I collect Green Paper Money and when I have enough I swap it for guns and ammo.

We, the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.
Don't judge me. I collected shoes. Nike SB dunk lows. They are usually modelled after something, beer types, drinks, comic book characters etc. I have about 100 pairs and like that it is something I can actually use. As of late I have started focusing on what I consider more practical things that still give me joy, preparedness items, guns, ammo, survival gear etc. Not so much of a collection in that it sits in a case, but things to be used if need be. I don't like buying stuff merely to look at, other than a TV. You guys and gals have cool stuff!

No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessness of aim with the first shot.

Nothing at the moment. If I were to collect something it would be boots, cowboy ,motorcycle, etc. Anybody have a boot collection?

When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.
I have a modest coin collection that began when I was just a lad. Now though I mostly collect annual Proof Sets from the US Mint and Canadian Specimen Sets.
I also collect Native American stone tools, also known as "arrowheads." I have a small collection of surface finds and ones that others have found and gave to me. The last one that I found was in the place where an old house from the 1800's had been demolished I was checking out while working. It was resting comfortably in a deer track right next to my foot. I also collect the hard stone axes and celts.

I'm trying to collect money but it's not going very well. I think the firearm collection has something to do with it.
I collect records. I have around 9000 and around 1500 45s from all different kinds of music.
I love to collect razors and shaving brushes, kind of hard in WV, there aren't a lot of antique shops. Just a bunch of pawn shops stacked full of junk. My favorite razor is my grandpas old merkur razor. I still shave with it sometimes
