“My greatest fear is that someone will break in and I won’t be able to decide what gun to shoot them with.” Dan Bilzerian has a good time. And he has quite the gun collection. And cars, women, boats, planes and money. Oh, and a great face of hair. The pic and quote above are from his Instagram machine (NSFW) . . .

If you aren’t familiar with the professional poker player and firearms enthusiast, there’s some light reading here and here to help. “When I was a kid I never wanted to be classy, I just wanted to be rich.” He can check that one off the to-do list, I suppose.

Is this kind of conspicuous consumption a net positive for gun ownership? ‘Normalize’ it, glorify it, give it some celebrity status, include it as part and parcel of the coveted lifestyle that nets Mr. Bilzerian his massive social media following? Here are a few more firearms-related photos from Instagram. Well, some of the non-R-rated ones anyway.

Shout out to my buddy, “German Peter,” for showing me how the other side lives.

  1. I lost about 90 minutes to his Instagram machine a few months back. He’s the poster child for conspicuous consumption, and good for him. Everybody needs a spare hottie in their gun safe. He’s also vehemently pro-2A, which is good for him as well.

    However, I really don’t think he’s doing anything at all for the furtherance of the pro-gun agenda or the normalization of it, either. At best he’s a neutral influence, but for a lot of people, his whole… thing… would be a turnoff. I would never tell him to change how he lives (not that he’d listen anyway), but I don’t really think he’s having any real impact on the 2A debate, in either direction.

  2. I must be missing something.. Aside from maybe the Barrett, not a super impressive collection.

    The boats and cars and women are obviously where most of his money goes.

  3. Like the character Zero Mostel played in Mel Brooks “The Producers” said, “Flaunt it baby. Flaunt it! “

  4. Three heart attacks before the age of 30. Yikes. Maybe go a bit easy on either the girls or the guns. Or at least on the boats.

  5. I can’t decide of which i am more envious: the guns, the cars, or the women.

    edit: massive amounts of blow is really hard on the ticker.

  6. I like rich guys like this; they live like I would if I had that money.

    Better than the stogy bastards who just collect money unto itself.

    What’s the point of being rich if your not buying cool shit?

  7. “My greatest fear is that someone will break in and I won’t be able to decide what gun to shoot them with.”

    I think we just found tomorrow’s quote of the day.

  8. No: First, the one good woman to walk the good red road for the purpose of raising a family; Then, once the homestead is self-sufficient; THEN, some fast cars and a bunch of guns; it’s all about the priorities.

    • Different strokes for different folks. (That is not original with me.)

      Some people are wired to make the money and live large, and by spending all that money they make it possible for a whole lot of other folks to make a living and marry the girl next door and raise a family. It all balances out in the end.

  9. You know, Dan, I’ve always liked you. I may not have said it as often as I should have but I think you know how I feel.

  10. Well… I really hate that guy now. But only out of pure gun envy. For just that TAVOR alone… hell… any more for one of those under folder AKs even!

  11. He reminds me of Mayweather… aka he is cool in my book with how he spends his money.

    Might as well make use of it.

    So many haters commenting in those articles. I am sure he knows 99.9% of those women would bounce if he lost his money, the guy isn’t an idiot. In fact, the women are the ones that annoy me. The freakin’ leeches.

  12. In some way, on some level, it’s almost as though how this man chooses to live his life might not be any of my business. Huh.

  13. He might possibly be . . . the most interesting man in the world. Really. And he might even look the part when his beard grays a little.

    Stay thirsty my friends.

  14. In relation to the rest of his gear, that gun collection sucks. Still, super, super cool dude in my book. Just not because of the guns.

  15. That is the first time I’ve ever seen an SRM-1216 in the wild.

    It’s a nice gun collection, but I think I’ve got better. Then again, he’s clearly got enough to occupy himself without going shooting all the time.

    • Does the 50k figure include the girl? I mean, she’s cute, but I regularly pay far less than that for…

      Y’know what? Nevermind.
