    One of a kind Walker for $9,000

    Just don't try shooting it as it will blow up. Wood replicas tend to do that you know. They'll never rust, but I guess one would have to oil them occasionally and inspect for either termites or fire ants.



    Apparently, this old dude, Robert A. Talbot, makes them. Here is the Link

    Here's the old gentleman wielding two of his creations.

    That is some very impressive woodworking. Even so, $9000? That kind of money would buy some really sweet functional firearms that I'd rather have.

    Hope the gentleman has no intentions of going to London anytime soon. He would get arrested and his guns confiscated, just like certain areas in this country. Beautiful craftsmanship, wish I was that handy with a whittling knife.

    Joe - you're absolutely right. Almost twenty years ago I bought a Webley bayonet in England and it set off all the alarms at Heathrow. I told them it was going to be checked in and wouldn't be carried by me on the flight. They let me through. Then about six years later later my bobby friend warned me not even to go near the airport with anything and that it was better to mail anything home instead.
