Why We Love Guns – Growing Your Collection
As American gun owners, we are passionate about our collections and finding the right firearms to add to it. According to the Trace, a study done at Harvard revealed that the top 14% of gun owners in America (7.7 million people or 3% of American adults) own an average of 17 guns. While this seems like a solid collection in itself, many enthusiasts agree it is rather easy to get to 17 when you end up inheriting guns from your parents and grandparents. Whether you enjoy collecting historical firearms, go hunting, competitive shooting or just an enthusiast looking to add to your arsenal, D4 Guns shares this passion and seeks to supply your collection with the next firearm on your wish list.

Every so often, gun enthusiasts come across some rare “once in a lifetime” type of gun. In 1987, Hitler’s Golden Walther pistol showed up at an auction after being taken in 1945 by an American soldier during a raid of his apartment and was brought to the United States. Firearms such as this are a piece of history and at the time, the whopping selling price of $114,000 was the highest price ever paid for a military memorabilia at an auction. Jesse James, the legendary American outlaw during the mid to late 1800s was eventually killed by a fellow gang member with a 44.-caliber Smith & Wesson. This pistol sold in 2003 for a price of $350,000. Our 26th President Teddy Roosevelt whom pursued hunting in his pastime had a double-barreled shotgun made by the Fox Gun Company that he used on an African safari in 1909 and it ended up selling for $862,500 in 2010.
