This is Charlton Heston home?

A friend of mine sent this same one to me a few months ago. Very impressive to say the least.
We could only wish we were so fortunate.I don't know who it belongs to.

This has been going around for a couple of months - and while it has been attributed to Heston in the e-mail versions, many other sites have it belonging to a lawyer named Bruce Stern from Maine I believe.

The auction netted a now record of 12.7 million USD. Apparently the guy was a lifelong collector. He certainly had some nice taste, that is for sure.

I also think it was Sterns collection. If you went and looked at the auction house's web page, it took me 2 hrs of paging thru the list of firearms that were up for auction. Like he had 10 1919, 3 FG42 (these are so rare that they can go upwards of $200,000 ea). It really blew may socks away.

Most of the weapons were sold for current market price - there were no deals.

He might have been one of the few guys who could have mounted an assault on YOUR compound. :cool:

No - Not even close

Mr. Heston lived in Beverly Hills.
This house is not in Beverly Hills.

This is a very impressive collection,
but I really doubt it belonged to Chuck Heston.
