The Head-Case gun thread

It makes things a bit easier on my aged eyes and it really doesn't make it much harder to conceal (at least for me, but I am not a twig). Pretty simple, reliable and quality construction. Some people criticize it for not being metal (steel) but I like the reduced weight of it in its current incarnation. 

@GrahameThat is a really old towel that has been relegated to shop/garage duty. But I can say with certainty that it was not bought at Costco since I cannot recollect buying anything at Costco, ever. NTTIAWWT.

I have bought towels at Costco. I have bought sheets at Costco. I buy Kirkland brand Irish Cream, because it's 1/4 of the cost of Baileys and I'm a lush. I only buy Kirkland brand cook wear, because it's awesome and a fraction of the cost of lesser "chef of the moment" crap. So if Brent thinks I'm an animal, he's right. A bear specifically.

The only reason we have not bought anything from Costco in the past was because we have never lived anywhere where we had even relatively easy access to Costco. Now we have reasonable access but we decided not too become store members after we were disillusioned by our membership at BJs Wholesale Club.

BJ's made everything so annoying and difficult we slowly stopped going. In reality, they really did not have that much we wanted to purchase there and for the things we did purchase, the prices were not particularly awesome. I'm probably ready to give Costco a try but I don't think Karen is ready.

Normally I'd post something like this in Slow Forum, but I think it fits here:

I'm more than a bit allergic to excessive patriotic iconography ("the last refuge of the scoundrel" and all that) but this display is really well done and all of those guns are of major significance in American history.

Once again I was going to post this in slow forum, but it's actually a better fit here.  I gave away a bunch of guns this weekend (like half of head-case: "Reeeee!") which mostly consisted of antique air guns, black powder long guns and one very strange .22 rifle.  The dude I gave them two is a long time friend of mine and was very happy to get them.  Hilariously, at least one of the black powder rifles is too long for his gun safe.  It is from 1867 and Austro-Hungarian in origin.  Another long example is an air rifle from ~1919 that was used for military training.  He discovered a note inside it that provided some provenance:

In encouraged my friend to keep the note and try to preserve it.
