    Find two pistols you forgot you even had?

    Found a little Omega .22Short revolver and a no name .22LR revolver. Honestly forgot all about them till today.

    also found 4 rounds of .22magnum. Ive never owned any firearms in that caliber. Not sure what that’s all about.

    When we moved a few years ago I had to move all my safes. Had not been emptied in years, I found several that I had forgot about. Found around 6k rounds of 40, had not owned a 40 in years.

    I worked with some guys that were always short on cash and always wanted to borrow money. After getting burnt one time, the guy quit the next day I would not loan money without collateral. We moved several years later and found 4 guns in the closet that I had loaned money on years prior that I forgot about. Apparently they never wanted them back, Browning sweet 16 made in "52, Rock Island 1911, FIE 22 magnum and a 12 gauge single shot don't remember the brand on that one.

    Ha! It happens. I found an old .22 rifle the other day in a closet that I had completely forgot about.

    Just today I dug out the original case that my S.A. XD45 Tactical pistol came in and lifted up the foam,and there was a brand new magazine. Completely forgot it was there.

    I have some of those rods that hang under a shelf in the safe to put into the muzzle of a pistol for storage. There is always one of those little short pistols lurking in there that I forget about. Davis Derringer in .22 mag, and a German made .25 auto. They don't get shot often.

    Some day I hope to have so many guns like you guys that I forget about some of them.
    Or maybe thats a function of age, not qty of guns...
