    I think there is some disagreement as to whom the guns actually belonged to...the photos are accurate says Hoax-Slayer.com, though the information being circulated is not exactly correct they say. Some of the guns were recently sold at auction. I say no matter WHO it belonged to it is AWESOME!!!! They suggest the guns actually belonged to a Bruce Stern.
    Thanks for sharing those awesome pictures Dayton! That is just unbelieveable!

    It is a great collection and deserves to find their way to a museum. I have personal experience with a good number of those TYPES of weapons and those are great examples of the different configurations.

    Dayton, as always, thanks for sharing with us

    Dayton,

    I sure hope my son never sees those pics or he will turn his upstairs into one of those. He just finished putting up walls and moving to the basement, now he has to finish the upstairs. He has a large number of guns.

    I want one of those 13 or 17 oz lugers they have come out with, but my brother told me no, I need one with more kick.

    My thoughts exactly.
    Hang that sucker off the back of the boat at wide open throttle and watch the water burn.
