Do you buy guns on need, want, or both?
I was smitten by a Walther PPS recently, bought one in 9mm. I just tried it out the other week, shot just fine.
I have .17 HMR, .22 short, .22 LR, .223, .25-06, .300 Win Mag, .45/70, .50 cal and .54 cal muzzleloaders, various shotguns, three or four 9mm handguns, a couple .22 handguns. .40 S&W, .44 mag. In the past I've also owned .243, .30-06, 6.5x55mm, .264 Win Mag, and .270...
Did I NEED any of these guns, probably not. But I want them, and if I can afford it, I will own them. The guns I don't see much of a use for after a while, I then sell to get other guns.

As far as the "I don't need a gun" pic, looks like gov't paranoia to me.
