Forget the multi tool. They should include this to properly lubricate before you bend over...

The English language is full of problems like the one presented by there, their and they're. Most native English speakers pronounce these the same way; therefore, it is difficult for some to judge in which situation to use which spelling. Each spelling means a very different thing; if you'd like to learn the difference, read on!

There is an antique store on Camden Avenue.The science textbooks are over there on the floor.There are many documents that are used in investigations.2Also use there with the verb BE (is, am, are, was, were) to indicate the existence of something, or to mention something for the first time.
There is a picnic area over here, and a monster and a campground across the river."I see there are new flowers coming up in your garden." "Yes, they are the ones my grandmother gave me last year."3Use their to indicate possession. It is a possessive adjective and indicates that a particular noun belongs to them.

My friends have lost their tickets.Their things were strewn about the office haphazardly.4Remember that they're is a contraction of the words they and are. It can never be used as a modifier, only as a subject (who or what does the action) and verb (the action itself).

Hurry up! They're closing the mall at six tonight!I'm glad that they're so nice to new students here.5Test your usage. When you use any of these three words, get in the habit of asking yourself these questions, but remember that they will not work in all cases though:

If you wrote there, will the sentence still make sense if you replace it with here? If so, you're using it correctly.If you chose their, will the sentence still make sense if you replace it with our? If so, you've chosen the correct word.If you used they're, will the sentence still make sense if you replace it with they are? If so, you're on the right track!6Recognize incorrect examples and learn from the mistakes. By looking over others' work with a critical eye, especially by offering proofreading or copyediting help, you can become more sensitized to correct usage and practice it yourself.

Wrong: Their is no one here.Wrong: Shelley wants to know if there busy.Wrong: The dogs are happily chewing on they're bones.RIGHT: I can't believe they're leaving their children there, alone!7Practice, practice, practice! Get your English teacher or friend to say several sentences aloud that include one of these three words and write down which version they are using. Hire a private English tutor if you're still having trouble.Ads by Google

Edit TipsSpell out your contractions. Replace can't with cannot, you're with you are, and they're with they are. This way, you will catch yourself if you make a mistake in writing.
The students misplaced they're books → The students misplaced they are books.
Here, the second sentence makes no sense; hence, it is improper usage.
Turn off the auto-correct feature in your word processor. People tend to get lazy and forget special rules when the computer automatically corrects mistakes like the ones listed above.
If you're unsure if you're using "their" correctly, try replacing it with "my" —the sentence should work with the substitution. For example: Their house is purple. If you replace "their" with "my" the sentence still makes sense: My house is purple. So, you know you're using "their" correctly.
If you've ruled out "they're" or "their" as the correct form, then "there" is one you should go with!
If you have "there is" or "there are" then it's always "there" -- you'd never say "they're is" or "they're are" or "their is" or "their are".
Learning to spell correctly can help you succeed in school, get a great job, and be a contributor to wikiHow articles.
Remember there, their, and they're by the following rules:
there: the word here is in there so refer to there as a word for location.
their: the word he is in their so refer to their as a word for people.
they're: there is an ' in they're so they're is like they are. Instead of saying they're, say they are to see if it makes sense.
Another hint: “there” has “here” buried inside it to remind you it refers to place, while “their” has “heir” buried in it to remind you that it has to do with possession
Try imagining this scene: you see your neighbours standing outside their house, picking up garbage that they accidentally spilled on the ground. You point at them and say to your friend: "Look over there [location], they're [they are] picking up their garbage [possession]"

Collectors is a nice shop, more like a firearms museum than a retail store. I've been there a few times, but never bought anything as their prices are too high, and they're not flexible on the asking price.

They will work with cash, a 5% discount is the easy norm. I have bought a number of older S&W revolvers and WWII rifles from them. I did not mind paying the extra as they sell really nice quality examples :) They are pricey no doubt.

I find it funny that they have a dress code sign on the front door, pretty much says no gang banging clothes :rofl: Odd thing is that you can buy a $200 gun there or a $35,000 gun, both from the showroom floor.

They also carry a very extensive selection of 1911s. I would estimate they have 25-35 Wilsons, Browns, Nighthawks, Baers etc......nice window shopping :)

I came close to buying a lightly used 1872 Open Top revolver in .38 Spc. there about two years ago, but, they wanted $40.00 more than new for it. I offered them cash, same price as new, but they wouldn't budge on the price.

I do like their dress code sign though........Wonder if any bangers have tried to challenge it? :dunno:

I go there sometimes as well...kinda like going into a nice Godiva chocalate shop to smell the merchandise, then buy a Hershey bar at the convenience store. Anyway, notice the blemish on the left side of the slide in the front part at the 4 o'clock. Looks like an irregular divot or gouge - surely not part of the scroll design.
I have bought 4 guns there over the past 5 years, a new CZ452 FS 22LR with a Mannlicher stock for $410 (tax included), used but looks new S&W model 65 - the stainless, fixed sight 4" K frame .357 for $420, NEF single shot .45-70 for $200. 2 weeks ago I splurged and bought a CZ 527 .223 carbine that had a lightweight Leupold Vari X II scoope with cover for $700, which doesn't even look like it's been fired.
The folks that work there are not jerks, like some of the pawn shops I haunt for bargains.

I agree they are pretty good folks there to talk to. The guys back in the big "cowboy" gun section are really nice guys :) the 1911 guys are pretty good too.

I can not imagine any gang bangers debating the dress code, they don't want or need their business.
