The collection was sold and moved on 2 March 2018. The store is still open. He has guns, swords and other memorabilia for sale. One star for no museum.

If you love old guns you will love this museum. It's 5.00 per person to walk thru. And it's not very big but has tons of guns to look at.

Need to enter this Museum from the retail business. This is a privately owned individual collection, but has more firearms and etc than the State Archives in Montgomery
