I realized that I have no chronological history of when I added to my collection or what I was thinking at the time. This blog will contain entries for each new item I acquire.  It will also occasionally contain a bit of information that some of you might find useful, someday.  Honestly, it is odd and wonderful when I receive email from visitors who are asking about one of my weapons, or telling me about theirs, or thanking me for some bit of info that they found.  That's nice.  

But here is also a reminder:  This web site is intended for my use.  It is my extended memory.  Everything else is a bonus.

Now I'm going to do a time warp thing and add backdated posts for the last half dozen or so additions to my collection.
