This is a discussion on What do you collect, other than guns? within the Bob & Terry's Place forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Vintage razors....
My opinion shouldn't be taken seriously due to the fact that I've been shooting guns for over 30 years and have only recently been active on gun forums, where all the real world knowledge apparently is.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Some might say I collect dogs (with 5 here), I'd say I collect "land mines" from the back yard!

My thoughts. If I can ever get the time
I make and collect fountain pens, ballpoint pens, and rollerball pens. I also collect baseball cards with an emphasis on Texas Rangers.
Ammo, knives, some coins, nascar diecast, tools.
The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
I have 2 Antique Volkswagen Bugs (1962 Hippymobile and a 1963 Herbie the Love Bug). I have sold my 1964 Karman Ghia and my 1979 Corvette.
My Dad bought Herbie in April of 1966 and was our family car when I was growing up. My parents brought me home from the hospital when I was born in that car. Literally the first car I ever rode in. It took me 3 years to restore it.
The Hippy Bug is my retro nostalgia project that I'm painting free hand and doing all of the stuff myself. It rolls together my love of old cars, VWs, 60s music, 60s art, and painting.
I then decided it was much easier to collect Hotwheels and Matchbox VW Bugs than the life size. I have about 200 different ones dating from the late 60s to today. The pics attached are just a very small sample of my display (in my man room, with all of my car trophies and other tacky stuff).

Know Guns, Know Safety, Know Peace.
No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
I'd love to see some. I really love the exotic materials used. I bought my husband a buffalo horn one, and he uses it for work.I make and collect fountain pens, ballpoint pens, and rollerball pens.
Here's some of my camera collection. These are just some of the Kodaks; I took this picture when the company folded.
Here's one of my favorites, a Mercury II. It's 1/2 35mm with a rotary shutter.

And one more for ammo.
