Collectables, Memorabilia and Heirlooms

5 posts in this topic

I'm a bit of a collector,

And over the years i've collected a fair few special things.

Some of the coolest are:

A pair of screen used Flight tickets from "Lost"

2 strips of film from the original "Terminator 2" signed by Arnie

2 strips of film form the original "Shaun of the dead"

A mint condition WW2 German gas mask

The bolt lock from a nazi bunker

A handmade Claymore sword

A de-activated "Mauser" german handgun

A clip from an AK-47 that was used by insurgents in a gunfight with US troops in Helmand Province

Multiple Knifes and swords (Katana, butterfly knife, replica short sword)

(Almost) Every games console ever made :D :D :D

(People tend to doubt my ownership so i'll get a photo linked soon as )

Anyone else got any notably cool collectable type stuff?

Why do you think weapons are 'cool'? How is your life altered/enhanced by the ownership of those items?

Also, it's interesting don't you think, that given your definition of 'cool' no-one has added to this topic?

Well I have a stupid growing collection of Radio Control Helicopters.

I have a Colt .45 made in 1874, in great condition. That model, the Single Action Army, was inroduced in 1873, so it's a very early model. It's been in our family for more than 80 years.

My great uncle Henry was a logger, and took it from the camp cook in lieu of $20 owed him. When my father turned 16 in 1931, Uncle Henry gave it to him.

The camp cook used it about 1920 to defend his life, shooting two burglars breaking into the camp kitchen. One died on the spot, the other staggered to a horse and rode off. The horse was found riderless, so he likely died in the saddle and rolled off into the thick undergrowth.

Without that old "Colt Peacemaker," the camp cook would have been murdered by the burglars.

It's been fired on occasion through the years, at tin cans and paper targets. The last time it was fired was about 25 years ago.

It's just a nice, old Colt with an interesting story -- and at one point it saved a man's life.
