Not Your Ordinary Pistol

It started with a tv show that ran for one year. Battlestar Galactica. The year 1978. I was seven and madly in love with Dirk Benedict. A small budget film called Star Wars came out the year prior but it was really my crush on Dirk that sealed the deal. I just had to be a space pirate when I grew up.

Many moons later it dawned on me that one could not be a space pirate without a ray gun or two.

Various lithograph ray guns
Large, small, rusted, broken. I bought everything that came my way.
The ever changing art mural
As with most of our collections, they have been transformed into an art piece. So if Dirk ever does come by to visit me I am more than ready.
