That Boss doesnt sound much like a collectible, or something a collector would covet. Originality is what counts most, I think......and a square chunk of metal missing from the barrels close to the breech isnt original. Sorry George. Ive made a bad decision or two on these guns too. I bet we arent alone with the poor decisions....

collectible means...(to gather).
if you gather a certain gun or guns.....or anything for that matter, youre a collector.
if you collect with no goal in mind, youre a hoarder, and that is an illness.
there will always come a time in a collectors life, where they become liquidators.
those that cant liquidate....are hoarders.

seems the liquidation phase of life comes when gray hair appears and you painfully realize and conclude, that the things you collected have no value or interest to the folks around you.

then it hits you, you stubbornly realize it was just a pastime afterall.

Nothing wrong with pastimes, as long as they stay that.
