Crowz, I only want to know the secret you are using to get so many cars. I can't even sneak one extra gun into the house without the wife noticing, let alone something the size of a car..

The plan is to keep it indefinitely — learn it inside and out. Appreciate the quirks for what it is. Be able to recognize when you’re in over your head and replace it accordingly. But thankfully with the guys here, we’re never in too bad of shape. Exceptions applying of course.

Well the wife, family and our friends all say I have an addiction problem with vehicles and need an intervention at times.

I'm much better now though !

I owned over 200 at one time and I'm down to 20 something these days

I see...

So all I have to do is buy another belt fed and a couple of cheap ones and get rid of the cheap ones...

Where is the evil laugh emoji when I need it?!?

Bought my 02 for the wife just over a year ago with about 70 k miles on it from the original owner.I'm up for retirement in about a year and hope that it will at least last until then.Likely be down to one vehicle at that point(MY 15 Hemi Ram CC 4X4).

Goal is 250k miles, or until kid #2 is out of college in a few years, whichever comes first. Ordered it/bought it new in 01.

I like your thinking EODguy. I would happily dump a couple of AR's for a M134D.

With gun stuff in the news these days I will stick with I lost them all years ago in a freak boating accident

I USED to have a nice collection....

One of the favorites WAS a mega star .45 and a desert eagle with the multi cal kit.

Mine WAS mostly handguns with around 10 or so. Not much in the long barrel section.
