I'd say 5-10, but I only own two at the moment.
1 or 2 electro
1or 2 mech
(This can be two- stock and open)
1 or 2 wall hanger
1 or 2 project

As many have said before me, it's down to personal choice, but for me, I used to be the big collector with big plans and dreams, and months spent tracking down one of everything from a few particular brands (Tippmann and Toxic Toys). Nowadays, I'm down to 4 markers I won't get rid of due to sentiment (my first marker, 2 markers from deceased friends, and a JT ER2 that's just fun to have), and then working towards just 4 markers between the wife and I that will fill the roles of pump, mech, and electro (Empire Sniper and Tippmann Crossover XVR). Wall hangers are great and all, but this gear was made to be used and abused. I admire the projects and builds from afar, but at the end of the day, I want to have just enough gear to get me on the field and nothing to be sitting at home, dusting and rusting into uselessness.
Want to improve your game? The best thing to buy is more paint and more field fees.

Not playing nearly enough

For me between phases of hording and thinking I needed at least one of each major flavor, I have scaled back to this rule: 1 for each playing member of my family plus 1 spare should someone's go down or we're bringing a non-player to join us. That makes it currently a limit of 4.
I have a 1-2 pump allowance also to scratch that itch when it comes up. I'm the only one in the family that really gets that itch so we don't need 4+ pumps.
I had ten or so at one stage and sold a whole bunch of them off when I realized that someone else could get the joy of playing with the guns that I wasn't shooting. I could feel their loneliness for never getting picked despite being perfectly good markers. I figured I only needed to keep my favorites.

I am currently on the downswing phase in the collection. I had well in the thirties realm at one time, but now I am down to three Mags,three Autocockers, one open class Sniper, one Phantom, one Promaster, and numerous parts of this an that guns. I am currently going through the this and that pile, looking to cut down it is some too.
If meat is murder, I'll have a beer with the murder please.

What gratification is there in owning something just for the sake of owning it?

As long as the pile of accumulated guns isn't actually crushing the life out of you, you probably don't have too many.
