    I've seen these pics before on a different forum and they were not referred to as Charlton Heston's residence. Although it's an impressive collection (and estate), I doubt they were his.

    I had checked Snopes, and there's nothing about CH's guns. So, after starting this thing rolling, I forwarded what I received to Snopes. Perhaps they'll sort it all out.

    Is that door in #3 leading to a small firing range? And I think the vault door was from the gold vault at Ft Knox. That is one sweet gun closet no matter who it belongs to.

    I think so, they look like metal shooting gallery-type targets. Yes, even if it's not Heston's, I like it.

    And if you really need to learn about him, not only for his civil rights and gun rights advocacy, but for his importance to film as a visual media, you can try this link:

    I would want one of those Sturmgewehrs over almost everything in there!

    Even my coworker, (the biggest liberal the world has ever known!) enjoyed that basement.

    I wonder what type of permits one would need for a flamethrower?

    $200 tax stamp for a destructive device (flamethrower.)

    And WHO did it? How'd these pictures get out! Justhomp? Did you snap a couple shots of my basement last time you came over?! That's it, no one is allowed back!

    Update from Snopes.com

    Hey all,

    After starting the ball rolling, I did notify Snopes. They e-mailed me the following link to their final verdict:

    http://www.snopes.com/photos/architecture/gunvault.asp

    Still a pretty cool vault and collection.
