I thought I was a gun nut! Even if I won the Powerball I can't
imagine that many guns. He has more stuff than the Smithsonian

    Weapons of any kind don't frighten me. Congress or the State Legislature being in session scares the hell out of me, though! :silly::silly::silly::silly::roll2::tooth:

    The "Dragon Man" is a Colorado Springs celebrity, of sorts. He will rent you the use of a fully auto machine gun for playing with on his range. I think that Mike (Linefinder) has paid him a visit along with some others. I never made it there.

    A few years ago some TV show was filming there, and set up some kind of foolery with fireworks. It backfired, and somehow the Dragon Man's wife was killed from the mishap.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Back in the 70's that guy and his Dragon bike was featured in almost every chopper-related magazine I ever read. I once saw him and his bike at a bike show event somewhere.

    Good for him! I really have no interest in owning a collection of that size. Gun cleaning day would be sheer murder...

    I'm not playing any game where I have to die to win.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Nah me neither. In fact, a little confession here, back in the day when I had one rifle, my old .270, I spent time thinking and wishing I had a house full of guns. Now I have them. But I will confess back when I only had one, I took better care of it and I was happier. I didn't have to think what I would "hunt with this weekend!, '" It never went neglected, and was cleaned thoroughly every time I got it out. But, it was an itch I thought needed scratching and I did it. Actually, I don't mind having 20 rifles, just as long as I don't have to clean em all at once,:tooth:

    Only thing scary about it is that anyone really cares about this. A person can legally own as many firearms, swords or tanks as they like. Even here in jersey. I didn't finish the article yet, and although impressive, it is a business and not so much a personal collection. Either way, he is a lucky man.

    Correct, its a business. But the article is from the UK and to those papers, 1 gun makes you a fear laden cowboy ready for war.

    I've heard you'll never see a UHaul behind a hearse.


    Not true.
