    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:

    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. ​
