That is handguns versus long guns.

Mine:

48% long guns = 66% rifles, 34% shotguns.

52% handguns = 22% revolvers, 77% semi-auto

36% rifles

HG's
---------
64% semi auto pistol
36% wheelgun

(recently down from 45 percent six guns- I traded one off)-extra credit- how many handguns does mike100 have?

Mine doesn't tip over, so it's balanced.:43:

I've got 4 shotties, about a dozen or so rifles, and about a dozen or so handguns. Mostly balanced, but still holes.

I've been unbalanced for years.

I think we need therapy:)

Let's see. 4 rifles, not including my registered .50BMG receiver. 7 assorted handguns. Sad part? I've only fired 2 rifles and 2 handguns.

I seriously gotta get some range time!

You own:
1 shotgun
2 rifles
2 revolvers
7 semi auto pistols

You're going to need to balance out your collection by buying more.
Or you may have 2 shotguns and 4 rifles which would acceptable :)

Which safe?
I have three of them.

I lost my inventory spreadsheet when my old computer died.
I don't actually know how many of each type of gun I have, nor does it really matter. ;)

In about 13 or so days, I'll be equal in rifles and pistols for the first time(usually rifle heavy). Only 3 shotguns, though. I want two more, but they are low on the priority list.

I just got and filled my 2nd safe. No room for a third so I'm going to have to be creative in my storage from now on.

One shotty and a boatload of rifles. One pistol (that lives by my bed in a minisafe).

Need more pistols!!!

One shotty

Feel free to grow up anytime.
It's a shotgun, learn it, live it and speak it.
Perhaps you were describing the quality of said shotgun and you hit the "o" instead of the "i" as they are right next to each other on the keyboard?

Well the only "pistols" I have are AK pistols, so if you count those, my guns would break down like this:

69% (9)Rifles
23% (3)Pistols
8% (1)Shotguns

I dont own any guns. I just play a guy on TV who owns guns...so you'll have to ask the FX guys........

Interesting... I did some calculations...


Pistols - 33.33% (semi-autos 80%, revolvers 20%)
Rifles - 60% (semi-autos 89%, bolt-actions 11%)
Shotgun - 6.67% (semi-autos 50%, pumps 50%)


Calibers:
• 22LR - 10%
• 9mm - 10%
• 40 S&W - 16.67%
• 45 ACP - 3.33%
• 357 Mag - 3.33%
• 5.56 NATO - 13.33%
• 7.62 NATO - 16.67%
• 7.62X39 - 13.33%
• 8mm - 6.67%
• 12 gauge - 6.67%

I didn't include spare/misc caliber conversions: barrels, cylinders, uppers

I need to do a more detailed inventory but well over 100 guns and 2/3 to 3/4 are handguns. I like them better and they take up less space. Of the long guns, 2/3 to 3/4 are rifles, the rest shotties:) Lots of "9's" in the handguns. I seem to concentrate on 9mm and .22lr calibered firearms due to ammo costs. Can you believe not a single scoped centerfire rifle either?! I may change that this week though.

You guys should spend more time at the range, and less time figuring out the percentages, unless you are talking about the quantum ratio of ammo per grain of powder divided by magazine capacity to the square root of pistol grips.:confused:

[calguns-thr mode]Randall, I don't see the issue...I call all my handguns "handy's". Haven't yet figured a cuter name for the rifles...maybe "carby's"... For the shorties;) with stuff on every rail, maybe "taxi's"??[/calguns-thr mode]

ETA...if I called any of my shotguns "shotty's", I guarantee I'd never get one of them to hit a pheasant again.

Once again, your sig line reads true:D

Merry Christmas to ya', I predicted your reply:D

That's what I'm thinking.
They probably drive cars that won't get them across a creek to a good shooting position either.
Indoor range shootin' sideways hat wearin' city slickers I tell ya.
They probably like hillary clinton too. :eek:

I have no clue, I would guess 50% rifles 20% shotguns and 30% handguns

4 semi auto shotguns, 50% semi auto rifles.

40% of my handguns are revolvers.

It is a moving target usually.

thedonger
12-18-2007, 11:00 AM
27% Rifles
27% Shotguns
46% Handguns

I'd like to get better parity between the Rifles and Handguns. I really don't need any more shotguns but might get just one or two some day.

They haven't tipped over yet.

Actually, these days it is pretty balanced between longarms and pistols.

Long Guns? check.

Old ones? check
Blue ones? check
Shiny ones? check
