My kids are already fighting over my tools and guns already.

Carols having an auction with my stuff,if you want it,you will buy it.
Or,she can just move away and leave it all for the next guy.i'll be dead and will not care.
Real deal is,most of my stuff is old,heavy and well used,no sacred tools here.

I think of multiple tools as good insurance.

Sure as anything the day will come when you need to do something and one or two will pick that day to throw bits all over the shop and refuse to cooperate

Might be true but you know what they say: "One man's junk is another man's treasure." Why else would some of the junk you see at auctions go for such high prices?

I thought the limit was that you could only put 7 nails in a nail gun at one time, and no bump fire setting allowed.
