        anon... we need to have a chat. see, there are these beings called humans. humans have needs and resources are scarce. so everything you do in excess causes someone else extreme adversity. every extra gun some dumb redneck buys is a gun a person of color or trans folks or any other underrepresented minority could have, to defend themselves from racists and fascists. by indulging in extreme excess, extreme excess being defined as anything beyond the bare minimum, you are doing violence to those around you by denying them the opportunity to acquire minimal needs through your sheer unquenchable greed. maybe think of others before you think about trying to enjoy yourself. if you even smile, that could bring back traumatic memories to those around you of times when they themselves weren't so lucky. so try to do better to be a better human okay?

    I don't respect those consumerist homosexuals who go around buying gun after gun like they're funko pops or handbags but, at the same time, life isn't about pure practicality or need. Damn near everything we do in life is about fulfilling wants rather than needs. All you ''need'' is food, water and shelter; I could get all that with food stamps and a cardboard box under an overpass. Settling for what you ''need'' is contrary to human nature and no more conducive to a good life than brainless, cattle-like consumerism.

      There is no practical reason to have more than 4 guns:

      >shotgun
      >22 plinking gun

      People who have more than 4 guns: why do you collect?

      Anyway, more to the point of your question, I have a little over 20 guns. Some are relatively practical (two carry guns for different outfits, a home defense rifle, etc), others are less practical but still get a lot of use (I don't need to hunt with a lever-action .45-70 with iron-sights but it's more challenging and more enjoyable than my optics-laden LMT MWS, I don't need a dedicated skeet gun but it improved my score and is more pleasurable to shoot than my rattling Maverick), some I bought purely because I wanted to own them (my Garand and my Luger are pieces of history, the helical mag on my Calico makes it look cool af). The latter category are no different than the paintings on my walls or the ZX-14 in my garage, owning beautiful or well-made or meaningful objects is enjoyable.

    I don't collect guns. I have an AR, a shotgun, a duty pistol, a 22, and a versatile revolver.

    The other twenty I have in my possession are for other people to also have a pistol and an AR, should an occasion arise where people I care about who thought they didnt need them or thought they had time suddenly find themselves lacking.

    >>all-purpose rifle
    No such thing exists. A carbine or a full sized rifle are going to have extremely different use cases, and that's just getting into barrel length instead of caliber or action.

    Pump, semi-auto, break? 28"+,18.5", or something in-between? They're all going to have different uses. I wouldn't take my Remington 870 hiking, but I would take my single shot break action. I wouldn't defend my home with the single shot, but I'll go for the 870.

    Because they're fun. There's more to life than fulfilling your basic nutritional needs, building a shelter, and reproducing. Moreover, if that life was so good then why did we move on from it? If we were happy being hunter gatherers then why did multiple groups of people independently develop agriculture? Did humanity just get collectively gypped? Are we just drawn to suffering? Or maybe we're here because our forefathers lived shitty lives and tried to improve that so we'd live less shitty lives. But obviously the answer is burn it all down and hit reset, collective generations of effort and agony put to the torch because someone had to work a 40 hour work week

      i've been having a realignment lately on the "burn it all down" thing. lefty nutjobs have been saying the same thing. they want to burn it all down so their "ideology" can emerge from the ashes. the dissident right wants to burn it down because they think the same thing will happen. which means no one is thinking about taking the hill so to speak. they want to destroy it, the other guys want to destroy it, which means no one wants to occupy and fix it. the sinking ship analogy doesn't work here either because the ship will be grounded shortly after springing a leak on account of the ocean only being a few feet deep. with some pumps and some muscle, the ship is effectively available to whoever wants it at the moment.
