What did you say?? When was the last time you opened it?? I have 2. 1 is used frequently and the other not so much-that one was a challenge until i made the combos very unique rifle calibers-much easier to recall than just a bicycle lock number! (one was prev. my g/fs measurements-but she keeps changing it on me!)
@C.W. Richter
Mate my gun cases and trigger locks all have the one combination. My favourite caliber. Every one on this sigh t now probably knows it.
No @CoElkHunter and @CHB it isn't 243.

A mate of mine forgot his combination but could open his safe with a key. Only problem he had misplaced the key.
When I asked him if he had a spare key somewhere safe he replied with a stupid grain on his face.
You guessed it he had locked it in his safe so he wouldn't lose it.
Some people you have to wonder about.

I am no psycologist, but mind workings interest me a lot. For sure subconcious auto responses like you describe are very fragile and seem to be the first to go. Try not using your computer for a month and see how elusive that password becomes! I suffer exactly that with my internet banking codes, it's a buggar. You have to somehow committ the process to the cognitive side, associations are the easiest, like a little rhymes. Duh, we all know this, but we dont do it!
easiest way to deal with that is to use a password vault, like LastPass or KeePass. Both free. Then the only password you have to remember is the one to the vault. I probably have 500 online accounts. I don't know the passwords to any of them, because they're all 15 to 50 characters in length, and are random strings of gibberish.

I'm in the IT security biz, and rely on vaults heavily, both at work and for personal use.

I have no problems with online pass words and other passwords, they are ALL THE same. I always forget so if any one asks my pass word I can simply say I forget. Works all the time but I do get some funny looks until they see it on their screen.
Bob
Not my real pass word but along similar lines
Smart!

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
