Fortunately that tent only cost me $50 - an expensive lesson to learn, but it could have been worse. The next time I'll drape it over my deck rails, flip it a couple of times, and call it a day.

That makes sense it becomes a collectible package - rather than just have the old gun, you also have the period correct ammo that would have been used with it.
