I agree with Josh..quality over quantity.

My max I've ever had at one time I think is 5, but 3 of them were for sale. I think since I've gotten back into the sport, and joined MCB, I've had somewhere in the high 20s, low 30s in total guns.

I'm currently down to keeping 2, my Phantom and a Kaos for the girl.

I have a Duckslide DSP incoming (most likely going up for sale shortly), trading a modified T8.1 for it. I also have a Nelspot that I'm trying to sell. So currently, I have 4.

What's a set number that's too high? It varies with every person. For me, it comes down to a ratio of cost to benefits. I've had 2 fully decked out CCMs as well as another pistol at the same time, yet I was only playing twice a month or so. Why should I have nearly $2,000 in gear, if I'm only going to play so often? More and more people around me are getting out of the sport, so it's getting harder and harder to find time to play. I'd rather have that money to invest in other hobbies. I've managed to cut my total investment in paintball by a little more than 2/3, and yet I feel like I'm not missing anything. Every once in a while, it's good to evaluate your set up and figure out if you're truly still having fun. If not, change it up.

Ask her how many purses or pairs of shoes she has. That usually works fairly well.

you have too many when you honestly start looking at a larger vehicle or a trailer to haul your equipment to the field on a day of play.

you forget that you have something after you unearth the box that it was in.

you need to carry around the programming cards because you have too many to remember which board in is which gun.

you spend too much time and paint at the chrono station because you want to get a few guns field ready.

people are amazed at you when you bring only one box/crate to the field to play.

you buy orings in bulk.

you can field multiple 5, 7 and/or 10 man teams.

proshops give you a call when the new shipment of guns come in.

the proshop names the new wing or the entire new store after you, because you funded it.

when the GF/wife has to compare purses and/or shoes to the number of guns you have.

you have to start using other address to have guns come in, THEN you have to sneak them in, hide them in the collection and only bring them out after a few weeks/months so that you don't raise suspicion that you just got the gun.

you purposely start to work on guns(in a professional manor) to justify the shear number of guns that are coming to your house.

you have to move house, not because your family is getting bigger, its the room you store your gear in is too small.
