    Don't take guns to school? Well not anymore but when i went to high school it wasn't uncommon to see 15-30 trucks with a 30-30 and or 12 gauge in a rear window rack. We all went hunting after school and the guns were never used for anything but that so no one paid it no mind. If ya had a score to settle you did it like a man, with your fists.

    Those days are gone now sadly my friend. We don't have too many shooting murders in UK apart from gangland hits but so many needless stabbings now by children as young as 12. In my day it was just a good old fashioned punch up at pub closing time, nobody got killed :(:(:(

    Yep, guns don't kill people. Crazies do

    I could beat someone to death with my 87 Charvel but don't think there would be any point in banning hair metal guitars because the headstock is pointy :(

    Regret selling a birthyear 1972 Super Lead 100 and a 1968 Super Lead plexi. Both phenomenal, but had some financial situations years ago so gear had to go.

    And now I hear rumblings of a GMC/Chevy electric pickup to be made in Ohio.. Along with a plant to build batteries. Nice for jobs but I'm not sure those will sell like hot cakes.

    Common in my HS days to see rifles racked up in pickups.

    Ya know, I guess I am lucky because any amp or maybe even any guitar I have ever sold I have never looked back on the decisions yet! Hope it stays that way!

    If you don’t buy a lot of stuff you don’t have to sell a lot of stuff.

    I thought everyone needs two amps.

    I mentioned my regret story about an 800 2204S earlier in the thread. Other regret was selling a Class 5 head. Bought one when they first came out and really enjoyed having it. It was pretty much the first modern low-wattage Marshall and, while it had some flaws, was simply a lot of fun to play.

    Fixed that regret this week. Ironically, I’m now again debating whether to keep the 2204S, it’s way more amp than I need and I’m challenged for space in my current living arrangements. Do we never learn from the past?
