Im starting by collecting a gun in each rnd size. But they have to be nice sleek looking guns. First was Springfield 1911-A1 .45, second was Px4 9mm, my next one will be a M&P 40c. Not sure after that. Once I have all size rnds, I would like to have a gun from each manufacture.

I don't have any theme. I mostly buy tried and true guns that might be worth a few cents more if I ever have to sell them. And yes, they all get shot.
Of course there are those impulse buys like the Bersa, Hi Point, and CZ 52.
I always try to have a little cash available for those times when a good piece comes along at a good price.

We were watching "The Soup" and they were making fun of the show about old virgins. The one guy actually collected his belly button lint in a jar......yikes!

Some of my Collection Compulsive Disorder.
  • Vintage staplers, hole punches and pencil sharpeners. (Now they certainly don't make them like they used to).
  • D.A.M. Quick Fishing reals.
  • Nuts, Bolts, Screws and Washers
  • Vintage (but steel) woodworking hand tools (Scrapers, Dowel Cutters, Compass Planes)

i dont have a real theme collection thing going. i buy a gun if it appeals to me and i want to shoot it. i do like military arms especially old ww2 and ww1 guns. im a huge fan of iron sights and would simply love to have a 45-120 with a very good peep sight setup some day

I have a misc. collection acquired over the years. Some are family hand-me-downs (heirlooms) and a few as gifts (including a few gifts to 'self'). My latest soon-to-be acquisition is a revolver my sister has that was her deceased husband's. It is a very nice S&W .32-20 (Winchester .32 Crt)
Hand-eject probably made b/w 1915 and 1920. Can't wait to get it. Now to peruse some gun shows and see if I can find some ammo or even an empty box.
