    I have three, but my Alien Gear holster hosts a few kydex shells for my other handguns.

    Since I changed over to Side Clips. I have ZIP! Sold all holsters off about six years ago.

    My wife has probably 10 including a couple double gun rigs for her SA Rugers. She also has a few U/Mikes pocket liners for her purses.

    It's the other junk I'm trying to thin these days. Like grips, and gizmo, "Kentucky Go Fasters" that have found way too much importance to pitch into the boxes of screws and thingies that seem to haunt gun collectors empty corners. Same with my knife drawer.

    I gave some away and I still have too many to even bother to count. For years I tried many IWB holsters and tried very hard to get used to them but I could not, so I stopped carrying that way and I switched to OWB holsters which I like much better but here in Florida, I don't always wear pants with a belt. I like Pocket holsters but I only use them for my small .380 gun and Glock 43 only so I finally have narrowed it down to two Pocket Holsters and two OWB holsters. IWB holsters I hate but I still keep them, just in case but in case of what, I just don't know!

    Probably 15 or 16. Going to let a several go, that I don't use. Need (want?) a couple more, for guns for which I have no holster.

    10 to 12, I guess.

    I have at least one holster for every handgun I own, even though some of the guns I don't think I would ever carry... like the Ruger GP100, the Speed six or the S&W 63. But I still have holsters for them just because one day I might! Maybe for a revolver class or something!!!!

    As for the basic CCW guns, I have a IWB and OWB for each gun. Even the 2 G19s I have, I have an IWB and an OWB for each of them. Why? Maybe for that SHTF scenario where family members might need them. IDK.

    Off hand guess, 9-10. Like someone said, I don't hold on to the ones I don't like.

    Well for a lot of my carry guns I have LH and RH holsters. Then I had duty holsters, then shoulder, then IWB, then of course competition holsters for some guns, then the light kydex holsters came out and were cheap. Then I had my cowboy rigs , ankle holsters, pocket holsters. There were years I carried 3 guns at work.

    Of course I had to have holsters for my big bore hunting guns. Over a lifetime of being in the sport it all adds up.

    I have decided to do what others have probably done when getting holsters for my Glocks. I buy a holster preferably a leather OWB for a G19 that can be used for a G26, G17, G19, G27, G22 and maybe more to come. This keeps the numbers down but then you add in the IWB CCW ones and the numbers start to pile up in the search for a comfortable IWB holster.

    Some of mine were expensive and now they all reside in a shelf in the safe and there are too many of them.

    More than I need, and need to get rid of some more.
    We just moved, and I donated a bunch to different places. I no longer have any that I don't have a pistol for, and several that I just didn't ever like or wear. Still have several that fit several guns. Between Leather, Plastic, and Nylon, still have several.

    I couldn't even begin to tell you. I found a holster that has been lost since 1998. I have 3 duty 1911 holsters. There would only be two but I cracked one shutting the door of a Crown Vic and sandwiching the holster between me and the door.

    A large drawer full. Maybe 25-30. And I just sold a load awhile back.

    Of course, these are for the guns that I lost in a terrible boating accident.
