I am interested in seeing and sharing photos of members different treasures. The only problem is seeing a firearm you didn't need before, but now become a must have.
I agree with this. It's one thing to post an heirloom or a highly sought after rarity, or even just a run of the mill tool that you're particularly fond of.
But listing everything in your safe, in photos or even text? No thanks. Just like y'all don't know the color of every pair of drawers I own, you'll also never know every gun I have owned, will own, or currently own. In my opinion, that's just not public business, for MANY reasons.
I posted sometime last year about how easy it is to track someone down via seemingly harmless and ubiquitous information, and gave an example. Long story short, in the particular instance that I used as an example, I was cut off by a soccer mom with an attitude while driving (DWB: driving while bitchy). within minutes of digging, starting with nothing but the stickers on her back window which gave her kid's names and the dance school they go to, along with the fact that she was leaving a local middle school, I was able to find out where they live, they had no dog, likely no alarm system, the parents' occupation, and that they and the younger child were going out of town for the weekend, and leaving their 15 year old daughter at home alone.
Now, that was merely an exercise in academics, conducted by a half educated redneck with no ill intent to prove a point. It's also how I tracked down my ex wife when she kidnapped my son.
Imagine someone doing this WITH ill intent. NOW stop and consider how much information you post about your possessions online.
My opinion, it's no different than stacking Christmas trash by the curb. No need to let the whole world know what's inside your house.
