    Unless you absolutely need the cash there is no sense selling what you have because you just buy more later on except it is more expensive.
    Nice collection.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    My own thoughts on the matter.

    I'm not a dealer,---- I am a collector. My stuff will not go up for sale until
    it's time for me go to that big show in the sky.

    I have only sold a couple pieces (and regretted it) and have traded a couple pieces
    ith other collectors.

    Well said!!!!
    I feel exactly the same way. I buy to keep not to sell.

    I will add that I love that 08!!!!!!!Just makes for a badass display and focal point in a collection.

    I do have one question about your collection. In the second pic down, on the rifle rack. Near the wall, What is that black tube that tappers at the end?

    I love the Stahlhelm covers. (and obviously other items there)
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    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

    Those you see are subjective the close one on the box and one on the floor (that was horribly filthy stunk so I washed in borax) I like them for me they are cottage industry others may disagree. Thank you I'll post what I have in a thread.
