    So, I've been trading and purchasing some guns now on NWFA and elsewhere. My question is, how many guns do you currently own that you have yet to fire or test? For me it's four. An RRA stainless bull barrel upper attached to a Bushmaster AR lower, an S&W mod 13 purchased from a forum member, a Ruger Single-Six convertible purchased from a forum member, and a Colt Gold Cup accquired in a trade from another forum member.

    I have 4 mosins that I have yet to fire, a mauser, enfield, a couple shotguns, a NIB unfired S&W 624, a glock, sks, and probably a few others that I'm forgetting about. So thats at least 10-11 for me.

    Just one. I Just got a 4" 686 off of here, I have yet to shoot. I have the 6" that I shoot alot. Myself, not being a collector , but rather just having a lot of guns, I have to shoot them to justify the purchase.

    A 6.5 Carcano that I inherited from my grandfather (have ammo & clips, just never have fired it) and a WASR-10/63 that I've just never got around to firing.

    I wish my answer wasn't zero! I already have to deal with all the pictures of awesome collections on this forum. No need to twist the knife! :D:p (kidding of course)

    No twisting the knife. Just a sad commentary on my lack of range time. :(

    Several right now, but I'll get that taken care of soon. The bigger number
    for me is guns that I've fired, but it's been a L-O-N-G time since they
    were taken out for some "exercise".

    Only one. Have no clue what my S&W #642 Airweight feels like.

    OOPS... Forgot. I also have a 590 Mossy 12 gauge and a Win. 70 in 300 mag.

    I guess that puts me at three. :p

    I have part of a collection that has been handed down almost 4 generations now. So of which were dug up in Texas, SC, Mississippi. Civil war and Colonial war (War for our independence). So most of these are unable to ever be fired just nice conversation pieces. Actions, barrels, triger gaurds, a couple pistels (BP and revolvers, Colt, S&W and Ruger. )

    Until this afternoon, it would have been 6 for me. But we went out and had some fun, so now it is down to 3. Of course, I am not counting the 410 shotgun that my wife will be getting for Christmas (don't tell her! she doesn't know. :) ). Figured I would start her off with that, rather than jumping right up to a 12 ga.

    I put none, but I just remembered I have 1 winchester shotgun that the wife got as a wedding gift that she used hunting as a little girl. I have yet to shoot it, but it has been shot before...

    Two for me, but they are both BP's and I forgot the BP gear last time we went shooting.

    Think its 10 for me, not for lack of range time. I just go out the back door to shoot. Most are just for collectability and some are just to say their older and still havnt been popped. Some just get lost for awhile in the darkness of the safe until I remember their there.
