    I have read a few other threads where people where being classified as crazy for having weapons.. Or heavily armed for having 5 pistols and some ammo.

    So I have to ask myself how would you classify yourself?

    I consider myself mildly armed.. Might move up to heavily armed if I had more ammo.

    NOTE TO SELF< BUY MORE AMMO!

    Mildly armed.

    The media though would say I have a huge arsenal and a cache of ammunition, assault weapons, body armor and special equipment for making more lethal untraceable ammunition.

    The poll is flawed...

    Any true gun collector will never have enough, or too much. Even if I had 100, I would still consider myself "mildly armed".

    Objectiveness aside. I consider myself a shooter first, a lifelong pupil to firearms (when other kids had stacks of Porn under their bed, I had stacks of guns and ammo magazines under mine), and the anti fan boy.

    If I have 2 apple boxes in the closet with WW2 surplus 45's, I might consider myself just a beginner.

    25? guns. Only six are tactically interesting.
    I live in a crappy neighborhood so my alert level is pretty high. Never more than a few feet from a firearm, usually AR#2

    That and the amount of XM193, 45ACP and buckshot I stashed probably makes me heavily armed.

    I'm sure the media would classify me as "heavily armed" (amongst other things), but there's always room for improvement, so I put down "mildly armed".

    Doesn't everyone have two-dozen guns? Isn't that average?

    I only have 7 and need 3 more to have what I consider the minimum to do all the types of shooting that I want to do. After the 10 necessity guns, any other additions will be just for collecting purposes.

    I only have one gun, but I've got a box of those teflon-coated armor-piercing ceramic bullets that can't be detected by airport security and cost more than you make in a month.

    So I checked "average".
