To everyone,
I just want to say a big thank you to all who have provided me with help, advice and information over the past few months of my collecting. I'm typing this while looking over at my display of my 6 Chens.

Once again, many thanks, Chris.

It's gonna be pretty hard these days to dispose of stainless steel crap. I was looking at one of mine earlier thinking if I wanted to bin it I'd probably have to take it to the local cop shop and ask them to dispose of it. Be a good idea if one of us can find out exactly what the protocol is for discarding a banned weapon.
