I remember from the 1863 Ordnance Department manual:

"A gun was a cannon designed to fire in a flat trajectory, a howitzer was a shorter piece designed to throw exploding shells in an arcing trajectory, and a mortar was a very short piece for firing at elevations of more than 45°."

 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;)

Quite correct, but a gun is also defined as a weapon with a smooth barrel, which a mortar has.

Not enough of any of those categories except safe queens.

 

 I don’t have any safe queens.

How many guns do you have that you have because you jokingly made an offer and it was accepted?

I've got one of those. 

I was given (free) 2 holsters, one belt and one shoulder holster. The shoulder holster is a S&W. A little research and it's for a 8 3/8" model 29. That free holster cost me a bit of $$$.
