This is what I found at a gas station/casino in Nevada

Post by 357 S&W » Wed Aug 17, 2011 1:23 am

Friends,
I was coming back from my vacation at Yellowstone National Park and on the way we had to stop for gas and when I went inside to pick up some snacks for my kids, I was surprised to find this collection of guns. I asked the clerk he mentioned that it is a single man's collection over the years; too bad he is no more but his daughter decided to display the collection versus just keeping it in the vault. Thanks to her we all can have a look at his collection. It's mostly the old west collection and I am a avid admirer of such guns.
:cheers:

Looking at the pictures I thought it was a gunshop at first but after reading the post I was totally :shock: Those collector items in a gas station! I hope they got good security. Only in USA you can find such beauty in a gas station, God bless America :)

That's a tidy collection! Very nice group of commemoratives. Of course, also like a true Nevada gas station, I see slot machines in the background, too!

357, are you going to share any other pictures from your trip? I'd sure be interested to see some!
Regards,
tim

A real 'gunatic' :D
Hat's off to his daughter for respecting his collection.
