And if we are going to talk about wants, this is one I want
IWI Jericho 941F Handgun, 9mm, Brushed Steel w/Police Star
View attachment 26929
I saw those at Classic Arms, I've been thinking about one too. On the Colt I wasn't sure about the picture, the Commanders had different stamps from the Government (70 Series billboard lettering). I love the Commercial era and 70 Series. I've had issues with some 80 Series.

I was getting ready to dig out my small collection of Automatic Transmission Fluid containers from the garage until carlomarx spelled it out... nana

Actually, I collect and shoot old bolt action military surplus rifles, mostly 1890's through 1960's.

Mine are all tools for harvesting various sizes of game. Not a gun hobbyist. Here’s a pic of a few, my others are all stashed around the homestead or at various cabins.

Right now we have an old open sight .22 bolt action, a new .22 bolt action with leupold scope, my grandfather’s .30-06 from the 40’s, a .270 my dad gave me, my first ever gun a .243 winchester (took my first caribou with it when I was 11) and my moose/bear stick, a Model 70 .300 Win Mag that used to be my father’s. All the bigguns have Leupolds.

Also have a browning semi 12GA, an old single shot crack barrel 16GA, and a benelli 20GA. And an old open sight .300 savage out one of our cabins for ballsy black bears.

Also pictured here is my wife shooting our only pistol. A .45 revolver that will also shoot .410 shells. Not this house MFs!!!!

Coincidentally, my tobacco dresser and cellar totes are right next to the guns.

I’ve got a 1945 Springfield Garand all correct. 30-06 is the only round I’ve seen send a mushroom cloud up off the berm at the range. 🍄 💥

you probably grew your beard after that first shot.

Hahaha, that is probably less than 1% of the books in our house. We have 6 of those bookshelves, two floor to ceiling ones, and our tv is surrounded floor to ceiling by inset bookshelves. And then theres the 15 or so cardboard boxes in the garage. I am a bookworm that married a bookworm and we refuse to throw any of them away. We are word hoarders.

Same here. Bookshelves and vertical stacks of books and boxes for overflow. The words “used book sale” are sweet music. Now I just need to expand the concept to tobacco and get a dresser full like yours.

Dude we had a 7.0 earthquake here in late 2018, and a huge local used bookstore (Coincidentally called “Title Wave”) let everyone go through the store before they reshelved everything. All books $1.

I almost shit my pants I ran to the car so fast. I was digging through those piles like a methed out homeless dude at the dump. It was pure heaven.

You should have dived into them like Scrooge McDuck.

Haha those are actually little homemade emergency stoves. They have a mixture of sawdust and candle wax, topped by a vaseline covered cotton ball and another layer of wax.

You can literally float them in water (they float) or even dunk them. All you have to do is scratch at that cotton and they’ll light up immediately and burn for 20 minutes +
