LOS ANGELES — Police investigating the death of a Los Angeles man uncovered an arsenal inside his home and garage — more than 1,200 guns and about two tons of ammunition, authorities said Monday.

Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr. Andrew Smith called the number of rifles, pistols and shotguns staggering. Many had never been fired and some were still wrapped in boxes, with price tags still attached.

"Our truck couldn't carry it all," Smith told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1HFAKVn). "We had to go back and make another trip."

There were no signs of foul play. Police have found no evidence the man, who has not been identified, was involved in criminal activity.

Police made the discovery after the man's decomposing body was found in a car down the street from his home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood.

Detectives want to find out why he had so many guns and are examining the weapons to determine if they have been linked to any crime.

Paranoid freak ready for war?

Some here might argue he didn't have ENOUGH ammo...

When I first read the headline I thought that they had found lib's bunker.

I did too, but I remembered he's posted within the last 24 hours so he's cleared....

Woman collect shoes or purses

Guys collect guns.

Not trying to be judgmental, but do you know of any woman that has 2 tons worth of shoes or purses?

A pair of shoes weight maybe 1-2 lbs. An ammo tin holding 200 rounds of M1 ball weighs at least 15 pounds. Ammo is extremely heavy by comparison.

Yes, but two tons is still two tons. That's a lot of ammo either way.

If it was all M1 ball it would be 53,000 rounds if they are accounting for ammo tin weight. If they weren't and that was added in, its probably closer to 40,000

I go through 200-400 rounds per practice without any trouble.. With the ammo shortage that we have seen it is not unthinkable to have this much .If you can afford it.
