I acquired Springfield model 1911 that was made in 1915 earlier in the week. So of course I got rid of a Colt that never really grew on me and purchased a modern Springfield 1911 today. Something spoke to me and said I had to have the new one, too

I just got back from shopping. Changed my whole dinner plans around, which was fine by me. On the way home I was following a car with the license plate SUE CHEF. I thought that was pretty cool. You're only allowed seven, but then again her name might have been Sue.
I was like that with guns when i was younger.. sunglasses are way cheaper..

That's funny. I used to have a dozen pair of sunglasses I'd rotate through when I was younger. Some freebies, some over $100.
I guess tastes change

I prefer not to collect anything. It all has to be dusted. When I buy something, it has to have a purpose and be useful. But my daughter had other ideas. She started a collection of very expensive crystal items that all have a meaning to my life. Of course they all have to be dusted. So I immediately got a small closed cabinet for them. I never open the door and they stay nice and clean. Of course it has already been decided that they will go back to her when I die. She will continue to add to them for her daughter.

I HATE dusting, Addie. I used to be so good at it, too. At least as far as doing it regularly. Thank heavens for Swiffers, lol.

I've got two M1's, Q. A WWII issue Springfield and a Winchester M1D (sniper). I'd like to have back some of my handguns from the eighties though... I guess there are always things you wish you still had...
Do you still have any milsurps?
Do you have any you want to get rid of any?

Russian SVT40. I love it, too, especially with the Arctic birch stock. You almost need two sets of muffs when you shoot it though. It goes bang... LOUDLY, lol.
The Holy grail is on top though. A Walther K43. Only 125,000 made and that has the waffenampts all over it.

The only one I really wish I still had (ex got it and several others) is this riot shotgun:
