And maybe fun/nostalgic. Ok, a few ”rules” - you can’t say how many guns you have, nor can you disclose any values. That’ll make it fun for everyone and the guy with 1 gun and 6000 guns can participate. But, um, if you have 6000 guns, please be aware that I would be a very attentive and respectful adopted son. Or son-in-law if you have a hot daughter.
Like many of you, I’d bet, I have a spreadsheet that I use to track inventory and values. Think of (but don’t say) the total value of your firearm collection. We’ll call this number “A”. It can be price paid or current value. Next, think of the price you paid for your first car. Again, don’t tell us how much it cost, just think of the number. We’ll call this number “B”.
Divide the collection value by the cost of the car, or A/B. What’s your number? My number is 22. Dang.
Here are some quick examples...
* Collection value is $5000. 1st Car value was $500. Your number is 10.
* Collection value is $850. 1st Car value was $2000. Your number is 0.425.
* Collection value is $100,000. 1st Car value was $750. Your number is 133.33
You don’t necessarily have to have a huge gun collection in order to have a high number. For example, a guy with 2 or 3 guns with a value of, let’s say $2500, could blow the doors off the guy with the 133.33 number if his first car was a heap and he only paid $50 for it (he‘d have a score of 50).
Yeah, slightly bored this morning. Remember, no discussion of how many guns, value of guns or value of that first car. This is all about “the number”.
My number is 22.
