    Thanks Kirk. I know i enjoy yours as well!

    As to visors? Consult Stonemint first...me last..LoL

    I do however so want a black SS NCO visor. But that will have to wait until I hit Lotto

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    So enjoy!!

    First up are all the "camo" brothers together.....(only the winter camo is new)

    Thanks Smitty. Glad you enjoyed it. And yes...a little bit of everything. I like it all so very hard to focus and specialize. Just wish I had more room

    Thanks Jake. Finding a nice winter white wash is extremely difficult. I was lucky to have been given the opportunity to purchase this one by a fellow member here.

    And yes, the collection is nice are varied. As you say, there are just so many interesting items I just can't discipline myself to focus on one area.

    LoL Rene...I think you are massively underselling your collection. I've seen your photos. It is pretty impressive
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
