    whats your most prized possession and why?

    Mine is an original Bob Ross painting. The Bob Ross foundation made a substantial effort to buy them all after he died, but I was lucky enough to visit the studio on one of the days he was filming his show. He filmed an entire season in one-two days and was a really down to earth guy. Surprisingly, nobody else was there and I just decided on a whim to drop in while passing thru Indiana.

    I watched him paint the painting while being filmed for the episode. One of the things that was stunning was how funny that dude and his producer were. The whole time they were trading jokes and funny stories. Some of the stories got dark (one was about Bob almost killing someone while in the Air Force) and some were downright dirty, but they were all edited out to deliver the trademark "cheery" attitude that the guy had.

    After the painting was done, he let me take it off the easel to put on a drying rack while he set up for the next show. While he was putting liquid white on the next blank canvas, I checked out the other paintings he had done that day. I got so taken aback by them that I was almost literally entranced by the talent he possessed, I didn't even notice him enter the room.

    Anyway, he saw how much I liked his work, and we shot the shit for a while. After about a half hour, he went back to work and I had to hit the road. As I was leaving, his assistant came out with a painting and told me that Bob wanted this to go to someone that would enjoy it. It was the fucking painting with a new addition: his signature and the words "happy painting".

    Fucking guy was what more people should strive to become.

    A couple years later, he died :(

    When I was in college, every afternoon I would put on his show. I never watched him finish a painting, because he would put me to sleep in the first 5 minutes.

    1920's Colt Woodsman with original box... pretty much the Holy Grail for Colt collectors

    4" Colt Royal Blue Diamondback like new with original box and grips (not shown). Anybody who knows anything about guns knows how hard these are to come by, especially in this condition.
