I enjoyed the auction for the Buffalo Hunter. Finally thought that since you live up in Etna, you be or might know a hunter. Since I would have liked to have a knife like that when I hunted, I figured it might be better put to use that it would be if it ended up sitting on my shelf, while I remembered days gone by. Nothing wrong with that if that's your plan. Enjoy, it was a tough decision to give it up. I'm sure you will enjoy it. Take care, OG

To post a discussion to the Arsenal, you could click on the "Groups" in the bar near the top of any page you happen to be on.  That will bring up a page with the groups listed.  Right now the Arsenal is on the first page of the group list.  If it isn't when you go there just scroll down to the bottom of the Groups list and go to the next page.  That is how to get to any of the about 80 different groups.

Or to go directly to the Arsenal group, just click on this link.


When you get to the Arsenal start scrolling down.  You will see a list of discussions already posted.  At the bottom of that list is "+ Add a Discussion".  Click on it and a box will pop up for you to fill in.  At the top of the box is the word "Add" and five icons.  Move your cursor over the second icon.  It will say "Image".  When you click it, it will open a box for you to go to your computer and select whatever images you want to include in your discussion. When you are done, just go to the bottom of the box and click "Add Discussion."  You are done.

The easy way to post pics is to click on the second icon from the left of  the command bar @ the top of the comment box. It looks like a little picture ..&.. if you place the mouse cursor on it .. it will say "image". Just follow the directions after that.


Oh .. and use the post located @ the bottom of your page where the capitalized "HERE" is in bold. It should take you directly to the "hobo coins" section of each vendors on-line storefront.


Let us know if you still experience issues.

i.e. click on the capitalized "HERE" in my last post .. I double checked the links after posting the message to you & the provided links took me directly to the "Hobo Coins" selection of each storefront.

Michael .. I saw your post to JJ

Try the link HERE ..and.. HERE.

JJ & I are purchasing these "coins" from the same vendors

Perhaps .. this link will work for you .. they should take you directly to the vendor's "store" site on AliExpress.

Let us know if it still does not work
