    Keep chipping away... year after year and you'll get there. I'm sure you'll add a few or drop a few to the "wish list" along the way too.

    Yeah, it has been modified a few times over time. It is quite an ambitious list, and some are really just for keepsakes, such as the M1 and M14, the CQBP, etc., but I'd like to have them. Would also like to have a few originals like a 1940s era US Army issue 1911, maybe a 1969 Belgium stamped BHP, etc. But this is the current list.

    I've actually owned a BHP made in 1969 stamped Belgium, and sold it. Wish I had that one back! I also traded my Sig MK25 for the Glocks b/c money was tight, and I knew I shot better with the Glocks for EDC. I also had a M&P 9 and 45 as well, but traded them here and there to get things I wanted at the time. I'll get'em back in time, but at least I know what I want now.

    That little M&P 15 Sport is one fine rifle and my favorite AR. I installed a Geissele SSA trigger and a Magpul handguard and vertical grip. The SSA trigger is the bomb and I highly recommend it for this rifle.

    I wouldn't advertise my collection, most were lost in a boating accident years ago.

    As already stated, not a wise thing to do, in regards to making a public statement as to what you have.

    The internet is a strange place, and tends to attract even stranger people.

    I really need a S&W 1911 .45 ACP. I think I would buy a life preserver for it to avoid any boating accidents.

    It was a joke, as to my statement (what collection), but I didn't list everything. However, I'm not too concerned about people knowing what I have. I've broken no laws and have nothing to hide. I'm very well aware of the Internet and all the dangers lurking. I've been around.

    Famous last words of countless victims of oppression.... among others. I can't tell you how many times I have heard and read people say that when the discussion comes up of showing an ID to a police officer when asked (not demanded). Or letting an LEO search your car when he asks, "You don't mind if I take a look in your car do you"?

    Sure, but there is no sense in living in fear.

    No my friend, it's not necessarily fear. It's asserting one's rights.

    I'm not sure I follow, but it's ok. I really don't think I have anything to worry about wrt this thread or forum. It isn't a matter of national security (at this point), and I don't go around sharing private information about myself or family where it matters. This forum provides a certain anonymity where a local meeting hall would not. Besides, if the "gov" really wants to know what I have, they will find out.

    I was riding with a friend of mine when he was pulled over for speeding one day. The officer took his license and when he returned he asked if my friend had any weapons in the car. My friend confessed that yes he did and that he has his carry permit. The officer went off because my friend didn't immediately tell him he had a loaded weapon in the car and said he could confiscate his weapon. My friend wasn't trying to hide anything just forgot that he supposed to immediately proclaim he has weapon in car. Anyway the officer let it go with a speeding ticket and a stern warning about his firearm. I was left with an understanding that there are very few secrets anymore. Information about everything moves at the speed of light. The officer was able to tell by running his license that he had his CCW and more than likely had a weapon. I would have to say unless you are buying guns in an illegal manner there is record of it somewhere that is not hard to find. I think its safe to say that everyone on this forum owns a gun. I have seen several pictures of very nice guns with no worry of someone disclosing what they have.

    Actually, the officer could not have legally confiscated the weapon based on this premise. Had an officer pulled that with me, I would have very likely stated that in a respectful manner; however, I'm not one to mix it up with LEOs. I understand they do a very dangerous job, and I usually give them lattitude. I have never had any problems with LEOs and I hope to maintain that record. But I agree, rustygun, that it isn't a secret. We all have guns, and I've seen several times multiple people stating how many of certain guns they have on this forum, along with the really nice pics, which I always enjoy. It's just that some folks have aversions to certain things, which is fine. No harm, no foul. This is a pretty good forum with good posters for the most part, and we have a pretty alert moderation staff that stays on top of junk. I like it here, and I think that's pretty clear.

    I must assume that Ohio is a "must inform state" from your post. My state is not. We don't have to tell an LEO that we have a firearm in our possession when stopped. My personal opinion with this is that I weigh such matters on a case by case situation. If I believe that it is in my better interests to inform, I will do that. If not, I'm not sure and I say this because I so rarely get stopped for anything that I don't really have a track record on which to fall back. I haven't had a moving violation since April 1971 and have only been stopped twice since then. The first time was in 2000 and the officer was in error an apologized profusely. The second time, I am convinced the officer was in training and I was his "victim"... nothing came of that one either. In both of those cases I did inform.

    Best thing to do if you are unlucky enough to encounter an LEO with some serious attitude problems is to NOT ruffle his feathers. Be the nice little subservient citizen and let him have his way. Then after it is over, head straight to his precinct and file a complaint. Make his life miserable. Out him. And if needed, sue the bastard and his department. We don't need public servants like this and the more we can get rid of, the better. Make them understand who their real bosses are.

    In the case of private sales, the government is not going to know and that is a good thing.

    As far as these forums on this site being good ones, I totally agree. The people here are civil, respectful, and very helpful. Some sites could learn a lot from what goes on here on this one. I can only recall one poster who was a problem child and a bit obnoxious. Haven't seen him around in some time. Most everyone else is top drawer in my opinion.

    I totally agree it is a good thing that the government not know all our goings on. It simply is none of their business! And agree with your assessment.
