How did you get the stick? Were you there and just picked it up?

No, I scoured the internet daily for any info right after it happened. The flag, stick and a bunch of Alex Jones stickers gathered after the fight went up on Ebay. The seller's address was right across the street from Berkley, username "Scavenger" something. After vetting it, I hit the buy it now. It was a lot for a stick, but lumber prices have really gone up since then too.

Stickman knows I have it, I made it available to him if he needed it for court. He didn't.

Won't be much longer before someone says "chief" is cultural appropriation, or worse... Tribes say they take pride in it, but that won't matter.

My Dad would have loved that. E-9 for his last eight years. NCOIC of his last two stations.
‘Chief’ was his name. Didn’t hurt that he was Native American (Chickasaw/Choctaw).

Heck, he used to get stopped by BPS back in the 80’s…
Long time ago.

It’s a clone of the Colt SAA but with a 24.5” barrel from the factory.  Chambered in 9mm flobert it’s designed to be a snake charmer. Stick the long barrel down in the brush to pop a snake or other critters with the equivalent of 9mm rat shot in a rim fire cartridge.   Made in Europe for distribution in uk and a few other places. I’ve only ever seen one and I bought it. Not even easy to find them on the internet. I think they were made in the late 70’s??

Returning from Bright Star in either '85 or '87, our Squadron left a couple of Hercs and crews at RAF Lyneham for about a week to do interfly with our Sister Squadron, Seventy Squadron.  They had position-correct RAF name tags and Sq patches for each of us.  In addition to the training, they took us on a pub crawl in Oxford, hitting a lot of the old pubs in town.  Fun times.

Some really, really awesome contributions here so far. Nothing i have is as spectacular, but two things I'm proud of.

One is a round stone. It is what they call a "chunkee" stone. One of those and a spear were used in an ancient Indian gambling game. Apparently the player would roll these, then try to stop it with a thrown spear. Sorry no pic. I forgot were i put it. Real similar to this one:

Another thing is a big,  old earthenware whiskey jug. Likely held about 4-5 gallons. It is special to me because my grandfather found it in the Brazos river when he was a kid. That would have been around 1910. The old jug might have been much older. No pic, it's stored away, but this pic found online is real similar.

Not sure if it's cool but my Grandpa in law gave it to me. He was in the Air Force but worked on a lot of ships, including mothballing/museumafying the USS Iowa. I'm not sure if this is from that time but I need to ask him.
