I collect past due accounts, man that sucks.
Also try to collect old money, the "blue" color silver certificates, and currency with the red ink. It's been awhile sense I have seen any to nab.
An ounce of lead is worth 200lbs of cop.
formerly collected Star Trek & Star Wars stuff (quit when the 'original crew was put out to pasture in '91 & when Episodes I - III came out, respectively.)
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

I collect a bunch of things: comic books, when I got married and moved into this house I found my old comic book collection from when I was a kid. I decided to box and bag them properly so I stopped at a local shop to get what I needed. My collection has tripled since then....
Shot glasses- everytime I go TDY or PCS I grab a shot glass. My best friend from back home has this huge collection and first time I went TDY I sent him one for his collection, and brought one back for myself. Ever since then it's just continued.....
Books- I love to read, back home I've got most of my stuff in storage, and most of that is books or book shelves...
And finally beer bottle caps- two years ago I was supposed to go to Iraq, but something came up and I was pulled from the deployment at the last minute. Well somehow we started collecting bottle caps for him and when he came back we gave him a table we had made using the bottle caps as the top. Well I would like to build a bar in my house, and I would like the top to be made out of bottle caps. The rules are only good beers (no Bud, Coors, MGD....) and I had to drink them. So far I'm running at about a thousand caps.
It takes a college degree to break'em;
and a high school education to fix'em!
I collect knives, but that's been mostly stopped since I got married. I can't justify spending the money on them now.
I also collect old cameras and vintage handbags, mostly the german silver mesh bags from the 1800's.
Lima, you'd love the world market down here. They have a loose leaf tea aisle. I love loose leaf tea.
