In the process of moving - after 4+ years. I've found "UDT Duck Feet" from 1967, a mask from 1969, and a regulator (double hose) from 1972. There is no "dishonor" in "disorganization" - there is "guy dishonor" in elimininating "stuff"!

Alright, here is mine. I just bought my first house about 11 months ago. The house was new so I had the builder leave the carpet out of one of the extra bedrooms. I got it in a roll though so now I can abuse the slab however I want (spills and such) and then just throw down new carpet when I sell.

I built the table myself...first functional item I probably ever built out of wood all on my own outside of shop class. It's attached to the wall and rock solid.

It isn't all gun related, but its definitely my cave and the firearm collection is growing...I need a safe real bad.

Gents, other items needed?

There's gotta be a couple of rusted flat weights and perhaps the remains of old field gear "you're gonna fix"....

Crap, y'all. I'm guilty as sin, that's for sure. You're right, Dozer, she might just still be down there in one of those tubs...country craft crap wrapped around her, still bitching. Maybe that's what I keep hearing late at night. Gads! I'm beginning to feel like Norman Bates' older brother!

Gotta snap out of it.

NoRoadtrippin,
Love the ManCave. I should have taken a shot at the other side of my basement, its a bicycle shop...lol. I build custom bikes on my off time. Last project was a Merlin ExtraLite Titanium Road bike, with Sram Red, and Force components. One of your Mtn Bikes looks like a Titanium frame. Appreciate the photos, hopefully you gave LarryW some ideas for replacing his balls of yarn

Holy crap, is that a Singer Sewing Machine?

Ok, I was relooking over the photos of NoRoadtrippin's stuff, how in the heck did I miss the Singer Sewing Machine in my first pass

Rule # 1 No womens shit allowed in the Mancave. We just got through roasting LarryW's conchos in the grill for having yarn balls in his bacement

What's wrong with the Singer? Real men don't depend on somebody else for their gear mods. (Yes, I've got "several" sewing machines sharing space in my reloading room. Saved a lot of money on sewing patches on uniforms over the years.)

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.

Dunno if I classify a sewing machine as women's shit...I've known guys that repaired, designed, and fabricated gear in their basement...used to know a rigger/sport jumper that repaired his rig with his own sewing machine...I know a couple of guys now that sew patches on leather vests for motorcycle clubs, etc...

I could tolerate yarn if it was part of a sand table kit, but since LarryW was a squid, he can't cop to that...
