Dave Ramsey would tell you that owning just one weapon is enough. Why would you need two guns, after all, and the expense of purchasing a second or subsequent gun? Although Ramsey and some others feel that you should own only one weapon, many people break that persona as we speak, owning a collection of Glocks and other weapons. Some people have 20+ weapons in their arsenal. So, what is the right number of weapons for one person to own?
There isn’t a right or a wrong number when it comes to the right amount of guns for you to own. It is acceptable to own any number of weapons as long as you are obtaining them legally, have authority to purchase those weapons, and can afford to purchase them. Many people have good reasons for owning many guns and some just find it a fascinating hobby. Either way, buy as many guns as you’d like. If you want a weapon for everyone in the home, that is a great reason to own more than one weapon. If you collect classic weapons or enjoy showing off your collection at shows, there is yet another benefit.
Be sure to have a gun safe that will hold all of your weapons, however. The last thing that you want is for your guns to get in the hands of a criminal or in the hands of young children and the use of a gun safe minimizes the risk that this will happen. Many awesome gun safes of various size and structure are sold today so it shouldn’t be hard to find something to hold your collection, no matter its size. Whether you own one gun or own 20 guns, own them proudly and safely!
