    Not really, I have had all the guns I needed long ago. However in watching the news I have started considering which ones I will keep more available plus I have been putting off buying a few things like extra magazines etc that I need to get. At my age 74, I am not as worried as I would be were I younger. I have pretty much lived my life. Say someone is 24 years old. There is no way they will see my age, (74) without going through fighting and trying to survive in dire circumstances in the next 50 years. I suspect a lot less! We have many grand kids younger than that.

    Minimally. I bought an o1980XSE this year because the line was discontinued, but I was already looking for a blued, full-size when the announcement was made.

    No. I'm still looking for the same kind of firearms I have been purchasing over the last 30+ years.

    No. Playing follow the leader is not for me. I collect what I like, regardless of what others are doing.

    Same here - if I was in "prepper mode" I wouldn't be acquiring Ruger & Colt single actions, nor a North American Sidewinder .22 Mag.

    I have plenty. Now I only look for "targets of opportunity". If the price is too and/or non-negotiable I walk. I don't need or want anything if we can't agree on a reasonable price.

    What are the current trends? I've bought a few new Colts (and old) this year; I got a couple of the M45A1's, probably because of my Marine Corps connection and that has gotten me into the rail guns. I always consider myself an individual but have no problem liking what other people like, and make no apologies for it.

    I don't think so, I focus exclusively on a very old design by John Moses Brown that still in use today. I figure if it was good for G.I.'s in two world wars........
