Jerry Lewis gun collection

The gun collection of Jerry Lewis was auctioned off. The media reported that it was a "massive" collection... of 73 firearms. Lewis was a noted quickdraw artist in Hollywood, as was Sammy Davis.

Edit: another headline called it a "massive arsenal"...

Hmm, my spreadsheet shows that I may be approaching "massive" levels -- better transfer some more to the kids.

Here in the "gun land" of the Mountain State I know guys with two or three times that of Jerry's "massive" collection. I know one guy who has that many in just shotguns he's been "collecting" for over 50 yrs.

I remember an article years ago referring to Hollywood cowboy great Glenn Ford as the "fastest gun in Hollywood". He was said to be the real thing and he did some great westerns. I guess some of these old school guys really got into character. Like Steve McQueen and Paul Newman did with cars and bikes.

and all those 12 gauge riot shotguns, how scary.

The tone of the writing was a bit slanted. No fear gentleman, I have no doubt our collections would be characterized as 'arsenals' by the media, especially when thn find those dozens of rounds of deadly sniper ammo, and clips, don't forget the clips.

Owning that many guns would be a nightmare. I mean, like, how could you figure out the keys for all those gun locks?

What's a gun lock? Oh, you mean that heavy target that comes with each new gun?
