    And if you run out of 'em, there's plenty more down the back of the couch.

    I have a jar of them, but usually when I don't have one I just hunt. I usually find one without having to go to the jar.

    I heard Clayton's coming out with some really good picks though...they're re-issuing a couple discontinued models.

    I bought a gross of Fender 351 Heavys back in the 80s. I'm still working on those.

    That is one of the coolest things I've seen all day. Though I'm sure I'd be better off just buying picks.

    I have two tortoiseshell flatpicks and some hand-made fingerpicks/thumbpick. "Other" picks are in a silver tin on the coffee table for visitors. If they take up to 6 or so every time (and somebody is here almost every day) I'll probably kick the bucket before the *$&*#^# things are gone!

    I don't have a clue where they all came from. I swear the things are small plastic Tribbles.

    I haven't bought picks in years. I bought several bags of what I use, and have hardly touched those.
    I have five picks that have been in use for a very long time, and I seldom lose picks. Probably won't
    buy any picks again for a very long time, if ever.

    1 pack of 6 Ultex picks was really enough for this year, because they hardly wear and I keep track of them, but I couldn't help buying one more pack. Then I ended up opening the second one after a couple beers made me too lazy to get up to go to one of my designated pick caches. Now I'm living in gluttonous excess. Please forgive me!

    I'm pretty sure I have about 10,000 of them scattered around the house here. I have 'em lying everywhere because I lose them all the time. I like being able to look in any direction in my office/man cave and see a pick.

    Well thanks, but if it's all the same I'll just go ahead and use one my PLASTIC picks. I don't know if it's too late, but you might put something on that. Ouch don't cover that!:eek::eek::eek::eek:
