Ted Nugent is a well known supporter of the Second Amendment. As a singer, songwriter, and political activist, he’s always been on the forefront of sharing his views on firearms with impressive vigor. Considering the success he’s had as a musician over his lifetime, you can assume that his gun collection is top-notch with rare pieces you don’t just see anywhere.
Now that he’s getting a little older, he’s decided to part with some of his famed collection which not only includes firearms, but classic cars and guitars as well. All of these items were up for sale on March 27th. Let’s look at some of the guns that were a part of this extensive and impressive gun collection.
Ted Nugent Explains Why
Nugent believes that “guns are meant to be shot,” so with such a large collection at his disposal, it’s unlikely he was even able to use them all. The fact that he had so many guns led to issues being able to catalog and keep track of his collection. Although, he does have plenty of room on his 340 acre hunting ranch in Jackson, Michigan to have as many guns as he wants to own.
Ted’s Favorite Gun
One of Ted’s favorite styles of guns is the .44 Magnum revolver. He has a variety in this type, including Smith & Wesson’s Model 29. There are all kinds of Magnums, some with 2 inch barrels and those that go up to 12 inches. He purchased his first .44 in 1969 when he was 20-years-old.
A famous themed gun that he acquired as a gift in the 70s was the KISS engraved Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver. He received this gun and a matching display case from the band since he had toured with KISS during that time.
Ted Knows His Guns
Another caliber that Ted is a big fan of is the 10mm cartridge. This is a favorite in semi-automatic defensive handguns. The collection being auctioned off includes several 10mm Glocks and a few Colt 1911 pistols.
A few other notable guns that were auctioned off include the Renaissance Engraved Browning Hi-Power Pistol, the LaRue Tactical LT-762 OBR Semi-Auto Rifle, Colt Python .357 Magnum Revolver, the Smith & Wesson K-38 Revolver, Dan Wesson Model 460-460 Rowland, JP Sauer Drilling Shotgun 12 Gauge, and the Smith & Wesson Model 29 with 10 inch Barrel Revolver.
Ted even had some signature bullets made that were .50 BMG, and will be up for auction. The “Ted Nugent Ammo” was made in the USA, of course.
See Pictures From the Auction
You can check out the Barley Auction House for pictures from the auction day that took place in Waco, Texas. They managed to raise $36,000 for Ted Nugent’s Kamp for Kids. This is a 30-year-old organization that Ted put together that teaches kids about nature and the outdoor lifestyle. They learn skills about first aid, archery, fishing, and survival techniques. It’s a great way to get city kids out into the wild to experience a different kind of lifestyle then they are used to.
