Bought my first gun from Harry, an old Marlin bolt action .22, with someone else's initials carved in the stock. Cost me $75 in 1994. Rob that runs the range is a great guy too.

I just shot in a pistol competition there last Wednesday!

I've been in his shop a couple times. Nice guy.

Yep, sure did. From 1998-2000 I think, give or take a year. If anyone remembers a guy with a shaved head, tattoos, big mutton chops, and an even bigger mouth, that was me.

I'm suprised you would say that given his HUGE collection of Nazi Lugers & assorted other Nazi trinkets.

Bought my first gun there a little over a year ago. Pretty nice place. And yes, there really is a real bullet hole through a picture of a target on the wall. The range is pretty close to my apartment, and a good place to pop off a few rounds of pistol whenever you feel the need. That's one of my favorite stores to refer to whenever the subject of practical use of MGs comes up.

Why? One of my best friends collects WWII memorabilia. Are you saying Harry Beckwith collects it because he's pro Nazi? I just assumed he had an interest in WWII. Maybe I was naive.

I'm not going to say anything about what I think of his politics on an open forum. Regardless of his personal politics, Harry treated everyone I ever went down there with (hispanic, asian..) with respect. I will say this, I've never met anyone that collects only German WWII memorabilia that doesn't have leanings that direction.
