There is so many things wrong with this story I really don't know where to begin.
Like calling semi automatic weapons automatic weapons.. I am of the opinion I doubt any of those firearms were automatics or sub-machine . Hell the average gun owner I know has that many guns if not more.

Australian police find 328 guns, 4.2 tons of ammo at farm - World News

As well as the Glock handguns, the haul contained military-style guns such as AK-47s, MP5 sub-machine guns and rifles featuring telescopic lenses.
An audit of the men's weapons was carried out sometime in the past two months, in accordance with Australian firearms law, but police would not say if that led to the raid.
Any evil glock?:eek: :cuckoo::eusa_whistle:

In the center of it all
Why does it matter how many he owns?
Why do stories about Australia's gun laws matter at all?

Bigreb claimed in the OP that the "average" gun owner owns as many, if not more guns than this guy (328), I'm asking him if he really is deluded enough to actually believe that.

from the photos

the vast majority of them appear to be bolt actions
But not all.

Are you really so deluded that you think the "average" gun owner owns 328 guns?
I said the average gun owner I KNOW

Most I know have at least two fully stocked gun safes and looking for another.

Just a thought, but what does somebody need with 328 firearms? For hunting and defense and sport, I could see anywhere from three to ten, but 328 seems very excessive.

150! I personally have all of 3!
It's a hobby, what can I say.
Some people like collecting cars or baseball cards, I like tools and lot's of them.

Nor would I say it either, I didn't. I said the average one I know.
