(List of photos at bottom of page).

The tank park outside is the star of the show, but there is quite a wealth of firepower inside as well. I'm not into guns as much per se, but this is the best collection I have seen thus far. Aberdeen Proving Grounds seems to have just about every time of small arm used by major combatants over the past 100 or so years. So there are weapons from the US, UK, Sweden, France, Italy, Japan, Russia and on and on.
