From Columbus, Georgia, or vicinity circa 1959 comes this uncaptioned shot of a guy and his guns,
all ready for a well-regulated sleepover. 4x5 inch acetate negative from the Shorpy News Photo Archive.

OK, from left to right, Browning A5, Japanese Arisaka type 38, muzzleloader, of military type (not sure what). That's all I got right now. To much Bourbon.... Smile

Picking up where he left off

The muzzleloader looks to be a Springfield rifle chambered in .54, the primary arm of the Union during the Civil War

The next one with the scope looks to be a Marlin Model 66.

The next to the right is a Benjamin pneumatic pump air gun in .177.

I think the revolver is a Smith & Wesson Model 30.

And I have no clue what the rifle on the floor ism

The two rifles closest to the gentleman seem to be 22s. One possibly a Marlin, and the other a Mossburg. Or the Mossburg might be a Pump up pellet gun (Sheridan) due to the separate forend wood.

The .22 with the scope is one of the JC Higgins Model 28/29/30/31/32/34/36 series. They were produced by High Standard for Sears from the 1940s-1960s.

Notice the very distinctive stock.

Looks like Little Timmy has the beginnings of a diversified collection. Today he'd have a closet full of AR receivers, a Glock 19, 2 $400 never fired PSA ARs, and about 300 Glock mags (for Glocks he doesn't own) and 200 PMAGS, all to hedge against the next panic. Oh, and a 10/22.

Looking at the original photo (which is a little sharper) in the link...the pattern on the revolver's ejector rod makes me think it is an H&R .22...

Also looking at the original photo again...I would bet the shotgun is a Remington Model 11...it still has the inside the triggerguard safety that Remington retained for 20 or so years...I might be wrong but I think Browning switched over to the Garand style safety early on the Belgian guns...somebody on the forum might have more info on the changes.

I have this very rifle with scope. My dad gave it to me years ago. He got it for Christmas in his teens.
