    As a young boy I used to visit Mr. Davis at the Mason Hotel often. My grandfather owned the Chrysler/ Plymouth dealership just a couple of doors way from the Mason Hotel. I could spend hours with Mr. Davis, setting in one of the old green colored leather chairs in the lobby, discussing his hobby of collecting guns.

    I had asked Mr. Davis what he was most proud of in his collection. Right away he responded that it would be his collection of the world's smallest working guns, they were wired onto a piece of wood and hung above the door of his personal...Read More

    It's a lot more than just firearms (although those impressive)! It's also pottery, campaign buttons, taxidermy, and instruments! Set aside a large chunk of time or do several different visits!

I had asked Mr. Davis what he was most proud of in his collection. Right away he responded that it would be his collection of the world's smallest working guns, they were wired onto a piece of wood and hung above the door of his personal room at the hotel.
He told me about a time that a hotel ‘guest’ tried to steal his small gun collection but he caught him before he checked out of the hotel. Since his death I have never seen that piece of plywood contain his favorites, nor the vast amount of presentation guns he was so proud of.

I think the beginning of the 'museum' was a mess and probably a bunch of guns grew legs and walked away. Today it is diluted/polluted with guns Mr. Davis would have never put into his collection such as the captured junk guns from the Tulsa Police Dept.
