I have been watching for a bit, and decided to go ahead and join the group. I find it really amazing, all of the flak that most here have to go through just to own a certain type of weapon. Keep up the good work!! Tony.

Turby, I wouldn't do that:D I have friends living up and down the coast. I have been collecting for 35+yrs and I am very thankful that I do live where you can have pretty much anything you desire. Tony.:)

I apparently did not do things the correct way for the photos to show in the post. I am trying again.

Until he posts pics of his 1966 Ruger 10/22 International Carbine (with original clear plastic roatary magazine) & his 1949 Ruger M1 (standard) & his Singer USGI WW2 1911A1 and his late 1945 type 14 Japanese Army pistol I'm not Impressed ...

Turby, nope. It is a simulator can. It looks OK, but I have never fired it so I don't really know how well the extra weight out front would do as far as any type of recoil or muzzle blast. Like about 95% of my collection, I have never chambered a round in them.

Really!! Everyone has their own reasons for buying firearms, I presume the 5% are guns you actually use and keep for home defense / etc. So you enjoy buying safe queens? :)

Turby, I have been collecting for 35+yrs. I still have the very first shotgun my mother and father gave to me when I was a teenager. I also still have the first rifle that I was able to buy myself, when I turned 18. As far as shooting my weapons, about the only thing that I have fired in the last several yrs, is a small .22LR semi-auto, that I keep in my pocket, when I am doing what little bit of yard work I am able to do. Where I live, it is a rural area, and there are several brands of "bad snakes" everything from Eastern Diamond Backs, Cotton Mouths, Coral Snakes, Copperheads, Canebrake Rattle Snakes, Pygmy Rattle Snakes, and a couple of different types of Moccasins. I have reduced their numbers. The main reason that I have not been able to shoot the larger bore weapons, it hurts too much to do so. I was hit head-on at 110+mph, by a drunk driver several yrs ago, and had major trauma to my spine, and have had 12 different spinal surgeries since then. I was forced into early retirement due to the injuries, after 21+yrs LEO career. I guess that you could say that just about everything I have, are safe queens, but I like to think of it actually being more like a climate controlled time capsule for them.

Surgeries are a bad scene (I have to endure another one on my Right eye next week ,and they still offewr no garantees)

Good lord!

First - thank you for serving our communities as a 2nd Amendment supporting retired LE.

Second - that's awful what happened to you! Sorry to hear it - I know you're not here for sympathy, but thanks for sharing your story. I won't ask any more.

Count your blessings every day that you're still here on this earth! :)

Why not? He said that he doesn't shoot them, and if he could use the cash for something else, I'd sell 'em too.

Turby had it right. I have not fired anything in the last several years but a .22, and I decided to let someone else have a chance to own some really neat weapons. I still have more of the same, that will be listed soon.
