I was at the gun store and caught my self debating wether to spend my money on a new rifle or a coin I've had my eye on for a while. So anyway, what else do you collect buy? Myself, I have 3 major collections: 1. US silver and gold coins 2. World paper money (specificly WW2 paper money) 3. Firearms Most of my money goes toward coins. Any one else collect things besides guns? Av.

I like collecting old books and coins. Also military patches and insignia, preferrably WWII.

Wow, where to start? Meissen and Dresden porcelains Teapots Victorian antique furniture and artwork Books and vintage periodicals German beer steins Vintage clothing and fabrics WW2 militaria and edged weapons Small Art Nouveau bronzes Skulls (yes, real ones) Seashells Mineral specimens from significant places Fillmore posters Old Japanese silk kimonos 20's, 30's, and 40's steering wheels, hubcaps, horn buttons, and tail lights Mostly I haunt garage sales, yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores for my treasures. I have a 3 story 1892 house to display it all in, and husband says if I bring one more thing home, I must get rid of two things that are already here. [:D]

I didn't know that any porcelain actually survived the bombing of Dresden [:D] Must be very rare indeed.

Since Dresden porcelains date back to the 1700's, and are still being manufactured today, yes, there are many pieces out there. In fact, even war era pieces; as the porcelains are of such high quality, they have been shipped all over the world, then, and now. Run a search on Ebay, and you will see what I mean.

I collect turn of the century fly fishing stuff (hooks, flies, boxes, books), and feathers and fur to feed my my fly tying hobby, and a fairly large collection of contemporary flies. Also I have a fairly large collection of contemporary flies, about half made by their inventors. It's fun, but expensive-aren't all fun things expensive?

Three things.....tried four, but women were the most expensive!! 1. Guns (what else?) - most recent....only have a P99 and a Bushy so far. Eying a sniperized Ruger 10/22 and a custom bolt gun. 2. Computer hardware/software - got about four PC's worth of spare parts lying around 3. Japanese animation - 350+ tapes, 100+ DVDs, WAY too many hours of my life.....

The wife and I collect Randall and other custom knives. She chose to receive a Randall as her engagement gift instead of a ring. There I was, on one knee, holding out a nice stag stainless skinner... I sold my Combat Companion to help finance my M4. Not a bad trade if I do say so myself. Keep your powder dry.

brass. buckets of brass. rifle oil/solvent bottles. theyre cheap, so i can buy stuff at gun shows even when i'm near-broke. i prefer the older metal military ones. currently have one for: m16 (the only plastic one) m1 garand m1 carbine ak47 sks swedish mauser m98 oh, yeah, i have a little stash of pocket calculators, they take up less space than computers.

Movies on DVD & Video, Music on CD & Vinyl And Gun Magazines(bullet holders). Lately it has mostly been DVD's, I just love the quality. I so wish Lucas would release Star Wars on DVD.

DVD's (64 in past year) Pocket Watches - mostly turn of century or older - preferably key wind/set and either silver or gold. Pre WWII Japanese Swords - (does 2 count as a collection yet?) Alcohol (wouldn't ya know it keeps dissappearing?!) Camera Equipment which is almost as expensive as firearms! Lastly, my favorite cheap collection is of Egyptian heiroglyphics of hunting scenes on papyrus which I buy in Times Square when that nice lady was there! (Haven't seen her since 9/11 though [:O])

"Collect" implies some sort of plan or method to acquisition. I tend to "accumulate" things. Guns, stamps, coins, comics...I never throw anything out. It's a constant battle with my wife.

Plastic models - ships, planes, armor, police cars. An addiction of some 35 years. Diecast police and fire vehicles - Road Champs, Code 3, Corgi, etc. An addiction of only 4 or 5 years. Camoflage clothes. Have roughly an entire closet full of it.

For me the topic of this forum should be what you DON'T collect. Over the years I have found myself getting involved in way too many expensive hobbies. Here is a brief list of my vices. 1. Firearms 2. Motorcycles 3. Computers 4. Paintball Stuff 5. RC Cars 6. Tools 7. Hi-End Stereo Equipment 7. Mountain Bikes
