London, Oct 9 (ANI): Legendary popstar Eric Clapton is selling 13 of his exclusive shotguns at an auction, which can bring him more than 500,000 pounds.

The I Shot The Sheriff hitmaker has an elite collection of the guns, which includes James Purdey & Sons gun, Watson Bros gun, EJ Churchill gun and many more.

I like a gun to look like a working tool but its a magnificent piece of art as well, The Sun quoted Clapton, as saying.

The popstar also has an attractive gun engraved with Clapton sitting under a tree playing a guitar.

The gun lover is selling the guns to make space for more exclusive guns.

Clapton, 63, took up shooting five years ago and has collected shotguns by some of the great British gunmakers.

The sale, on December 11 at Hammersmith, West London, will be conducted by auctioneers Holts, of Norfolk.
