When One is None and Two is One. What is Seven?

It's ridiculous what we collect sometimes. Once I had a couple of these, I knew I had to have them all*

*I am aware this isn't all of them (as the rattler and misc cardboard boxes are missing...)- but it is all of the plastic boxes I can think of.

    Does the picture show them in issue order? OCD ya know.

    It doesn't! (I don't think.)
    Does anyone know the order? I'm guessing green- blue-black- orange- lime- gold- silver (?)

    The thread title is a common perception among Glock collectors (of which I am an avid enthusiast).

    @braddick ... Actually, 'Two is one, one is none' is an axiom among most trained self defense or tactical shooters. And the reason I carry two .45's every day. My other axiom that I teach my students is "Failing to plan, is planning to fail." Cheers, RickO

    The saying “Two is one and one is none” comes from the Navy Seals. This idea simply put means that only having one of something is the same as not having it at all and having two of any item is the same as what you think having one means. This applies to plans, supplies, weapons, and even clothing. If you have a single knife with you and you lose or break it, you might as well have not had it to begin with. Having a backup means that the inevitable loss or breakage won’t slow you down.

    I recall a thread years back that featured "guns and coins" that was shut down pretty quickly. I think it's happened a couple of times.
    Otherwise, it would be fun to show off that side of the hobby (along with coins).

    The orange one was special for the basketball coins. Does a red one exist? How about yellow? Nice collection @braddick !!!
