He Loved Guns
Elvis was from the South and he fully embraced the South’s enthusiasm for guns. He was an avid collector of guns and he liked to carry guns with him at all times.
It’s reported that Elvis owned about 37 different kinds of guns. After Elvis died, one of his guns was auctioned off for $28,000. Elvis spent some time in the U.S. Army, and although he wasn’t thrilled about being drafted, he was excited about the guns in the army.
