I have some oldish stuff...

 :drool: Man those are awesome :drool: I have a cousin that had a whole lot of them in the early eighties when we were kids and he brought them to church and we sat in the back of church and played Star Wars :D I wonder if he still has them :think: If so he has a pretty good sized collection of them :)

I couldn't find a pic of this one, so I took new ones... (of course I found said pics after I took new ones...) Any ways, my sister gave this one to me in London UK... I think she found it in a market or smth... but it has all the original parts...

Besides multitools.  :multi: I have some SAKs and knives. I have started a flashlight collection with a good Surefire collection.  When I was younger I collected sports cards. I have season sets of TOPPS baseball cards for 5 years. I used to collect Transformers. Especially generation 1 but they became too over priced for me.

Discontinued Al Mar folding knives.
That's enough for me, all other spare money is spent on the shooting range =)

What kind of guns do you have? Pictures would be nice  :)

None =(
Handgun owning is prohibited in Russia ( even shooting ranges have issues with buying them, and they can buy handguns manufactured in Russia only ). Even .22 LR and flobert. Non lethal pistols can be purchased with proper licence, but they're not suitable for training -- they're designed to shoot at something 5-10 meters away, and accuracy is poor.
Bolt-action and semi-auto rifles are available to the hunters only with at least 5 year experience. No Class III at all.

And i don't like shotguns that much to buy it, when i have other matters to attend to. But if everything goes Ok, i'll buy Remington 870.

Till then I rent a gun at a shooting range. ( Even IPSC shooters have to do so =( ).
This model : http://world.guns.ru/handguns/hg145-e.htm
But  Russian variation has magazine capacity limited to 10 rounds.

That was an interesting looking pistol. I use to have a few Soviet guns 2 Mosin 91/30s an ex sniper 91/30 and a 91/59 "Sanitized". Plus a Chinese SKS and a 9mm TT.

I got small collection of Victorinox SAKs.
And I also collect stamps from around the world - nothing fancy just from the mail/packages I receiving (or my friends) - I got one album (32 pages) and I got stamps from a lot of countries. Few months ago I reorder it after years for just adding stamps with no order. I print small flags of each country I have stamps from and I put next to each country flag the stamps from that country. I learned a lot of geography and history from doing so. It was fun but took me few days. I wonder how long it would take if I was a real stamp collector and have few albums / thousands for stamps.

So yah Terry kids do love Hot wheels. Seth plays with them constantly. Unfortunatly He really Likes the Johnny Lightning Pez cars I have/.

Interested in collecting any that are about 10 years old?  I have many Hot Wheels and Johnny Lightnings from that era that I'd like to get rid of.

As mentioned elsewhere, I've been "moving office" over the last week or so, and found my stopwatch collection.

There are several missing though, including a really nice Heuer model, and a German weird thing made by Jungens :( They can't be far away though, so I'm sure I'll find them soon.

I've got 13 here, but I'm sure there's another half dozen somewhere......

Well since this is the Collector's Forum I figured I'd see what all you guys collected :D

I used to collect USA-made pocket knives.  Now, I collect a pension.

Oh yeah - I took that pic in a bit of a rush and didn't notice! Why stop watches? I just like them!

It started when I was looking for a stop watch for coaching my kids' football team, and quickly deciding that the digital ones were crap. So I picked up an old one off ebay, and whilst it was nice, it didn't actually keep very accurate time, so I got another, and then another ....  :P

Some of them are just very nice quality items, and I like that!

I got lucky over a couple years and found some local flea market stalls that had badges,then that dried up,then for a long time couldn't find a source,until I started surfing the 'net.I'm still short,the Gordons,Argyll& Sutherlands,KOSB,Ox & Bucks,Sherwood Foresters,and the Gloucestershire--front and back.

I do need to get another badge for the KRR.I had one and gave it to an old acquaintance of mine,who had served in a Territorial battalion of the KRR,then went on to be a F/O in the RAF.In return he gave me his cloth pilot's wings---more than fair trade there.

Maybe you and Grant should join forces, then see what you can pick up over here :)

Ironically the Argyll& Sutherlands are one of my counties regiments, despite hailing from Scotland!

And that from a county that was linked to the Buffs! Pontius Pilate's Bodyguard :D BTW the KRR was nicknamed the Kaiser's Bodyguard,partly because it's badge was Maltese Cross shaped,and also pre-1914 the Kaiser was honorary Colonel of the Reg't.Another little piece of history to tuck away for future reference: My friend,that I traded with;flew Tiffies in 181 Sqn. He tolds me that Tiffie drivers ALWAYS flew with oxygen masks on,because Tiffies profusely leaked carbon monoxide  into the cockpits.

If you can send me pictures or links of what you're looking for I'll have a hunt upstairs.

Seriously, I have a load of new old stock military badges dating back to before WW1.  They were lurking in the basement of my father-in-law's shop.

I can't make out from the small picture exactly what that is, but I certainly have a few similar to that. A few are NATO issue, including Navy torpedo run timers etc. They have 3 and 6 second sweeps.
