How many guns can one person legally own?

I have five guns now. The last weapon I bought I told myself "This it, I now have enough guns" but every time I go to the range and look in the gun store I see something that catches my eye. I wasn wondering is there a set number on the guns one person can own? I don't plan on buying another, I'm just curious!!!

Always seems to be one more.... then just one more.... oh but I forgot about that one so.. one more...

At last count I passed 30. Remember your kidís guns, your wife's guns, and friendís guns that you are working on or just storing don't count against you when you are negotiating with your finance manager.

Actually with the proper tax stamps and permits you can have full auto, suspressors, and SBR's as well.

I'm at 28 and counting. Back in the 90's Janet Reno would have had me apply for an "arsenal license" if she had her way.

5 guns is all one needs.... Really.... A .22 Revolver, a .22 rifle, a .45 Colt revolver, a 30/06 rifle, and a 12g shotgun... Simple huh . So why? ..... So why do we have more than that? .... Why not? Looking for that perfect pack'n revolver? Perfect hunting rifle? Perfect caliber? Historical? Retirement? Fun? . All part of the game!

As many as you can afford and a safe place to store them when not in use...
