I love Microtech, Strider and Mad Dog , but just can't afford them so I settle for looking and drooling at pictures. What do you have? do you have pics?

I'm not really a collector, I just enjoy them. I've got a couple of spiderco knives, but that's it.

I wish I could afford to collect knives. I own about 15 different ones. All of my recent purchases have been C.R.K.T. tactical style knives. They are the best value I can find...

Thanks for sharing, that's a nice collection you have there. I just got a Microtech OTF, it's the Exodus model, paid 350 for the thing and I already have scratches all over the blade, that's my problem, can't keep anything untouched or under lock and key, just like to use them.

Heh, Thats what everyone says. Just in case dawn of the dead is on the horizon or China invades, were good to go!

When we show people the "apartment armory" depending on how well they know us, they are either are either comforted or scared S#!%less. The airsoft guns, indistinguishable from the real steel (minus the trigger/breech locks) add a "WTF" factor. I'm not as big time as my roommate when it comes to collecting firearms, knives & surefires, maybe it's because I have a few other hobbies (aka Yotatech) but together we've got a nice cache.

I have some funny pics of another friend playing around with his Surefire Beast. Ill post em when I get em.

I have pictures of my buddy's new AR-15 (SDPD so he's allowed). Unfortunately, I'm still in the middle of recovering from my reformat so it'll be a while before I can post those. Awesome rifle though!
