I've made it to 56 so far.
Dad had a gun at the house, and I've had one all the time I've lived alone.
I've so far only shot a raccoon that may have been rabid and a copperhead that was in my Wife's parking space.
If I had a concealed carry permit, and had I driven my Wife to work when the guy crawled in her car window, saying, "I have a gun and I'm going to kill you", I'd have used it a third time.
