Amazing. Thanks for sharing
What a cool gun room!
I wish I had space like that.
Of course if I did, I still couldn't afford to fill it...
Personally, I would have invested that kind of money in vintage military weapons, especially full auto ones.
How many hunting guns does a person need, when hunting seasons are short and far between.
Now THAT seems a little crazy to me.
If you ask me, he was either a pepper or a mexican drug cartel.
I could see owning 325 or even more but his collection seems a little redundant. I'd have a couple each of the best examples of each particular niche with the modern rifles, then I'd go vintage Military like Jbett98 suggested.
I wonder what Ted Nugent's collection looks like?
When I win the big lotto, I want something like this.
This was really owned by a lawyer named Bruce Stern and after he died, it was auctioned off in 2007.
I have just under 10% in number of specimens of what the good Doctor had, and don't even wind up using some of them for YEARS. I only desire to a aquire a Tavor to complete my addiction.... Maybe also a MP5 to take me back to my a Army days.... Maybe also a Dragonov or PCL rifle..... Maybe also a CETME/G3..... And maybe a M60..... Awwww crud, I guess I better get started on building that additional room.
Don't say what kind of doctor he was but it looks to me like he did some horse trading.Taking any gun bow fishing pole or supplies for his services
A quick google search showed that he was a dentist.
He had fair to good taste in firearms, but his choice of a Chinese tractor from a huckster from my hometown was misguided, I'm afraid.
300 lbs of powder and over 30K in brass and the guy did not even have a Dillon
Would be nice to have just a little of that reloading stuff
That's easy for YOU to say, you just bagged a 4-pnt. buck!!
It was just a little Bambi.....
Not really.... It was FRIGGIN HUGE and I was ASTOUNDED at my good fortune!!
Best threadjack ever.
Yeah that's part of the reason I think he was a trader.Guns yes but too many bows of too many brands.Archers tend to stick with 1 or 2 brand.
And you can bet this auction will be a zoo!
A friend got in on a sale up here were the guy reloaded 150 calibers.He made a killing at 2 shows with all the brass and ammo.Guys will come for miles to try for the odd ball calibers.
Heck most of the guns won't bring retail.Everyone over there will have a few in their closets.
Used bows resell for way lower than used guns, The Mathews may do OK
No matter what, he's my kind of hoarder. It defiantly will be a zoo at the auction.
There's never a U-Haul hitched to a hearse.
Nor an armored truck... And I think a fine rifle would be more fun to fondle in my final days than a stack o cash...
I am sure it will be well attended, But you got to consider this is small town Idaho where folks are poor. I bet there will be some bargains to be had. And I bet there is no paperwork either, Private sale Course you have to have a Idaho ID to buy.
There's plenty of money in the region,but still,there will be some good deals
