More Than 600 Guns Hitting the Auction Block

Posted: Updated:

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – An auctioneer company is gearing up for an estate auction the likes of which they say they've never seen before: a personal collection of more than 600 pistols, shotguns and rifles, all ready to be sold to the highest bidder.

The collection belonged to Bill Hornaday of Shelbyville, who passed away suddenly seven months ago.

Hornaday once owned a pawn shop in town, which is where he acquired some of his guns after the business closed.

The collection includes both new and old guns, some highly collectible, like a Luger used by the Nazis in World War II.
Hornaday's wife says he was more fascinated with the knowledge of his guns and rifles than using them to go hunting or target shooting.

The auctioneers are expecting more than 1,000 people to attend the gun auction, which takes place Friday and Saturday, December 6 and 7 at the Calsonic arena in Shelbyville.  Each day begins with a preview at 7 a.m., followed by the auction which begins at 9 a.m.
