    Quite the collection. This went around a while back though.

    Unfortunately it's not Charlton Heston's, but rather that of the late Bruce Stern. Stern was a Vietnam vet and quite the gun collector. He was also an NRA member and on the Board of Directors. He died sometime in '97.

    Regardless, it's a mouth-watering collection.

    Thanks for the ID, Sarge. I've wondered who's collection I've been drooling over. ;) :p :D

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but there has been a ton of misinformation circulating the internet about these photos. These are not pics of Charlton Hestons basement nor is it Bruce Sterns. It is Glocknuts basement, before he added a few pieces. :D

    My favourite have to be the BARs. Though there are lots to keep any gun nut happy for some time. Is that an old 'brown' AR10 on the far wall above a M16? Nice rifles.

    I have often wondered about private collectors. I never saw the point, it's a little like having a private museum. Dont get me wrong, if you have the money and inclination, go for it, but it never appealed to me. It's a death thing, I mean we are all temporary custodians of these things. I have a few bits I like, a couple of 1750-1800 navy cutlass for a start, but I always have in the back of my mind, best pass them on before too long. Cant take them with me, let others enjoy.

    As I say, dont mis understand, it's only my personal point of view. If you have the money and get pleasure from your collection, go for it.

    Now, where can I get one of those doors?
