Personally, I can't think of 100 guns I would really want.. But if they came my way I wouldn't turn them down. As far as defense goes, you can really only use one at a time effectively, so the guy probably just liked guns.
I am 31 and have 29 guns. Mostly WWI/WWII stuff. By the time I am old enough to kick the bucket (hopefully when I am old) I will have 100 guns. Some people look at all guns the same. They are and they are not. My 107 year old Martini-Enfield and my 1970s CZ
-70 are hardly comparable. People want to make a big deal about a man with a lot of guns. The real question is what kind of guns. Having dozens of antiques is one thing. Having dozens of AK
-47s is another (I only have one of those). I have lots of ammo too. Why. Many of the vintage guns I like the ammo is hard to come by or will be hard to come by when the supplies finely run out. I enjoy shooting and I want enough to last me a long time. I have guns that ammo is no longer made for. When the surplus is gone it is gone. I will buy a bunch so I can always shoot my guns. I would never buy a gun I couldn't shoot; even if only a few times.
Some people would say one gun is too many. I would say you can never have enough. I also have four cars, some would say that is excessive. I say you can never have too many cars, tractors, motorcycles, boats, etc.
