    who are the famous gun collectors of today?

    I just read an article about celebrities and their collections...

    Kelsey Grammer collects first-edition rare books,
    Tom Hanks collects manual typewriters,
    Demi Moore collects vintage designer clothing,
    Jane Seymour collects teapots,
    Jean Smart collects 20th-century American art pottery,
    Jenna Elfman collects rugs,
    Tony Curtis collects black-and-white photographs,
    and of course Jay Leno collects cars,

    But I was wondering who collects handguns? or Colts?

    Hank Williams Jr is pretty well known to have a wide collection of firearms.

    Paris Hilton collects videos...
    Brittany Spears collects umbrellas...
    Richard Simmons collects gym shorts...
    John Travolta collects homes in Central Florida...
    Anna Nicole Smith collected pill bottles...

    Not too many stars (what ever that term really means) collect guns...openly...but, two who I think might, are...Charlton Heston and Tom Selleck.

    The late Mel Torme` owned an extensive collection of Colt Single Action Army revolvers.

    A lot of NBA stars and rappers seem to be into guns. At least they seem to be getting into gunfights a lot lately.

    I would bet that Fiddy Cent has a colection of gatts that would rival any member's collection on this board.

    Today, The Shooting Wire mentioned that Tom Selleck was donating some guns from his collection to the NRA's National Firearms Museum, including the Sharps rifles he used in Quigley Down Under. If you're ever in the D.C. area, the National Firearms Museup is a pretty cool visit (and it's safely located in Virginia, rather than being in D.C. proper).

    Furthermore, he tried to enlist after 9/11. Bruce Willis rocks.

    Hi Blackeagle: My wife and I went to the NRA museum last year and it is fantastic. I just do not have the strength to stand long enough to enjoy it as much as I wish. It is really well done and has to be the finist displays of guns in the world.
