Here we have A.K. "Skid" Marc (the somnolent stoplight running lardass) failing even to do a link properly. And doing it as AC, for shame.

Now here's how to do it properly:

"So rather than being needlessly wordy, treasure trove is the etymologically complete phrase, misconstrued over time [by stupid fat idiots] as a noun-noun compound rather than a noun followed by an adjective. "

It seems more likely that if you want to use a gun to kill yourself, you will buy one.

You've had a shit day at the office, so you set off for the gun store, and on the way there you start to calm down, and there's a nice sunset so you turn round and go home, have a few beers and fall asleep. Then in the morning you go "shit, what was I thinking?"

or

You've had a shit day at the office, so you pull the gun out from under the pillow and shoot yourself with it.

Which is better? Which is more likely?

All I did was float around the Big Pond (East coast) in Uncle Sam's Yacht Club DURING the Vietnam era.

I don't know why you call it the big pond, it's smaller than the one on the other side.

Still, you were maintaining a state of preparedness & covering the other flank in case the Frogs, Limeys or Krauts got up to something.
