No wonder he was the leader of the NRA.

is that a flame thrower mounted on the wall? AWESOME!

That's pretty impressive. My guess is that he has some kind of special collectors license or something, because I believe flame throwers are not only illegal, they are banned by international law. And I'm guessing most of those weapons aren't "street legal" so to speak...

There are at least three .50 Caliber Machine guns in that vault. I'm so freaking jealous.

The better question would be how many are in working order. Unless he had a couple of people dedicated to the cleaning and maintenance of those weapons, I imagine that a pretty decent percentage of them would be unusable.

Now... let's think about this for a second.

If he has that many guns... and they need to be maintained and cleaned... you should probably also fire them... just to make sure they are usable.... right? :wink02:

So who gets that job? and how much does it pay? Cause that would be a job that even i would be tempted to take!!

Most collectors I know maintain their own weapons. But most of them only had between 10-15 weapons at most. That included hand guns.

When you look at the sheer number of weapons in that room, I'd guess that between 10-15% of them were in working order.

But it does make you wonder what he was trying to compensate for.

how many members strong is the NRA?

to use an analogy, i dont think the most avid classic car collecters have a beautiful shell of a vehicle w/o a working engine. even if they never drive it, they wanna know they can when and if they ever want to.

Fair enough. I do know a few who have cars without batteries, oil, etc just to avoid letting those things go to waste.

I still find it kind of hard to believe that all of those weapons were in working order. Some of them were probably for show.

Some of them were probably for show.yeah, a working gatling gun would almost be too good to be true, and you know he isnt pulling those .50 caliburs off the wall and going "rambo" in his little indoor firing range.

i do think being president of the NRA has its perks though.

but like rev hinted at, alot of those guns would probably have to have the firing pin removed, chambers plugged, (or whatever they do) to be legally owned.

For sure. Take a close look and you'll see quite a few automatic weapons.

It's an impressive collection though.

I'll bet most of them are in good working order. The auto's can be fixed so they are only semi-auto's, so they'd be legal. :drooling:

Not to sure about the Howitzers though. :chuckle:

I have on very good authority they are all in excellent working order and most are being donated to the NRA Firearms museum. Some will be auctioned off and the money will go to scholarships, so I have been informed.

BTW if you want to own you own 50 cal fully auto legally pm me and I will give you the name, address, and phone number of a firearms dealer that can help you out. In fact he can get you just about anything you can dream of for the right price and legally.

I know him personally and have bought some from him already with my federal stamps.

Wow, that is badass.

And I thought my Uncle Bobby had a nice collection.

I will be buying my first gun soon, a Glock 22. I am planning on going into law enforcment and I need my own handgun for the academy.

I am also getting a 12 gauge dual barrel shotgun for my birthday from my Uncle Bobby.

Just the start to what will end up being a nice collection.

Awesome stuff! Only thing missing is a Mark 19!

As far as cleaning....... you don't have a collection like that in an unconditioned room! Keep the room conditioned and your friends grubby paws off them and the guns need minimal attention.

Close your eyes and imagine the smell............ ahhhhhhhh that puts lead in yer pencil!
