LMAO!!!! I think I'll test my new knife BY SHOOTING IT!
I'm suprised it too the .380's so well. Thats some impact for it to survive.

How about some ppictures of your weapons?

Haha, I'll take some pics later and psot them up.

Kinda boring though, just 2 survival knives, a Gladius machete, 24" latin machete and trench hawk. The Trench Hawk and Latin machete are at my friends house just now though. (He has loads of farmland so often practice bushcraft there) I'll get pics of the other 3 though.

I collect CDs, and I'm starting to collect vinyl LPs too - I'm a staunch believer in music-as-a-physical-format. Aside from that, I collect empty Jagermeister bottles, which is something I believe many people do.

Also, large 500ml energy-drink cans - I had an empty shelf and couldn't find anything colourful to put on it, so it ended up being what was readily available.

When I was younger I collected AFL (Aussie Rules Football) player cards.

For those who don't know what Aussie Rules is:

I collect coins, none are worth anything I just like ones that I find interesting. My partners younger brother collects energy drink cans. He has probably 150 at least, none of them are the same. He drinks them first though, so they're not worth anything. But whenever my partner and I go anywhere, we always get him new ones :)

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

I collect clocks. I had a wall of clocks in my old place. I would put batteries in all of them and set them to different times. 30 ticking clocks that are not in time with one another would drive people crazy.

i have an extensive rock collection. different types, shapes and sizes. every one has a story (i even have a piece of the berlin wall)
i also have a smaller heart shaped rock collection which is very cool to pretty much no one but me, but i still collect them
i also collect hard cover books, only those that i would read or have read however. i now have over two thousand books in my library and i'm hoping to double it before it die. my books will be willed to a women's prison or shelter of some sort

SNAP!

My missus recently went MENTAL when I pulled about 20 off the kitchen cupboard, sorted and put them in a box of around 60, then brought in 20 from the garage ready to go up in the loft with the rest of em.

You interested in selling that DeLorean?

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.

That delorean is cheap - a buck a target. Metal frame, plastic bottom.

I have a "back to the future" delorean on order from http://www.hotwheelscollectors.com/ and they also have a nice delorean there too. There's also ebay.

lol  lot's of interesting collections.  People's collections seem to tell a lot about them.. in a way.    .. Sarah_444 mentioned sea glass.. i have a little collection of Great Lakes glass :)   ..  'we' have various collected rocks and fossils.  I have some Irish sandstone...  she has a cobblestone from a London street.. we have a piece of rock cracked in two by california dessert heating and freezing..         Lol  .. sounds sort of silly when i talk about it.. but they are precious to us.
i have an old vinyl record collection that some people would  probably kill for... so..  shhhhhhhhhh
