Have you ever lost your collection only to start over?
Brother, I was there in 1987, so I feel your pain. I had a Sep.pending divorce from Wife#1 AND Lost my Dad to Heart Attack#4 in the Space of 2 months. Then Wound up Staying(home) an extra year after moving back home to save $ to get my own place, Thought I was Also helping my Mom out Financially while she was waiting for My Dad's Life Ins. to pay out. Instead My Mom took it as an insult. Didn't loose any Guns Thk. GD,...but lost a lot of almost everything else....

I'm so sorry brother. Keep on keepin' on, and I'm sure everything will be better before you know it. Hang in there, and know you have a support network here if you need it.

Amen brother, you're not beaten until you accept defeat. What seems to be lost today can always be regained tomorrow if you don't quit.

You bet. Lost half a collection in a divorce and ended up selling the rest for the usual reasons.
It definitely stinks. Hang in there.

I have also been financially busted twice.
it's not a good experience and most of the people at my work can't relate to it.

Best of luck to you.
if you are unemployed (as I surmise) between sending off resumes find a good used book store and then buy a whole bunch of books of one series.

Like the Dresden files series starting at volume 1, "Stormfront"
or the Destroyermen series starting at volume 1, "Into the Storm"
or if you like High Fantasy the "Elric saga" from Michael Moorcook starting with vol 1 "Elric of Melnibone"

Or even the Deathlands series ( though from a quality standpoint it pales in comparison to the above ones however there are LOTS of them available and the plots are post apocalyptic.)

that's how I kept my sanity.

Sucks to hear so many have sold firearms in order to survive. I'm not in a great money position right now myself but will never consider selling my firearms... hope things get better for you OP

While it wouldn't be fun to sell off firearms... I would do what I would have to do for my family.

But firearms would be some of the last things to go. The motorcycle would be first. Then a car. Then the TV.

At the end of the day, while firearms are important to me, my family is more important.

Did you know that a (reasonably) famous Rock Band wrote a song based on Elric? Check out Blue Oyster Cult's Mirrors Album,...Song is called BLACK BLADE,..also on the Live album ETL....

I sold Guitars the first time. The second time at least I didn't go through it alone! My wife And I managed, went through a ch.7, and came out on the other side. 6 Years later we own a House, 2 Cars, and a new life in Az. Still sold 2 more Guitars and a host of other stuff before leaving NY 20 Months ago, and Since the Mz. is awaiting Disability now,..we had to sell some collectibles,...but life goes on!
