Collectors of military memorabilia search for everything from toy soldiers to working guns. Many of these souvenirs are dangerous, and any gun, hand grenade, or other military object that might hold explosives should be checked by local police or other experts. If you have children in a home with military memorabilia, be sure the guns and knives are safely locked up. Old guns should have the barrels filled so it is impossible to accidentally discharge them. Old rifles may be unsafe to shoot, and often, even safe antiques have a recoil that will surprise the inexperienced.
