It just grows & grows, but to make things more interesting, it even expands.

Is this an unhealthy addiction or obsession, or is this good? LOL..

As if bayonets & milsurp rifles were not enough, I had to keep buying accessories & accoutrements for each rifle/bayo etc..like the ammo pouches & everything else.. started collecting medals as well as other various field gear, etc.. now seems I'm on to helmets too..

Is this obsessive addiction of mine ever going to stop?

Ok, so I'm looking at belts & buckles to start buying, because the bayonet in the frog attaches to it, lol... Ok, so I suppose I'll need the various uniforms & everything else that goes with it too... but then that means I need mannequins to dress them up,,,

I fear one day soon that I'll have a room full of fully dressed, fully equiped and armed soldiers from several countries staring at me in the living room.........


How did this happen? All this started with what at the time was only a rifle and a bayonet..

Then, next, you will have full scale re-enactments of all the major battles of WWII :) And after that, your own private mannequin army! Mwuhahahaha :)

As long as you buy things that increase in value, it's productive. Now if you go buy a new pair of shoes everytime you go shopping, that's destructive!

Still takes less space than collecting toy trains.

Well, as long as you don't also have a collection of diaries explaining how you'd like to commit a murder, then I'd say it's ok by me!

As long as you do not start dressing and outfitting real soulders, making your own tanks, planes, ships, and support vehicles, your own small arms and ammo and all the ordinance needed to support the others, and looking at collecting countries and seeking world domination, I think your fine.:eek:

If the phenomenon you describe WEREN'T occuring, I would say there is something wrong.

I have a basement full of Finn WWII field gear that says your progress is normal.

Mannequins are only like $60 on e-bay...
