I received these from my grandfather when he passed. I also received all kinds of ammo, not just whats listed.

Remingon 270


Winchester Model94 30-30


M1 Carbine (With clips and Ammo) The clips on the left are extended ones, not sure of their capacity )




German 8mm Mauser ( I believe with Nazi Insignias, the gun was redone by my grandfather with Birds eye oak and Nickel plated barrel )




Webley MarkVI


German Luger ( With Nazi Insignias all over, matching numbers, holdster and 2 clips )


1865 Spencer Carbine .52 cal 7 shot tublar magazine. Has all matching numbers and readable serial number. Functional and no MAJOR cosmetic flaws.

I have more that are mine, since I got my hunters license back when I was 12. Just did not want to post them, they are your normal 22s, 12ga, my XD 45acp, 9mm SW, ya know semi normal guns :D

The reason I posted these up, is because I have been talking to several people about them. So I thought I'd post em up.

And thanks for saying that about my Grandfather, but he passed when I was 6yrs old. ( both of them actually, mom and dads dad. ) But I just received the guns, now that I am an "Adult"... you know how those grandmother are. Hahaha.

Beautiful collection! Dont know what your planning on doing with it, but I would personally never part with a single one of those weapons. I would also save up and get a quality safe to make sure they can be passed down to your children/grandchildren.

Man that 30-30 is good looking!

That right there is all you need, no use in have 500 weapons you cannot use. One for up close, another for a littler further and another for up to a few hundred yards.
True, that's why I got these first but I have been getting into trap and skeet so I'd like an over under, as I mentioned I'm getting a Glock 26 for easy conceal carry (I'm really skinny and have a hard time!) and then of course I'd like the XDM9 to replace my XD45 as my IDPA and USPA competition pistol. Finally I'd like a M1A with a JAE 100 stock and some great optics. I want to take some long range shooting classes to be able to hit out to 800 meters.
One day in the distant future when the house is paid off I want a Barrett .50! You can say all you want to about them but there is nothing like the looks a guy with one gets when he pulls that baby out at the range! Here's a picture of a SOCOM 16 with the stock and a link to an article about it.

No doubt, I kinda wish my collection was as efficient.
