    I've held, and fired, a 1928 Thompson. Just over 10 lbs unloaded. Around 18 lbs with full 50 round drum. Haven't fired a BAR, 15.9 lbs unloaded (1918 variant, sans bipod).

    So sue me.

    I just won the Powerball, you'll lose.

    Kriss Vector with a can. Shot one in TX a few years back. T’was a good time!

    Nice 1911.

    Lots of .45 ACP for the above.

    Not really a valuable gun, but an unmolested, no post 1920 changes, 1891 Carcano TS made in 1898 - the first year of manufacture for TS carbines.

    or a gyro jet pistol.

    Nothing different from what I’d buy now.

    A few high end bolt action hunting rifles, think performance not fancy.

    A 1940’s 1911 made by Singer

    Tommy Guns are sure fun to shoot, I’d take one

    H&K MP-5, ditto.

    A nice M-1

    Registered Magnum 3 1/2”

    S&W Model 19 no dash in 2 1/2”

    A Best Grade Holland & Holland double barrel in .577 Nitro Express, a mere $190,000 or so. I think those rifles are the most elegant looking ever built. Don

    A few years ago, I contemplated getting a 50BMG. TX is huge but I didn't find any public range that was less than a 3 hr drive. Too, once you get your jollies blowing up cinderblocks etc, what do I do with it? Decided no. Don

    MP 40, Thompson .45, MP-5. Oh and a Weatherby 460 magnum just in case there is a rogue elephant in the area.
