    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.

    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?

    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. :rolleyes:

    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:eek:

    Would be nice to have just a little of that reloading stuff;)

    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.
