Nice collection you've got there,Given how BBM has, um, vastly overstated the truth in every thread he's participated in, I do not believe that he has ANY of the weaponry he claims to have.

those are just the ones off the top of my headFYI - they have medications for that now.

The answer is: NOT ENOUGH. I want one of those walk in vaults with guns hanging all over the walls and mounted guns/artillery sitting on the floor. Too bad they aren't all free to a good home.:rolleyes:

I like how on mundane guns, he knows the brands, but on the super expensive exotic double rifles, where one would be proud and make sure to go out of their way to describe the make in detail, all he lists is a *caliber*, as if that were a rifle description.

And why would own more than one gun when you shoot at least 4 boxes a week of .300 winmag, week in and week out, for years on end? When would you have time to shoot any of the other ones? And when would you have time to book and go on hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Africa safari hunts?

A LEVER action in .404 Gibbs? What make of rifle would that be? In fact, I don't think that there even IS a cartridge called .404 Gibbs. There is a .404 Jeffrey, but .404 Gibbs??? :scrutiny:

This is without any shadow of a doubt, a 13 year old wanna be airsoft LIAR. Either that, or these are the guns he owns in his Call of Duty collection or some other game, and he now thinks that fantasy is reality (still 13 though).

That said, I voted in his poll.

I hate to call b.s. on anyone. But, the Rem. Model 7 has never (as far as I know, and others should back me up on this) been produced in .270 Win. or ANY OTHER long action cartridge. It is a, short action only model.

You needn't worry about that one, as many many others have called BS on him in several far-fetched threads by him.

Interesting collection BBM. You must have spent most of your money on the numerous African safariís you went on.

About 5. I want maybe two or three more, but aside from those 5 is more than I actually need.

I hardly get a chance to shoot one of my rifles, whats the point in having $10,000 in rifles that I can't shoot?

I found this at Outdoor Life. Apparently 404 Gibbs does exist. Don't know about the lever action though.

http://www.outdoorlife.com/outdoor/hunting/upland/article/0,19912,195062,00.html
The one great limitation to the ingenuity of wildcatters has been the limited availability of workable cartridge cases. In recent times, though, the influx of plumper but once-hard-to-find brass, such as the .404 Gibbs and .416 Rigby, has wildcatters downright giddy. Not only do these pudgy cases offer a higher ratio of propellant capacity to length, but they are also free of the often troublesome belt of the traditional H&H Mag. case. (Contrary to widespread misinformation, the belt does not increase strength; it is only for headspacing.)

According to Blue Book, there are at least two versions of the model 7 chambered in .270 WSM.

I have "a few"...that is as close to a number as you will get from me.

None of them are "exotic", some are rare, some are discontinued, some are old, some are new...most are bolt actions, several are lever actions, 2 are pumps and 8 are semi auto's (soon to be 9....I'm getting a Remington 750 carbine in 308)

I've never been on any African safari's...probably never will, but I would like to...my little collection started when I was 8 years old with an old Winchester single shot 22.


I just like having them...who cares if I ever shoot them...a mans gotta have a hobby, right? And who, in their right mind would collect stamps or baseball cards? (no offense to any that do...just making a point that its my hobby and investment and I enjoy it)

Never ceases to amaze me why anyone would put their whole collection listing out for the world to see, but try to keep is somewhat quite in the neiberhood. Or as I stated earlier is it just for bragging rights?
