Took a last minute trip to Chicago this last weekend and hit the Chicago Art Institute. With no planning I was excited to learn about the George F. Harding, Jr. Arms (and Armor) Collection. It's an extensive collection with over 2000 pieces that the museum has had on display since 1982(?). It is amazing!

My phone's camera, coupled with having been drinking, can't do justice so I'm only posting a couple pics as samplers. Google for more.

I wonder how many hours went into each piece. Pretty stuff! I'll be in Chicago for an afternoon at the end of the month. Wouldn't mind seeing this stuff

No kidding. The irony is astounding.

Thanks for posting the pics. Those were incredible weapons back in their day.
