You only have 10? (just kidding)
I do not have even half of this number…
I invest more in ammo than in guns
I am older than you so I have been collecting them longer (well it sounded like a good excuse)
I think it’s more about the money… not age
But… who knows, maybe I will turn my basement into a small storage soon?
I think I might see one or two there I don’t have yet. ( again just joking)
War gaming on table top mostly Warhammer 40k, Battletech as well. For anyone who knows anything about 40k I have/had (been selling for quite some time) the entire Ulthwe Craftworld. Back in early 90’s when Magic the Gathering was first getting started, WoTC started another card game called Battletech the TCG. They had smaller tournaments and I was the number 1 ELO ranked player in the world (it’s the ranking system used by chess players and Magic the Gathering players) anyways I won alot of tournaments and alot of times some of the prize was in store credit and collectible artwork from the Battletech card game, so I used the in store credit and prize money to buy Eldar and eventually got Games Workshop to give me what they considered the " definitive" Eldar army for the Ulthwe Craftworld. So now I have an entire floor of my house filled top to bottom with basically figures that be put together and painted, and I am not feeling that at all. So I’m chatting on the forums one day and from nowhere this guy offers to paint them and put them together in exchange for some memoribilia, a couple case boxes of cards, and my help prepping for tournaments. He became one of my best friends and weirdly we lived like 30 minutes away.
He was a good man
Sir. You have to send me your basement’s address . I’ll bring whisky / tequila (whatever you prefer) and we can spend weeks there talking about guns (shooting range required for such discussion)

I’m going to have to try that recipe, @Sneezy! It’s now saved to my phone for making on Thanksgiving weekend!
Yow @RocketPak you must be a master gamer! I’m not worthy to even stand in your shadow!
I just don’t think I relationship has gotten to the point where I can click on this yet.
No, I mostly suck at gaming. I don’t do any online stuff as I like story driven content. But I do like what I’m playing to look good.
Not sure I NEED that rig for WoW but I bet it would be fun
My youngest son who is a White Hat Hacker (what ever that is) walked in while I had these pics up.
Him: That’s a serious game system.
Me He said he sux at gaming
Him Oh then he’s a bit coin miner
Me: Whats a Bit Coin?
Him: Your retirement, or my college debt I bought you 20 of them when they were $5.00 each
Me; What are they worth now?
Him: (Out comes his phone) $8,400 ish
That’s going to take a mighty Damned big boat to have that big an “accident”
One last but " Damn just Damn"
lol, Not a bitcoin miner. Just been building gaming PC’s since a kid. I do like to play games and in high quality. I just don’t do any online games. Mostly the main open world RPG’s (Fallout series, Mass effect, Dragon Age, GTA5[offline], Just Cause, etc)
I gave up on games after DOOM. My wife did get me a PS2 in 2000 because it came with an external screen and played video on CD’s so she could send me video of my boys while I was out and about doing my thing. It came with Navy SEAL’s , I don’t think I finished the first level. TV, Video and games are just not my gig.
I’ve always done a family show, nothing over-the-line in there
and just remember, I’m somebody’s great grandmother, how much trouble can I be?
We met and had dinner together remember? Dont try to pull a fast one me
but really, I spent more than 20 years dancing in family-style greek and mediteranian restaurants - it is a family show… same for all the pics on the website. Just sayin’
