    For those of you without children or grandchildren interested in your hobbies, it is wise to plan and find a person you can trust. Most spouses have no idea of the value of our toys.
    a silver sietz is one heck of a gift. should bring $10,000+ on a very bad day.

    I started last month by giving each of my two sons 14 lond guns each. I am 72 and thought they could use them now and not once after I passed. Each got a M1 Grand, a M1 Carbine, muzzle loaders, bolt action rifles I had put together and a few shot guns. I am down to 8 long guns, one for deer hunting, two muzzle loaders and a AR-15 and a few 22 rifles I have built for bench rest shooting.
    It is funny how fast we get old, well maybe I can hunt for a few more years.

    I was supposed to keep an FT-1000 Yaesu radio($1200) and the other a Yaesu FT-2000($1600) for myself. I refused and instead told them some of the antenna cable that would have ended up being scrapped for copper was fine since I can always use it and am using it. Stuff that would be hard to find a local buyer for and impossible to ship(7/8" heliax doesn't roll well without a machine). All under 100' pieces so not many could use them but none of my towers are over 35' so perfect for my use.
