    lol i think i have weapon envy. thats how my basement should look, and if i'd stop selling things off, it could happen. my wife might have something to say though. it looks like a great museum quality collection they have.
    i like how they have it set up. here is one pic of my basement looking into the war room.

    You can take photos but none that have windows or access points in them. I've been down there my self and it is a fantastic collection with some very rare and early stuff. No wonder alot of the items feature in books!

    You'll also notice its called a collection rather than a museum as all the weapons are for use and not on exhibit. The various servicable weapons are often used for demonstration purposes so are kept in A1 condition.

    All live except for the purpose deactivated DP and SKN weapons which are official British military. The curator (If you can call him that) is a good friend of mine and has written many books and is well known for his STEN and No.32 scope books.
