Wisconsin –-(Ammoland.com)- “Beware of the man who owns but one gun–for he can shoot it” an old adage implying that a person who is only able to possess one firearm will somehow be extremely proficient and accurate when discharging that weapon.
I am not sure I really buy that thought process, since I have known a lot of people over the years who only owned one firearm. In most cases they used it very little and were not that good or accurate when they did fire their one gun.
The truth is if you can only afford to own one firearm the chances are you cannot afford to buy the amount of ammo needed to enable you to practice firing said firearm, to become that person who can truly shoot as well as implied in the above statement.
What if you have the resources to buy multiple firearms and all the ammo you might need to be a really good shot, but you are legally only allowed by law to own one firearm?
For Americans multiple gun ownership is considered normal and is rather everyday common place, but not for many in the majority of the countries of the world that grant their citizens the “privilege” of limited gun ownership.
