School districts, hopital districts, other taxing authorities all pitch in to spread the cost around
Drones are probably also in use, but I have no first hand knowledge...

I say the same thing, I have a lot of junk but some of it’s “worth” very much to fellow junkers . I just never cared much for “junky” Guns or relics, again to each their own. I like some stuff others might not carry home if free lol. I don’t think Mike and Frank are much of junkers, I think they are more about the hunt and find and mostly the profit. They are smart!
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit such crimes... such laws make things worse for the assualted and better for the assailants: they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man" Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria

So I'm guessing at some point you just become the custodian who has to devote a lot of time to maintane the collection properly. I would continue to keep them.
Uberti Open Top 1872 model in .45Colt with 7 1/2" barrel, Colt M1945A1, Winchester 1873 & 94.
This is one of the best threads on here in a while.
The last quote the most.
I'm on the edge of going the full monty or cold turkey as it is often said.
But when I go to the safe and start picking a few....
They start talking to me.
Each has it's own secret story of it's past
and the story of how it ended up in my care.
I'm not a deep pocket player especially now that i'm retired
yet sometimes I tangled with the big boys because I had to have
that certain special pistol.
Nobody is going to pay what I did and what they are worth to me.
So back in the safe they go.
My son and daughter have no interest in them,
when I'm gone it wont mater to me either.
Nothing like holding history in your hand he said.
and so it goes.

They are just things. If they aren't giving you pleasure, sell them. Take the dough and go on a cruise or take a trip to someplace you've always wanted to go.
I'm thinking of emptying my safe and taking a trip to India. I've always wanted to go to India. Maybe when I'm on my deathbed I'll think fondly on that trip. I doubt I'll be thinking of the safe full of guns I had.
