    My question is how many collectors out there there reading this.

    Well, I may not have been in the financial placement to be able
    to have been picky about what I've owned so much in my teenage and adult
    life, but I've gone through a few. I haven't been picking up things
    that are fancy, though, just what I know I can use effectively. It's
    all been about utility so far in my life. I hope to be able to
    'collect' for purposes other than survival and defense at some point in
    the near future.

    I have 7 handguns and 10 riles.... Heck I have a Mark5 340 Wheaterby from the 1970s.

    I've got one handgun out on loan to a friend in a bit of a 'predicament' right now. The one that I've still got ready to go here
    actually _IS_ probably my first borderline 'frivolous' firearm purchase, although I can justify it, anyway. ;) The one I'm talking about is an
    Uberti .451 blackpowder revolver, the 18xx Colt reproduction 'Dragoon'.
    I still haven't shot it, thanks to all of the financial problems that
    I've had lately, lack of adequate transportation, and relocation to a
    new area where I don't even know the location of a range, yet.
    I can justify it, though, because it gives me an excuse to have
    black powder & primer caps around (nobody can debate that those can be
    useful even without a firearm to pack them in), and you don't need to
    find reloading equipment and usable brass. All you need are .451 casted spherical musketballs of a suitable dense material. While it's a
    bastard if you're in a fight that takes more than 6 shots to finish, it
    might be there, and usable, long after your standard rifle & shotgun
    loads are depleted.
    I've had 2x9mm semiautos, and one Makarov 9x18 that I really miss dearly. The 9mm that I've got right now was boughten so low budget that
    it's not even a piece that I can field strip. When it's time to clean
    anything more than a barrel/chamber brushing, that sucker is coming
    apart to every last screw and spring. You'll need a manual and a lot of
    table space in order to ever have a hope of getting it back together.
    But, until I've got more money, it's kept my back covered.
    I've had 4 7.62mm chambered Chinese SKSes, all with the replacement/non-sharpening 'trident' swiveling bayonets and combat
    slings. I don't joke with people about having it on there to stab my
    deer with. I've got a bow for deer; this is for defense as a combat
    rifle.
    I've had a .50cal muzzleloader, this one being one of the
    conical tapered w/plastic wadding collar round ones; nice weapon, but
    don't expect it to last through a wet period.
    I've got a 20ga pump shotgun, that my grandfather used to hunt
    with when he was a kid, and my father did, as well. I'm going to be refinishing and rebluing that one soon. Might shorten the barrel a bit
    at that point, too. I don't think I'll be taking that weapon out for
    birds again. I'll be using a bigger ga gun for that, should I have the disposable income for it in the future.
    I've also got a 2.5in shell gobbling single-action .410 shotgun.
    I love that little thing. First long gun I ever fired. It's the .22 of shotguns. It's another one that my grandfather & father used in their childhoods. Firing pin keeps falling out of it, so it's out of
    commission right now from the last time I had one put in and lost it in
    the field the first time I took it out afterwards. I want to refinish
    and reblue this one, as well, although I'm almost hesitant to take the
    original finish off, chipped as it is. It's a beautiful cherry or even
    darker, but more reddish, not mahogany, stock. I value it unchanged for
    its sentimental purposes, but it would be REALLY nice to have a piece
    that fits in one hand, or one pocket, that ends up being a small sawed
    off shotgun.

    My let me know want you all have collected...over the years?

    How about yourself, good sir? I just gave my WWII bayonet to my fiancee on her last birthday here, or I'd add that to my list. Had to liquidate all of my swords, too, but I'll be getting more at some point
    in the future. Used to have sai and some other neat things, too.

    Guh up the effbomb down wif yr bad self; seriously. That means 'shut
    the effbomb up, in the parlance of the first child I raised from birth
    on . . . I recommend it because my patience with people that are only
    interested in passing judgement and making pointless jabs without
    knowing the exact facts about what they're dealing with is waning.
    Consider yrself warned.

    I actually just purchased my first gun, at 37. It's tough living in California. I've now been bitten by the bug and have already purchase an 80% lower and plan on taking my time and building a nice rifle next. I currently only have an H&K USP 9mm but it shoots great, and I'm now at the range every Sunday. My new religion you could say!

    Good going on the 80% lower! I built my AR for slightly less than $400, utilizing a polymer lower. Only thing lacking when I was done were mags
    and a rear sight. I mounted a budget red/green dot on it, and will pick up
    a rear backup sight when I see one locally at a good price.

    When you got your lower did you also receive a guide for drilling/milling
    it to make it operable? When you decide to pick up the upper, you might
    want to try out Palmetto State Armory http://palmettostatearmory.com. They have a fairly good selection of barreled upper assemblies, with and without bolt carrier assembly and charging handle. They have weekly specials, I
    picked up a mid-length barreled upper with bolt carrier and charging handle
    for $199.99. It's not the highest quality, but it's good enough for what I intend to use it for, and the sweet thing about the AR platform is that you
    can upgrade it a piece at a time if you outgrow your initial build - but
    I'd rather just build a newer and better gun from scratch. Can't have too
    many AR's!

    Thanks! I didn't pick up the jig for milling as I believe a friend of mine has one, and will hopefully let me use his equipment as well, I got mine from modulusarms.com and it's really a clean lower, and has a nice extended trigger guard built in. And of course at the time I'm writing this, they are getting ready to release a new design of it, so instantly mine's now "old" just like my computer and car I guess.

    How do you like your polymer lower? I'm Very interested in that as well, but have heard mixed reviews. I see that polymer80.com has done some nice upgrades to make things like the mag well a little more beefy which I assume can't hurt.

    Is yours holding up?

    And already I'm wishing you didn't show me palmettostatearmory.com it's like a candy store, and already I see too many things I want to click on lol! Good call! And who doesn't like weekly deals!

    I like my lower quite a bit. I got it from Joe Bob Outfitters, their web
    page is at http://www.joeboboutfitters.com. The lower I got is the New Frontier LW-15 GenII. It's very well reviewed and you can see the New
    Frontier torture test videos on YouTube. Just search for New Frontier
    Torture. There are three of them uploaded by NEWFRONTIERARMORY. I paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $109 for the lower, fire control group and adjustable stock.

    Along with the standard collection of .45's .38's and .22's, some of my more unique firearms happen to be a 1908 Colt Vest Pocket 25 auto, a Nagant model 1895 7.62mm revolver, a Remington model 540X .22 LR rifle, and a "Geha" 12- gauge bolt action shotgun. I've also got one of the rarer Ruger 10/22 versions, that being a U.S. Shooting Team commemorative with Talo stock. Have plenty of others, but these are the more unusual items in my collection...

    I keep it simple. A suppressed Ruger SR22 for quietly taking out vermin on
    the farm, a Ruger 10/22 Takedown threaded for same suppressor, Glock 19 (Franken-Glock now, all the internals to include the barrel have been changed out to make it even more accurate and reliable), XDm in 9mm, XD in .45,
    several Para 1911 .45s, a lever-action pistol in .45 LC for shiggles,
    a Steyr Scout Rifle in .308 for when I'm walking around the farm, an M&P AR-15 rifle built to how I used to run mine in the Army, an M1A Carbine in .30cal, and a Dan Wesson .357 revolver that is a tack driver with either
    .38 Special or .357 loads that used to belong to my father and I inherited.
    He had some sort of trigger job done to it so that it has the smoothest double-action I've ever seen on a revolver to date.
    Need to pick up a Remington 870 shotgun in June when I head back to the fun store.
