This thread is a bit like an online self help group "I have 30 AEGs, I have a problem. But it's been a month since I added to my collection, and 3 days since I caught myself looking at Hong Kong websites..."

:-)

Would love to describe myself as a skirmisher, but I get out so little these days I might as well be a collector (all going well I will be out in Limerick next week though).

I forgot to add that most people's collections seem to era/theme based e.g. Russian-Afghan, US Vietnam etc.

If you had to group what I own it 2/3 fall into Heckler & Koch replicas (3 x USP variants, MP5, MP7, G36, 416).

There is no method to the madness that is my airsoft collection. I buy what I like, and in some instances what I like to change and turn into a project.

Not going to lie, half of the time the projects are out of boredom - I am (most of the time) not basing the guns off of any real world equivalent, and am just building them to have the features I want, and then matching performance to it.

On the project pile I have:
- Sig 551 DMR
- H&K MK23 MGS1 build (yes, I am a nerd.)
- Custom 1911 x2 (two random 1911's with external overhauls, with performance upgrades where necessary)

One of the more depressing aspects of my collection is the accessories - I find myself (especially now) buying accessories for each rifle, rather than porting them over. In my head it's because it's finishing the guns off, but I do have to question that logic...it seems a little excessive

Very nice collection, and even nicer displayed.

I once drew up plans/designs for a cabinet to house my guns; rifles were hidden away, as were majority of pistols...however the nicer showier pieces would be displayed behind glass.

The concept was for when folks would visit whom had kids, that it was all locked away, and couldn't be used (just on the freak chance there happened to be BB & battery/gas in

One item I have been fighting with myself over the past forever (even started a thread about them way back when) is the shell ejecting M870's.

I'd love to pick up the Tanaka Works M870 with a tonne of shells, and even though it is universally accepted that they catastrophically fail...part of me still really wants one

Just look at it ...Beautiful
