Oddly enough, nails. As in loose nails. I have hundreds of pounds of them around.
I use air nailers or cordless now. I might use a couple handful of loose nails a year.
With screws being used more and more, they may soon become antiques!

Yes I haven't pounded a nail in a long time.

I use screws all the time.

Vehicles. What with commuter cars, hunting trucks, and all the kids' cars/trucks, it's like a used car lot around this joint. Big Grin

I wish I had a good answer for this but honestly, I don't have such riches to brag about. I regularly cull the 'herd' around here for the sake of storage space. That said, I am often wishing I HAD more of some things: Like land, money, guns, tools, bacon, etc....

But no lack of memories. The most important asset.

I, too, have a lot of bullets. We are moving soon to a new home and I’ve been packing my reloading room, being a curious sort I decided to weigh bullets by caliber. I had 127 lbs of .474 and .505 bullets. Total weight of all calibers over 400 lbs! Some might think that is too many, not me.
Lots of memories, too, and I hope to add to the memories.

Busted stuff that I'd thought I'd fix. Three Briggs and Stratton #6 motors, one of which has a stuck exhaust valve and none of which has an unrusted gas tank.
Too many somnolent computers, that might still harbor good parts (or might not). Nuts and bolts in coffee cans, sometimes the right size.

About 15 years ago, my buddy who worked for me before he died was an electronic whiz. When he passed his office was FULL of electronic components, A ton of parts from Radio Shack still in the pkg. w/ the price tag. It was enough to fill the bed of my pick-up. !st I called Habitat For Humanities to see if they were interested. They said, just bring it by + we'll look at it + see if we're interested. EXCUSE ME? NO! Get off your dead ass + come look at it here! Of course they wouldn't do that; it requires work. So I loaded up the bed of my truck + took it to Goodwill, they wouldn't take it either. This was before I to on the internet as now I'm sure I could find someone interested in all that HAM radio + electronics stuff, but after those 2 attempts I just threw everything in the dumpster. A pity really as I KNOW that someone out there would have been glad to take possession.

Thinking back on it, it must have been closer to 20 years ago when Dave passed. He was a hoarder. He filled up the attic of the shop with old broken TV sets,etc. + his property next door was an appliance graveyard. He said, I'm keeping all this for parts. C'mon, we haven't used tube TVs in years + all these crapped appliances are just an eyesore+ rattlesnake haven. When he died it took us months to haul off all his stuff. In his house was enough Ezra Brooks Whiskey bottles that it took 3 dumpster loads to haul them off.

colin, I've got quite a collection myself as I am a member of the South Austin Museum that has all of the original posters from the hey-day of the Armadillo World Headquarters. also one of my friends + fellow member was involved in cleaning out the old Skyline bar on north lamar several years ago when they shut down. He had boxes of canceled checks from the performers (signed on the back) from Hank Williams,Johnny Horton, + just about every C+W music star that played there between 1950 + approx. 1995. Those have to be worth some money. Artley has been around Austin for quite some time. Actually he was at U.T when Charlie Whitman did his killing spree + even went under fire to help drag people to cover. They recently made a documentary about that day + he is one of the speakers in it.

I am helping the son of a friend who passed away clean out the place.

I took to the salvage yard 270lbs of nails and bolts ect that were stored in coffee cans.

We filled two 20 yard dumpsters so far.

We tried selling some stuff very little luck.

The only thing they didn't have a lot of was guns and ammo.

Empty shell casings.

I might reload .308 again. I might reload 25-06 again. I will reload more 300 WSM and .41 Mag. I'm never going to reload 375 H&H, but I can't bring myself to throw them out.

Ken, I can relate to that. I have more brass than Carter has liver pills. Years ago when my boys were little, a bunch of us were using my range in the valley + didn't want to take the time to police the brass then. So I asked my 4 year old to go pick up the brass the next day + I would pay him a penny apiece. He came up a couple of hours later grinning + had a dbl. handful of 22 LR brass. Of course I paid him but made a mental note to be more specific in the future.

Norman, That .22 hulls story struck a nerve.

I had a small garden many years ago. I let my three-year-old help me harvest some tomatoes and banana peppers one evening for dinner. Next day when I got home, my wife told me I better go look at my garden. My son had harvested everything from the size of your little fingernail on up.

My bad! Being more specific certainly would have helped.

Ken, right, + you can't punish or berate them (not if you're any decent person), they really thought they were helping. We were the adults (?) Not being specific is our fault.
Vaughn, point taken. I'm glad that I had enough to keep sending you some when the P.O. kept screwing up + SOMEONE was stealing the lead. Even though all those boxes were insured, did you ever get anything back from the USPS? I doubt it.

Got absolutely nothing back from USPS. I really think that some corrupt dimwit thought that those ingots were silver bars! rotflmo Sure hoped that they licked their fingers each and every time that they played with their 'fortune'! clap

I've got a slew of knives as well. Seems that when the kids can't think of anything else to get me, they buy another pocketnife. I only carry my old Buck automatic + even though a friend bought me a Randle sheath knife w/ my name engraved on it, I still carry my old Puma White Hunter when hunting.

I have more rifles than I'll ever actually use. Certainly more than I'll ever take to Africa. I have more taxidermy than I have a place to hang. I have more homes than I can live in and I have more vehicles than I can drive at the same time. This post was humbling and thought provoking.

I think a lot of stuff is about to be on the market.

I have a problem of seeing things in things around me people don't.

Until I show them!
