Default What Do You Collect?

Got on to this question on another thread and thought it might be interesting to find other people's interests.

Do you have a 'theme' to your collection, or multiple themes, or no plan at all? Usually one buys a new gun because it appeals to one somehow - but in what manner?

I collect target type handguns (Bullseye and PPC, mostly), "Cop guns" - revolvers and some pistols used by law enforcement agencies in the 20th Century, and 'art deco' .32 automatics.

How about all of you folks?
Finally back in the United States!

Other than expanding our gun collection, I love to get magnets from places that I visit or I have friends bring me magnets from places that I will never make it too. I also love Marilyn Monroe and collect books about her, Merlot, etc.

Mainly I collect small steel engravings of famous Americans- Ben Franklin, US Grant, Andy Jackson, etc.

Starting collecting cartridges some time ago- weird, strange, unusual, obsolete.

For guns (before our HORRIBLE boating accident) the usual Milsurps, stuff I enjoy shooting, and older Mossberg and Remington 22s- also acquired several low dollar .410 shotguns- mostly bolt actions.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

Outside of guns I collect odd pocket knives, not my good hunting or carry knives. I mean the "Eat at Joes" ad type knives or any oddball stuff I find at garage sales, gun show and flea markets, quality isn't as much an issue as being unique to me. I also collect odd diving watches with the same criteria.
Keep up with the trends, avoid the fads, take your time and do work you can be proud of always

I have a number of former LE agency guns. It started with my finding a PD marked Colt PPS at a gun show and just went crazy from there. Currently I have a S&W 5946 from NYPD, a S&W 5943 from Cleveland, OH PD, a Glock from Metro Police in Washington PD, a Mossberg 500 from a Florida PD, a S&W 4506-1 from a Texas PD, a Beretta 92 from LASD, a S&W Model 10 from KCPD, a Remington 870 from the US Secret Service and several others. No PD marked rifles though, only handguns and shotguns.

Once I finish my base arsenal, then I'll start on the collection. Right now, I'm thinking start with S&W top break revolvers.
