The definition of to collect or collecting is - to bring or gather together, form a group, accumulate and store over a period of time or systematically seek and acquire items of a particular kind as a hobby. A Gun Collector may have a very narrowly defined interest or objective, or a much broader scope for his or her collection.
What constitutes a collection? People have different ideas or criteria. When we refer to people, you would not call one or even two people a group. But if there are three, you might call them a group. So my point of view is three. But really that's not important at all.
What is important is that you are enthusiastic about the guns you collect and enjoy all of the uniqueness, history, recreation and sport associated with them.

John Browning had contracts with Colt and F.N. and this is why the Baby Browning was not imported to the U.S. until 1954, even though it had been in production for twenty-five years or so. Colt stopped producing the vest pocket .25 pistols and got out of that market in 1953.
The 1968 Gun Control Act (signed by President Johnson on October 22, 1968 in the wake of the King and Kennedy assassinations) prohibited the importation of these guns. The funny thing is, Kennedy was shot with an Iver Johnson (American made gun) and King was assassinated with a Remington 760 Gamemaster rifle (also American made). With the American market cut-off, F.N. produced far fewer guns from 1969 to 1979, for export to other countries like Spain. Some of these guns are showing up in the U.S. recently.
