You would know that a MORON would find this gold mine. Click on the link and have a look for yourselves. Don't forget to read what he is going to do with this stuff.

This is the second time recently that I've heard a version of this story. First time was here. (http://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=180796) I suspect someone may be trying to start an urban legend.

i bet the previous owner of that house (and the guns) is rolling and twisting in his grave, trying to get out and strangle the dude...

its just such a waste. if you look downwards someone said "at least sell them to collectors" and he said "i dont want to sell them, i just want them gone!"

i'm kinda skeptical. the whole "Thank God they are off the streets and now pose no harm to the children. I plan to turn them over to local law enforcement where they will hopefully be destroyed." thing sounded to me like someone yanking the chain of folks like us. or maybe something deep inside me REFUSES to accept that a tragedy such as this could ever take place in a "civilized" world. :uhoh:

I'm going to be ill now.

I started reading the comments and just kept feeling sicker. What a bunch of... (decided not to post a definitely non-high-road comment).

Seriously, as one poster commented, the bulk of the replies are from seriously ill-informed people with big-time issues. It's frightening that there are so many folks like this out there.

Sheesh!

Yea. One of the comments said "Arnt Machine gun bullets Illegal"

Wow..... this is shocking.

So many uninformed people...

But that is one beatiful collection. All the weapons look new and rarely fired. If ever fired.

I'm calling BS. Just something about it doesn't seem right. I don't see this happening, esp. with the newer style weapons, like the M4geries, etc. I could see stumbling across a safe with a couple old bolt actions or mil-surps, but this is not close.


what CANNOT be faked, and is even more sickening, are the responses to the story posted at the bottom of the page. "Call the Brady Campaign" and "aren't machinegun bullets illegal?" and a bunch of other ignorant crap. :barf::barf::barf:

Thank goodness! Still scary that some of the comments are probably genuine, but comforting that such a glorious collection didn't end up in the shredder.

The weapons all look like they were lovingly laid out for display. Not the kind of arrangement I would expect from a poster who considered themselves lucky that they didn't get hurt taking them out of the safe.

I think he's either tweaking the pro-gunners (not likely, since his collection leads me to think he's one of us) or he's drawing out the antis for some ridicule and taunting.

In the future, before you let a story like this tickle you wrong just see if it's been featured by the media ( at least the local news of wherever it happened). These kind of events are always covered by the media, and a quick google news search shows nothing on this one.

No ignorant anti would be able to come up with something that bad(As in able to make a gun enthusiast cry), plus he would have left them all in the safe in case they became possessed and started shooting babies.

I hope that this is a fake story. Really. I'd be pissed off that I fell for it, but it's better than finding out this guy ordered them to be melted down or something. :banghead:

This reminds me, I just bought my house two years ago and I only looked up into the attic once during the open house.

It's a fake. Nobody carefully lines up guns like that when they're scared stiff of 'em. The ATF might...

Some of the comments are hillarious, though - not just the anti ones:

That gun on the top left looks like a Sig BRD. My uncle has one. It's a piece of crap and ammo is really hard to get. Not that the swiss can make a good gun to save their lives. Throw it in a lake.

Only thing the Swiss make good is their knives.

I wonder if the gang members will be back? I don't feel safe in my house anymore. I'm sleeping with the phone and 911 programmed into the speed dial.

Heh. Lots of drive-bys with Garands. And belt-fed weapons.

And, whether we're talking about the bozo who allegedly found these weapons or the subsequent posters to that thread, here we surely have proof that Einstein was right.

What on earth did the guy expect to find in a big Safe in the basement?
Bodies? I think he had to have some idea..
If he truly gave all those firearms up for destruction that would be really sad.
The mere thought of any person being so wastefull with those beautiful tools makes my stomach turn.
I hope that if it is a joke of some sort that it will be removed from the internet.

around 15 years back a couple fellas I know that are metal detector fans (and bigger fans of beer drinking) had a chance to take down an old house in Hendersonville, NC next town from where I live but lollygagged around until the owner got someone else to do it. the fellas that did it found mason jars full of silver and few gold coins and silver certificate money in the walls. a misers hoard that was worth mucho $$. they moped around for weeks after the find was published kicking themselves in the ass. these are ol' country boys with no full-time jobs, should have seen 'em, I still chuckle about that, how they acted and looked.

I ended up being the winning bidder of a house that was auctioned off when the old guy that owned it died. He had no relatives. There is a rather large old safe in the basement of the house that no one knew the combination to. The safe went with the house. After purchasing the house, I had a lock-smith open the safe. This is what I found.



























Just joking. I had a few guns out cleaning them up today and thought I'd snap a picture

I just want to know where the charging handle on that AK is? I can't find it.

After the previous mention of this subject I went back and looked... I think it may be there. Looks to me like the bolt carrier is black, and I can kinda sorta imagine that the charging handle is there, just hard to see in the pic.

Of course I could be wrong... not like that's ever happened before.
